“Burlesque is turning exploitative to empowering – because it is using a woman’s fantasy.”

“I don’t at all have any shame about being sexual, and I’m not embarrassed about it, I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me, because I do believe sexuality is a power that we all have.”
Maya Angelou, Poet
Just this line… I dance every time Maya!
“Does my sexiness upset you? Does it come as a surprise that I dance like I’ve got diamonds at the meeting of my thighs?”
Why I Dance
This is really beautiful – an expression of womanhood, self-expression, sexuality and individuality all in one.
“What started as pole fitness has become a journey that changed the way we think about ourselves and other women; we learned to better love ourselves, love our bodies and to take back the power of our sexuality.”
