From Studio to Stage: Elevate Your Pole Dance Performance with Stylish Clothing and Accessories at The Neon Loft

From Studio to Stage: Elevate Your Pole Dance Performance with Stylish Clothing and Accessories at The Neon Loft

Pole dance is not just a form of exercise; it’s an art that allows you to express yourself and showcase your strength and grace. At The Neon Loft, we understand the importance of feeling confident and comfortable in your pole dance journey. That’s why we offer a wide range of stylish clothing and accessories that will take your performance to the next level. In this article, we will explore the world of pole dance clothing and accessories, and how they can enhance your experience at The Neon Loft.

Choosing the Right Pole Dance Clothing

When it comes to pole dance, the right clothing can make all the difference. Not only does it help you feel more comfortable and confident, but it also allows for fluid movement and grip on the pole. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect pole dance clothing:

1. Opt for form-fitting attire: Loose clothing can get in the way and hinder your movements. Choose clothing that hugs your body, such as leggings, shorts, or bodysuits. This will allow you to showcase your moves without any restrictions.

2. Look for moisture-wicking fabrics: Pole dance can be intense, and you’re bound to work up a sweat. Invest in clothing made from moisture-wicking fabrics like spandex or polyester blends. These materials will keep you cool and dry throughout your session.

3. Prioritize grip: Grip is crucial when it comes to pole dance. Look for clothing with grip-enhancing features like silicone or rubberized panels. These additions will help you maintain a strong hold on the pole, preventing slips and falls.

4. Express your style: Pole dance is a form of self-expression, so don’t be afraid to show off your personality through your clothing. Choose vibrant colors, bold patterns, or unique designs that reflect your individuality. When you feel good in what you’re wearing, it will shine through in your performance.

Accessorizing for Pole Dance

While clothing is essential, accessories can take your pole dance performance to another level. Here are some accessories that can enhance your experience at The Neon Loft:

1. Knee pads: Pole dance involves a lot of floor work and tricks that put pressure on your knees. Invest in high-quality knee pads to protect your joints and prevent injuries. Look for knee pads that are comfortable, durable, and offer sufficient padding.

2. Grip aids: If you struggle with grip, there are various grip aids available that can help improve your hold on the pole. From grip gloves to grip-enhancing powders, these aids can give you the extra support you need to perform more advanced moves.

3. Heels: Pole dance heels not only add a touch of glamour to your performance but also help with balance and posture. They elongate your legs and create beautiful lines, making your moves look even more impressive. Start with lower heels and gradually work your way up as you gain confidence and strength.

4. Hair accessories: Don’t underestimate the power of a well-placed hair accessory. Whether it’s a sparkly hairpin or a colorful scrunchie, adding a touch of flair to your hairstyle can boost your confidence and make you feel more put together during your performance.

At The Neon Loft, we understand that every pole dancer is unique, and their clothing and accessory needs may vary. That’s why we offer a wide selection of high-quality clothing and accessories that cater to different styles and preferences. Our knowledgeable staff can help you find the perfect attire and accessories that will elevate your pole dance experience.

Conclusion

When it comes to pole dance, clothing and accessories play a crucial role in enhancing your performance. At The Neon Loft, we believe that feeling confident and comfortable in what you wear can make a significant difference in your pole dance journey. From form-fitting clothing to stylish accessories, we have everything you need to take your pole dance experience to the next level. Visit us today and let us help you shine on and off the pole!

The Art of Pole Dance & Aerial Fitness: Combining Strength, Flexibility, and Self-Expression

Pole dance and Aerial Arts/Fitness are unique and exciting form of exercise that combine strength training, flexibility, and self-expression. At our Bundaberg Pole, Dance, Aerials and Fitness studio, we offer a wide range of classes for people of all levels, from beginner to advanced.

Pole and Aerials are not just about getting in shape and toning your body, but also about empowering yourself through movement and self-expression. Our classes are designed to help you not only improve your physical fitness but also to boost your confidence and self-esteem. The encouraging vibe in the studio is electric!

One of the things that sets our studio apart is the emphasis on your own self journey. We believe that everyone learns and develops different aspects of their fitness, dance ability, strength, goals and desires differently. We are all unique! ย We encourage our students to let their creativity flow and express themselves through movement, to set their own goals that we can help them toward during our lessons, and to try not to fall into the dark habit of negatively comparing ourselves to others. We work hard to provide an encouraging, understanding, disciplined and motivating community for our students to be a part of.

We also understand that many people may have concerns about pole dance and aerial fitness specifically, such as fear of judgement or fear of injury. That’s why we make safety our top priority and our instructors are trained to provide modifications and adjustments, catering for students of all levels in our timetable, or even in private lessons, so everyone can feel comfortable and confident during their time in studio.

Our studio is more than just a place to workout, it’s a community of supportive and welcoming individuals who are passionate about their classes and each other.

