I think it’s every girl’s dream (for that matter, every guy’s too) to have a fit body, tight abs, muscle definition, the works. Everyone wants to stay on a fitness regime, keep a focused diet, and enjoy a healthy life stye, but few actually accomplish it.
I’ve been going on and off (mostly off, unfortunately) to Poletential to get my workout on for about a year. I know dancing is the best form of exercise for me because it’s fun, and not repetitive like most workout routines are. In college I danced competitively on the ballroom dance team, and while I still got the skills to don a pair of dancing shoes and dance the night away, it’s just not rigorous enough alone as a form of exercise. I chose pole because it’s sexy and challenging, but I think the latter is also why I always somehow fall off the wagon because pole dancing is really hard!
Early this July, the owners of Poletential asked if I was available to photograph their very first AirShow. I jumped at the opportunity and I’m so glad I did. Not only did I get to photograph the amazing dancers, I met them, got to know then, and made forever friends. Some have been dancing since they were 18, others only picked it up in the last 5 years. I was completely in awe of the performers flexibility, fluidity, beauty, and strength.
Since the event, I’ve somehow rediscovered my inner diva and found the resolve to go to class more regularly, and it’s really been paying off. Those moves I used to think I’d never be able to do before are slowly starting to become part of my regular repertoire.
Oh, one last thing… AirShow is happening again! December 3rd, at Club Fox and tickets JUST went on sale. I can’t wait. It was completely sold out last time so, get your tickets soon! Also, if you are going, let me know!
Now on to the photos!!!
We kicked off the evening with the Poletential owners themselves, Christina and Pam!
Then there were the students and the instructors, showing off their skills!
Last, but of course, totally not least, were the professionals. They were absolutely amazing!!!
