Review and Feature| Stellar Goes Pop! Polecats Manila 4th Summer Recital

Admit ladies there was a time in your life or even probably know that you would have wanted to do Pole Dance Fitness. Pole dancing has come a long way from seeing it as a form of sexual display in bars but now is a way to get fit and is recognized as an elegant way of showing the strength of the human body. 

My first time to try a pole dancing class blew me away and after watching last night's performances, I was truly inspired to rekindle my eagerness to return for classes (in due time and budget hahaha). 

I was amazed with the long line outside of AFP Theatre in Camp Aguinaldo, and it got me excited to get inside. 

Based on the program we were going to be treated to performances with a wide range of pop songs from the 90's to the most recent pop hits. I liked how the program was arranged that they would feature the beginner's moving on to the intermediate classes which of course built up the momentum as well as our expectations. 

So here are the photos from each number I got to see. I didn't leave my seat! hehe

Pole Tigers 


The Whole Cast and Crew!
My phone died in the middle of the act so I missed out on photos of two acts: Beginners 1, Just Dance by Lady Gaga and Beginners 2, Crazy By Britney Spears.

There was dead air though in between acts which I felt could have been more better if they placed a little more creativity with it while the lights were dimmed and you see the bustle of the crew wiping down the poles byt it didn't dim my excitement to see each act nevertheless.

I was in awe with the performances and I felt like I was at buffet where you pay for a superb meal to your satisfaction. My head was bobbing to all the songs, especially the 90's hits. I loved the soundtrack altogether. You just wanted to jive with it.

Although I didn't know anyone personally among the performers but I felt like I wanted to give them my personal congrats for the whole effort practicing and facing the challenge to perform in front of a packed theater. 

It was definitely a night to savor and it is no wonder why Polecats Manila's Stellar Recitals have been much raved about. 

I really hope to get invited again to the next recital and maybe who knows, be a part of the program in the future. Wink wink*
