Hello! It's me, Justin, spreading the love of pole!
I, myself, fell in love with the idea of pole in highschool. I've searched up many pole competitions online to watch famous pole dancers do their thing, they were all quite inspiring and beautiful! I thought I wouldn't be able to do it since I came from a background of nothing ( just an artsy bookworm, hahah) and brushed the idea off to the side for a few years. Also, to top it off, being a Male made me unsure.
That changed in the fall of 2016 when a friend reignited that passion. I started training wherever I could and couldn't get enough of it. It lead me to the open-minded SPDS team in 2018 to be formally trained properly, leading to where I am now!
I am drawn towards Power-Pole, which are strength and dynamic focused moves. I love the feeling of adrenaline rushing through me as I fly!
Contemporary and exotic styles of Pole-Dance, also inspires me. That part in pole had always been a mystery to me though, so by taking classes with the talented SPDS team, it helped me express myself!
Overall, it helped kick- start my fitness journey in such a fun way! Stronger, flexible(ish), graceful and confident.
I hope that you will give us that opportunity help you in your own journey as well!
