I discovered pole dancing not long after moving to Austin, Texas in 2015. I took a simple little class at Vamps Dance, and I have never stopped since. One class turned into two and into three and finally I purchased my own pole to keep up with my new obsession-performing. I have found a family of women who love and support every inch of me, and in return I have begun the process of learning to love and support myself as well. It’s a hard process, and some days are horrendous, but when I’m on that pole I can do anything. Even if that thing is loving who I am. Join me as I continue the trek to self-discovery and self-love-thirteen feet off the ground.
