pop it and lock it!

that's what i was learning recently at a private pole dancing event. strippers deserve some credit ladies, okay, they may not be saving for college but they work hard! the quiet girls did the best job and i'm so not a quiet chick, so i struggled (the fact i have hyper-mobile joint syndrome & I was sick didn't help haha)! take a look at how much fun we had!

everyone started out with heels on and took them off as soon the class started
we had tons of booze, champagne, mike's lemonade, etc (being tipsy and learning the moves was not easy, lol)
i was the only one to wear heels the whole time!
ewww, sweaty pits, lol
towards the end C put on her heels (it's actually easier with heels on)
also, the instructor was so awesome, she was holding herself up there for a good minute, we had user issues when someone tried to use my camera, we were so scared she'd fall on us (hence the awkward stance) LOL!

and for all the haters that have come across a beauty blogger i love (she knows who she is b/c she is sad i'm switching from a blackberry to the htc evo! no more bbm'ing for us, *sad*)

Ohhh are those aldo shoes? :D I really wanted to buy those but in the end didn't because I wasn't sure about the sizing.

Looks like u guys had a blast :)

Nikosmommy said...

This class looks like soo much fun! I of course would suck at it, but it would be great for a good night out with the girls!

Dhalia said...

WOW...I remember when i took some classes for fun....they were so fun and dont those trainers all have killer bodies...they are cut. Takes alot of arm power to get you up and down those poles.


PetiteAsianGirl said...

That instructor is not going to fall down on you guys...look at her guns...holy smokes!

This looks like so much fun! I've seen a few Groupons on pole dancing classes but I can't dance much less swivel sexily around a pole in heels. You look fab! Where will you be practicing the new moves learnt?

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

Gigi - Yes, they are Aldo Stalcups :) I love them after the wearing in period has passed! I have wide feet and I normally wear a size 6 and 36 was perfect for me!

Ofra Cosmetics - Thanks!

Nikosmommy - none of us were great at it, but it's tons of fun! hope to hear about you going!

Dhalia - Yes, I know, they are definitely CUT! This trainer is an actual Personal Trainer, wished she was close to me to train me...

PetiteAsianGirl - I practice in my closet! I kid I kid, haha. Girl, it was not an easy class, I struggled! I should have known better than to think she would fall! She is so built! We got out group session off of Groupon I think!

Expensive Pink - There are so many around DC...the one we went to had opened two weeks before our class, Pretty Lady Pole Fit, highly recommended! I really should get a pole in my house! Great idea...I'll have to wait for a house and I'll get it professionally installedm sadly they're not cheap! $2,500 a piece!

xoxo Elizabeth - we would be mujer! you really should go, i would have never gone unless it was for charity and now i want to go back for the lap dance class, LOL. Girl, I wasn't in any pain until 3 days after, luckily it only lasted a day or two :D Let me know if you decide to go to a class!!

Nat - I know :( it was so much fun, i hope you get to go to one in NY!

Miss xCarmenx - find a class!! it's too much fun, it's a great workout! you have a pole? so jealous!

Ryan Kay - Thanks! You really should give it a try!

Kloset Freek - Need to check out that video STAT!! I haven't switched to the EVO yet, I think I am tonight...I'll let you know!

Miss*Kimmy - I highly recommend you take a class, it's too much fun! Thank you :D

Jen - I think it's a class that should be taken at least once a year, it's too much fun, i think i'll be setting up another one soon! sadly she's booked for months!

martienn - awww, thank you! i will!!

EightSeventeen Jewelry - I hope you're feeling better chica!!!!!!
