Pole dancers are pole dancers because their bodies allow for graceful and controlled movement without pain. The most common type of pole dancing is acro-pole dancing, in which the performers walk, then turn and walk the same position, like a traditional acro-dancer, but with poles.

I started out a little bit with the men because I don’t really fit in with those guys. They don’t believe in that. I would go back to the gym to try and improve my body.
Do you have other hobbies?
I watch sports like basketball and volleyball as well. When I was younger I was a
