How did you find Twirly Girls?
I found out about TG’s about a year before I actually joined…. I saw a flyer at a downtown festival in livermore, and it so intrigued me that I could not stop thinking about it !
How long have you been a Twirly Girl?
I’ve been with TG’s for 2 years now! I’ve always been in fitness from gymnastics in high school, aerobics in the 80’s, and bodybuilding in the 90’s…. Pole has been the best of all!
Did you pole dance before becoming a TG?
I did start taking pole lessons right before I joined TG ‘s….. A friend of mine who is the singer in an 80 ‘s rock tribute band’s girlfriend taught classes, and since I knew both of them from going to his shows, I felt safe and comfortable starting there, as I really didn’t know what to expect! But I had to drive to SF on Friday evenings and it was a hassle, so I looked for a studio closer to me….. Bel was so friendly and welcoming, I instantly felt like it was the right thing for me!
Which class(es) do you take? Who is your instructor?
I currently take Friday triple T’s with Bel, as my work schedule isn’t consistent except for Friday being off. I was in Jades PoleEmotion class before , which was so fun and sensual! I learned to walk in heels and lap dance!! I’ve also had the pleasure of make up class with AJ’s invert class….. He is so amazing and an exceptional instructor, as well as being one of the nicest persons I’ve ever known !!
Have you taken any workshops? Which was your favorite?
One of the fun workshop’s I’ve had was when Jade taught the Lioness class, sexy and fun. ( but hard on the knees !) lol
Which trick were you most excited to nail?
I’d say my first cross ankle release!
Do you like to dance in heels or barefoot?
I love to dance in heels, but most of my training has been barefoot….. Heels feels so much sexier!!
What is your favorite song to dance to (at this moment)?
Wow, my favorite song to dance to ?? So many….. But right away I have to say “girls girls girls” by Mötley Crüe !
What is your guilty pleasure?
Guilty pleasure…… Well, having raised 6 beautiful daughters, and grandma to 9 wonderful grandkids, gone to college and back to college while trying to be a full time mommy…… I give so much of myself and energy to them and my career…. I provide women’s health care, and deliver babies at San Joaquin General Hospital which is a county hospital for the under served. I also am an Angelic Reiki Master….. My healings are always free for those in need. Given the professional demands of my job, and need to be a responsible parent and grandma ….. When I can, I go to rock concerts, where I am free to let the sexy out and let go and have fun!! Very fun and therapeutic!!
