This oriel is actually an earlier design of mine -- from my GlamGirls series. But I had to make a new one for a client and I decided to post it because it turned out so well. This beautiful Marilyn Monroe look alike, holding onto to her diamond-studded pole, is actually Russian opera star Anna Netrebko on the set of Massenet's opera, Manon. This photo illustrates to me the inherant beauty of dancing and one of the reasons why I teach it -- it is a physical prop that can be used to accent poses, illustrate a woman's strength, and serve as a willing (and uncomplaining!) dance partner.
Pole Dance Diva can be purchased at my Kentucky Girl Etsy Shop.
