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!





Pictures of me in my pants keep appearing….

Seems like the Leicester Comedy Festival Opening Party was the best free gig I’ve ever done as photographers keep sending me pictures – even now 3 months after the event! For a while Facebook was full of pictures of me in my pants – always good for my day job. These were taken by Nicole’s boyfriend Mr. Denyer and they are lovely. These are a great portrayal of my dancing style, and he even got a sneaky sniper crowd shot in as well. Good work!
