Writer, animator, and pole dance/aerialist extraordinaire in training. I love to spin!

Pole. Running. Aerial silks. Lyra. GoGo.

Age 21. Living and loving in Colorado. Started poling from the ground up in late March 2012. No previous dance/gymnastic experience. Or any physical activity, actually. This is me derpin' around, for the most part. Enjoy!

 

Alone in a strangers house with my new BlackMilks? Yea, it’s handstand practice time #handstand #acro #blackmilk #blackmilkaerialist

This is my latest progress with rainbow marchenko on the pole by the way. Holy crap is it difficult. But just getting some stability in holding my hips up is a milestone.

A combo I was thinking about today. Not sure if/what I might use it for, still have to play. 

Skip to 0:30 to get past the boring psych myself up bit. I don’t know why but even when I edit the video it still loads the full one. 

There are a lot of things I could improve on here, but I think it’s really important to post works-in-progress videos. Not only does it help ourselves gain perspective our own progression, but I think it’s good for the entire community to realize that not everything starts out perfect. We shouldn’t beat ourselves up when something doesn’t immediately look like a professional performance. 

Here is the official video from my performance at Miss Pole Dance Oklahoma. Things always look so much nicer on fancy cameras :) I still have trouble watching my first pass on static, and also when my shorts got all caught. 

On to the next one! 

Thanks to a suggestion from @ninapoles, I have a new method to train my shoulder mount dead lifts. The video cuts it off but, I start from the ground and work all the way to fully sitting up. These are freaking hard! #pole #poledance #conditioning #deadlift #aerial #abs

Titanic to aerial shoulder mount at last! Booya! I love breaking through pole plateaus. #pole #poledance #titanic #plateau #progress #booya

Some flexibility progress… 
Still determined to make that rainbow marchenko mine someday.

Marlo Fisken at our recital this past Saturday. I really hope that one day my movement can be half as fluid as hers.

I can hear the universe sighing in awe of her wonderousness whenever Marlo dances. 

I’m convinced this woman was invented by the gods just to taunt us. 

Cleaning up my circus climb…Why is this so much more difficult on silks?? It’s not fair.
