Getting to Know You – Sara

In January of 2017, one of Sara’s coworkers asked her if she wanted to join her for a beginner pole class. On a whim, Sara said “yes.” After only a year and a half at Aerial Dance, Sara joined the instructor team in June of 2018. What’s even more impressive is that Sara has no…

When Life Stinks…

One of the things I love about Aerial Dance is the safety – the safety to tell the truth about what is happening in your life and, rather than judgement, to be surrounded with love, support and encouragement. I’m very raw, honest and real today and I’m able to share this part of my story…

Asking for Help

Most of you know, I’m a naturally shy person. By the time I get around to asking someone for help, I’m either so frustrated I’m ready to give up, or I’ve screwed something up so bad I have no hope of fixing it by myself. Unfortunately, pole is not exempt from this character flaw. I…

Dear Pole Mama

Dear Fellow Pole Mama, I share your struggles, I know your burdens, I feel you worry, hurt and frustration. I was talking with a friend of mine about my pole fitness the other day when she asked why I chose to continue to pole dance after having my daughter. I explained how it’s helped me…

From Dark to Light

Have you ever had a class where nothing goes right? Moves you’ve been able to do for months fail you as you slide to the floor like a limp noodle… Confidence shattered, frustration rising, self-confidence shaken.
