Polecats Studio: From Beginning To, Hopefully, No End

7 Apr

We’ve said it many times in the past, how we were just once a group of women in love with pole, forming a group so we could have a t-shirt made. When the gigs and events slowly trickled in, we would sit down over healthy protein shakes, talking about one day owning our own studio. JUST KIDDING. They weren’t healthy protein shakes, they were plates of rice and lechon and boxes of dessert.

But seriously, we would sit around, fantasizing about our own little studio, with a juice bar and a full set of X-Poles. We laughed about it, daunted by the largeness of the responsibility.

Cut to three years later, and here we are, covered in concrete dust, aching from all the sanding, labeling and installing of our own set of X-poles. It hasn’t quite sunk in yet, and at the same time we are awed by how real things have become.

We’re opening our doors to our first set of students on April 9, 2012, Monday. Months of hard work will finally be shared with our beloved Kittens and Tigers, and we cannot wait.

For those who supported us and helped us get here, A BIG FAT THANK YOU! Even if you simply prayed and supported with your words, it’s still highly appreciated by all of us :)

We hope that you stay with us as we progress, make mistakes, learn and become the best version of ourselves. Here are some photos of the studio from rubbles to completion. Thank you again, and we hope to see you on the 22nd floor of Strata 100, on F. Ortigas Jr. in Ortigas on Monday! Let us turn your world upside down :)

    Polecats is a family that I will forever be thankful for. They made me believe in myself again during the time that I felt so down. One day, hopefully this year, I will go back and continue the wonderfully journey they all started me on.

    Tomorrow, these girls are opening their new home to new and old kittens alike. Congratulations, Mama Cats! ♥

    Love it! The juxtaposition of the poles and the mural of silhouettes with the gray toned triangular shapes makes the place look and feel exciting and dynamic! Wish I lived in the Philippines , ‘cuz I’d be first in line on opening day!! So proud of my pinsan Mirell and Congrats to you all! The studio looks fantastic cats!
