The response to our little black and white photoshoot has been overwhelming. All we really wanted that day was to take photos of some new moves so that we could keep encouraging our students to keep working hard.

In fact, that morning was an a really stressful one. It was supposed to be an outdoor shoot, but it rained all morning long. We were looking for other indoor venues, but none were working.

Finally, we decided to go back to the studio to be safe. We set up the lights, put up dark velvety curtains as a backdrop, but for some reason the flash trigger stopped working and we had to pull all the curtains down and work with natural light.

This is one of those times when it really was a blessing in disguise. We held the poses as long as we could, and Pong Ignacio, our lovely photographer, made sure our lines were wonderful and the shadows hit just right. And then everything just fell into place.

Our group has always been about promoting a love of one’s body, allowing women of all shapes and sizes to discover just how far they can go. And the fact that now so many people from different parts of the world has seen and acknowledged that effort, is both exhilarating and humbling. We still have so many things we need to do as a group, and so far to go as individual pole artists.

But every day the respect and love for the sport grows, and we hope to keep pushing it on for as long as we can. Strong is the new sexy, ladies and gentlemen. And this is how Polecats Manila does it.
