A Pole Dancer’s Perspective or is it?


By Nadia Genois I’m a pole dancer. I also am a lot of other things, especially as identities are fluid and in constant evolution. Through movement you create the form in which you live. A certain quality. Why did I choose pole ? What attracted me to it ? Why am I staying ? As […]
