Last night, CJ and I got an invite to watch PRISM: Expressions of Flight and Light – Polecats Manila’s 5th Anniversary show. While waiting in our seats, CJ recounted this Chris Rock show where Chris Rock was talking about being a father to a baby girl. According to CJ, Chris Rock was talking about what dad needs to do to be a responsible father, which was: “Keep your daughters off the pole!” It was pretty funny…and I’m a bit of a Chris Rock fan to be honest.
But after watching the PRISM show, now I want to get on the pole! It was such a wonderful celebration of the human body – what it is capable of, no matter the height, weight, gender or age. And it wasn’t just dancing on poles— there were hoops and chairs and silk cloths. It was nothing short of amazing seeing such control and grace mostly off the stage floor!
I have tried pole dancing as a workout regime a couple of years ago… and it is NOT easy. Just going up that pole requires some serious skills, and much more just holding on to it with just your hip and your ankle. But no pain, no gain… and now I am seriously considering going back to Club 360 to take it up again.
