Cute Girl Practices Pole-Dance Routine, Things End Badly
To be clear: we don't discourage young ladies from learning how to pole dance. It can be a highly lucrative activity, not to mention it really helps keep a person in shape. We just want them to be a bit more careful.
This poor girl, whose name is Rachel Halliwell, even went through the trouble of setting up a camera to film herself practicing a move called the "inverted crucifix." Presumably she wanted to analyze her routine, show it to friends and colleagues who could offer feedback, and improve her dance's overall aesthetic appeal. What's not to love? Well, the ending, we suppose, but that just takes practice.
And she seems fine, by the way. No serious injury. "This was my first attempt at an inverted crucifix!" she wrote. "Not a great idea considering I had no crash mats so it's my own fault it ended badly hahah. Definitely need to work on my leg grip."
We wish you nothing but the best of luck in all future endeavors, Rachel!
