Songs for the Siren featuring my first Sexy Songs CD

Email from Reader Jennifer Gillette Two weeks ago I received a sweet email from a reader, Jennifer Gillette. She told me that she enjoyed reading about my favorite songs. Then she shared her sexy favorites with me: 1. You Can Leave Your Hat On by Joe Cocker – “I can always get a rise out of my guy when I dance to it.” 2. Feelin’ Love by Paula Cole – “Pure sex. Song always made me feel sexy. 3. Is This Real by Lisa Hall – “…very sexy sound.” 4. Insatiable by Darren Hayes – “I happened upon this one last summer and couldn’t stop listening to it for days.” 5. Urgent by Foreigner – “When ever I hear this one, just one thing comes to mind…” Here’s an excerpt from my reply to Jennifer Would you believe I’ve danced to 4/5 of these? ….Is This Real was on my first ‘sexy songs’ cd!’ I agree it’s a lesser known gem! Oooo, that’s two great column ideas for future Mondays… First Sexy Songs CD Tomorrow is the anniversary of my introductory pole dance class. After taking that class, I created a Sexy Songs CD for doing at-home S Factor workouts 2-3 times

Songs for the Siren with Amanda Bassolino of Voce Keen

Songs for the Siren with Amanda Bassolino of Voce Keen

Introducing Amanda Bassolino of Voce Keen I am incredibly honored to introduce you to Amanda Bassolino, magical metalsmith, life-long dancer and pole dance teacher extraordinaire. Amanda’s creativity, intuition and passion make her a gifted teacher and artist. When she was teaching weekly dance classes, it was obvious how much time she devoted to preparing her fresh weekly playlists, made more powerful by their themes. Amanda facilitated a safe & sacred space for students to dive deep into emotion, vulnerability and bonds of sisterhood. We had plenty of dirty fun and got a kick-ass workout too. I’ve had the fortune of taking multiple session-long pole dance classes from four different women, intense three-day retreats with five other women and single classes from another two dozen. I’ve learned something special from everyone. Amanda has taught me more than anyone. One class with her made me realized I finally had an end to my planned memoir, instigating me to start writing. Another dance gave me the courage for my first pole photo shoot. The Riptide Principle & Choose Love Over Fear Mantra discussed in yesterday’s 7 Secrets Blog Hop post are from dances in her class with my Thursday girls. Most recently, she

7 Secrets I Learned Pole Dancing in My 40s that I Wish I Knew in My 20s

7 Secrets I Learned Pole Dancing in My 40s that I Wish I Knew in My 20s

June’s Pole Dance Blog Hop theme is “things i wish i had known before i started pole dancing” Pole and sensual dance gifted me with body bliss. It taught me how to drop in to my body. And listen to her speak. Life keeps getting better because of pole dancing. Here are 7 secrets I learned pole dancing in my forties that I wish I knew in my twenties. 1. Feelings are our Friends Before pole dancing I learned the importance of feeling emotions in my body. If I hadn’t, I never would’ve had the courage (or skills) to feel the fear—that I’d be the least flexible and fattest in the class—and go anyway. Still, I resisted ‘negative’ feelings. Pole dancing taught me to welcome them all. To appreciate the beauty in tears (of joy, awe, sadness), vulnerability and messy imperfection (my most recent Aha). Dive deep into emotions. Swim and swirl in them. Revel in them. Be with them. Express them through dance, music, drawing, painting, etc. There are gifts waiting to be discovered on the other side. Besides, when the universe wants you to learn a lesson, she’ll just keep triggering you until you get it anyway. When

Songs for the Siren with Pole Dance Blog Hoppers

Q2 in the May Pole Dance Blog Hop: What’s your favorite song to pole dance to? I thought I’d be the only one to list a bunch of songs and artists. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Most of us had trouble picking just one. When you find a fellow pole enthusiast with whom you share musical affinity, why not visit their blog? It might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. (Fascinating Fact:  Friendship was the most frequent response to “Q24: How has pole dancing affected your life?”) I don’t think I have a favourtie pole song, I usually just put on a dance mix from 8tracks and dance my heart out. ~ Kiki Because of my obsession with music, I often discover new sites too early. The last time I investigated 8tracks, there wasn’t much there. Now there’s a bunch tagged pole dance. One of my personal faves, The Weeknd, tops the list of pole dance artists. Thanks to Kiki I’m gonna give 8tracks another try. . Some ladies chose to list artists rather than songs. Maggie’s favorite artists include:  Tricky, Portishead, Perfect Circle, Tool, Manson My musical taste is all over the place, so I can’t even pinpoint
