This girl should not have any problems finding another job…

Pity it’s a hoax but it’s a very entertaining one 😉





Very Rough Sketch Out of A Routine

16 07 2010

**DELETED**

So, true to my word for once here is a video of my very rough sketch out of a routine to Florence and the Machine’s ‘Heavy In Your Arms’. I didn’t put in a many big moves as I wanted to, and there is a lot wrong with it flow wise but the fundamental ideas are there. I will work on it, refine it and make it better. Not sure what I will use it for yet (I have already registered this year’s competition music) but it’s always good to have a routine to a song that I feel very passionately about.

This is my song, hopefully by uploading this video I am effectively shotgunning the use of it in Leicester at least! Hehe.

Edited: After going away for the weekend, clearing my brain then watching this routine again I HATE it. It’s actual rubbish and I’m not going to put another one up again until I am happy with it. Which, knowing me, will probably be never. I saw the UKAPP videos and realised I have so much work to do it is unreal if I want to be taken seriously.





Meeting the Pole Stars: Pantera Blacksmith

9 07 2010

Pantera is an absolutely brilliant performer, and after watching her go tonight and hearing about her training routine I am more inspired than ever to get going on the pole again. I have been relaxing a little more than I should have been lately but it was needed to sort myself out generally.

Anyway! On to the good stuff. She is so strong she can hold her moves for a very long time. Everything she does is so sure and confident, she really knows what she is doing. She has been doing it for 11 years though, she is one of the original old school girls who kick started this whole movement and I absolutely thank her for that.

Photos of her in action:

She also met her twin, Nicole. Apparently they have the same chin!

To end the evening I snagged a splits photo with her, I absolutely love this photo:

Brilliant performer, inspiring training regime and generally fantastic to watch. Can’t wait for Alethea Austin next week!





Bouncy Bouncy, oh such a good time….

Excitement!!!

16 06 2010

This is a bit of a personal note in that no one except pole ladies will know what I’m talking about but:

Today I did a wicked move, something I’ve been trying to crack for ages.

I did the Twisted Grip.

This is amazing, because I’ve been trying to do it for so long but I think the hard training, situps and occasional sneaky chocolate are really starting to make a difference. This is such a personal achievement, especially after my massive crisis of confidence last month. For once I am really really pleased with my body.

Well done body, you have done a good thing. I will feed your favourite things (humous, apples and tea) tomorrow. Good work!

Second night in the new house:





Second practise video – spinning pole

31 05 2010

It’s officially the last night in our beautiful house, and it’s only just sunk in we are actually leaving. So, after all the cleaning and packing I have recorded another video having a mess about on the spinning pole. Not serious, no routine shizz just a bit of fun on a bank holiday Monday. Enjoi!
