It Takes Dedication and Passion

Please visit my educational site. www.professorsophia.com

I have been performing off and on for many years.  For anyone that thinks it is an easy field to be in you are sadly mistaken.  It takes hard work and dedication.  It takes a thick skin and the ability to see the bullshitters.  But most of all it takes passion for what you are doing to drive you forward.  This dedication and passion will make the hard work all worth it.  The hours upon hours of rehearsal and fine tuning.  The drama of scheduling and booking gigs and having to work late hours then early hours then late hours.  But I love it.  I love the stage and I love performing.  I enjoy being able to express myself through my version of art.  My passion is my expression.  My expression comes out through my art.  My form of art is through dance and movement.  I cannot do without it.  It is in me and part f who I am.

I have for the longest time wanted to take aerial classes.  Silks to be exact.  But that looked hard and I no longer have the upper body strength I once had.   With pole, it’s hell hard (lol).  But it’s easy for me to build with a pole.  I can, for some reason, wrap my brain around the idea of me doing pole first and more easier than silks.   Learning any form of aerial meant spending money that was dedicated to other things.  After about a year of thinking about it.  I did it.  I forked out the money to learn.

I have never ‘paid’ for any professional advancement of my art.  It was never something I could budget for.  This is the first time.  Paying for pole classes is the first time I have shelled out money for my art.  And I am slightly frightened by that.  But I am excited as well.  I can feel the different in my arms and in my technique already.  I am so focused on adding aerial to my skill list.  Even if it’s basic aerial with the pole, it’s something I did.  It’s something I put my mind too and made happen.  And for that, I am excited.

Never give up.  Never let someone (or yourself) say you can’t do something.  Never let your size, your style, your background hold you back from being your dream.  It is really easy to fall victim to the negative voices floating around.  Just stay focused.  Look ahead and know you are a star and will meet your goal.

Aim high and think big.

I Started Pole Classes!

Yup!  I sure did.  I took my first class today.

For the longest time I have been wanting to improve my fitness level.  I have always been a gym girl.  I needed to sweat hard and feel the soreness to know it was working.  I could never use the cardio machines.  I never had the attention span… it would get boring.  So I took the high energy cardio classes.  Kickboxing, spinning, powerlift… things like that.  I no longer want to be in a gym environment like that but I do want to increase my fitness.  I enjoy being flexible and strong.  Not to mention I would love to add aerial work to my performances someday.  So I am doing something about it.

I had researched for a bit.  Looking at various pole class studios in the area and they all looked the same to me.  They all had about the same price for pole classes and offered just about the same thing.  So I decided to put it out to my Facebook friends.  All of the comments said one place, Pole Palace.  So I called last night and took my first class today.  And I gotta say, it was pretty bad ass.  The prices are reasonable and the studio is just the right size.

I usually expect to be the only big girl when I do anything fitness oriented and this was no exception.  But I didn’t feel uncomfortable about it at all.  I was a little apprehensive since the last time I really *tried* to work a pole was Y.E.A.R.S. ago but I figured everyone has to start (or restart) somewhere.  The instructor and I chatted for a bit and then it was time to get down to it!  We did about 10 minutes of warm up which included stretching and mild cardio movements.  Then she split the room into groups by level of skill and we were able to work on what we wanted to.  She had me do some conditioning moves and work on ‘the fireman’.

The instructor was great.  So were the other ladies in the class.  I need to build my upper body strength and core in addition to learning the moves.  So I’ll be doing planks, push ups, and core workouts to build up these muscles of mine.

I can’t wait to be able to climb to the top.

SQWEE!!!

Oh man.  2013.  It was a year.  First we thought we were all gonna die then we realized it’s about growth and positive change.  Then the roller coaster began.  I am still not sure what all happened within these past 364 days.  But I am happy to be seeing 2014 around the corner.  Was 2013 bad?  Oh no, not at all.  But was it crazy?  Yup.  And crazy can be good.  Very good.
No long ass recap.  Just looking forward to the future.

And with 2014 upon us, we are all making new years resolutions and taking time to reflect on what has happened this past year.  I don’t believe in resolutions.  Because traditionally, they never are followed through with.  I prefer vision boards.  Physical representations of what a person would like for themselves and their life.  For me, I use art paper and draw out my plans and goals.  On the first of the year, I spend time and set intention into what I want for myself in the coming year.  It’s a good way to stay on track.  I have not done this for over 3-4 years.  And it’s time I start doing it again.

2014 is it. 

I am going big or I am going home.  There is no other way.  So with this said,

HAPPY NEW YEAR SWEET LOVERS, FANS, FRIENDS, AND HATERS.

Move with intention and kindness.
Allow yourself moments of nothing-ness.

Latest Performance Video: Good Girl by ME!

My very first passion has always been performing.  I have been on the stage in someway, shape, or form since I was 13.  Whether it was modeling, playing my flute, acting, or dancing… It’s in my blood and it’s in my heart.  I love it.  I love the stage, the sounds, the energy… the more energetic the audience is, the more energetic I am.  I adore it!

Here is my most recent performance.
Enjoy!

A Horror Heroine? YES, That’s me!

I have worked in non-adult film before.  I have been in one film and a few TV Series.  Nothing major.  I was an extra in the film ‘The Auteur’ where I had two or three lines.  I was also an extra in ‘GRIMM’.  I love all forms of performing… it’s been a passion of mine for years.   Well….. yesterday….. I got some amazing news!

Watch my video blog to see what it is!
