It takes a whole host of qualities and attributes to be a professional pole dancer. You must be brave, brave and braveer. You must be very adaptable and courageous. You must have the drive and the tenacity to push the limits of your skill set and your discipline. I think the toughest challenge for most is how to adapt your way of learning and practicing. You have to learn and practice something. You have to adapt it well and it takes time to do that. To put it into simpler terms, you have to learn something from scratch to be able to master it. That can be something as simple as how to hold onto a pole or how to turn your head at the right time. Even if you’re a professional, that can take a few months to build up. That’s something I think is much harder work. I think you get better and better with time.

Obviously you have to be careful not to get too excited or lose your way, but I tried to use my confidence to enjoy it and enjoy the process of growing or figuring it out. And I have to say, there is a lot of excitement associated with it.
Do you ever feel insecure about what you’re doing?
Sometimes I do feel like the guy on the show who is doing his thing and everyone else is looking at him, admiring him, feeling jealous or insecure. But it’s all part of the art, just so you know—some people are just too good for that to occur again. I’m not afraid of heights, or the pole. I’m just afraid of what other people think.
Do you have any regrets or worries about a lack of success?
Of course. I have more than 25 years in the dance world and I have worked with some great people but the
