02-15-12 Pole Practice: Straight Edge to Shoulder Mount
I have a gnarly pole burn on my left shoulder to show how much I practiced this move, but I’m glad I made some progress!
Ever since I saw Bendy Kate do an advanced version of this move, I definitely wanted to try this on my own. Even though I knew it was going to be scary as frick. I found a great tutorial in the Pole Dance Dictionary and decided that I will watch and learn. Definitely with a crash pad though.
I’m so heavy and not strong enough to handle the pain of when I drop to a shoulder mount, so I either gotta get some mega muscle or drop ten pounds. But I’m so glad on how it looks so far! XD
Pole Inspire: TG Somersault (Roundabout) Spin
This is an amazing spin that I have never seen before. Definitely want to try this out some time. And I think this is a great visual tutorial. But first I might need to learn how Spiralyne does a roundabout spin first!
Ack! Always so excited to try out new moves!!! XD
Pole Inspire: SG Pencil to Shoulder Mount Drop
I just watched a clip of “Bendy” Kate Czepulkowski. I wanted to link the whole performance because she’s just amazing. At around 3:40 is where the trick I’d like to discuss starts. I’m breathless! It’s such a crazy drop and kinda makes me want to work on my pencil now. I’m just glad that there’s this endless amount of inspirational dancers and performers out there! So much I want to do and I need to get moving!
Pole Inspire: Twisted Grip Lift
When I started pole dancing, I actually got my twisted grip pretty early. I’m not sure how long it took people to get theirs, but I actually got a lot of helpful advice when I did a private with Jenyne Butterfly.
However, progressing from there has really been greatly disappointing and discouraging for me. I’ve been looking up videos on how it can be done, and I think by far, this is the most useful one. I think curling into a ball and working on suspending my toes in the air is good, but it’s that transition where my hips need to curl so I can curl into a ball that’s hard.
Sometimes I feel like if I keep watching other people do it, it’ll rub off on me and I’ll get it, but I forget I need to actually practice myself. That’s why I need to get back on the pole soon!

01-09-12 Pole Practice: Ayesha Progress
I just figured out the ayesha and finally got some decent footage on my progress. I’ve been working on the splay and trying to keep my legs perpendicular to the pole versus parallel in a V-shape. The straight edge is pretty scary, but I definitely want to practice on that more and eventually lean back into an ayesha that mainly relies on the push and pull effect of the elbow grip and my lower arm.
I discovered that I was also able to use an old futon that I kept lying around as my crash pad, which made me a lot more comfortable working on my ayeshas. Plus, it now saves me at least $200 I was expecting to spend for future practice on some tricks.
So I attempted to work on the tricks such as the Amber Marion and the splits elbow grip shoulder dismount, and I realize that I still have a long way’s to go. Sometimes people are very stubborn and they keep trying and trying until they hurt themselves or until they finally get it, but I think I decided to play it safe and take it easy. I’ve been debating about whether or not I should get cracking on working on my inverts on the other side, but all the practice inverting on my opposite side has left some crazy bruises on my right calf. I hope that someday I’ll be able to get these tricks though. But for now…practice, practice, practice!
I found a website called Studio Jellyfish and their shoes are sooooo hot and original. I wouldn’t mind walking around in a pair of heels worth about the same amount as my monthly rent as long as they had pandas on it!
I was thinking about hand painting some shoes, but I always think about the little things…like how long would the paint last on the shoe? How would I keep the art from cracking when I bend the shoe this way or that? Should I use a sealant? Is painting a shoe this way made for daily or outdoor use? Last week, I had spent hours looking up tutorials on the best (and budget-friendly) way of doing so, but alas, it was not enough to give me the confidence to decorate my shoes that way.
I have a craft night that I’ll be attending with some girlfriends and since my brainstorming wasn’t doing too well when it came to painting shoes, I decided to go the bejeweling route (also, after saying “bejewel”, I can’t stop thinking about that addictive puzzle game). Decoupaging was going to be my second choice, but then I would actually have to go looking for magazines and cutting up pictures would be a little too time-consuming for me.
Also, because I was a lazy ass and didn’t want to cough up money for a plain pair of shoes that I might possibly destroy, I’ve decided that I’ll be redecorating my black Pleaser’s that I rarely wear. That way, if I eff up, at least I won’t feel like I threw away the money I spent yesterday (it’ll be the money that I threw away three years ago!). Anyways, I made a Michael’s run and bought like a bunch of flatback rhinestones, flower embellishments (that were luckily on sale), ribbons, and glues. Total spent for supplies was about $46. I hope I bought enough rhinestones, but we’ll see…
