Poledivas / Suzie Q Workshop

Last weekend was another jam packed weekend full of pole, well allmost all pole.

On Friday I went to South Street in reading to watch my friend Danielle Corbishly in a performance called ‘1000 Revolutions Per Moment’. we had to follow the actors and performers around Reading, the key was to follow the music, where ever we heard music that was where we went to. It was very bizzare and made us all feel like kids again! It felt a bit like we were doing a massive treasure hunt around the town!

Saturday night was Poledivas in Bristol, much busier than the London heat. Everyone did fanastic routines, a few stood out for me, and Advance Amateur called Karry Summers, she did an excellent high energy routine to one of my favourite songs by System of a Down, I wasn’t surprised when she won the heat.

Sam Remmer from Art of Dance, Plymouth was on first for the professionals, her tricks amaze me everytime! I do not under stand how her tricks are solid as a rock, there is no movement or shaking.

Kate Johnstone from Spin City, Bristol did a fab routine to Smells Like Teen Spirit, you would never of guessed she had never done a big performance before, she had so much confidence and her routine was very fun.

On Sunday I was lucky enough to get a last minute spot on the Suzie Q Workshop in Bracknell. I was very surprised to see most of the moves didn’t require a stupid amount of flexibilty. She very much focused on strength, and reminded me a lot of Pantera. Suzie is a total nut on the spinny pole, she loves anything that makes her head spin and feel giddy. She is truely an inspiration on spinny pole!
