This time we have the hard working and super sweet Tracey Huckfield from Pagans Pole, North Wales. Also owner and creator of the All Wales Pole Dance Championships.
What made you start Pole?
So I've been pole dancing for 8 and half years now, I know to the exact week how long because I had just given birth to my baby when I started (he was just 6 days old when I had my first lesson!) You may wish to exclude the last sentence as I'm not promoting postnatal exercise, and was very naive as to the dangers back then!
What do you get out of it?
I LOVE exercise, but usually became bored of fitness trends very quickly. I spotted a newspaper advert for pole classes when I was pregnant and thought 'hell yea', exercise and sexy sounds awesome. As soon as I was accepted I started. I always say pole dancing is like marmite, you'll either love it or hate it...I was hooked from first lesson onwards.
What do you get out of Pole Dancing?
I get loads from pole, on many levels: personally it makes me feel confident, I am strong and toned, I can be sexy, dancey super strong, flexy any day of the week. Mentally it is a release and it is also a stimulant. With pole there are no limits, only constant achievements and goals. Socially I have made some fabulous friends within the industry, I have met some inspiring individuals, and my students have become like extended family.
