Strong Or Weak Arm – Is It What You Think?

Strong Or Weak Arm – Is It What You Think?
I’ve always thought that my strong arm was my right arm. It’s the hand I write and use the computer mouse with as well. Just because it’s my dominant hand does it mean that it’s my strong hand when it comes to pole dancing? I’ve been thinking about this recently as I’ve been going over harder moves and working on my strength training. I find that when it comes to...

Tips For The Ayesha

Tips For The Ayesha
Ayesha, Ayesha, Ayesha. There are not enough words to sum up the frustration and hours of attempts that this move has taken me. I thought I had been able to do the Ayesha for a few years now but it’s only recently that I’ve come to realise that there’s a better way for me to do this move and as such I can do it properly now. I always find with most pole move and tricks there’s...

Gemini Plank or Flatlined Scorpio… What’s The Difference?

Gemini Plank or Flatlined Scorpio… What’s The Difference?
We all have different names for pole dancing moves depending on where we learn and who teaches us. The difficulty comes from talking to other people and having crossed wires when talking about the same move. The biggest confusion for me comes from the Gemini and Scorpio moves and variations – everyone knows them by a different name, so I’m trying to figure out what is what! When I first learnt these...

How Good Are You… Really?

How Good Are You… Really?
When it comes to most things, people seem to down play their talents. What would you say if someone asked you if you were a good singer, if you have good computer skills or if you were a good driver? A lot of people tend to say that they are okay, rather than saying how good they really are. I wonder if this is the same for Pole Dancing? Apparently men are much better at selling themselves than women....

Some Words of Wisdom

Some Words of Wisdom
I just wanted to share a little excerpt from a book I’m reading. The authors point out that: “…[in regard to inaction] Actions could have had results. It is generally better to do something rather than nothing, because action just might have a positive effect. There’s even more to the advantage of action over inaction…it’s certain that inaction will have NO benefit.” What Are You Waiting...

My First Day Back On The Pole

My First Day Back On The Pole
It’s always very nerve-racking when you try something new for the first time… But what about when you try something not so new for the first time in a while? I have just moved house and as such had to take my pole down about a month before I moved, so that all evidence of the pole was removed. In my experience landlords see my pole as a gold mine… Just because I put a pole up, doesn’t...

Is Pole Dancing Difficult?

Is Pole Dancing Difficult?
I’m always getting people asking ‘Is Pole Dancing Difficult?’ and there’s really no straight answer. It simply is Yes and No. Is it difficult as much as anything new is – everytime you try a new move you will probably find it difficult but once you’ve got that move nailed, usually it’s a piece of cake. It Isn’t Difficult… Pole Dancing is not as...

The Road to Competition…

The Road to Competition…
I just finished competing at Miss Pole Dance Oklahoma Competition and I’d have to say that this has been my best competition yet.
