    Default Pole dance

    Not the run of the mill pole dancer but an artist.

    That was absolutely stunning to watch! I will admit an anti-pole dance bias -- but she didn't come across as "sexy" or "slutty," she was just an incredible athlete and artist who is AMAZINGLY strong and AMAZINGLY flexible! For all those moments when we pray that the GP will have a "conversion moment" and see our dance for the athletic art that it is . . . I just had my pole dance conversion moment!

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    Now to post another totally different dance - Saw this on Bhuz and some of you may have seen it, but for the non Bhuz members this is amazingly beautiful. It totally mesmerised me. I love her graceful hands and arms. Wish mine were 1/2 as graceful I've saved this to my youtube favs, I love it so much.

    It's amazing how strong the dancer in the first clip is! If pole dancing was done fully clothed it's rather like gymnastics and can be very graceful.
    I'd prefer if the artist here would have had some more clothes on so she wouldn't portray the stereotyped dancer in lingerie. Although hers is different of course.
    I think you need bare legs though to get a good grip and not slip off. I should ask my friend who takes pole dance classes.

    You need a bare waist, bare legs and bare arms to grip the pole properly. What pole dancers wear is pretty much what they need to to be able to do what they do, but I agree that if they wore more sporty or stagey costumes instead of defaulting to lingere that they'd have a lot more respect in the wider community.

    I will agree with her being an incredible athlete. I still found the artistic level lacking though. It was great to watch and very entertaining but most of the performance was about the athleticism, it didn't blend. The little dance at the beginning to create atmosphere didn't blend either. The day someone manages to blend the athleticism with the artistic the same way the performers who do the aerial silk do I will agree with you. She's the closest I've seen but I don't think it's there yet.

    Exactly. I used to pole dance but I didnt wear lingerie I wore what I needed to shorts and a spagetti strap top. (one day I hope to get my belly dance practices up.)
