Congratulations to Kristen who is our student of month for January!
VF: What made me try pole dancing?
Kristen: First, I absolutely love dancing in general, it has always been a passion of mine. I had heard about pole dancing awhile ago and then when I saw that JoAnn's was offering it, I knew the time had come to give it a shot.
VF: What were you thinking while you were participating in your first class?
Kristen: I thought - oh yea, this is awesome. It's challenging and fun and always something new.
VF:What do you like about it?
Kristen: Besides everything, I like that it's exercise and dancing all in one. I like that it's all what you make of it, that you can make it about keeping in shape or about seeing how creative you can get in the movements and routines.
VF: What would I tell someone that's thinking about trying it?
Kristen: Give it a shot. It doesn't matter what you think your capabilities are - anyone can try it and look beautiful on the pole. No one is going to judge you and just have fun.
VF:What makes you stay at Vertical Freedom/Jo-Ann's dance studio rather then somewhere else?
Kristen: I have a history with the dance studio that goes way back and the instructors are great!
VF: What are some of your future goals you’d like to accomplish?
Kristen: Definitely inverting and learning more routines.
VF:Is there anything else that you’d like people to know about your pole journey? Kristen: Hmmm... my journey so far has been amazing. Tried something new, love it, and I just want to keep going. I started doing it when one of the first workshops came out and will continue on until my belly gets in the way. :)
VF: Hmmm...you're belly is getting in the way for a very good reason!
Thank you Kristen for your dedication, commitment and your inspiration. You're exactly what Vertical Freedom is all about - just being you! We're looking forward to helping you with your inverting goals and seeing you grow as a pole dancer!
