May22 - Mypolestars

Let me try to remember how I actually got myself into pole dancing. Oh yeah, I think it was in 2008 when I went for a Nike event, Viva vertical was having a session (Nike This is Love). Definitely felt the friction & the hurt on the legs & arms.

Then in April this year, I went for a ladies day out where Viva Vertical was there as well (Tongue in Chic - Shower Fresh with Rexona).

And that totally got me hooked. I was introduced by Ban Eu (ex-collegemate) about the Outcast Dance Studio.I started my first pole class in May, and after a month later (4 classes) I feel more confident. No upside-down stunts yet. My greatest achievement is my upper body strength is stronger. I'm able to carry my body only with my arms. Hey, i couldn't even get up an inch at the start.

Anyway, I got to know about Viva vertical's MyPoleStars pole dancing competition thru an aquintance. So I decided to check it out. RM20 per entry (w/o drink) was pretty steep at The Opera, Sunway.
