Time will tell, although I have already admitted that I like cream puffs too much to truly have hopes of looking anything like Jennifer. Bel said that when she met me, she immediately thought of a viking warrior. I get an image of a strong woman with long flowing hair, carrying a bow and arrow or sword and wearing a fur-lined bikini. I can live with that image! Because of my height, I am often called Amazon, so its not too far from something I've imagined before. Maybe I will never have the slim, dancer's body, or a super-toned, muscular body. I can only be me.
Rita has been awesome, videoing some of our classes, to show our progress and help us pick out the things we need to work on.
The first video was probably taken at the very end of Level 1 or beginning of Level 2. That means we've only had four or five classes. This isn't my favorite. The shoes I'm wearing were sticking to the floor and its hard to do some moves if I have to pick up my feet (if you want super cute, but reasonably-priced shoes, check out FUNky Pair!). Plus, I just don't like looking like Shrek next to Bel.
Level 1 at Twirly Girls
The second video is about half way through Level 2. We've only been in two more classes, but we are more aware of the cameras and how our moves come across. Its also easier for me to do some of these moves without shoes on.
Marilyn is another instructor at Twirly Girls and taught a Burlesque dance class. Keep in mind we have no dance experience and we learned this in an hour and then performed it. I thought we did pretty well!
Now....here is how I WANT to look when I pole dance:
A girl can dream. For now, I am Lori: Twirling Viking Warrior Princess. Who likes to eat cream puffs. :-)
