How did you find Twirly Girls?
I luckily found Twirly Girls through the amazing Grace Garcia!
How long have you been a Twirly Girl?
I started in March of 2012.
Did you pole dance before becoming a TG?
Nooooo….I had just thought about it for awhile but was also interested in silks. I wanted to do silks for longer than pole, but found after trying both that pole was more difficult for me. I’ve been hooked from the beginning!
Which class(es) do you take? Who is your instructor?
I alternate between Triple T’s with Bel and Tricks R for Chicks with Grace.
Which move were you most excited to nail?
Ha! Cross-ankle release. After seeing how beautifully Jenyne Butterfly does it, amongst, well, all of her moves, it was really something I wanted to nail. Funnily enough I was able to do it after listening to some Christian radio show on the the way to Twirly Girls that talked about “going into the pain”. That God was in the pain because staying comfortable all the time meant you weren’t healing or growing. That night I was so elated in an odd way I have never been, and then sort of mortified because I realized how scary that is to actually hang upside down like that. It hasn’t kept me from doing it again, of course.
Have you taken any workshops? Which was your favorite?
I have taken one workshop with Jill Anne and hope to take many more.
Do you like to dance in heels or barefoot?
For where I am right now in pole, I like to dance barefoot. I have never tried to dance in heels. I don’t know when I will be ready for that, but I think it looks amazing and shows such skill, balance and strength.
What is your favorite song to dance to (at this moment)?
Night Light by Jessie Ware.
What is your guilty pleasure?
