Songs to Pole Classy By

What is classical music if not the epitome of sensuality, passion, and understated erotica that popular music, even with all of its energy and life, cannot even begin to touch?

In the car while driving to work, I’m like any other pole dancer mentally posing and dancing to the music. However, lately I’ve grown tired of trendy pop music. In the 20 minutes it takes for me to get to work, I’ve grown exhausted from dance beats and a non-stop barrage of pop-singers telling me to party, take shots and have sex at nightclubs. Ugggh~~ It’s 8:30 a.m. Get off my radio, Ryan Seacrest.

So, I find myself switching to a classical music station. Fortunately in Los Angeles, we have the wonderful KMozart where I’m always pleasantly surprised to find music my mind can dance to. Because really, what is pole dancing if not a bit of ballet, jazz and contemporary dance?

Gotta find the right song!

Sometimes, I’ll hear a song on the radio and I want nothing more than to get to the studio and dance to it. On the other end of the spectrum, some days I’ll be hitting the “next” button until my entire list cycles back to the beginning. Those practice nights are so frustrating. Do you ever get bored of your music?
