MISS FILLY… Feelings, gratitude, happiness and excitement for the Pole.

in entrevista/Pole Magazine by

The tricks enshrine with a subtle energy, each figure seems to float in an atmosphere without gravity, and at the limit of balance, her body draws that flight that unleashes admiration. Today Polegood interviews Miss Filly.

What motivated you to approach the Pole Dance?

My sister wanted to start Pole Dancing and as she is 7 years older than me, I copied everything she did. I went along with her we were addicted from the very first class.

How is your life outside of sport?

I work many different jobs within the one industry – I am a competitive pole dancer myself, I work full time as an instructor at Pole Divas as well as a specialized competition coach. I am also Director of Training for Pole Divas and train up the new instructors and write class syllabus. It keeps me busy! I love to go away for weekends in the country when I can, and when, I tour I like to see as much of the country as I can.

Within your career as an athlete of the Pole, what moments would you highlight?

Winning Miss Pole Dance Australia for the 2nd time was a highlight! It was a long journey to the stage with all kinds of challenges but it all came together in the end. The process taught me a lot!

Any phrase identify you?

“Balls deep”. It´s a motto my friends and I have that means “going all in”. You have to be passion. When you want something enough – go balls deep in it!

According to your experience, what are the benefits that the discipline of Pole Dance brings to the athletes who practice it?

Pole Dance teaches you a lot about how you deal with fear, with the unknown and with stress. You can find the most amazing strength within you in pole classes or walking out onto a competition stage- strength that you might not have known you ever had! It teaches you how to listen to your body and trust in what your body can do and that is a very powerful thing.

How do you perceive the development of the Pole discipline in Australia?

Australian pole has come a long way! We are inventive, creative and have a great standard of competition nation wide. As more disciplines influence our craft the more varied the styles become and we are very accepting of both exotic styles and contemporary styles – as well as everything in between! It´s a great place to be ?

With what other disciplines do you complement this activity?

I pole dance both barefoot and with heels as I find both techniques very different – I will alternate training just floor work with pole combo training as both load my body in different ways. I stretch outside of pole as well as body weight conditioning at my partners boxing gym.

What does the Pole mean to you as an artistic expression?

Pole is cathartic – the best way to vent your feels, to show gratitude, happiness and excitement, and to fall in love with your own sexual energy and creative powers. The shows you can create can be for you or for your audience and both are validate by a supportive audience and community.

A message that you want to leave us?

Regardless of skill or studio, we should lift each other up, support the different and unique styles each of us bring to pole and celebrate our achievements as a community. #unitedbypole.

AURELIE MARLEENE. Beauty and style.

in entrevista/Pole Magazine by

She displays sensual movements while the audience applauds admiring her figures.

Beauty and style; the combination that characterizes her. From Australia, POLEGOOD presents Aurelie Marleene.

Aurelie, would you tell us how you got to Pole Dance?

I started pole dancing in July 2014 because I was tired of going to the gym. I had always been looking for something fun and challenging that would keep me fit. One day I saw a pole dancer at a strip club. She performed a drop from the top of the pole and stopped right at the base of the pole. It was so unexpected, I was amazed. A couple of weeks after that, I went to my very first beginner pole class without knowing anything about it. I could not do the splits and was scared to lift myself upside down, but I was so hooked right from the start that I never stopped training since that day!

 How is your life outside of sport?

I am a graphic designer with a passion for Typography. It makes my life quite busy but balanced: designing by day and dancing by night.

Within your career as an athlete of the Pole, what moments would you highlight?

My biggest highlight was definitely being invited to compete at Miss Pole Dance Australia after winning the Queensland state heats in 2016. I had only been pole dancing for two years and I was up against my biggest pole idols. I was terrified, but it felt like a dream. That is when my love for performing on stage was born!

Any phrase identifies you?

Never stop learning.

According to your experience, what are the benefits that the discipline of Pole Dance brings to the athletes who practice it?

There are so many benefits, but for me I would say it was finding something that would motivate me to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I am so in love with what I do that I do not need to force myself to eat healthy or get a lot of sleep. It comes naturally. I used to struggle a lot with my nutrition.

 With what other disciplines do you complement this activity?

I am already quite strong, so I do not do any strength activity outside of pole. But it takes a lot of effort to maintain my flexibility. This is why a practice contortion and stretching for about an hour during each pole session.

What would you say to all those people who do not yet know the discipline of the Pole?

To anyone one that does not know what pole dancing is, I would say that is not what it used to be. It is a sport that is evolving so quickly and is so versatile that you cannot give it just one definition. I strongly recommend giving it a try if you are thinking of starting. Chances are you will become addicted and you will find your own style that suits you.

A message that you want to leave us?

Do what you love and do it with passion.
