July 9 - 16 Bringing Sexy Back with United Pole Artists
Since United Pole Artists announced last week that they were declaring 9-16 July "Bringing Sexy back week" my Facebook feed has been flooded with the poster of Alethea Austin, along with girls (and guys) declaring to get their sexy on! AND I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!!
I'm all about the sexy side of pole dancing, and I honestly don't understand how anyone can pole dance without unleashing some kind of sexy. I don't get the whole pole fitness thing where you just do trick after trick after trick, to be honest, when watching videos like that on YouTube or even live performances like that I tend to zone out. There is really only so many times that I can watch the same tricks done over and over again by different people before it all becomes mush in my head (that also may have something to do with my very short attention span and the fact that I'm easily distracted).
1. Get YouTubing and look up people like Bobbi, Alethea Austin, Cleo, Felix etc and watch how they move (there are plenty more but these are my fav girls to watch). Also, check out my friend Lola Grace , this girl is amazing, such a bendy flex back, I love watching her get lost in the music.
2. Practice! In front of the mirror at home, check yourself out in the mirror when you're in class. Because sometimes what you think looks sexy looks like a hot mess. Video yourself as well, it'll help you find your own style and what works for you and your body.
3. Get Alethea's latest DVD's. They're awesomeballs BUY THEM HERE!
If you're not used to being "sexy" when you dance the whole thing can be a bit confronting, I can tell you know that I was pretty crap at the whole being sexy thing when I first started pole, but the more you do it the more confident you get and the easier it becomes.
So give it a try! Even if it's not for the official bringing sexy back week.
