I wanted to film a new move I learnt - the bird of paradise. I kept on dancing and ended up with this improvised video... . I love how raw and authentic improvised movement can be. Imperfect but more real, more true to the feelings of that exact moment... . This feels like something quite intimate to share so publicly... But I wanted to share the feeling of pure flow ❤️ .

Eek, the video of my performance from @poletheatreiceland is on YouTube! Go have a look, the link is on my bio. :) . This performance meant a lot to me. Not only was it the first pole competition I did where I had already got through a pre-selection just to be there, but the creative process was really challenging and although I enjoyed it, it also fully took over my life for a while. . My theme was the lines between madness and sanity, depression and happiness, and I felt I truly experienced all those mental states while making this... . I hope it’s interesting to watch, but at least it was a really good experience to make and perform!! I’m definitely not done with this yet, I will perform an improved version of the same piece again soon!! :) . #polecompetition #poledance #poledancer #contemporarypole #eek #performance #poleperformance #polechoreography #dancer #polersofig #dancersofinstagram #onstage #performing #polevideo #poledancevideo #mentalhealth #dancelife #polelife #creativelife #creative #artistic #movement #movementart #dancewhatyoufeel #expressyourself #expression #passion #lifeismorefunupsidedown

This happened last night... 😶 Still finding it hard to believe, but I actually finally got my Iron X!! 🎉 . Strength has never come easy to me, so I already thought at points that I might never be able to achieve moves like this. But here I am... It’s helped a lot that I’ve been much more focused on my strength training for the last half a year and done training off the pole too!! . For anyone else wanting to get stronger, I also really recommend the 12 week strength programme by @polefreaks . It’s like having a personal trainer, for a fraction of the cost and not having to leave your home!! Doing the exercises on the course has definitely developed my strength a lot faster, helping me to get to moves like this! :) . Now what should be my next “someday I hope to be able to do this” pole goal...? 😁 . #pdironx #poledancer #pole #strong #gettingstronger #yay #training #poletraining #strengthtraining #sohappy #whenhardworkfinallypaysoff #fitness #strongwomen #girlpower #polelife #poleinstructor #polersofig #polefitnessnation #advancedpole #weheartpole #polegoals #aerial #poletricks #polelove #poledancersofinstagram #polefreaks #pointyourtoes #lovepoledance #hometraining #lifeismorefunupsidedown

Feeling like only a small pebble in the vastness of the earth.... Iceland has been an amazing experience! I loved performing at @poletheatreiceland on Saturday, and got incredibly inspired by everyone else’s performances afterwards. The next couple of days I took workshops with @marioncrampe and @jordankensley at @erialpole , and learnt so much new that I can’t wait to put into practice and train more!! It was the perfect cycle of creating work and performing it, getting inspired to do more, and then getting the skills to improve and do better next time. Can’t wait to begin the cycle again now and start training for the next performance!! :) . After the few days of immersing myself in dance and training, I finally had some time to be a tourist yesterday and to see the incredible nature of this country. What a great balance to the almost selfish practice of intense training, to go out into the world and get reminded how, no matter how big whatever you do feels, it’s actually nothing on the scale of the earth. The earth doesn’t care, it just goes on doing its thing, moving its sea currents and creating mountains... It doesn’t care who won the latest pole competition, or what’s the name of the president in each country... 😁 It does care what we do to it though so let’s take good care of this beautiful planet we live on and that gives us all life ❤️ . But, doing what you love is still the best thing anyone can do to themselves. Make the most out of your time while you’re here, do what moves your heart and awakens your passion!! 🌟 For me that’s dance, and I’m so grateful for this trip, for everything I learnt at the workshops, every dancer who inspired me with their performance, and for the chance to just be here in the first place and perform! Thank you to everyone who’s been a part of this experience in one way or another! Both people I met here, and also friends and family in the rest of the world who have been supporting me remotely ❤️ #postcompetitionthoughts #postcompetition #poledancer #dancer #bridgepose #flexible #bendy #iceland #visiticeland #icelandtravel #thingvellir #touristtime #travel #traveling #traveller #lovetheplanet #lovedance #dowhatyoulove

