SteamPunk Circus at Chimeria Studios

So it’s been a really long time since I’ve updated my blog and all I’ve got is old news. But not to my blog.

I performed at the SteamPunk Circus event a couple weeks ago with my fellow poler Stacey. Since we are both hopelessly not with it, we had to Google steampunk images to come up with outfits. I’m pretty handy with a sewing machine so I got busy after a trip to the fabric store and then the hardware store. I came up with a faux leather harness which was a total gas to make and pretty easy to pole in.

I’ve gotten to the point with my pole dancing that I can show up to an event and freestyle, which takes a lot of stress out of performing. Before now, I wouldn’t consider performing without choreographing the entire thing. No doubt it would have looked better had I choreographed and practiced it, but I probably would not have committed to the show because that takes a lot of time.

Stacey and I are working on a duet and we debuted some of our doubles moves, which you will see in the video clip.

I still have so many ways in which I can improve but this is honestly the first video I’ve seen of myself where I haven’t cringed the whole way through. I still hate that funny thing I do with my free hand and I need to s-l-o-w down just about everything, but I’m actually kind of pleased.
