OLGA LEFTEROVA. Ukrainian Style.

“Train not for honors and medals, train for pleasure and health”…These are the words of Olga Lefterova, a beautiful Ukrainian girl who combines the discipline of Pole Dance with her profession and her family. An artist with style … Ukranian style. We invite you to meet her, OLGA LEFTEROVA for POLEGOOD Magazine.

Olga, what motivated you to approach the Pole Dance?

I was motivated by the fact, that for a long time I was training fitness but internally feel that something’s wrong, than I’ve tried dancing. And again it wasn’t completely mine, unfortunately dancing didn’t give me enough physical activity. For me pole dance became an ideal symbiosis of creativity and development in dance, and complex physical activities.

How is your life outside of sport?

I’ve graduated as a graphic designer, I work as a freelancer, and with pleasure combine these two professions. And the most important thing in my life is that I am a mother of a three-year-old child and a happy wife.

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

If we talk about social networks, I’m publishing things related with the trainings mostly; I don’t like to share my daily personal life.

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

For me, pole dance is a very multifaceted sport. That’s the coolest advantage! Everyone can find something special for themselves. There are dance, plasticity, strength, endurance, flexibility… You can always find directions, wherein you can develop all the time.

How do you see the development of the discipline of Pole, in Ukraine?

Over the past few years Ukrainian pole dance has reached a very high level. I look with admiration how tremendously it’s mowing forward, especially in children’s sports. And I understand that children who are performing at the Championships now, in a few years will move to the category of professionals and soon it will take the form of professional sports at the Olympic level.

With what other disciplines do you complement this activity?

Regularly I have stretching classes, and I want to add choreography lessons in the nearest future.

A message that you want to leave us?

Train not for honors and medals, train for pleasure and health, if you like the process, results will always be!

Thank you Olga, for allowing us to spread a little bit of your story.

TJAŠA SKUBIC and her passion for the Pole.

She tells how she approached the Pole. She assures that before she realized it, she was already in love with discipline. From Slovenia, in an interview for Polegood, TJAŠA SKUBIC.

 

Would you tell us how you got to Pole Dance?

It all started 5 years ago when I moved next to a pole studio and at the time I haven’t been doing any other sports so it was a really nice opportunity for me to take a class there. And before I knew it I was utterly in love with this beautiful form of art.

How is your life outside of sport?

I’m a student at Faculty of sports where I’m studying kinesiology. In my spare time I teach pole dance at a local studio, and I never miss an opportunity to hang out with my friends, boyfriend and family.

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

The most important moment was when I became a pole instructor because this had been my dream since I started. I’d also need to highlight my experience with competing, because it had a big impact on me as a dancer and performer. Just the other day another amazing thing happened, Indi Pole app has contacted me about becoming one of their instructors on their platform. I’m beyond thrilled about collaborating with them.

Any phrase identify you?

Please, keep looking. Not for a person, but for your passion, your love, your courage, your goals, your dreams, your happiness, yourself. Keep looking. Explore yourself before you explore another. Know your worth, know yourself. Only then will you know what you need over what you want. You need yourself to become your own.

This is something that really inspires me and I always try to follow it.

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

I’d say the most important thing would be the confidence that you gain with pole dance. All the pole dancers I know started loving their bodies more and accepting themselves as a whole after they had started taking pole classes. But of course,

there are also physical benefits like becoming stronger and more flexible which not only make you a better pole dancer but also make you feel healthier and more powerful.

With what other disciplines do you complement this activity?

I go to twerk classes every once in a while and do some yoga to get more flexible and to relax during exam periods or other stressful times.

Why would you advise doing Pole Dance?

I would advise pole dance to everyone who wants to gain muscle, become more flexible and boost their confidence overall. There’s also another thing about pole dance that isn’t mentioned often enough in my opinion. While learning new pole tricks, you’re constantly achieving new goals. I think having goals is super important because they keep you motivated and help you realize how much you’ve progressed.

A message that you want to leave us?

Always believe in yourself and never stop doing something you’re passionate about.

Vanesa S. Zylinski- POLEGOOD Magazine

POLE KIDS NATIONAL TEAM- KYRGYZSTAN. Little Stars.

Polegood is pleased to interview two trainers of young promises of the Pole, who from the distant Kirgyz Republic, tell us their experiences and expectations in relation to the discipline. With us, the Coaches of Pole Kids National Team of Kirgyz Republic , the sisters Yana (ballroom dance instructor and BM in music education) and Kristina Sivirina (MSC in sports science, master of sports in Rhytmic Gymnastics).

