Kaitlin Haney is looking to get moving.Kaitlyn haney slings coffee behind the counter in a West Sedona cafe. Haney has lived in the area for eight years and plans to one day move to Oregon.

Haney, a barista in West Sedona, came to the area when she was a sophomore in high school, and she said that she still misses her old home.

“I’ve been here for eight years,” she said. “Moved here from California — Pismo Beach — and I miss it.”

Currently spending her free time doing acrobatics with silks, Haney said she would love to travel the country under the big top.

“I want to join the circus,” she said, adding that she trapeze work would be interesting to her. “Anything that pushes my body and looks really cool. It’s fun and you get to dress up and be a whole new character. You don’t have to be yourself.”

The circus hasn’t always been a goal for her, but she said that getting into silk dancing in recent years has given her inspiration.

“I’ve been rock climbing and slack lining a long time now and I just wanted something new,” she said. “I don’t know, it’s just beautiful. It’s kind of like climbing around and being a spider.”

She added that unlike some physical hobbies others get into, it doesn’t require strength in just the upper body or just the lower body, and that building overall strength is key.
