My Life as a Pole Athlete

Dance Background: I have never taken formal dance lessons, but I used to perform/dance airbands in grade 3 to the other classes in school during lunch break!
First time Pole Dance: I started October 9th, 1994 in Victoria, BC, Canada. I needed to make money, so I became a stripper. The dancers were so beautiful and I wanted to be like them.
Favorite Pole Trick: I love handsprings most but enjoy them all.
Most inspiring Pole Athlete: Everyone that comes to Pole Expo. I've invited all my favorites.
Training Times: I teach 10-25 hours a week so rerely practice unless I'm preparing for a performance.
How I define Pole Dance: Pole Dance is fitness and art. As a form of fitness you are training anaerobically, aerobicly and for flexibility. As an art form, Pole Dance allows you to express emotions and show your soul. Pole Dance is empowering; life changing; magic.
Pole Dance is...: Athletics, Sexy, Fun
Pole Dance vs. Pole Fitness: Pole Dance can be what strippers do or we do in the studio. Pole Fitness is with a fitness goal in mind. Pole Sport is done in a competitive atmosphere. I speak about this at University of Las Vegas twice a year.
Be a Dancer or Judge: I used to compete in the 90's. I'm really comfortable and proud to now be a judge!
Titles I hold: Extract: 2nd Place 2009 Fitness America Figure Short; 2nd Place 2009 Canadian Fitness and Figure Nationals - Figure Medium; 3rd Place 2008 Canadian Fitness and Figure Nationals - Figure Medium; 1st Place 2007 Canadian Fitness and Figure Nationals - Figure Medium; 1st Place 2005 BC Championships Figure Short; 2nd place 2003 BC Championships Figure Figure Short; 1st North American Exotic Dance Champion (Dancing); 1st Canada's Rookie of the Year 95/96 (Dancing); 1st Canada's Western Champion 95/96 (Dancing); 1st Canada's Edmonton Champion 95/96 (Dancing)
Reason to quit Pole Dancing: I will NEVER stop Pole Dancing! Even if I could no longer walk, I will still be teaching, helping, inspiring, even after I die.
