DESCRIBE YOUR POLE STYLE?
While I enjoy many different styles of pole dancing, I find myself returning to the sexy foundations of pole dancing that celebrates the human body and engages the audiences through sensuality and elegance. I like to dance with my heart and really embrace the music that I am dancing to.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING AN INSTRUCTOR?
The best thing about being an instructor is seeing my students grow in confidence and progress through the many hurdles and hardships in their pole journey. Pole dancing is a great way to escape the stress and worries of life. I’m reminded of this every time I see the joy and laughter of my students in class.
BARE FOOT OR HIGH HEELS?
Heels. Always heels
WHAT IS THE BEST TIP YOU CAN GIVE TO YOUR STUDENTS?
Don’t be discouraged by what you see other pole dancers do around you or on social media. Pole dancing is a personal journey and there are many aspects to work on. If you are stuck on a certain trick, work on other tricks or other areas in pole dancing such as floor work, flexibility, strength and acrobatics. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and explore different styles. Above all, have fun and enjoy the journey
WHO IS YOUR POLE INSPIRATION?
My students are my greatest pole inspiration. They show me just how much pole dancing has transformed their lives and brought joy to others. I am constantly amazed by what my students are able to achieve and their passion directly pushes me to improve on my own dancing. Moreover, my fellow pole dancers and the wonderful polers that I train with have continued to support, inspire and encourage me and I cannot give enough credit to them.
