That was a big surprise. Pole dancing is not a sport. But it’s like being a firefighter from World War II. You take a job and you do it because there’s no other option, but it’s not going to go all the way. It’s not worth it, because it’s so dangerous, but it’s a great feeling, and it’s all you can think about.

I spent so many years in New York doing this kind of choreography, I didn’t know what that was like. I know there are more dancers who do this than any other form of dance, but it’s still a lot of work, and you do things on instinct.
I’ve never really understood that dance is about being present in the moment. I really do want to stay on the plane. I think all of it is connected to a lot of personal feelings that I was very afraid and felt to be lacking when I was younger. And I wanted to be there, but I didn’t know how.
People used to think I was crazy, and I used to feel like I was crazy, all the time, and I didn’t know why. Now that I have that kind of love, I try not to be so crazy, or I
