This past Saturday, The Girls Room hosted their second annual St. Patrick’s Day competition, which featured beginning, intermediate and advanced level students. The competition also featured a special showcase portion where no-competitors also showed off their pole moves. There was even an impromptu surprise performance from Miss Texas Pole Star Ultimate Division Runner up AND Miss Sexy: Lindsey Dement. As always she gave us a high-energy performance with her signature style and that fiery red hair.
I was a part of the Advanced group and my routine was actually a freestyle. I literally picked my song minutes before the competition started, glanced at the list of required moves and went for it. Normally I would have done a choreographed and practiced routine for a competition, but my preparation for Miss Pole Dance Oklahoma this coming weekend has had all of my time, energy and attention. So instead of dropping out of this smaller competition, I decided to really put my FreeStyle Friday experience to the test to see what I could pull off…plus I figured I could use the performance practice to work on pointing my toes, connecting with the audience and watching my lines. My routine turned out pretty darn good for a freestyle and I was happy that I pointed my toes and didn’t get lost behind my hair. Overall it was a lot of fun to pole without pressure and I enjoyed watching all of the other students perform. Check out my performance below!
