Poledancerdiaries: Can You See Me?
Driving home from my Saturday morning ballet class I noticed that a new Tweet had arrived from Studio Veena. The message: Did you see Charley's new blog? As soon as I got home I read it and it is stunning. It is also here on her Blogger page. Poledancerdiaries.
Charley Crystal wrote something that touched me deeply. Can You See Me? is the title of her post. I just wanted to say that if she could write something so brutally honest about her journey as a dancer in words I cannot imagine what it must be like to see her perform. Next summer I am going to attend the Midwest Pole Dancing Championship. I hope she is there.
There are so many things I would like to share about dancers from both my dance worlds. I added Charley's blog along with some other blogs I follow to my main page. I also have two of my favorite places in the world linked to my page.
I would probably write even more about ballet but I always worry about web searches that associate a pole dance blog with the elegant world of ballet. But enough about ballet and the dual worlds some of us inhabit.
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.
