Miss Pole Dance Australia 2019

November 12, 2018

MISS POLE DANCE AUSTRALIA LeslieLiuphotoThe Pole Dancing event that shouldn’t be missed by any serious Pole Dancer. I love going to Miss Pole Dance Australia! I have been almost every year since it started running & often try to make it an event for all the ladies at our studio to attend, however, I have also gone on my own. It doesn’t matter who you go with or how you do it, you will never be disappointed by the show that comes from all the artists that perform on the Enmore Stage.

This year we trekked from Newcastle (or my case Maitland) to Sydney & back in the one trip. Which makes for an epic trip, 2 & a bit hours of driving each way & sitting through an epic 23 sparkling, prop-filled performances, performers dancing, spinning & flipping they’re all, in order to take home, the crown & title Miss Pole Dance Australia. The amount of skill these ladies have is unreal, topped with the time, energy & training to make these performances, the results are just spectacular.

If you haven’t had a chance to take a look, be sure to grab a copy from the Bobbi’s Pole Studio website when it comes available, it won’t be the same as being there, but you will get to see all the shows.

With so many new names on the list this year, some I had heard of, but not seen perform, some I never of heard of, I was excited to see what these ladies would get up to, but for some of my old favourites like Joanna because the few times I saw her perform, you can feel the energy that she is channelling & she didn’t disappoint with an energy-filled routine that had you bopping along with every crazy pole move. The women beside me, whom I didn’t know, was like wow, that was awesome, after her performance.

I think my favourite performance of the night was Natty’s performance which was simple setup in comparison to many of the other performers, but I loved it, was a simple routine without a theme or obvious story. Natty come out and danced with her incredible dancers who supported her performance in such an understated way that, highlighted Natty’s Pole Work & added value to her floor work, it had a flow that you couldn’t help admiring. It was one of the few performances of the night that used backup dancers that did add to her performance. Some of the dancers I feel like they think because they allow human props, they feel they must & it doesn’t always work so well.

I also loved Miss Sang, a newcomer to the Enmore stage again because of her use of dancers throughout her routine, it was also a style we haven’t seen on the Enmore stage, which was refreshing, which am sure scored just high with the Judges.

You can see I have a love of group routines, there is something truly amazing & unique to watching groups of dancers come together on the stage & bring the music to life with a dance that is so very satisfying to watch.

Top 7 Reasons for making it to Pole Club Classes

November 7, 2018

Yes, 6.30am classes aren’t for everyone, but we have 7 reasons why you should give it a go.

1. It’s Cooler, meaning less slippery.

Yes, what better way to beat the summer heat, than by getting up early, when it is much cooler, outside but also in the studio, the poles also haven’t been used overnight, giving them a chance to cool down. Making 6.30am Pole Club Classes perfect for those who struggle with the summer heat & sticking to the pole.

2. Will help keep you consistent

Particularly if your good at talking yourself out of coming to class, doing it first thing in the morning, means getting in an getting it done, before getting on with the day, whereas doing it later in the day means you have a full days’ worth of stuff banking up that you might feel you must achieve, or do first, therefore, your Pole Classes start getting pushed to another day, or not at all.

3. Improve your physical & mental energy

Being activity is a great way to kick start the day, by creating energy that will keep you going all day long. Making you feel alive & ready to take on whatever your day has installed for you. By improving your focus & mental abilities for the entire day.

4. Get better sleep

Yeah getting up early to do Pole Club is tough but will give your body a healthy sense of fatigue at the end of each day, which will be allowing you to enjoy better, longer, deeper sleep of a night. Making you well rested, for doing it all over again the following day.

It doesn’t take rocket science to work out that if you can practice self-discipline by getting up early & coming to a Pole Club class, then it will get easier to practice self-discipline in other aspects of your life, such eating better. The great thing about self-discipline it gets easier the more you do it, so the sooner you start doing Pole Club the easier it will become.

6. Achieve goals faster

Something about giving up asleep in, makes us feel like we have made a sacrifice. That sacrifice will, whether we know it or not, makes us subconsciously work harder, so be it lose weight, get fitter, get more flexible achieve that crazy ass move, where you are hanging on by just your knees, you will push harder in Pole Club Classes.

7. Plus it’s fun

Pole Club classes are a standard outline, we focus on obscure moves that often aren’t part of any teaching outline, for loads of reasons, but we pick 4 crazy moves each week to focus our attention one, Monday we learn the Moves, Wednesday we work out if we can whirl them & Fridays we try to find some flow with them. Then its 4 new moves the following week & the best is you can do all 3 classes per week for just $25/week.
