Pole Dance Competitions

There are moments while watching a pole dance competition where these thoughts go through my mind. Eventually though, I’ll snap back to reality and realize that none of those hard moves I see onstage were achieved instantaneously. It just takes consistent practice. (Something I haven’t done this year. Long story.)

I admire my friends and readers who compete. I see the long hours they put into their training and admire them for it! I’m always wondering to myself if I should put in more time into becoming better at pole. Deep down, I know I should! If not to complete then to have a larger dance “vocabulary.”

As I write this, I plan to be at the California Pole Dance Championships later today. Three years ago, I watched competitive pole dancing for the first time at this event. Natasha Wang had won that year and I was mesmerized. 😀 And now, I’ll have a table for Pole Dancing Adventures and I can’t wait to see everyone perform.

And I’ll try my best to keep self-depreciating thoughts at bay!

I had a wonderful time at the competition despite the minor set-backs due to the changed time and venue. The performers were so amazing. I was definitely in awe of all the talent on-stage. Great job to everyone who had the courage to go up there and give it all they had! I’m sure my voice will be hoarse in the morning from all the cheering. 😀

Also, thank you to all the PDA readers who stopped by to say hello! I’m so happy to hear from you in person and I loved chatting with you all! Your support is always appreciated. Here’s the one photo I have of me from behind the my new banner. Thank you to my best friend and fellow poler/aeralist, Michelle Loon, for being my booth helper.
