How long have you been a Pole Dancer?
About 8 or 9 years now
What made you start Pole?
I was supporting a friend who wanted to try it, turns out - I loved it!
What do you get out of it?
Pole is my happy place. It's fun to do and I am passionate about teaching pole. I am not a performer or competitor - that just doesn't interest me as much, I do pole because I have so much fun doing it, and I love to share it with others, It has given my body shape and helped me appreciate my figure - and I notice that in others that I teach too - this in turn sees more changes in how the girls view themselves as their confidence begins to grow - I get to see women flourish in this way and I get to know them for who they really are, at their best - because regular pole dance classes really do bring out the best in people.
Do you have any advice for anyone just starting out?
Try it, and do it consistently at least once a week - be brave
Do you have advice for the advanced pole dancer?
Embrace those times when you hit 'plateau' - re visit older moves and make them stronger, cleaner, flow better, transition better - you'd be surprised at how far you'll have come from just re-visiting the basics!
Thank you to Amy for the interview.