Meet Toni

Hi there! I’m Toni! If you don’t know me already, you must be new around here! ๐Ÿฅณ Welcome! ๐Ÿ™Œ
(Please make sure you say hey below! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love connecting with people.)

I’m the Owner of this incredible place and one of the Beginner Pole Instructors. I’m also a Mum, coffee addict โ˜•๏ธ , chocoholic ๐Ÿซ , nerdy Social Media Manager ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป (@ToniJordanDigital), op-shop/bargain finding enthusiast and a creative who LOVES to organise and learn. I know, I’m weird!

Get to know me more below! ๐Ÿ‘‡

I am a Mum of 3 crazy kidlets (Girl, Boy, Girl) and a bit of a mixed bag of fun! I’m a qualified Primary School & Music Teacher (who decided teaching in schools wasn’t for me), a Singer/Songwriter (๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽ™ On Spotify/Apple Music if you’re curious), recently started my own business as Social Media Manager helping busy business owners during the day, and then I light up the night at The Neon Loft! When I’m not working, I may be getting stronger lifting at @BundyFit, doing Mum things, thinking about working ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ or enjoying a delicious cocktail! ๐Ÿน

It all started 13 years ago at my Hens party when my fav gals and I celebrated with a Pole Dance Class! It was so much fun, so much harder than I’d expected and we made a tonne of great memories. Many years later, after I had my third child, I was searching for a way to ‘find myself’ again , get fit and tone my post 3 pregnancies body and have some Me-Time. I got a second hand pole and practiced as much as I could off apps and videos in my garage until I decided to find a studio to really get into it. That was not quite 4 years ago! Time flies! ๐Ÿ’œ

๐Ÿ’– ๐ƒ๐จ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ก๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐š ๐๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž/๐ ๐ฒ๐ฆ๐ง๐š๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ฌ ๐›๐š๐œ๐ค๐ ๐ซ๐จ๐ฎ๐ง๐?
I was a dancer when I was young. Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop, Contemporary/Lyrical. I do wish I’d done gymnastics because I’d LOVE to be more flexible but I am so grateful for the opportunities I had…. I have enjoyed performing on stages for as long as I can remember as a singer, dancer and actress. I still love to dance! ๐Ÿ’ƒ

๐Ÿ’– ๐—ช๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐Ÿ๐š๐ฏ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ข๐ญ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ง๐  ๐š๐›๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐›๐ž๐ข๐ง๐  ๐š๐ง ๐ˆ๐ง๐ฌ๐ญ๐ซ๐ฎ๐œ๐ญ๐จ๐ซ?
Seeing students grow in self-awareness, confidence, fitness and light up each class. Celebrating their wins. Pushing through. Seeing themselves differently from when they started. It’s truly empowering!

๐Ÿ’– ๐—ช๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐๐จ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ฌ๐ก ๐ฉ๐ž๐จ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž ๐ค๐ง๐จ๐ฐ ๐š๐›๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ฉ๐จ๐ฅ๐ž?
Try it out before you judge. And although it can be sexual, it isn’t always. I try to encourage people to flip their thinking from automatic strip clubs and sexualisation, to gymnastics, circus acts and athleticism.

Most of the time people who have issues with what I do, would happily watch performers in gymnastics, ice skating or circus acts – wearing less clothing! In saying that, it absolutely can be sensual, sexual and erotic too and I don’t see anything wrong with that either. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

My mission is to shift the focus in our studio from the skin/figure that is showing (which is actually to grip the pole, so we don’t fall and die ๐Ÿ˜‚) to the strength, control and finesse the moves require, whilst attempting gracefulness and flow!

Pole is about so much more than people know until they’ve experienced it or know someone that has. Hope to see you all soon at The Neon Loft.

7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Pole Dance

Whenever I mention pole dance, different people have very different ideas of what pole dance is. As a pole dance instructor here in Bundaberg, I’m making it my mission to share how incredible pole dance is for increasing fitness, strength and confidence!

I am surrounded with people in and around our studio who are crazy passionate.

  • Passionate about challenging and growing themselves
  • Passionate about helping and encouraging others
  • Passionate about our city and community
  • Passionate about staying fit & healthy
  • Passionate about having time to themselves (parents especially)

So here’s 7 things you probably didn’t know about pole dancing. If you’re curious, I encourage you to come try for yourself at The Neon Loft!

  1. Pole dance is NOT always explicit or sexual! Although, confidence is sexy for sure! Oh, and not all pole dancers are strippers…
  2. Clothes are slippery! Skin is required to effectively grip to the pole. As you get better, you need more grip points to be available = less clothing.
  3. Pole dance is incredible fitness and improves whole body strength, coordination and flexibility.
  4. There is NO age limit – Kids love classes, and it’s never too late to start having some fun!
  5. Yes! Guys can definitely do pole as well.
  6. Just like in real life, there is NO ideal body type – every body is a pole body!
  7. You will bruise. We call them “pole kisses”.

Do you have something you think people should know but maybe don’t know yet, about pole dancing? Let us know in the comments!
