I love new pole products. it’s like a new treasure found and when they are tailored specifically for us it’s even better! Our very own Pole-licious hottie Shannon created Vertical Swag. Vertical Swag specializes in products specifically for pole dancers. Their biggest seller are the wrist wraps. Shannon makes these by hand! They are made with quality fabrics and super cute patterns! She will even make you custom wraps! Shannon’s company has been featured by Leen Isabel the creator of Pole Dancing Adventures.
These wraps are amazing for girls like me that have weak wrists from slaving over a keyboard for years. They let you repeatedly practice tricks that would normally kill your wrists after a few attempts. They also help stabilize you until you get comfortable in your new inverted pose of the week 🙂 I have used them to strengthen my basic “push pull” hold, they helped me with my butterfly and v float, you name it, the list goes on.
Check out Shannon’s website for more detailed info. You can also use these wraps for your daily gym visit for weight lifting. And let’s face it, who doesn’t want sexy zebra stripes…skulls…or flowers adorning their wrists? ;P Get your wraps today! They are a very reasonable price!
corset There is no denying that a pair of heels make your legs look miles long, but before you go twirling around the pole in a pair there are a few things to keep in mind: If you have never worn heels I advise against starting with a pair over 5 inches, or stilettos! if … Continue reading
The invert…. Gasp! Upside down!!! my most dreaded trick when I moved to Level 2. This is the foundation of every aerial pole trick you learn and it’s impoetant not to just learn it but to MASTER it. I learned from day 1 at Pole-licious to master your trick before moving on to the next … Continue reading
Better Safe Than Sexy… It’s funny that I chose this topic to write about. I overpracticed shoulder mounting and twisted ballerina in the advanced workshop with Madeline. My own fault, I knew I was doing too much on that shoulder. But me being the overachiever I am told my aching shoulder to shut it, and … Continue reading
The Nemesis Tricks….We all have at least 1 (or 5 or 6) nemesis tricks. These are those elusive tricks that I see everyone else get but me, like the squirrel. I lusted after the squirrel every week, every class, 3 teachers!! Finally I got a tweak from another instructor. It was the smallest little tip and I magically understood how the trick worked. (one of these days I will make it as pretty as Lauren and Laura’s 🙂 ) My point is, sometimes that’s all it takes, a little tiny tip from a different point of view.
My new nemesis is the leg switch, I slide every damned time, my inside leg hook is ugly as sin and I’m on a mission to pretty it up a little. 🙂
SO, I wish i could video myself and give you tips and tricks, but alas, I am not at that level in my pole journey, so i decided to reblog to you, video tips from Aerial Amy’s blog. Amy is great, her tips are awesome! Below is a link to the blog page and the video as well. Bring your nemesis tricks to class! ❤
Have a great day hotties!!!

Pole dancing is beautiful and graceful and I love it but it really beats you up..literally! I know I’ve had sideways stares from family members with raised eyebrows when I wear shorts. I wear my bruises like a badge of honor. A bruise means you are doing something right, they are milestones in our journey. I … Continue reading
