How did you find Twirly Girls?
Through my internet friend, yelp! It was to get my “good girl” coworker to come out of her shell before she had to leave for her nursing program in Boston.
How long have you been a Twirly Girl?
I’ve been in and out of it, but a smidge over a year!
Did you pole dance before becoming a TG?
Noooo, but I was dabbling in other things like hip hop, jazz, ballet, tap, and contemporary.
Which class(es) do you take? Who is your instructor?
I take AJ’s ‘Tricks and Inverts Intermediate’. Then when I’m not tied up on the weekends, I take Ellen’s ‘Pole Flow’ and Grace’s ‘Graceful Moves’. J I would loooove to take more classes if my body wouldn’t take so darn long to recover.
Which move were you most excited to nail?
I was always excited and nervous to nail any and every move thrown at me. Thinking back on it, I’ve come a long way with my little chicken arms, pole jumping, and bruising like tofu (tofu doesn’t actually bruise). ANYWAYS, I was more surprised if anything when I solo-dolo landed in my Superman.
Have you taken any workshops? Which was your favorite?
I have! AJ’s ‘Aerial Silks’ and Seanmichael’s ‘Spin Pole’. I don’t think I’ll ever have a favorite – everything I have learned and will learn are invaluable.
Do you like to dance in heels or barefoot?
Barefoot and socks for sliding across the room @_@
What is your favorite song to dance to (at this moment)?
I loooove the World of Color music/soundtrack, but that’s about 30 minutes long and it’s more gooby dancing. You know what’s silly though? I used to love the song “Sliding Down the Pole” by E-40. ‘There she go sliding down the pole. One dollar bills coming out her asshole.’ Who would’ve guessed I’d actually be sliding down several years later? HA
What is your guilty pleasure?
Sushi and bobaaaaaaaa. Feed me and I’ll love you forever :3
