Miss Pole Dance 2014 NSW Heats

In an earlier post about my intentions for 2014, I mentioned that I’d like to compete in Miss Pole Dance this year. My lack of posting since earlier in the year is due to how hard I had been training for Miss Pole Dance. On top of that, in June I started prepping for a […]

Don’t Give up!

For a few weeks now I seem to have lost my polejo. It’s gone. Vanished. Disappeared. No idea where it is and no idea when it will be coming back. The most disappointing thing about this for me is that there is nothing I love more than pole dancing, except maybe lifting weights. Let’s face […]

Pole Dancing Moves: Pole Practice

One thing I’ve been commended on recently is my dedication and hard work, so being off the pole for the last 10 days because the studio has been closed has been really hard. I do 5 days of weights per week, but to be fair, nothing can prepare you for pole. There is nothing in […]

Stretch, Stretch, STRETCH!

One thing I’ve noticed over the last few months is that not only am I getting a hell of a lot stronger, I’m also starting to get more flexible. I finally got into a flat right leg split with straight legs a week or two ago, I’m getting closer and closer to a flat jade […]

Pole Dancing Moves: DVD Cover (Extended Butterfly) Combo

This is a combo that I’ve never really been able to make look pretty because I could never get my body up into the jamilla (cradle) to carry on with the rest, but for some reason with my small wins I’ve been getting lately on my pole, I seemed to make it look so good […]

Pole Dancing Moves: The Cartwheel Kickup

This move has been the bain of my existence for months now. The instruction from the teacher said, go down as though you’re going into a cartwheel, but instead of putting your hand on the ground, put it on the pole. Your feet will go over the same way. Just don’t look up. So what […]

This is a bit of a double post. On Friday my friend Mark at Gold Hat Photography took some photos of me for his 10 Minute Portrait package range that he offers on his website. The package aims to bring out your true personality in the photos while of course making you look amazing (check, […]

Pole Move: The Allegra

I’m usually pretty good at the moves that involve skin to stick to the pole but not as good as the ones that require a tonne of strength or balance, so learning the Allegra was pretty cool. It’s definitely one of the prettier moves I’ve learned. There is one problem with this move. The bruise. […]

Pole Moves: Split on the pole

I did a catch up class on Monday with the fabulous Chilli Rox because I have been sick as a dog and missed a few of my classes. I haven’t had a class with Chilli for so long that I had forgotten how hard her classes were. I don’t think I’ve had a warm up […]
