more pole work tonight

Working with the pole coach again tonight. She's totally rocking my pole dancing world. Sometimes it's just little things I couldn't figure out on my own. I've seen exotic dancers do this thing where they grab the pole and do a wave motion with their pelvis and body as they slowly bend their knees and go down until they are squatting in front of the pole -- and then they arch back while still doing the body wave. I've tried and tried but once my body gets about half way down, it has been physically impossible to continue the body wave. I finally asked my coach how dancers do this move. It turns out the secret is in the feet. All I had to do was move my feet slightly in a different direction. Apparently pointed one way, your body can't support your weight while you undulate. But pointed a different way, you can undulate all the way down to the floor. Yeah...it's the little things.

Last week I learned head rolls, which is not easy. It is the most unnatural thing to have your body arched over backward and then try to whip your head around. Oh sure it looks sexy when you see a girl do it. But trust me, it's sooooooo uncomfortable. I suppose no more uncomfortable than walking in 6 inch platform heels for the first time. But I never did get very good at that. Practice...practice...practice...
