This is where my inner geek and my passion for pole meet and run naked through the streets together – I call this segment THINGS UNTAUGHT.
These pieces are an expression of what I find to be key elements in pole.
I believe that as artists, creators, and dancers we are also actresses/actors in the sense that our parts cannot be played without feeling, authenticity, and drawing from our pot of unique personal experiences in order to produce in our craft. Individual variances and unique nuances to movements creates style and is what sets us apart from someone else’s version.
Derived from the depths and surface waves of each of us, I believe that we are ALL dancers and that we all have a unique story to tell.
These pieces are an expression of what I find to be key elements in pole dancing and were created to help muse you in the discovery and development of your own personal dance style.
One can not teach you how to dance. They can teach you to perform a movement, but the dance is derived from your experiences, your authenticity, your life-force, conjured and delivered to the dance floor.
Acting isn’t ‘putting on a mask’ – acting is being – acting is moving. As dancers we are actors and so we must BE. We have to FEEL and conjure every layer to apply on top of the teachings we’ve dedicated our time to learning, and as creators, we have to do so authentically and without fear.
My goal is to touch upon, explore, and inspire variations of these specific key elements of pole dance and to open doors of understanding while leaving personal style intact. Created to help muse you in the discovery and development of your own personal dance style and to help guide you deeper into your movement practice.
I hope you find them moving and inspiring!
