I'm Jessica. I've been pole dancing since fall 2013. I've known I wanted to try it since I heard about it, but it took me a while to decide to really pursue it. Once I started though, I was in love. I can't wait to finally fly. I've been working so hard to get my feet off the ground. I even dream about it. Sometimes it's hard to keep coming to class when everyone else can do things that you cant, but I know it will happen one day. I try to remind myself that I'm just working with a different body than they are. I've been active for a long time, and enjoy a lot of different activities, but pole dance isn't the same atmosphere as a ballet or modern dance class. Annie and all of the students I've met are an incredible support. It doesn't matter if you fall to the ground, or if you're not flexible. You don't need to have a certain body type, or be a certain age. Being on the pole makes you feel free.
