Raw training footage straight from today’s jam… so some brand new stuff for me..
Tried out a little static combo with my own flair from Daniel Rosen- Pole Artist and a super funky transition out of my dork side dragons tail from @karemgutierrez

I very rarely train from Instagram but it’s been fun to play with a few new things and share pole time and encourage each other with Megan Dani Andrea and Mischka - Pole Athlete

Gorgeous transition to dragons tail I did with new mummma Bendy Kate way back when travel was allowed!

I literally had 30 minutes for a quick class prep spin after Pilates class and 4 privates and in between school drop off and pick up! Now paying bills and wages for hubby, cooking dinner and finalising things for my first virtual Core Pole Training teacher training course this Friday. 😊

A success story ….
And a good reminder for me.. Listen to your teacher 😂
Rushed into a Jade on my non-preferred side and it was painful and pretty sad ..
Then had this great idea to think about all the cues and tips I give me students 🙄
Surprise Surprise.. it worked.
Thanks coach Joanna 😝

@lisa_d_poledancer see … I can do a s**t Jade split 😂

On the weekend I danced for the audience and it felt amazing … yesterday I danced for me and that felt awesome too!!
I am so grateful for opportunities such as Cabaret De Paris.
Never in my young dancer’s life did I dream I would be dancing in a professional show at the stunning His Majesty's Theatre, Perth at the age of 52!
And yet there I was!!

23/08/2021

Today I got to have a super fun jam and try out a few new combos with the awesomeness of @mischkapoledancer @andreajameslui @blyszak @missdani_pole @apolelin @coco_pole_dancer2
Pretty happy I managed these as I joined in late after my morning classes
Long combo inspired by @dmitchell1123

Didn’t do so well on the camera angle though. Oops

The last 2 years have flown by and yet it's hard to imagine having been anywhere else than this amazing space that we put our hearts and souls (& life savings 😛 ) into
This was the journey from October 2018 to opening our beautiful new space on August 1st 2019, all while still running both our businesses, our eldest studying for year 12 exams, running the West Australian Pole Championships and me Competing and placing in Miss Pole Dance Australia WA Heat , going to Sydney for the Miss Pole Dance Australia finals & competing in and winning the Arnolds PCS Pole Championship Series in Melbourne

I am so grateful for my legendary hubby and kids and all the wonderful teachers and students that have shared a part of the studio's journey, some who have traveled with me for almost 18 years!

Poling in Chicago in Pants!!

Thanks @polesphere for the reminder of this amazing trip to Chicago for the @mastersonlyretreat .. I was literally straight off the plane!

Repost from @polesphere …..
The perfect Deville Split 😍 @joannalittlewoodjohnson’s combo of strength, flexibility and technique is just magical ✨✨

Join me and our amazing world class team to learn this and more

Little combo I put together for my zoom private with @heather_poledance today.
Here it is on both sides… one side is definitely cleaner smoother but always pretty happy with them being close to similar.
Staying consistent and working both sides is definitely part of the recipe to stay balanced (and Pilates of course 😉)

Static spins spirals and flips ♥

So amazing to have people in the studio with me, even just for a practice jam!
One of my old fav static combos full of dynamics, flares, spirals, splits, shouldermount and superman (once upon a time my nemesis! ) and topped off with a flip…. Many of my favourites!

Nothing like something to work towards to give me a boost of confidence and motivation!
So today I put on some music and just freestyled … always going back to some of my favourites. And I felt good!!

Excited to perform for our students in the teacher showcases next week and then a biggie coming up in August! Woohoo!

Bring on my pole mojo and some satisfying training

WAPC Guest Show - My IPC Winning routine

I miss being on stage!!! And I miss being able to run the West Australian Pole Championshipsthis year!!! It's been a highlight of the Perth Pole calendar (and mine) for the past 7 years. Last year we were lucky enough to be able to hold it at my studio and live stream it.
This was my guest performance from a few years back when we had a bumper crowd at the Astor Theatre... performing my winning International Pole Championship routine

Fingers crossed we are back to normal and able to bring the comp back to life in 2022

I also do miss how amazing I feel in myself when I’m training for and working towards a goal or a show.
Hopefully there will be something on the horizon again soon!

18/06/2021

Not my greatest / flattest #pddragontail but it made me remember the very first time I performed it on stage.. in @aerialallstars about 7 years ago!
Not only was I going from training on brass 38s to competing in 45 chrome, but @charleeshae the creator of the move was judging!

And how beautiful is my studio!!

Warmup freestyle dance on a cold winter day… coldest morning of the year for us Perthites today!
I love just moving and seeing where my body takes me …. It’s the combination of freedom but at the same time muscle control that I love when I dance like this

Yesterday we held a phenomenal party at our house for one of my amazing sons with 60 of his friends and survived!

Today we are all back at it and I managed to recreate this little beauty I found in an old video and added a devils elbow in for a little extra self torture.

DOUBLE TROUBLE
Okay, so I got my s**t together and got up the pole.
Filmed a little freestyle in the mirror then filmed the other way and tried to remember what I had done the first time without looking back at the video 😂

Glad we have heaters but still… 🥶 (well cold for us Perthites anyway!)
Hanging for the warmer weather already!

09/06/2021

Feeling tired, unfit and fatigued today.

Admittedly I wore boots but this was much harder than it should have been

Can I blame my Covid shot from the other day?
Or maybe my hormones?
It’s also been a crazy week of ups and downs although I feel so awful and send love for those in Melbourne who still can’t open their studios. I hope that can be made right soon!

Bellissima!
Oh I do love dancing on a static pole! Creating spins and spirals using my body and hand positions, momentum and torque
“Force multiplied by the distance from the pole measures the torque in a spin” @corepoletraining

How long can you hold a pencil spin?
Here’s 1 minute ... physically I was fine to keep going but I get dizzy if I hold it for a long time!
I call this the #sylviachallenge

Waiting for my amazing (over 60) student Sylvia to film hers and see how long she can hold it for as she is definitely a master of pencil spins at our studio!

01/06/2021

Working on a tricky little static combo for my advanced class with the 2nd video me working out the other side! It’s not so pretty on that side but I got there!

As much as possible I try to at least work out tricks and combinations on both sides ... for a number of reasons.
✨ The obvious, balancing the body
✨Doing my non dominant side, where moves are not as natural, makes me really have to think about what I need to do (grip points, push and pull, movement direction, etc) which means I am more prepared to teach it.
✨ Which brings me to Brain plasticity! Pole is such great exercise for our brains in so many ways (hint: I’ll be covering this a little in my @corepoletraining course!)

Do you train both sides?

Flashback to about a year ago when I iso pole trained my boys.
I love that they asked me to do this with them while they couldn’t go to gymnastics.

Oh, and I’m on #tiktok now too!
