5 Things All Pole Dancers Understand

miss fit academy
1.Rubbing Alcohol is the nectar of the gods

Without it we would all just be scrambling up greasy poles. All pole dancers should buy stock in rubbing alcohol as we could solitarily keep the demand up for it, although glass cleaner or vodka works in a pinch

2. Lotion?!?! How dare you suggest it that must not be worn!! ::hissssss::

lotion before pole

PSA: How long has it been since you moistened your skin, girlfriend? Shaving cream works well to put moisture back into skin and wont make you slick on the pole. On the contrary, it works much like grip aid but without the streaky marks or dry hands.

3. Those Perfect Clothes

Booty shorts

You know the ones. They cover all your business and stay in place. The opposite of a unicorn, but still just as rare. Pole dancers need all the skin we can get, yet we also enjoy having our butts covered in public.

4. Pole Kisses

The love/hate you feel for these trophies is complicated. Arnica gel and cold compresses help, but pole dancers take these love pinches in stride because WE EARNED THEM. Bruises mean that a dancer is still pushing to be better and learn new holds, simultaneously rejecting the idea that women should be pretty and smooth and flawless to be attractive. :P Societal norms are so lol

5. Oh, right. I'm not wearing pants...

We can't be the only ones who have needed to run a quick errand on the way home from our pole homes and realized suddenly that hot pants aren't civilian dress code. So what if it's cold in the grocery store- we have other things we'd rather be doing sans pants, anyway :D

Elevated Entertainment and Miss Fit Academy, Flying Together!

  Elevated Entertainment, an aerial performance troupe in Nashville brings beauty wherever they go...
...and they go places! The founding members of the group met in the above sirens Aerial Silks class at Miss Fit Academy. Taylor Amick quickly saw her students, Nadia Sosnoski and Kayla Darks, rise through the ranks and become well-loved instructors and well-rounded performers in their own rights. Nadia is the songbird of the group. She already has several Miss Fit Academy showcase performances under her belt where she has sung and flew through the air simultaneously. It's truly jaw-dropping to watch. You can find Nadia teaching Aerial Silks 101 & 102 at Miss Fit Academy or at Summit Sports.

     Great News! Our athletic and dedicated Kayla Darks is bringing line dance parties to Miss Fit Academy soon!  It just makes sense. Party girls (or boys) will be welcomed by Kaylas warm face and have a blast following her inspired choreography! She's a truly wonderful performer and Miss Fit Academy is so pleased and proud to provide the partnership with Elevated Entertainment that give the girls time and space to hone their skills.
     Taylor Amick, the very girl who's class spawned Elevated Entertainment, rounds out the group. She has been a familiar face around Miss Fit Academy for two years. Taylor is currently teaching Aerial Hammock and Aerial 103 and her obvious talent has spilled into academic circles as well. Find her with us or in her class at Austin Peay State University.
