2014 Feb04 - Pole Workshop with Inter Pole Dance Fitness Assoc Instructor of the Year (2013) Aerial Pole International - Female Champion (2011) American Pole Fitness Championship - Female Champion (2010), Marlo Fisken

Marlo's video of the Glassdrops had me at Hello.

Her dance style is flow movement but it doesn't stop there.
I found her on IMDB!!!
Please tell me if that's her?

She started the workshop with a series of stretches.
I love how she squats to rest the legs...hahah...i've never done that in pole stretches before

The crane?
Only downfall is that u have to be really flexi on your back to turn ur body away

Errr..dunno whats the name..hahah
Didn't get to try this. Not confident holding myself with only my inner thigh

The all famous Bird of Paradise
I will learn you....come on flexi back!!!

To learn on her Bird of Paradise

I was freaking scared at first coz a full 360 move around the pole shoulder mount.
After that, not enough meat in between the thighs to squeeze.
Need to practice squeezing more.

2014 Oct16 - Pole Workshop with UK Professional Champion 2011/2012, Bendy Kate

The beautiful Bendy Kate held several pole workshop at The Pole Boutique and I participated in her Bendy's Pole Acrobatics workshop.

----------------------- ~o~o~o~ -----------------------

Bendy (as seen on Got to Dance 2012) is an innovative pole artist, acrobat, aerialist and handbalancer from the UK. Kate is 22 years old and trained as an acrobat from a young age.

Since beginning pole she has won several pole fitness titles including the UK Professional Champion 2011/2012, UK Amateur Champion 2010 and World Doubles Pole Runner-Up three times.
She now teaches pole fitness master classes, private pole and aerial lessons, and performs at dance shows and circus gigs.

Her aim is simple – to change negative perceptions of pole dancing…

Shocking photo!!
We're just normal pole dancers

Below are some videos taken during the workshop from my phone
