Hi there, thank you for stopping by my pole blog. It means a lot to me that you’re here!
I’m Michelle and I’m from the little red dot on the map – Singapore. I’m not a professional pole dancer. Pole dancing is my hobby and I’m just a polie with big dreams! I’ve been pole dancing since May 2011 and the moment I took my first spin on the pole, I was hooked! I consider this the best decision I’ve ever made in my life.
I was bored with my sedentary lifestyle. I needed something to do, to have some purpose in my life. My fitness regime then consisted of casual runs around my estate, which didn’t satisfy me enough. And I absolutely hated going to the gym. I wanted to try something that’s different from what everyone else was doing.
I was always interested in dance and self-expression. The way a body is able to move and blend with the music has always fascinated me. So I chose pole dancing. Pole dancing has elements of acrobatics, gymnastics and dance. The possibilities of a routine are ENDLESS. There’s always something new to learn about pole everyday. Perfect!
So this brings me to this blog. Why would I bother coming up with a pole blog and *gasp* even create a Facebook Personal Blog page for myself?! Hold your horses, and please allow me to explain!
Having gone 2 years or so into pole dancing, I realized that I have no progress records whatsoever. I couldn’t remember what I learnt because there were just too many moves and routines! I wasn’t sure when I’d first nailed a particular bad-ass move. The only thing closest to a pole diary were my photos and videos on Facebook. Even then, those weren’t enough. I wanted to document my pole progress, my thoughts on certain topics and to share information on pole dancing to polies and non-polies alike. What better way than a pole blog?
Also, there aren’t many pole blogs around (local and international), so I thought, why not? Pole dancing is my passion and like every passionate and crazy person out there, would love to share it with the world. I can also share videos and photos from other pole dancers on Facebook too, which makes Facebook an excellent addition to have!
I want to be able to make a difference with my blog. Pole dancing is a form of art and a great fitness workout. Any bit of change in the right direction is still progress.
So…join me in my journey to becoming the next pole star! 🙂
