Short and sweet static combo 💃🏼
I’m trying to improve my fluidity on static pole. It’s so hard 😂
One of my favorite #pddrop that I’ve been teaching to my intermediate students. Tag a friend who you think would love to try it! Happy poleing 🙌🏻❤️🦋 Music halsey without me 🎶 @iamhalsey
Slip 'n' Glide is a hypothetical pole dancing studio - inspired by the friends I made at uni through taking up this perhaps more unconventional hobby. I was sick of seeing all the branding for pole studios featuring silhouettes of slim, sexy women, curly/girly typefaces and cliché colour palettes, and of hearing people who have no experience pole stereotyping those who do it, especially considering what I now know - pole can be sexy and empowering, but before that it is sweaty, sticky, squeaky, bloody sore and anything but sexy. It's also not just for girls. The branding for Slip 'n' Glide (the rest to follow soon) has been designed to show pole dancing's testing/physical nature, the vibrant personalities of the people who do it and the effects it has on every body, not matter your background, gender or dress size.
This was a flip I learnt last week from the ever awesome @annarohnbogner but the video is from one of my classes this week.
I wanted to take this chance to reflect on my pole journey so far and where I am. I’m not one to share like this often but sharing is caring.
I’ve been doing pole for just over a year now, I have good weeks and bad ones, just like anyone and sometimes I progress and sometimes I feel like I’m starting from scratch. All I can say is I love it no matter what and I haven’t had this much confidence in my body and self for a long time in this way.
This is all possible for me because @momentum.pole.aerial is an amazing space, filled with such wonderful, inspiring and encouraging people. It’s no wonder why I can’t stay away when you have that support to do better even when you aren’t doing the best or having the best day.
I’ve come a long way in a year but know that my journey has only just begun. I want to learn as much as I can and to do it justice I must take the time and have the patience to do so. I have my strengths and I don’t see weakness, only areas to be improved upon, and I want to improve and so it will come in time!
I’ve found this has rambled on a bit so I’ll leave it there but if you’ve taken the time to read this thank-you for that and I hope it hasn’t been to incoherent 😂
So trying to practice some of the flow work we have been practicing in class lately. I've been trying to do something to this song since before Christmas. It's nothing fancy and pretty simple, but I'm liking it😊. *I don't own this song. Song is Bitches broken hearts by Billie Eilish*
