My husband and I watch Shameless – he was into it and watched it regularly, and by virtue of being in the same room while it was on, I got sucked into it. I’m simultaneously horrified and intrigued by the lives the people in the show (and I know many people in real life) live. This song was on the show a couple weeks ago and my husband commented that he was surprised no one had used it for a pole routine yet. We both set off to see who could find it first since Shazam wasn’t working: he found it on Soundcloud, but it wasn’t anywhere else. I found the band’s Facebook page, and it looked like they had created it just before that episode aired, so it was a brand new song! I immediately was reminded of Tynesha Brown’s amazing routine to River by Bishop Briggs last year, mostly because the songs are in the same vein and she did such a good job interpreting that music! This is definitely not my normal kind of music, but something about it resonated with me, so I used it for class.
My favorite moments in this routine are the heel clack – step – step at :23, the little kick – scorpion kick up to sit at :47, and the end chest circles, leg twirls, and pose. I also love this skirted bottoms from Vekker LA! I had so much fun dancing in them: they definitely put an extra pep in my step.
