Here is the official video from my performance at Miss Pole Dance Oklahoma. Things always look so much nicer on fancy cameras :) I still have trouble watching my first pass on static, and also when my shorts got all caught. 

On to the next one! 

My GOD, so much drama in this performance! Literally every move you make is so calculated and your facial expression the whole time is just perfect. I really like your super smooth transitions on spinny pole and how easily you get into Titanic and then you just…let…your hands…go…super slow and everyone cheers. I love that.

Were you going for Starfish at the beginning? I’m gutted for you, that would’ve been awesome, although with my foot grip that move would never in a billion years work for me. Well, not everything works all the time. The most important thing is that you didn’t let it bum you out and you just kept going. And you rocked it! Awesome performance, love =)

Some more at home pole!

I got my pole super warm today and decided to have a go at Brass Monkey. I only learned this move recently, I think people found it awkward to teach me this one because I’m a leftie so I just ended up leaving it out!

Does anybody else like, stick their chin into the pole when they come down into the Flag grip in this one? I always find the pole is right on my neck like I’m trying to grip with it, haha. Nerves, maybe?

Under a Pole Troll's Bridge: Pole Dancing: The Sexy Debate

I had a thought in the shower and it turned into this. I just wanted to put my thoughts about the sexy and athletic sides of pole dancing into words, so here they are.

This is my opinion. This is what I think. If you want to hate me and flame me, that’s cool. If you want to write me a five page essay about how wrong I am, that’s cool too. Just know that I’m just a pole dancer with a keyboard, same as you and I’m sure I still have a lot to learn

I had a really good stretch at home today! I practiced my oversplits, did some back and shoulder stretches and I took a good look at my needle in the mirror for the first time to really see what needs improving.

Apart from my back, my shoulders are really letting the side down in this stretch. They’re pulled way too far forward and too low so I find it really difficult to stretch them out to pull my leg higher. I gave them a good few stretches to get them extra warm and noticed an immediate difference in how high my leg got behind my head.

It’s still very far away, but it’s always good to pinpoint exactly what you need to work on! Tumblr polers, gymnasts, contortionists, yogis and you lovely bendy folks, any advice for increasing shoulder flexibility?

I know that if I want my body to be able to do amazing, bendy things I have to be nice to it and treat it well; give it lots of rest and only push it as far as it can go.

But damn, I want to be bendy so bad. I’m going to keep working on my back flexibility and one day I’ll be able to say I’m proud of how hard I’ve worked and how far I’ve come with it!
