November Vixen of the month

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.
