RECAP – 3rd Annual Comic Con Pole Jam with Fun Pole Fitness and Pole Dancing Adventures

fun-pole-fitness-2016-comic-con-2
We just had another incredible event at the 3rd Annual Comic Con Pole Jam that I co-hosted with amazing studio owner, Marie Davidson and instructor extraordinaire, Nadine Young. Thank you to these awesome ladies from Fun Pole Fitness for hosting this event with me again this year. I’m always looking forward to it!

This year our attendees BROUGHT IT with their cosplay! I loved spending my night swinging, laughing and having a great time with heroes and villains alike. -_^ Together, we raised $400 for the Hillcrest Youth Center. It is the only drop-in and recreational center in San Diego County dedicated to the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and HIV+ (LGBTQ+) youth.

HYC is committed to providing a safe, affirming space for LGBTQ+ youth to be proud of who they are and the freedom to discover who they might become. We host approximately 300 visits from youth each month. They are 80% youth of color — Latino, African-American, Asian and Pacific Islanders, Native American — and 20% Anglo-American. They are youth from all over the county, representing almost every zip code. Some come from our most affluent homes, some are homeless. More than 70% are low-income and underserved.

In light of what recently occurred during the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting, we wanted to help our LGBTQ community. Please remember it’s never too late to give back to communities in need — look into your local youth center or consider donating to Hillcrest as well!

Thank you everyone for letting your inner hero/villain shine that night and for making the Annual Comic Con Pole Jam another success! I hope to see you all again next year.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! With the excuse of a holiday, I thought it was also the perfect opportunity to send a mini Easter basket to a beloved pole friend! Check it out:

I remember those gigantic Easter baskets as a kid and it was so much fun recreating the fun with some pole goods and treats. Of course, being conscious of the healthy athlete diet, I replaced candy with “That’s It” bars! These bars are amazeballs. They advertise: “All natural fruit bars made from 100% REAL FRUIT and only 2 ingredients.” Simplicity and sweetness nearly as good as the real thing. (I remember I was having a horrid night and my sugar level dropped and this pole friend gave me one. Saved me from my hypoglycemia in a second. So grateful.)

Anyway, this was my simple basket. I imagine you can also make one with a ton of other small pole related goodies. Here are a few ideas!

  • Healthy Snacks
  • Pole Grip Aids (Or how about a variety of sample packs?)
  • A pole-dance outfit/bikini
  • Skincare products. (You know, for those off days.)
  • Gift certificate to a favorite pole dance studio.

Have a wonderful holiday pole dance adventurers! <3
