It’s just past Valentine’s Day so here’s a quick little post about love. Love for the art of pole dancing. Love for the men and women I’ve met directly because of pole.

I started pole dancing in 2008, following some personal turmoil that I won’t get into here. Since then, pole dancing has provided the best of therapy–physical, emotional, psychological, you name it. I have gotten stronger in every way imaginable! So in honor of that tremendous infusion of strength, here’s a little list of things I did not (whether I could not, or would not) do before pole dancing came into my life:

  1. Wear a bikini in public. 
  2. Chinups. Not even one.
  3. Pullups. Ditto to the above.
  4. Walk in 7-inch heels. Nay–slink in 7-inch heels.
  5. Admire my back in the mirror.
  6. Quit my day job to follow my bliss.
  7. Automatically walk with my shoulders back and down . . . in short, carry myself with a dancer’s posture
  8. Understand my femininity. Truly understand it, that is. 
  9. Understand and believe in the transformational power of dance.   
Cupid. ‘Cause, uh, this is a Valentine’s Day post. Lame? Kinda, maybe. But I felt like I had to! ;D
The list could go on and on (and on, and on, and on!) but I think I’ll stop it here. You all get the point. 
So a belated Happy Valentine’s Day to my beloved pole community. Whether I’ve met you face-to-face or not, we are all brothers and sisters and I love you for what you do.  🙂