Yana, could you tell us how your relationship with the Pole began?

Well, it all started with an awful back pain both for me and my sister Kristina. She is a former rhythmic gymnast and I am a ballroom dancer. We both had spine problems and used to go to manual therapist to get it fixed. One day our doctor said, that he is tired of seeing us every month and we should get more muscles in our back to prevent the spine from “falling apart”. So, the doctor suggested to try pole dance (!) as the fastest work out way. And one needs to trust doctors, right? That’s how it all started.

How did the decision to start a team come about?

My sister and I used to take part in pole competitions, but we’ve never seen kids performing on the pole before. Our friend Olga Chjao-Tun-Kun, owns one of the biggest pole and fitness studios in Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan), she is also the president of Pole Acrobatics and Pole Dance Federation of Kyrgyz Republic. Kristina used to work in that studio, as choreographer for little girls, teaching body ballet and gymnastics for beginners. One day Olga suggested to try to bring kids to the pole, and as Kristina already was coaching rhythmic gymnastic girls, it was a new challenge. And it was accepted. We started with a small group of 5 kids and now we have three groups of beginners/advanced girls and The National Pole Kids Team.

Can you tell us about the institutional project that you develop with the Children?

It’s all Kristina’s idea and the programm. I don’t know how other pole people work with kids, but our program is built on the rhythmic gymnastics base and our own methods of work. My sister is a real nerd. She has the MSc in Sports Coach Science and she took pole sports for kids as a part of her research for final paper. Kristina actually still writes little notes for most of our training sessions. We have a very efficient tandem: Kristina works with bodies (stretching, physical activities etc.) and I do the “brain work” and dance part for the routines. As an educator, I try to bring new techniques of teaching from school to the pole ))) We differentiate practices: for example, we have flexy back day: warm ups and exercises and all pole tricks are for the bendy back. The other day we do “all the legs” day: splits, exercises, etc. We have classic choreo days as well (kids do not like it so much, though) .

As Pole sport is officially recognized in our country, we actually have a team and we attend competitions: National and Central Asian Сhampionships, Russian Open Championships etc.

 What benefits have you found that has the discipline of Pole for children?

This is amazing, how pole sport can combine strength and flexibility at the same time. Choreo and elements are beautifully tangled. It is so enthralling to watch our kids grow and evolve so fast, not just physically but as sportsmen too. I believe, that athletic childhood is so much fun: it builds stronger character, raises kids in dignity of sportsmanship, and team-family always supports you no matter what. Our kids develop self-confidence and positive attitude through sports.

What type of students attend?

We accept girls starting from 7 years old and up to 15. And there is a reason for it. As our experience proved, this is the right age to start, firstly because of physics of little bodies (their hands are so tiny and we are obsessed with safety). Also, we measure their weight and height to monitor progress of their growth. Any girl can try pole sports, it doesn’t matter, if a kid tried any sports before. But we do check the health condition. Seriously. Kids on the national team do health-check twice a year. Eyesight, EKG, pediatrician etc.

Any phrase that identifies you?

There is no “I can not do it”.

 How do you see the development of the Pole discipline in Kyrgyzstan?

Our federation is officially recognized in Kyrgyzstan and we are so proud of it. Now we are working hard to bring our sportsmen to the top.

Any message you want to leave us?

We are so excited to be a part of fast growing pole sports community. All together we can bring this sport to the Olympics. Pole People, let’s unite!

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

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.

http://https://youtu.be/dF1jdW51wQc

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.

Salomé Epullan. Perseverancia y Creatividad.

“Soñalo, creelo, crealo y convertite en ello”. Son las palabras de una auténtica escorpiana que se destaca por su tenacidad y perseverancia y que no duda a la hora de perseguir sus sueños. Enamorada del Arte Exótico, nos cuenta que disfruta de los nuevos desafíos que ella misma se propone experimentar. Una Biografía que invita a animarse a más.

Para POLEGOOD, desde Córdoba, Argentina, Salomé Epullan.

Habilidades y destrezas 

Las habilidades en las que mejor me destaco son la perseverancia y la creatividad.

