'Once Upon a Pole': Aerial Dance Show Channels Classic Fairy Tales
Dancer Kelly Maglia first discovered the power of the pole in a dance class.
“I was in the middle of my very first pole class," she said in a statement, "and I was already thinking, ‘this pole could be a tree, the mast of a ship, or, of course, the symbol of erotic awakening. The sky - or the ceiling - really is the limit!’”
Maglia decided to incorporate her newfound prop into theater productions, and her latest show, "Once Upon A Pole" -- described as a "rock n' roll vertical dance/theater experience inspired by classic fairy tales" in a press release -- will premiere at Club Fais Do Do in Mid-City on October 12. Here's a sneak peak at the performance.
