Lots of Pole Things and Theories

13 Jul

Some evenings you start pole dancing with no hope. Beacause you’re tired from yesterday lessons, ’cause you try to figure out on which corner of your skin next bruise will come out tomorrow, ’cause you think there are too many tricks left you’re not able to do yet.
Still yesterday evening was a pole-successfull one. My friend Dani from Shanghai asked me “ehy Ary can you shoot a corkscrew tutorial for me?” And that’s what I did. I started video shooting, I started laughing adn expressing my Pole Dance corkscrew theory: baseball grip, hips to the right, hips to the left, outside leg, inside arm.. If you are a poledancer you know what I mean.

I left webcam on and forgot about it. I went thorugh tricks and moves I hadn’t planned: inverted tigh hold, aerial chopper, aerial scorpio, scorpio to jamilla, a kind of “biked” pole sit, advanced plank bracket grip which turned into a c.a.r.-similar something. And, of course, corkscreweees until I was exhausted. Some of them I already know how to perform well some of them I just practiced, with impressive outcome.

I Love Pole Dance.

Pole dance at lunch break

27 Jun

A real pole dancer can’t wait to jump on a pole. We struggle with our limits and we finally manage to do the fantastic things we do and we are so proud of it that we need to demonstrate the world.

This is what happens every time I’m around, far from my tranining room, down in a street and see a pole. That’s what happens every time I spot a free pole on the bus just before people get on.

Actually it also happens on a give-way sign pole too. You’re walking and it’s there, right in front of you; it’s becoming nearer as you walk down the street. You’re finally there, feeling your hands to see if they’re dry enough to grip and there you go. Invert.

I can’t really help that.

Maybe,  I just don’t want to fight.

I’m a pole addicteeeeeeeeeed.

Pole dance satisfactions

15 Jun

Pole dance satisfactions.

Satisfaction for more than 2600 visits to my Italian Pole Dance Blog in less than two months since I first started it.

Satisfaction for my first interview by Corriere del Veneto as the first Pole Dance teacher in Veneto (Italy).

Satisfaction for the time spent smiling and having fun with my girls I have been teaching to for only four lessons but it seems to me like I know them all since I was born.

Satisfaction for my girls telling me they’re are so happy with my pole dance lessons and that I’m so good at it.

Satisfaction for teaching others pole dance after only 1o months self-teaching.

Satisfaction for people seeing me dance for the first time and telling me” when you dance you are so damn hypnotic“.

Satisfaction for inverting on a street pole or on a bus pole before people getting on.

Satisfaction for a 3,5 m high cross knee release on a 45 mm pole I’ve never danced on or never seen before.

Satisfaction for beeing called to take part in a sociological research on pole dance.

Satisfaction for first pole dance lesson reservation by a girl coming to Italy from United States.

Satisfaction is this and all is coming next.

Pole dance is filling my life with joy and satisfaction.
I’m being recognized as a professional pole dancer and pole dance teacher.

Thank you for following me on my blogs!!

Pole dance & write with your heels

1 Jun

Believe it or not pole dancing requires study.

When you are ready to start be sure you have paper, pen and then your favourite pair of heels.

This evening it’s rest day and I’m here trying to order my thoughts and my notes as well.

Yes, my pole dance notes.

Pole dance is understanding movements, identifying points of contact btw skin and pole, isolating engaged muscles and learn how to control them all. Pole dance is reasoning, logic, control.

On my table plenty of papers where I took notes after my international workshop with Miss Austin. A kind of uncategorized wishlist, moves to learn, moves to try; moves I’ll categorize and teach  myself and then  my girls. 

A reasoned moves-spin-tricks list sounding like  a coreography, that, I know,  I’m not going to follow.

Study is good but improvisation is better.

So, believe me, learn first and then dance.

Feel the music and let yourself go. You’re ready to pole.
