Pole Life Lesson #4: Ditch The Labels

Labels are a common part of our everyday lives… We label people on their gender, sexuality, hair colour, careers, nationality, race, hobbies, music taste and more. Labels help us to compartmentalise the world around us, and we use them to understand ourselves and our place in the world. Labels aren’t inherently bad, but the problem is when we start assigning labels to ourselves or others that aren’t exactly positive, or that we attach a negative judgement to.

Pole Life Lesson #3: Focus on YOUR Strengths

Pole Life Lesson #2: You’re On Your Own Journey

When I first started pole dancing I progressed at pretty much the same rate as everyone else, lots of moves I picked up quickly, and other moves took me a little longer, nothing unusual there. Once I proceeded onto intermediate and advanced tricks I started to make exciting progress, and with good strength gains I learned how to handspring, superman, shoulder mount and so on within my first year. However, I then decided to focus on my dancing, choreography and pole flow. For 2017 my tricks have pretty much taken a back seat. Those same class mates who were level with me a year ago are now banging out an Iron-X and polishing pole combos that I am only just starting to learn. Am I jealous? Am I worried? No, not really. I may not have that crazy combo or those strength moves, but I won Dance Filthy Amateur and I’ve got kick ass floor work skills!
