Tear Away – Drowning Pool

I LOVE this song! I first used it back in February at PSO’s Triangle Pole Championships for my exotic routine, and when I was stuck this week for a song, I came back to this one. I took a few things from the beginning of that routine, but most of it was new. There were definitely some tricky moves in here – slinky slides, back rolls, balancing on the pole – so I really liked pushing my students to try out some new movements. I’m definitely feeling more drawn to rock/heavier songs recently, so I’m interested to see where that goes. I have a competition coming up that I still need to choose music for, and I’m really open to various styles right now. I’m debating doing something like this, but it’s a little out of the box for me for a regular (not exotic) routine. Then again, I want to push myself to try new and different things, so that may just be what I should do!
