It is less than a week until I compete at the British Isles competition, and I actually feel very happy with my routine and I can’t wait to get to perform it.
I have put in a lot of hard work for this routine, it has taken me months to choreograph and practice, and I have played the song so many times in my car that the CD stopped working. I of course will post a article about the competition, how it went and how I did, but I just wanted to share with you a little story about my first competition.
When I started pole dancing I never imagined that I would compete, in fact it wasn’t until a few years into pole that I really realised that there were pole dancing competitions around.
I decided to enter my first competition because I wanted a challenge, and despite never being part of a competitive activity, I was excited for the new experience! I have changed a lot since my first competition; I used to dance in heels and didn’t have the upper body strength to pull out any big moves, but my passion is definitely still there.
I’m really looking forward to watching this weekends performance back and seeing the different from my first routine. Below is a link to the video of my first competition at the Pole2pole amature Sudbury heat, where I placed 2nd and in the finals came 4th. It does make me cringe a little bit to see myself perform, the way I choreographed the routine and my lack of confidence, but hopefully this weekend will be my chance to show everyone how far I have come since this competition over 2 years ago!
