A Look Back: From Las Vegas to Croatia
Goodbye summer… I have no idea where it went! I loved creating awesome collections for fantastic pole dancers. My business is growing and this September was probably one of the busiest in my life and I’m still trying to put everything that was amazing about it into words. Visiting Las Vegas and its awesome annual Pole Expos was breath taking – not only did I get the opportunity to become a sponsor for the Croatia Pole Camp, but also for the USPDF Pro Qualifierin New York,which is a dream come true for me in so many ways.
You can’t have enough: It’s Vegas Baby!
As an all-round pole enthusiast, I definitely couldn’t miss one of the biggest events of the year in the pole industry, which was held at the Las Vegas Hard Rock hotel – Pole Expo 2016. It was an amazing trip for many reasons. I really enjoyed the stunning performances, a variety of workshops and seminars, and meeting other fabulous suppliers and manufacturers, as well as getting to hang out with all my awesome pole friends. Being among the greatest pole stars in the world – like Marion Crampe, Amy Hazel, Sergia Louise Anderson, Natasha Wang, Pink Puma, and Michelle Shimmy – was really an honour.
It was an experience I feel truly blessed to have. I was able to catch up with so many pole friends and stars that I’ve met over the last few years. The highlight of the trip however, was the opportunity to present my Poledancerka collection. The appreciation I received for my Poledancerka brand was incredible and all of my knee pads were soon gone. Yeeeey! I just couldn’t be more thrilled with the turnout. It was also super exciting and so rewarding seeing how Amy Hazel wowed the audience with her amazing routine – and wearing Poledancerka knee pads. She is so impressively strong and flexible.
I had a fabulous time at the Pole Expo. It was everything I dreamed it would be and so much more. There is nothing like being around hundreds of pole dancers from all around the world who understand your passion and love for pole.Can we ever get enough? Nope. Plus, Vegas can be pretty fun on its own.
Perfect match: Sun, Sea and . . . Pole!
Flying back to Europe, the experience continued with another visit to a beautiful event – imagine an unforgettable beach retreat that includes outstanding pole classes and plenty of fun in sunny and warm Croatia. From September 22nd through to the 25th, the sunny city of Pula buzzed with pole stars ready to share their passion for pole. The Croatia Pole Camp, the biggest pole camp in Europe that is organised by Nikolina Jurisič and her team, offered workshops on everything from strength and flexibility to sexy floor work. Among my favourites was Marion Crampe’s Feel the Floor, Nadia Sharif’s Stripper Flow and Spinning on Static. On Saturday night, Pole Camp hosted the competition Pole Theatre Croatia. The entire event was outstanding and it was wonderful to see such talented dancers perform one after the other.
Sometimes, as a dancer, you get stuck in a rut and workshops are a great opportunity to try something new and challenging. So I experienced a mind-blowing long weekend,meeting interesting people and getting more inspired for my Poledancerka brand, as well as for my personal pole journey. It was exciting seeing plenty of girls wearing my leggings and rocking it with my Poledancerka knee-pads. The weather was fabulous and the sea was still warm enough for swimming. A total delight!
Pole events are always fun to attend and I can’t wait for the next one.
Stay tuned 😉
