I’m heading into that relentlessly busy (but fun) time of year. There hasn’t been much time for dancing let alone editing but I snuck in a quick morning pole silk flow (loosely edited) which felt realllly good.
I’ve had several people ask me how I warm up for pole silks and really any warmup is okay but I personally prefer to warm up with/on the apparatus I’m using as it properly preps my joints for the load I’m about to place on them, warms up the apparatus, etc. For this video, I left my ‘warmup’ phase in. The first 3ish minutes includes movements I use to prep before fully engaging on my silks. Lots of stretchy, pulling/pushing, form conscious, weight transferring movements. If you’re here for the fast-flying pole silk action fast forward to 3:00. 👍
Also, I always get asked “how do you rig that up there” so I included a quick shot of my rigging at the end. My particular set is no longer sold but if you’re interested in the elements of pole silk rigging you can check out my article “Getting Started With Pole Silks” for a starting base and links to the necessary equipment.
Oh, and Merlin… he got unknowingly whapped in the face a few times with my silks but I can assure you no frenchies were hurt in the making of this video. 😂 Poor Merlin – he’s got it ruff. 💕
Happy dancing and flying beauties! 🌸💃
