I am the self-proclaimed Northern California Pole Dance Ambassador. This blog is about pole dancing, weight loss surgery, health, fitness, aging gracefully, and life-in-general. I had gastric bypass in 2004 and lost 165 pounds. Pole dancing and yoga have helped me keep off the majority of the weight. I have struggled with my weight for my entire life and am on a journey of self-acceptance.
I started as a salsa dancer and instructor before I discovered pole.
When did you first start pole dancing?
I discovered pole about 7 years ago but I will say that I really started pole dancing when I met Bobbi which is about 4 years ago.
What brought you to Australia to train with Bobbi's Pole Studio?
When I started watching pole dance YouTube videos, the only person I could not take my eyes off was Bobbi and Bobbi's teachers.So naturally, when I wanted to pole-dance like the best in the world, I traveled to train with the best in the world :)
When did you open Bobbi's Pole Studio in Singapore?
Do you participate in competitions?Do you have any titles?
No, I don't participate in competitions because most of the them, I'm organizing them.
What kind of fitness routine do you follow on and off the pole?
Pole-dancing is my fitness routine, it encompasses everything from weight training to cardio, what more do I need? :)
Do you prefer to dance barefoot or in shoes?
Definitely in heels!
What do you use to help you stick to the pole?
Shaving gel and Dry Hands
What trick is your nemesis?
Hmm.. So many... Probably Ayesha with body away from the pole, fell once and could not get over my fear since then..
Tell us something people would be surprised to hear?
Oh dear.. I'm quite boring & typical.. Mmm..I used to be a Wedding Planner before I became a dance instructor?I used to plan the Hen's Parties, now I host them :)
What does 2012 hold for you?
Organising the first-ever Miss Pole Dance Southeast Asia 2012!We also have many other exciting events lined up for the year so looking forward to a very fruitful and exciting year for Bobbi's Singapore :)
