I was introduced to pole dancing by a friend and was instantly hooked. Pole is an amazing strengthening and toning activity, which works without you realising you are working very hard at all! My favourite part has been working on doubles routines for studio shows with my friend – trying to come up with interesting and different themes and new ideas for doubles moves. A lot of the time you end up in a laughing, collapsed heap on the floor, not knowing whose limb is where.
Going to Antarctica was a lifelong dream. I always enjoy the ‘Street Pole’ shots in pole magazines and was thinking how cool it would be to come back with a pole photo from Antarctica. On the first morning down there, I was exploring the ship and came across this deck, which was just made – it seemed – for pole! Some photos were taken that first, beautiful morning and others as we cruised through the famous Lemaire Channel.
I’m hoping to keep poling, to keep challenging myself and enjoy the ride!
