‘Bringing Sexy Back’ 2016 is now in full swing at the Irish Pole Dance Academy and in the online pole dance world! In case you missed by blog about ‘Bringing Sexy Back’ 2016 and how to get involved, click here and you can check it out!
Last Saturday evening we held a showcase here at IPDA HQ in honour of ‘Bringing Sexy Back’, with performances from our students, instructors and special guests! Watch this space for photos and videos from the night, coming soon! 😉
In the meantime, here’s a little pole dance tutorial for you about one of my favourite “classique” pole dance tricks, the Mermaid (or a body-roll in the air). This is a trick that never gets old and is one of those show-stopping mind-blowing tricks when performed from up high on the pole. It is a good old fashioned sexy pole dance trick.
I remember the first time I saw Alethea Austin performing this move and I thought I would never be able to do it! Good news, it’s not as difficult as it looks. And I’ve got some handy tips to help you make sure you have the correct technique!
To do this move you will need to be fully able to do a Split Grip Hold, click here to check out a tutorial that I made about this move to ensure your technique is flawless!
