Our First Twirly Girl of the Month for 2018: Dawn Pettey 2018 January Twirly Girl.

How did You find Twirly Girls?
I’ve known Patrick for several years dancing with him in Zumba. He was always telling me to come take a class. Finally, I had the means and time flexibility to try. I was hooked after my first class!dann 3
How long have you been a Twirly Girl?
Six months

Did you pole dance before TG?
This is my first experience pole dancing. I couldn’t ask for a more supportive place to learn and dance.

Which classes do you take?
Mostly, I take Grace and Morgan’s classes on Monday. If my schedule clears, sometimes, I am able to take Patrick’s class, Janet’s or a weekend combo. I’ve also tried silks and love them as well. I’m looking forward to trying lyra.

Who are your instructors?
I’ve mostly been learning from Grace and Morgan. I really enjoy the challenge of Patrick, Janet, and Ellen’s classes as well.

Which move are you most excited to nail?
I JUST got my layback over my winter break from work, which I am SUPER excited about. I am looking forward to learning Superman and getting my head flat!

Have you taken any workshops? Which one was your favorite?
I’ve take. Morgan’s floor work workshop which I really liked. I have wanted to try the sexy heels, acrobatics, and AJ’s sexy workshop, but my schedule hasn’t permitted. I’ll get there, though!

Do you like to dance in heels or barefoot?
I do like dancing in heels. I feel sexy; they give fantastic lines, and it’s fun! However, I am a super newbie to it. (I don’t even where heels regularly. Lol) I got a very sexy pair of neon pink ankle boots that I can’t wait to try.
I adore dancing barefoot, though. I tend to put my whole body into big expressive dance, so my bare feet serve me best that way.

What is your favorite song to dance to (at this moment)?
My favorite song to dance to right now is “Earned It” by The Weekend. I performed to it at Trick or Twirl, and it really gets my inner pole kitten moving. 🙈

Do you have a pole dream?
I would love to perform. I’m not sure about competing (although, that’s not out of the question), but I love performing. I was a cheerleader in college and performed here in Pleasanton in community theater. This is my newest adventure!

If you wanted to say something about Twirly Girls, what would it be?
I would say that Twirly Girls is my dance home. Bel, the instructors and fellow students are so encouraging and accepting. Coming in totally fresh, I was encouraged to try new things and push my limits. I am super self conscious and like to get things right away, but I never felt like people were judging me (only me judging myself). And even when I was the least experienced in a more advanced classes, the instructors worked with me on my level. I love the comradely and genuine friendship I feel here. Like I said… home.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Hmm… I like to indulge in all manner of pleasures, and I rarely, almost never, feel guilty. But by definition, my one guilty pleasure would probably be Nelly. Anytime I hear him, the volume goes up, and the moves bust out… even in the car.
