The Impulstanz programme is (almost) out! Here’s a sneak peak at what I’ll be offering this year… I’ll also be speaking at the IDOCDE teachers’ symposium again, this time with “Being & Doing Sexy” :)

AND performing “Body Rhymes with Pole” as part of a workshop (see performance page!).

How joyful is your day today?

Success-Abraham-Hicks Are you flying high today, or swimming through the mud?

If you are in the mud, no problem – accept you are there, and work out the best way of swimming out (presuming you want to get out).

I wish you fins and wings, and I am always there to offer a hand up! See my coaching pages.

Pole Fusion Competition performance

One of many performances during the competition…because pure MCing is not enough for me!

Pole Fusion Festival

BigSpenderNov2014-1

 

“The Girls” performed my Pole Show Girl choreographies again in Sarahcademy’s “Searching for Love” show on Saturday as part of Pole Fusion Festival @ La Venerie. I was proudly in the audience!

This picture is with Patricia, from the “Big Spender” number. Big thanks to Guy Dubreucq!

On Sunday, however, I was up onstage as Mistress of Ceremonies for the Pole Fusion Competition – introducing competitors, singing, playing ukulele, improvising some contemporary floorwork & pole etc etc etc :). The winner was Joy Sevinc Gurmen from Turkey – well deserved!!!

Super big thanks to Stan Arte Vizion for these photos!!!!

Writing myself out of the closet

Now that Body Rhymes (improvised spoken word poetry & movement) has been outed a few times around Europe including this summer at Berlin ImproXchange – Performing Presence, I am letting some of my writing see the public light of day. You’ll find it under Writing in the side bar – mostly poems, and some prose tidbits. Enjoy!

Searching for Love – Sarahcademy

Next up is the Sarahcademy performance “Searching for love” where my pole show girl students will be performing my choreographies. I’ll be surprising you between acts! :)

Be better mindset

 

Tonight’s inspirational theme from Word Porn …and 99u‘s talk by Heidi Grant Halvorson on a Get Better mindset (as opposed to Be Good mindset). A fantastic reminder as I’m in the studio rehearsing Body Rhymes for my upcoming performance in Toronto’s Long Winter :).

Children AND adults – let’s play!

Great article about giving childhood back to children so they can develop their playing skills…and continue to use them throughout their adult lives!
