My Life as a Pole Athlete

First time Pole Dance: For fun and a distraction from school. I started in summer of 2005 at Tantra Fitness.
Favorite Pole Trick: Any drops, flips and dancy moves!
Most inspiring Pole Athlete: Jenyne Butterfly: She is always coming up with new tricks and can adapt to any style there is. Tammy Morris: She is the reason why I started Pole Dancing.
Training Times: 5 days a week and around 2-4 hours each when I´m home.
How I define Pole Dance: Think professional dancer meet gymnast and combine both skill sets on a vertical bar!
Pole Dance is...: AWESOME, Cool, Sexy
Pole Dance vs. Pole Fitness: I think it goes hand in hand together. I find Pole Dance as a form of art and beauty, whereas Pole Fitness: Pole Fitness as a showcase of strength.
Be a Dancer or Judge: Judge.
