A Sultry Summer School Showcase!

This year's Summer School Showcase was on point thanks to the hard work and dedication of our students and teachers. The sold out show was bananas. There were acrobats, hoop artists, pole dancers, hula hoopers, lip sync battles, surprise guests, and someone even won an exclusive bag of goodies courtesy of the show's sponsor, Hustler Hollywood.

Here's my personal favorite quote overheard before the show:
Dancer #1: "I'm so nervous about performing in front of people!"
Dancer #2: "Me too, a little. But this is a safe space to do this. You know everyone's gonna cheer for you!"

Before the show, complementary champagne was available... from a hoop of course!

As per usual, our enigmatic host, Dasica, was fabulous and funny! After a quick welcome it was SHOWTIME! ::jazz hands::

First, the hoop dancers were out in force. 

If you missed the showcase, this is the face of a performer who has just shocked a room with an amazing hands free drop. If you did spend your Sunday evening with us WASN'T THAT AMAZING?!?

Jaw? I'd like you to meet the floor. Our Aerial Silks 101 instructor, Nadia, pulled out a brilliant performance and SANG AT THE SAME TIME! 

The advanced aerial school girls, helmed by Miss Taylor, truly wowed the crowd in the last aerial performance of the night.

Then it was time for the lipsync game! At which point, obviously, we all went to church. Hallelujah! Even the crowd was entertaining!

Then it was on to the pole dance room where Pole level two kicked off the poling festivities with a Mean Girls inspired routine.

Pole level three blew us all away!

Next, we were treated to a dance-off between three male audience members. One of these men is the husband of a pole dancer. Can you guess which one? :)

On to the solo performances!  Instructor Catalina Wild brought the house down with her Grease inspired performance!

Also, splits.
Miss Pole Tricksee showed the crowd what they could expect to learn in her Floorplay class. So sexy and slinky!

And finally, River Guns showed us how she got her nick name when she brought the house down with her show closing number!

Independence Day in Nashville, Tennessee

4th of July in NashvilleFireworks are objectively awesome. The origin of fireworks dates back to the Han Dynasty in 200 B.C, predating even gun powder. It is believed that bamboo possibly served as the first firecrackers. Bamboo grows so fast that pockets of air and sap become trapped inside and, when heated, these pocket of air exploded and POOF! firecrackers!

I can't imagine that the first person who unwittingly stumbled upon this phenomenon was anything other than flabbergasted. Today, that aghast reaction has turned into one of joy and celebration. This Independence Day, like all independence days before it, thousands of firework displays will be held all over the United States of America. But... why?

The short answer is because John Adams said so. Which makes a lot of sense with some historical context. During the Renaissance, fireworks became popular thanks in part to figures like Peter the Great and Louis XIV using pyrotechnics in nationalist and imperialist celebrations. It remains popular in Europe and around the world to this day. It's no surprise that Adams would have brought the pomp and circumstance of the day to the first Independence day in 1777.

Aerial Silks at Miss Fit Academy
This year, our very own city of Nashville will be home to the largest fireworks display in the nation. When fireworks can't be found in the city, come see us at Miss Fit Academy for the next best thing. You wanna see colorful hotness flying through the air? As Nashville's only aerial boutique, that's kind of what we do!

We look forward to seeing you in the crowd for some epic fireworks - and we hope to see you in a class too!
