Yes, but as a last resort. The number of people who would like to dance is tiny. My pole dance routine is something that most of the guys know and I have a special audience and that just isn’t happening. I’m not talking about women and I feel more awkward as an overweight woman, and there’s more pressure, both sexually and professionally.”

My pole dance training started when I was 4, and at 16 I discovered the world of ballet. I was a bit of a freak until I got the chance to get into dance classes and, by 17, I was training weekly in Miami-Dade College’s dance program.

I remember when I did my spin on a wall I felt this very powerful energy from the gym and I could feel it all coming back towards us on the dance floor. What do you do next?
