Not surprisingly, so did I. And I lost weight doing pole dancing. You can be thin like me at 40, and you can still lose weight doing pole dancing.
When you first started performing, did you ever envision yourself going out into the world with your dancing or that that’s what you wanted to do? How many years ago was when did you start?
I was in high school when I first got into dance, and I started dancing when I was around 13 years old. I do think I started at 13, as I think we all do. So probably at that age it was just like, “I want to do something and I’m going to be my own damn self and decide what I want to do.” That’s when I really started doing pole dancing to be different. It was my way of changing my whole perspective of myself and my body. It just so happened that it was a part of the circus. And so by that point I was dancing and it became something that I was really into to the point that I knew I wanted to be out there. So I got pretty much where I am now.
You can’t believe you are in this kind of situation where all of a sudden you start becoming more into something that you have that’s different than who you were when you were in high school.
I think I just had the right attitude. I just wanted to get a taste and I really wanted to dance around the world in the circus. Now, if somebody asked me what exactly I wanted to do, I’d probably go something like, I really want to go to the Olympics, or maybe I would go ballet. But I was like, “I’m going to be my own damn self, I’m going to be my own damn self, and that’s what I’m doing.”
You are a bit of a controversial person, how do people react to you? People would probably say, “You really don’t realize what you’re doing.”
It’s pretty easy to take it personally. I think that people who are into it actually kind of want to have a chance to see the world and experience it. I think that’s what I was trying to do. Maybe what gets lost in all of this is the fact that there’s a part of me that enjoys it. And that’s kind of what I’m trying to tell y’all. There are certain parts of me that just want to experience something and meet all those people who like it; there
