Sometimes Dancers Have to Cry
Yesterday one of my friends was upset about YouTube comments left on her pole dance videos. She was subject to comments about her weight (which is ridiculous by the way), and her music choices. It's easy to be cruel from the safety of the anonymous keyboard. At least a critic puts his name and face on the page. Cowards.
Artists can really tell you a lot about the hurt that comes with sharing and rejection. How
could anyone say that this isn't a beautiful pole song. There is more
to pole than pop. You can only do so much Lady Gaga and then you have to
cry and say it with movement.
try, in the most interesting way, to swim in time. Music is time.

I'm a pole dancer, ballet dancer, ice hockey player and research meteorologist. I live in Denver, Colorado with my wife of 20 years and two Siamese cats. I found the gift late in life. I was 52 the first time I went around the dance pole and 53 when I made my first plié.
