I’M BACK!!!!!

For some reason, i haven’t been able to log into Tumblr since my last post in June/July, whenever it was. It’s been really furstrating and i couldn’t understand why, it’s like my laptop decided it couldn’t be bothered anymore….

Now my laptop has broken….so i’m borrowing one until i buy a new one, so fingers crossed it was just that!!

Now i can start posting things again :)

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!

anti-salon asked: Just saw your video for midlands competition. Congrats on the amazing costume and well put routine! Did you take ballet classes? Have you ever been on pointe before? It seemed your weight was way too much on your ankles, and that must have hurt like hell?

Thank you :)

I only did the usual ballet for a bit as a little girl and I’ve only had pointe shoes for about a year. Just been desperate to use them in a routine. It didn’t hurt anywhere, but my legs were shaking in my performance so I wasn’t where I should have been or how I’d practiced dancing in them. Got some great feedback from a judge on how to improve which has been really useful. If I use them again, I hope I won’t be too shaky again!

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!!!!
