Meet the newest addition to the studio! The dance pole!
It’s something I’ve wanted for awhile, as I love the expression, the release and the artistry that it creates within a boudoir photo shoot.
I have taken classes myself and WOW is it a workout. Pole dancers are incredibly talented, flexible and strong. I used muscles I did even know I had.
Let’s start this session addition by being clear about three things.
First, this is NOT a stripper pole and don’t call it that (see why below). It’s simply a dance pole that anyone can use. I have found the dance pole community to be one of the most inclusive and accepting communities around. They embrace all bodies, all humans, all skill levels.
Also, when you use this, unless you have extensive pole training, it’s not like I’m going to have you sky high climbing on the pole. You would need training for that.
Lastly, this pole’s weight limit is 400 lbs. I invested in a size inclusive pole!
You can now add the dance pole to your boudoir session, the option can be found on the booking page!
Here are two things I want to highlight within this post: 1) why using a pole is an extra sexy enhancement to your boudoir session; 2) why we’re not ever going to refer to this as a “stripper pole.”
Why Using a Dance Pole in Your Boudoir Photo Shoot is Sexy
Boudoir photography is a beautiful way to celebrate your body and your sexuality. It’s a chance to capture your sensuality and femininity in a way that makes you feel confident and empowered. One way to add an extra element of sexiness to your boudoir photo shoot is by incorporating the dance pole. In this post, I want to highlight why using the pole in your boudoir photo shoot is a great addition to your session and how it can enhance your overall experience.
Adds a Sense of Playfulness
Using the pole in your session can add a sense of playfulness and fun to your session. It gives you the opportunity to try something new and embrace your inner dancer. You can experiment with different poses and movements, and let your body flow freely. It’s a chance to let loose and have fun while capturing beautiful and sensual images.
Enhances Your Confidence
Dancing on a pole requires a certain level of confidence and strength. By incorporating a dance pole into your boudoir photo shoot, you’re challenging yourself and pushing your boundaries. This can help to enhance your overall confidence, both during the shoot and in your everyday life. It’s a chance to feel strong, sexy, and empowered.
Adds a Unique Element
Using a dance pole in your boudoir photo shoot adds a unique element that sets your images apart. It’s not something that everyone does, and it can make your photos stand out in a beautiful and memorable way. It’s a chance to create images that are truly unique to you and your personality. I photograph this a few different ways with unique light set ups – including fog and neons.
Celebrates Your Body
Dancing on a pole is a beautiful way to celebrate your body and all that it’s capable of. It’s a chance to embrace your curves, your strength, and your sensuality. By incorporating a dance pole into your boudoir photo shoot, you’re celebrating your body in a way that’s both beautiful and empowering. You’ll see and appreciate your body in a whole new way!
Using the pole at the studio is a sexy and empowering way to celebrate your body and your sexuality. It adds a sense of playfulness, enhances your confidence, adds a unique element, and celebrates your body in a beautiful way. If you’re considering a boudoir photo shoot, consider incorporating a dance pole for a truly unforgettable experience. Remember, boudoir photography is all about celebrating your body and your femininity, and a dance pole can help you do just that.
Why a Dance Pole Should Not Be Called a Stripper Pole
The term “stripper pole” is often used to refer to a dance pole, which is a pole used for fitness and dance purposes. This term can be damaging and stigmatizing, as it perpetuates negative stereotypes about pole dancing and those who participate in it. In this post, we’ll explore why a dance pole should not be called a stripper pole and how it can harm the perception of pole dancing as a legitimate form of fitness and art.
Pole Dancing as a Legitimate Form of Fitness
Pole dancing has gained popularity as a legitimate form of fitness in recent years. It requires strength, flexibility, and endurance, and can provide a full-body workout. Many studios offer pole dancing classes as a way to improve fitness and build confidence. By referring to a dance pole as a “stripper pole,” it undermines the legitimacy of pole dancing as a form of fitness and reduces it to a sexualized stereotype.
Perpetuating Negative Stereotypes
The term “stripper pole” perpetuates negative stereotypes about pole dancing and those who participate in it. It suggests that pole dancing is only used for sexual purposes and that those who participate in it are promiscuous or immoral. This stigma can be harmful to those who enjoy pole dancing as a form of fitness or art, as it can lead to judgments and discrimination.
Pole Dancing as an Art Form
Pole dancing is also a legitimate form of art. Many dancers use the pole as a way to express themselves creatively and artistically. They use the pole as a prop to enhance their movements and create beautiful and visually stunning performances. By referring to a dance pole as a “stripper pole,” it reduces the artistry of pole dancing to a sexualized stereotype and undermines the hard work and creativity of those who practice it.
Do not demean the dance pole community but labeling this a “stripper pole.” This term is damaging and stigmatizing, and perpetuates negative stereotypes about pole dancing and those who participate in it. Pole dancing is a legitimate form of fitness and art, and should be respected as such. By using the correct terminology and recognizing the skill and creativity involved in pole dancing, we can help to break down stereotypes and promote a more positive and inclusive view of this beautiful and empowering art form.
