Good luck to you all!

AJ Pole Dancing on Britain’s Got Talent

As I understand it, AJ (aka Adam Jay) of Pineapple Studios, London, is supposed to be appearing on Britain’s Got Talent this evening, in a very ‘tongue and cheek’ performance.

Updated May 31st 2010:
Unfortunately, as it later transpired, it seems as though for whatever reason, apart from a very brief snapshot of him during one of the main adverts, his feature didn’t come to fruition.  I’m not sure if it appeared on one of the ‘More Britain’s Got Talent’ type programs, but look forward to finding out what happened and updating this post accordingly.

An interview with Dave Kahl

Dave was kind enough to get in contact today, to let me know of a video interview taken whilst in Tokyo, of him, discussing men in pole and the events he’s been involved with:

There’s not too much actual physical pole stuff in the interview (although there’s a few moves from some strong men and women, switched to occassionally during the interview, for ‘background shots’). 

However, the video as is, has been a good opportunity for Dave to talk more about men in pole dancing, and share his own experiences.

Keep up the good work Dave!

Boyesque – male performance

Discovered this video through some friends at Bodybarre today.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNQI5tZKbvc&feature=related

It’s an interesting video, great location, and a very confident performer. 

Although Mark hasn’t reached the same standards of tricks and skill on the pole itself as most of the other videos below, he’s certainly got great potential for the future.

I look forward to seeing how he progresses.

A man wins an international pole event!

For the first time in an international pole competition (although there was Mr Pole Fitness UK 2009 a month or so ago), they’ve finally allowed guys to compete (albeit in their own male category)

Surprise upset at world pole-dancing championships – NBC-2.com WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Naples, Florida

The winner was Dave Kahl from Australia, and it’s great to see finally, a greater recognition of men in pole dancing competitions.

We’re still a long way off of course from an effective balance between men and women on the pole, but at least these first steps are getting there 🙂

Amazing strength male pole performer

I’ve just been recommended this link of another amazing male pole performer.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozIuqXsXRzw

His name is Dominic Lacasse, and I think is the strongest male pole performer I’ve seen.

Some incredibly smooth ‘air walking’, as skilled as some mime artists, and I think the first time I’ve seen a ‘Chinese Flag’ with someone facing their hole body upwards!

Very impressive stuff.
