"What do I bring to class?" is a common question from Pole Virgins across every term. So this week we decided to take a peek into the bags of Loretta and Marulie - two Siren Pole students! From grip aid to their favourite pair of training heels, these two babes reveal all the ingredients that create their recipe for Pole practice.

Hokkaido tote bag: My sister brought this back from Japan!
Legwarmers: To keep my ankles extra warm during colder months.
Water Bottle: This one is from Ishka. I always keep hydrated while dancing.
Makeup bag: For my lipstick, powder, and comb.
Dry hands: Pole grip aid life saver!
7-inch Pleasers: They glow in UV light!
Drawstring shoebag: A sturdy alternative to Pleaser Bags.
Phone: I use this to record my practices, to see my progress.
Wallet: This is pretty self-explanatory.
Microfibre towel: For cleaning the pole + my hands.
Hairspray: Used as an extra grip aid because I’m super sweaty.
Rexona Deodorant: Pole is a workout so to ensure I’m smelling fresh I use deodorant before and after.
Scholl Fresh Step Shoe Spray: Perfect to keep enclosed shoes smelling fresh!
Phone: I use this to take photos and videos to keep track of my progress and to showcase the new moves I learn.
Gloves: This is the most important thing to me when I do pole. Don’t expect to see me up on a pole without them, because I’d be on the floor otherwise.
Pole Heels: I have a pair of these cute pink pleasure high heels. I’ve dedicated this pair as my practice heels.
Make-up: I pretty much sweat off my make up in class so I keep it in my bag for a quick retouch before I leave the studio.
Perfume: Because perfume fades throughout the day, I bring this for use after class to keep me smelling pretty as a petal.