I had the best training session last night. I had to force myself to start, I wasn’t feeling it and felt completely uninspired and like my body just wouldn’t cooperate with me. But when I pushed through that, I found endless inspiration, and felt like I could just dance and flow forever! That feeling is why I dance, it’s what makes me feel alive. There’s nothing better in the world. I would have wanted to just keep on going for forever but had to stop eventually to eat and sleep and do all those other boring human things... How lovely would it be to just be able to sustain yourself by dancing, by just moving and flowing and you’d never have to stop.... :) I have a feeling that quite a few dancers can relate to this ;) Also very happy with my new little home studio!! :) Music by Ry X #dancer #dancersofinstagram #flow #feelthemoment #inspired #improvisation #poleimprovisation #spinningpole #poledance #poledancer #poleinstructor #polelove #dancelove #lovedancing #justkeepondancing #motivation #movement #passion #aerial #polersofig #contemporarypole #polevideo #poledancersofinstagram #expressivemovement #flexible #bendy #dancewhatyoufeel #dancelife #passion #beautifulmovement #flowingmovement

Enjoying some freestyle flow after spending most of my training time for the last few months just making and rehearsing choreography :) Finally figured out how to do a nice cocoon!! ☺️ Still need a bit more leg flexibility for the perfect jade split, but happy to see I’m nearly there as well... It was looking VERY different a year ago!! Might take another year to get it just right but I’ll get there eventually... 😂 #poledancer #poledance #dance #flow #freestyle #dancer #pdjade #pdjadesplit #pdcocoon #flexible #bendy #flexibilityprogress #flexibilitygoals #weheartpole #training #happy #dowhatyoulove #passion #polelife #dancelife #polegoals #poleinstructor #bendyback #backbend #split #strong #strongwomen #girlpower #poledancelove #lifeismorefunupsidedown

Come dance with me on Thursdays at 5-6pm and 6-7pm, and Fridays at 7-8pm!! Starting my first weekly pole classes, and I’m very excited. It will be a lot of fun! 😊 I’ll be teaching at @valkyriepoledance in Walthamstow E17, and the classes will be very affordable at just £14/hour (compared to most classes in London costing around £18-£20!). First class will be half price for anyone who follows me on IG or FB :) In a month or so I’m planning to start a contemporary pole class too that’s more focused on fluid choreography and linking moves together rather than just tricks. Message me if you’d like to book a place on one of the classes, or if you want to hear more about the contemporary pole class!

Posing after my performance at PSO Germany. What an amazing experience! It was my first pole competition, and I learnt so much and felt so inspired by the other performers. Thank you for everyone who was there that day for making it such a supportive positive environment!! And thanks to @valkyriepoledance for the space to rehearse my choreography, @contourspoleuk for lending me a costume when my first costume plan fell through at the last minute, @benjaminyellowitz for giving some feedback and being my practice audience, and my amazing family who came all the way from Finland to support me!!!!! ❤️And of course to everyone who has ever taught me pole or any other type of dance, giving me the skills to be able to go and perform on my own! I didn’t win in the competition this time, but I won my own perfectionism of thinking I’d have to know how to do EVERYTHING before performing pole on stage... And that’s quite a big step for me, so I’m grateful to everyone who’s helped make that happen with positive words of encouragement and belief in me as a dancer!!!

I’ve been training for my first competition at PSO Germany. Don’t want to reveal too much of it yet, so here’s a very short clip from my routine... Can’t wait to perform it on stage soon!!! I’ve been rehearsing at the @valkyriepoledance studio, and I’m so grateful that I’ve had a chance to hire an affordable studio space with flexible opening hours! Check out the studio and their classes if you’re in London!! #psoexcited #polesportorg #pddangerousbird #dancingwithclementine #training #rehearsals #dancer #poledancer #contemporarypole #spinnypole #polestudio #poleinstructor #poledancelondon #polefitnessvideos #polelife #dancelife #lovepole #bendy #bendyback #bendymoves #flexible #poledance #dance #aerial #poletricks #polemoves #weheartpole #weheartaerial #poledancersofig #polegoals
