When I finally made the decision to make the Sodo studio I had a vision to create a place feminine yet powerful because I believe that the two things can go hand and hand.
I love all things vintage and wanted to hone in on the classic beauty and glamour of the golden age and have that feel reflected in the studio and in some of our classes and workshops.
When I teach my style is "classic", the polished Art of the Tease. This is very much the center and core of the "Bordeaux Process" Class series.
I'm so thrilled to finally be able to offer this class and a vintage collection of lingerie, hair flowers and more.
After a long journey of teaching pole in several studios and my home I've finally taken the plunge and leased my vary own space! - Emily
Its is a beautiful plain canvas now and I look forward to transforming it into a work of art that will inspire and be something loved by everyone. To further this thought it is centrally located in Seattle's Sodo district, an up and coming arts community. With small and locally owned businesses sharing this neighborhood I feel blessed and empowered to bring Pole Fitness Seattle to more students.
Mary Ellyn Weissman owner and founder of Empowerment through Exotic Dance in Chicago created a new kind of pole competition that is schedule for August 26th 2011. It will consist of three divisions: Elite, Rookie and Masters. The most notable and I think the most historic for women everywhere is the Masters Division. Open to all dancers regardless of their months or years of experience. No limits to the type and skill level of moves allowed. Dancer must be 40 years old and over. This is groundbreaking to the pole community and demonstrates that there are a great deal women who are trained, dedicated and absolutely incredible on and off the pole athletically. This is a venue and which they can recognized. It is long overdue.
The Masters finalists are truly an inspiration to all women and a reminder that regardless of age women can achieve the body they want and own it!
I also would like to congratulate local Masters Finalist and personal pole inspiration to me, Noelle Wood!
