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

Pole. Aerial. Contortion. Movement.

Age 22. 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!

 

Every time I watch Sergia Lousie Anderson’s nationals routine I see this and I always mean to give it a try and I finally got around to it tonight #leap #backbend #dance #danceybitches

Ever since my needle got all pretty I’ve been meaning to try this. Not as nice but there IS this massive pole in the way you know #rainbowmarchenko #bitches #iwin #alltheprizes #contortion #pole #poledance #fuckingtakethatspine

Debating whether or not I want to spend $260 to go to a pole retreat in Chicago. Everyone attending will teach a special class, so there is no other fee besides airfare and food. It’s probably totally worth it. But I’m so broke right now!

Today’s inspiration…

We worked on Phoenix today in Ken’s class. I’m way closer than I thought I’d be! Just need to work on technique. Give it a few weeks :) I had a blast but my wrists didn’t #pole #poledance #wrists #polebruises #burn #skinburn #burns #ow #owwie #nopainnogain #artispain

I would say this was improvement in about 50% flexibility and 50% technique… I could easily get my foot to my head in other positions in 2012, but I didn’t know what I was doing in this pose. It just goes to show how important technique is when you are working on your flexibility! Take lots of classes!
