Good Luck Ellie!

Posted on 21 July, 2016 at 15:00

One of our gorgeous students is taking part in the Miss Pole Dance UK Amateurs Competition this weekend!

Ellie started pole at the CAW studio just under a year ago.

Since then she has grown so much as a person and has become a valued member of the studio, she takes part in our pole fitness classes and also our bend and balance classes. She has come on so far from when she started, taking part in the CAW Christmas Showcase and our Year Anniversary of the studio showcase too. She performs with such passion and this comes across in her routines. Ellie is also one of very bendy students who puts her flexibilty to the test and is constantly working towards her flexibility goals.

So with all of that said, we thought we'd do a good luck blog for her!

Here's what some of our Unicorns and Ellie's friends have to say:


Good luck in your comp Ellie! You will shine like a star . You have worked so hard and should be very proud of yourself! Go out there and smash it! . Lots of love Hannah G XX

 

My gorgeous pole sister, I'm so proud of you for taking this huge step and competing. You'll be amazing! Can't wait to see you being brave, bold and beautiful on that stage! Love always, Alice R X

 

It seemed like only yesterday that you walked through the doors of my classes and embraced your first pole lesson. From being fairly shy and curious about the sport, you Ellie have completly transformed into a gorgeous butterfly. There have been some ups and downs along the journey, however you have always attacked your passion with a pounce. From blowing us away at the CAW Fitness showcase to entering MPD. You really have flourished more than you give yourself credit for! Wishing you all the best in the entire world for your competition. Myself and the CAW tribe are one step behind you all the way and your biggest fans.

 

Competitions are insanely scary, however just enjoy it. Live the moment, smile, network and most importantly HAVE fun. Whatever the outcome you know that by even taking a step up onto that stage is one of the biggest achievement of all. It is also for no one else but YOU. That alone is incredible.

I am positively glowing with pride for you Ellie. I will be with you from going onto the stage, to when you come off, every inch of the way. You really are my hero.

Smash it beautiful one. ✌✌✌✌

Love your pole mumma Unicorn (Tamara) XXX
