Last weekend Pole Fitness Seattle instructors and artists, Yael Kallin and Sean Sellek performed at Seattle's annual Venice is Sinking Ball. The event was held at the Seattle Design Center in Sodo and created by Epiphany Events. The ball is one of the most celebrated events of year and guests dress to the nines... even in Seattle ;)
We couldn't be more proud of our team who performed beautifully and jaws dropped. Yael and Sean now call themselves Duo Helix and both teach regular classes at the Pole Fitness Seattle studio.
They competed at the PSO Northwest competition last year and won. They plan to continue to work together and have goals to bring their act to Las Vegas this fall.
Go Yael and Sean!
For those of us who aren’t naturally born (or trained) event planners, thinking of exciting group activities can be a drag. Bowling, dinner and drinks, movie nights- it’s all been done. Even worse, they’ve been done so many times that people might not want to come and you might not blame them. Enough of that nonsense though. If you’re looking for a dynamic time for a party, team event, or other group outing, here’s our take: pole-dancing.
Pole-dancing is a great activity for groups, even as a one-time event. It can be perfect for bachelorette parties, birthdays, or even team-building. It allows a group to have fun, stay fit, and gain confidence all in one go. Below our some of the specifics on how pole-dancing tailors itself to a variety of events.
Ladies, bachelorette parties are the perfect time to engage in the fun, confident, and daring side of you and your friends! With the safety and encouragement of your closest friends, a bachelorette party is ideal for trying new things and taking the time to be the sexy goddesses you all are! Furthermore, this is a fantastic way to remind the bride-to-be that no matter what her future looks like, her friends have always got her back to help her feel empowered. Not to mention, pole-dancing is dancing, it’s music, it’s upbeat tempos- it’s fun! Fun is exactly what bachelorette parties should entail.
There’s no better way (we think) to celebrate a milestone than by trying something new! Since every year will bring you new experiences, we might as well tackle newness by trying activities outside of our comfort zone. This is an opportunity to avoid the tired celebration go-tos like a dinner out and take a chance to have loads of fun with all of your loved ones. It’ll be a birthday you never forget and after this hard workout, you’ll deserve that cake!
Okay, fair enough, pole-dancing events aren’t the first instinct for team-building. We get that. As it turns out though, this is a great option to create a dynamic and confident team. Pole-dancing offers an opportunity for every team member to gain confidence which can lead to confidence at work. Just like much of your team may have never imagined themselves pole-dancing, they may have never imagined themselves pitching the idea that can boost the team’s success or taking on a new initiative. Pole-dancing can act as a boost for morale. Pole-dancing is also the perfect place to build trust, safety, and encouragement among team members. As you work together to master this new skill, team-building skills like trust and encouragement can be easily fostered.
Pole-dancing can often be thought of an individual pursuit or something you have to commit to. In reality, it can make a perfect group event. While you only have to do it once, we think it’s likely that you’ll come back for more.
