Hello Betsy!

Lady Kori:  What work do you do?

Betsy: I’m a UX designer for a startup software company.

LK: How did you first discover pole dancing?

Betsy: It was through Groupon.

LK: Do you have any previous dance, fitness or sports experience?

Betsy: Only a little bit of figure skating when I was a kid.

LK: What made you feel pole dancing could be for you and decide to try it?

Betsy:  I was looking for something new.  The Brass Vixens studio was very close to my apartment so I decided to try a class.

LK: How did you come to be a member at Brass Vixens?

Betsy:  At first I only did 1 class per week until one day I was able to do the strength hold!  I never thought it was possible!  That’s when I knew I wanted to come more often and become a Vixen!

LK: What were your first impressions?

Betsy:  Some of the moves seemed impossible for me to do as I had no upper body strength!  Also, it was very awkward to see myself attempting to be sexy in the mirror!

LK: What keeps you committed to Brass Vixens and pole dancing?

Betsy:  The amazing instructors and the community.  It’s something I look forward to everyday!  Participating in the troupes and performances sets me a goal and makes me want to push myself to get better.

LK: What do you feel is a crucial element for a successful class experience?

Betsy:  Patience. Patience. Patience!  Every pole journey is different for everyone of us.  Be patient about the progress, accept what your body can and can’t do and don’t get injured!

LK: What has been an exciting moment for you on your pole journey?

Betsy:  There have been so many of them:  my first time climbing up the pole, first time trying spin pole, first time inverting, first time not feeling the pain from superman!  There’s never a lack of exciting moments at Brass Vixens!

LK: Do you have any pole goals?

Betsy: Ayesha!

LK: How has pole dancing and taking classes at Brass Vixens effected the rest of your life and sense of self?

Betsy:  Confidence!  I have never been happier with myself and I’m definitely so much stronger physically and psychologically.

LK: What has surprised you the most?

Betsy:  How much fun it could be to get fit and strong.
