How did you find Twirly Girls?
I found twirly girls on yelp. My best friends and I wanted to take a pole dancing class for fun so we did a taster class with Grace and I became addicted.
How long have you been a Twirly Girl?
2 years at the end of the month
Did you pole dance before becoming a TG?
No but I have a background in dance, gymnastics, and cheerleading. Pole dancing seemed like a way to use all my previous training and challenge myself.
Which class(es) do you take? Who is your instructor?
Currently I live in Vegas so whenever I’m back I drop into whatever classes I can make it to. I’ve been helping out with Bel’s friday morning classes for the month of December and taking a few of AJ’s classes but I started out learning from Grace and have taken class from Jade and Sean Michael as well.
Which move were you most excited to nail?
I was super excited to nail the Jade Splits and most recently twisted grip Ayesha
Have you taken any workshops? Which was your favorite?
Yes. I’ve taken workshops from Philip Deal, Alethea Austin, and Evgeny Greshilov. Evgeny’s workshop for contemporary pole at Pole Expo was my favorite because it allowed me to use my dance background and I love his choreography
Do you like to dance in heels or barefoot?
I usually dance barefoot but dancing in heels is fun
What is your favorite song to dance to (at this moment)?
I love slow contemporary songs. My favorite is still Stay by Rhianna but I’m currently choreographing to Say Something by A Great Big World
What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure other than dance is Jack Daniels Whiskey and Country Music