Entreno siempre con o sin profesor, me encanta armar mis coreografías como también improvisar, diseñar vestuarios, editar la música, videos y crear personajes. Me gusta proponerme nuevos desafíos y siempre busco aprender cosas nuevas para complementarlas artísticamente.

En el pole lo que más me gusta es el Exotic. Para mí el Exotic es el arte de una provocación fina y sensual que combinado con el baile luce las figuras y movimientos más estilizados.

Intereses Personales

El poledance se transformó en mi manera de revelarme como atleta y como artista. Con el tiempo fui cambiando de academias para formarme como atleta de competencia y como instructora. Así fui creciendo y combinando con otras disciplinas como la danza, stretching,  tela y taekwondo.

Me gusta salir a correr como una distracción. Amo la música y el cine, son mis dos complementos diarios que me incentivan y me generan siempre nuevas inspiraciones.

ANNA HALDER and her creation; SCHOKO POLE.

She does fitness, dance, bodybuilding and is children´s instructor. Leader by nature, She tells us how she managed to achieve everything she has. Creator of her own studio, SCHOKO POLE, tells us from Switzerland how her relationship with the discipline began. Our interviewee today, ANNA HALDER. “I want, I can, I love.”

Anna, could you tell us how your relationship with the Pole began?

I am fitness, dance, bodybuilding, children’s instructor with many years of experience. I got married and moved to Switzerland. After the birth of my son, after 2 years I went to the first fitness club that I came across to look for a job as a coach. But since mine. And when I came to the studio, I found out that this is a fitness completely different direction. The manager suggested that I stay in the class to try what it is. And since then we with half-year are inseparable.

 

How did the decision to start a school come about?

Over time, I began to work as a coach , visited various studios for further training and took personal trainings from different coaches. But I always knew that I had to open my own studio, where I could bring my own rules, create my own direction and the mood of the studio.

In principle, I’m a very creative person, and therefore emotional. And to such people as me it is quite difficult to be subordinate. And the school is my inspiration and embodiment of me. In another way, I do not represent.

 

What is the name of the Pole School?

School Name: Schoko Pole Dance

Immediately explain:

In the past, I’m a dancer. My stage name is Shoky

Because it seemed to everyone that I was always just chocolate.

But I pay more attention to the title, which will accompany the fate of the studio and its development

Chocolate is a delight, an eternal classic, it’s elegant, the rich will always be number.

 

 

What are the characteristics of the School?

All that was listed about the meaning of the name is present in my studio, as I intended.

In addition, I made a special emphasis on mothers with children in our studio has a children’s playground in which children play with pleasure, paint. And at the same time, the mother can afford a lesson or two. The child feels the presence of the mother. And everyone is happy.

Also, in my studio, much attention is paid to students who would like to participate in competitions.

I myself am the organizer of the competition in Zurich for a half-year: Exotic Action Competition.

My students have top-level results in various competitions not only in Switzerland, but also in Europe. Competition and preparation is my passion. So I pay so much attention to this.

 

What type of students attend?

In the studio come a differently different coninging people: from 4 years to infinity. Because in the studio there are children’s training aimed at developing the mobility of the child, where we stretch, we perform gymnastic elements, we study sports equipment and also use a pylon. Also in our studio, we offer training for people of age, which is very important.

And of course the main group is women 20-40 years old.

 

Any phrase that identifies you?

My life is a film, the script of which is only me. And I decide how it will be.

My film is an incredible and amazing fantasy: somewhere very sad, somewhere funny. But this is a film about what any dreams come true.

 

What expectations do you have regarding the discipline of the Pole?

My expectations are none. I just love polandance. I do it, I develop it, I live in it. But, I know for sure that this is a sport that is not a momentary fashion explosion. There will always be a puddle, because with the accuracy I can say, on my huge sporting past, this is the most amazing sport. The figure changes very quickly for the better, mobility, health, self-esteem, like-minded people. All this gives a half-degree to a greater extent than another sport.

 

Any message you want to leave us?

There are three rules: I want, I can, I love

What you want to achieve and manage to do it. And if you do this, then invest in this love.

 

Thank you Anna, for letting us know your Pole story.

SANDRA BOOKER. Life lessons.

 Life presents us with challengers, and confronting them is part of the human essence.

Sandra Booker inspires us with her life story …

Would you tell us who Sandra Booker is?

