Halloween Pole Playlist

Find this play list right here on:

Selecting pole tracks is an art form …

The Halloween pole dance playlist is by far the absolute pièce de résistance of our virtual jukebox.

It was the first playlist I made, and spans over ten years worth of clever additions.  That’s TEN WHOLE YEARS of me eyeballing every Facebook shout out for recommendations, ten years of internet searches and playlist sharing with some of the top pole stars in the industry from around the world.

As a result, VOILA…. I GIVE YOU the Candy & Chrome Halloween Pole Dance Playlist!

Enjoy!

September Pole Playlist

Find this playlist right here on:

You can’t just throw in any old tune.  Oh no no no.

So our pole dance playlists are carefully and painstakingly hand picked from the universe, just for you.

This month’s playlist is a combination mostly of pretty, airy and dreamy from the likes of Koven, Odesza, and Zed’s dead. Moving through with some feminine badassery from Ruelle, T-Swift and Beyonce, with a peppering of ethnic beats from Asadi.

But of course, kickass gravel rock carries us through to the end – making sure we use every last once of energy, courtesy of Chevelle, Dorothy and CleoPatrick.

Let’s Get Some!

August Pole Playlist

You can’t just throw in any old tune.  Oh no no no.

So our pole dance playlists are carefully and painstakingly hand picked from the universe, just for you.

This month’s playlist includes some remixy goodness from Bassnectar, High Society and Whissell.  Along with  dreamy drum n bass thanks to Drumsound & Baseline Smith, The Glitch Mob and Black Tiger Sex Machine.

Followed with seductive, sultry tracks from The Alpines, Taska Black, Ruelle and Adventure Club.  Plus a few feel good tracks from one of my faves – Illenium.

But the track that I am most proud to add is the cultural fusion of Punjabi Death Metal from Bloodywood – ‘AriAriAri’ …… it’ll confuse the hell out of you but it’s absolutely amazing and you have to hear it for yourself!

Enjoy!

I Am New – What Do I Do?

We get it.   You’re new, and you haven’t got a clue.

You don’t know what to wear, what to bring, where to park, how to act, or what to say – and that’s O.K.

The good new is:  All you’ve really got to do is turn up and get stuck in.  Honestly that’s it.  But just in case you have those ‘New Girl Niggles’ – here’s a very brief little list of the top things we get asked about by total newbs all the time, and our responses.

Moisturising … On the day of pole!

How very dare you!

You know the rules – No moisturising on the day of pole!  Or can we …. ?

For hundreds of years (ok maybe not hundreds, but as far back as I can remember) the cardinal sin of all things pole is moisturising your skin on the day of pole.

Moisturising body products like creams, oils, lotions, fake tan etc … leaves your skin coated in a film of producty goop, which makes YOU kinda slimy, meaning no grip, which transfers to the pole, meaning continuous cleaning of the damn pole instead of learning any actual pole, and it STILL causes a potential slippery death trap for the person after you!

So generally, moisturising on the day of pole is BANNED.

But of course, dry de-hydrated skin doesn’t grip well either.  Sigh. Continue reading “Moisturising … On the day of pole!”

What’s in your Pole Gym Kit?

Once you get past Beginner level in pole dance, and things are starting to become a bit more serious, it’s well worth picking yourself up a ‘Pole Gym Bag’, to be kept in the car at all times, ready for pole class!

It is a known fact that a woman do carry an evening bag at dinner time

– Bob the Drag Queen

Leggings are out and cute little outfits are in, the smaller the better!  By now, hopefully you’ll be using your health journal and carrying it everywhere with you, and then there’s the pole grip you bought the other week to cart around too, plus your phone for the all important pole selfies, water infuser, hand towel, stripper heels etc…

If your going to make a commitment then it’s time to kit you out like you mean business!

So… Here’s what’s in our Pole Gym Kit – What’s in yours?

HOW TO: Treat a Muscle Injury

Although most of the time this happens outside of class, and at pole we have lots of great practices and injury prevention techniques in place, every once in a while someone may experience an ouchie.

Even if we can deadlift and suspend our entire body sideways, aerially via pole – shockingly we are not super human after all, and injuries happen to the best of us.

Muscle soreness is pretty standard and honestly, if you don’t feel beasted after a good pole session then did you even work out?
But torn muscles is more serious and painful, and needs to be treated with care. Continue reading “HOW TO: Treat a Muscle Injury”

June & July Pole Playlist

Find this playlist on

As we wind down our classes for the Summer break, what suits us best is lazy hazy feel good sounds, as delivered by Clozee and Dreamers Delight.

This playlist is a bit smaller than the others as we simply don’t spend as much time in the classroom in the months of June & July.
