How is it that you’re one of the few pole dancers in the community?
This was not always the case. Growing up, my friend was very shy and reserved and would have never considered going to a class if someone had not been friendly enough to get him to do what he needed to do. A family member taught him and taught him well. At the same time, there was no one in my neighborhood or in my school that knew how to do pole dance. So I joined a class in a friend’s classroom. It was amazing. I learned how to do several moves, and after a while, I was dancing on my own.
What’s a typical day like?
I teach class for about an hour a day. The dance routine starts around 7 p.m., and the dances are at about 7 a.m., 5 p.m., 2 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. They last roughly one and a half to two hours.
What do you see as the most rewarding aspect of being a dancer?
It is the feeling I get when I hear the sounds of the drum beat. I get so filled with energy. I also get to show off the moves I learn. In our community, it is easy to feel insecure about how you look in your bikinis; you might think you look cute, but if your friends see you, they will not be amused. In dance, it is not difficult to make people laugh. But you can get quite emotional with the audience too. They laugh at your mistakes and you laugh at their too. This is a very gratifying aspect of dancing.
What’s the best way to introduce people to pole dancing?
People who have never seen you in your bikinis before might think you are ugly and awkward, when you are very nice and confident. I always tell women that pole dancing is about empowerment. The way you present your body, and the way you dance, show others that you know how to be empowered.
What’s the single best advice you have ever received?
Do not be afraid to ask for help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help because it is a community of like-minded people. If you are uncomfortable or shy or embarrassed, please just tell someone. Most of the time, people are genuinely curious about what
