Pantera, Miss Pole Dance and Pole Divas!!

Lots have happened in the past month!! Pantera came to the Purity Studio, and taught a brilliant Pole Workshop and a few private lessons. She worked us all very hard, not all of it was on the pole part of it was core strength work in pairs, and showing us good handstand techniques.

Here are a couple of shots from the day:

The following day was Miss Pole Dance UK at the Scala, Kings Cross. It was an exciting day full of pole jamming, interviews, fliming and gossiping…. oh and a pole competition too!!! The competition was brilliant, 900 in the crowd all applauding each of the dancers. I went on first, extreemly nervous, but I had a lot of fun, despite having to alter part of my routine as I didn’t have grip (of all the times!!) By going on first it meant I could sit back and watch the rest of the competitors. Everyone had such amzing and unique styles and was a brilliant show to watch. The winner was Alesia Vazmitsel, very elegant and graceful.

The next week I headed to Brighton to compete in the last heat for Pole Divas, as it was the last heat lots of people had decided to enter, and it was tough. Again I was first on, but fortunatley I had excellent grip and walked away very pleased that I had done the best I could in my performance. All of the performances were very strong and different, my friend Jo Dandridge won the heat and will be going to the finals in Manchester on the 23rd November.

Here are some photos from my routine:
