Before pole dancing, I had never taken a formal dance class. Throughout the years, my pole dance teachers ranged from gymnasts, to yoga instructors, to ballet dancers and circus performers. Years later, I love looking back and realizing that my dance vocabulary includes the most classical of moves to the most raunchiest. It makes me laugh when practicing the “VAGINA MONSTER” with my pole family while feeling like I’m extra graceful with my toes pointed. It’s a fun and weird world to be a part of. Couldn’t ask for anything more.
