One of the most amazing things just happened--and it's actually several happenings. 1- I have the honor of being the account manager for the PDBloggers #PoleMovement video challenge--What?! Uh, huh. I get to work with these AMAZING independent music artists that are getting their songs out there. We came up with the idea based on the frustration of having YouTube remove songs used without a license and the acknowledgment that pole dancers can really understand that need to protect our creative work from plagiarism (remember that copy of Michelle Stanek?) It's the best of both worlds--sharing inspiring music and doing it with the right licensing. 2- I am crazy inspired and I'm going to make a dance video... sort of. I promise to post more later.
But the really big deal to me is where the inspiration is coming from. 3-Several pole dancers have submitted these really genuine, sultry, exploding-with-awesome videos. It's creative discussion on a whole different level and I'm in love with the results:
Pole and break dance. Technically a whole studio of muses.
The power of the perfect outfit...
Going for a freestyle. KiKi went for something out of her comfort zone, I always admire how brave and genuine she is.
Here's Kody rocking out her newish studio, Pole Harmony!
Cricket video bomb--Extra points for taking that in stride!
I am loving this challenge and the fact that there is so much inspiration to be had by everyone involved. Each time I hear this song I get all jittery and want to dance it out, so you'll see that posted when it's ready. To join in you can Tie Me Up by Theotis or sign up to get the song and a free music license to use it for this video challenge, all the details on #PoleMovement are on PDBloggers.
I can't wait to see your videos!
