Flight Fitness Open Day trapeze skills.
I haven’t seen a pole and fitness studio with a trapeze yet that I can get to easily, so to now have one and to actually have a go was amazing!
The coffin (2nd image) was scary because you just see yourself moving up towards the ceiling….that means there’s a bigger gap to the floor! It was an amazing feeling to let go though, and I felt like I was floating.
The only downside is I got a bruise on my bum from shifting myself into position so I didn’t fall off….oh well!!

Flight Fitness Open Day
Had an amazing time at Flight Fitness in Leicester trying out some aerial hoop and trapeze. I have always wanted to give them a go and jumped at the chance!
Letting go of the hoop for the first time was terrifying! I even got cramp in my foot I was so nervous and was paranoid about pointing my feet in front of Lauren! She’s a brilliant instructor and makes everything look so effortless and beautiful, but also achievable to all of us who hadn’t even been up there before. Really can’t wait to do more hoop!
This is INSANE!! I can’t even do an Iron X yet, let alone hold someone’s body weight with it!! Just amazing. This is why I started pole dancing, to show people the strength and beauty of the art

Smiffy’s or Snazaroo?
United Pole Artist’s ‘Bringing Sexy Back’ fortnight 2013
My video performed to A Perfect Circle’s ‘Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm Of The War Drums’
This is a big deal for me. I NEVER dance like this. When I started pole I was determined to show the artistic and athletic side of pole dancing to steer clear of the stigma associated with it. But I have to say, although this was terrifying and I felt really awkward doing it, it was also a lot of fun to try something different, and also put my boots to good use!
Made ridiculous progress in 2 days with my forearm backbend/crab!!
On the 6th I had done 2 hours of pole out in the sunshine and then did a half hearted go at flexing to make the most of the hot weather
On the 8th, I did nothing strenuous all day until the evening and this was about half and hour into a flexing/stretching sesh wearing my waist warmer and working up a real sweat…still annoyed I couldn’t quite touch my feet GRRRRR!!!!
Snow White Maid Of Honour Dress
Made this for a friend who was MOH at a fairytale wedding. I took lots of images to her and discussed design ideas and this was the finished dress!
Blue velvet bodice, short puff sleeves with red satin teardrop inserts, lace trimmed neckline, champagne gold satin skirt and cuffs with crystal organza overlay, finished with some gold floral embroidery pieces.
Making costumes is so much fun and i’m itching to do some more fairytale pieces!