My name is Sandra Booker. I am a professional musician, composer, arranger, and of course, pole dancer. I am currently in treatment for bladder cancer, but through music and pole dancing, I have changed the trajectory of my life, improved the quality of it, and perhaps saved it. I am committed to living in the now with joy, gratitude and grace and showing others how to use pole dancing as a way to create joy and gratitude and self-empowerment in their own lives. It has made this journey possible when it seems unbearable.

What was the reason you decided to go to Pole Dance?

I was recovering from a devastating car accident in 2007, which left me 50 lbs. overweight, a partially severed right shoulder, fractured left hip, facial lacerations, and overall, deeply depressed. I was emotionally, spiritually, physically, and socially crushed. I couldn’t work and my life was at a stand still. The operation in 2008 to repair my injured shoulder resulted in a disfiguring scar on my upper right chest above my breast and my financial life in shambles from suing the state of California under the MICRA laws. The attorney even kept the product liability settlement money.  

In 2009, I would suffer the loss of my musical partner and friend killed in a car accident while on his way to perform our first in concert in New Orleans, LA. I was devastated! I began contemplating the value of my own life and if it was worth living any more. After being in a state of shock for two years, I happened to catch a commercial about a dance studio that offered pole dancing and aerial silk classes. I was captivated by the beauty of it, was close to my home, so I made an appointment to go. The studio was the now defunct Goddess Fitness Dance run by Emma Ridley in Sherman Oaks, CA. After trying pole dancing in 2011 for a few months on-and-off, I left convinced this was a young woman’s sport, but I returned in 2015 with a vengeance and it changed my life. I fell head–over-stilettos in love with everything about it. It was my life but it became my lifestyle. It gave me the power to see what I’m still capable of. It made me feel alive and strong on the inside and beautiful and brave on the outside. The reason I pole dance now is because it taught me how to love and be in love with myself no matter the circumstances of my life.

When I received my diagnosis in November 2016, I had advanced enough to be a dance instructor at Pink Pole Party (Burbank, CA) and this was a major blow. My motivation remained high and returned to work in less than 30 days after having a radical nephrectomy with a bladder cuff. Sadly, my cancer returned within 3 months of that procedure forcing me to take a leave from work and finally leaving studio in April of 2017. Nevertheless, I have continued to dance, and I have created a pole dance conditioning program for women suffering with various forms of cancer to remind them that they are beautiful on the inside and the outside. It’s 2018 and my battle continues with all the emotion ups and downs associated with this disease but it has also taught me how to let go of what we can’t control and to embrace the chances we have to live and grow in the moment and be better individuals.

 

Since when do you practice it?

I started practicing pole dancing in 2011 as a means of exercise. Now, I practice to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of pole dancing and how it has helped and still helps me discover and redefine my sense of self. Pole dancing requires a great deal of discipline, honesty, self-awareness and trust. It’s great stress relief too.

 

What does it mean for you to practice Pole Dance?

I practice because it trains my body and mind to communicate with one another simultaneously based on my imagination and creativity. It’s a physical form of artistic expression that doesn’t require speaking or singing. Although I have trained myself to sing jazz while pole dancing and it’s a great challenge. Collectively speaking, it’s gives me the foundation I need to create and present my art in a visual and musical way.

Why would you recommend Pole Dance?

I would recommend pole dancing because it saved my life…twice.

What inspiring message could you leave?

Life is for living and dancing is life. Let yourselves dance and if you can do it on a pole, that’s even better.

From the thousand-year-old China, with us, in an exclusive interview, COCO KE HONG.

 

Coco, what motivated you to approach the Pole Dance?

The first time that I approach the pole dance was in 2012. I didn’t have any foundation about dance. I worked as a waiter in a bar. I saw some pole dance show there which interested me. I also heard that pole dance is highly paid. So I found a school to learn pole dance.

How is your life outside of sport?

Shopping, listening music, swimming

What were the best moments of your artistic career?

During 2015-2016, when pole dancing was not well developed in china, I won  worldwide pole dance championship in Asia and Europe.

Any phrase identify you?

No pain no gain. It’s never too late to learn.

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

Loose weight, body sculpt, enhance self confidence, physical power

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

I think that the pole discipline will be getting better and better in china. It will be accepted by more and more people. When people talk about pole dance, they will think of pole competition, not night club dance.

With what other disciplines do you complement this activity?

Fitness club, gymnastics, satin dance, flying rings, but I practice by myself

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

I think that pole dance is like my underwear. I need to have it with me everyday. I cannot live without it.
