Interview with Sarah from Blush Dance School Australia

Posted: Mar 19 2013

With Justine's recent tour of Australia we talk to Sarah from Blush Dance School who hosted Masterclasses with Justine. 

1.How did you first get interested in Pol dancing, what made you try it? 

I started pole dancing in 2004 because a friend sent around an email for her friend who had started teaching lessons out of a bar. And I was currently doing other dance lessons, so I definitely wanted to try pole dancing. 

2.Tell us about the pole school? How long have you been there?

Blush Dance School has been teaching pole dancing for 5 years now in Sydney, and we still have regular students from our very first lessons. 

3.What is it about pole dancing that you enjoy the most? 
I love the challenge that pole dancing presents. There is always a new or more difficult pole move or transition that motivates you to train and practice harder to achieve it. So it is never boring!

4. What are your 3 favourite pole moves and why?

I love the Outside Leg Hang, because it’s a great transition move. Ayesha, because it was such a huge accomplishment for me when I was starting out. And splits up the pole, because it impresses everyone. 

5.What are the main fitness benefits of pole dancing and how have it improved your fitness, strength or body shape?

Health care professionals always comment on my core, and I attribute that to pole dancing. It was also helped improved my upper body and back strength. 

6. What are your favourite strength training moves on the pole and why? 

Pole Pull Ups. And any repetition of moves such as Straddle, Shoulder Mount etc. As well as pole dancing for as long as possible without putting your feet back on the ground to improve stamina. 

7.What pole dancers do you admire or inspire you?

I love Jenyne Butterfly. She's a beautiful effortless dancer who clearly loves what she's' doing. 

8. How do you think pole dancing has evolved over the past few years? 

I have seen it evolve into two distinct and different styles, fitness vs. sexy. I think there is a place for both. 

9.What would you say to someone who is thinking of trying pole dancing for the first time to convince them to give it a go?

Just Do It. 

10.Three words that mean pole dancing to you.

Fun. Challenging. Sexy.
