In case you haven’t yet heard, plus size women are rockin’ the competitive pole-dancing scene! Yours truly got to witness the action first hand at this year’s Dangerous Curves: “the biggest, baddest, most awesome plus size pole competition in the country!” – an event founded and organized by Roz Mays, a true pioneer in this sport.
How was my experience you ask? Truly unforgettable! It was a night filled with beauty, talent, sexuality, and intense fun! The crowd was amazing and the energy uncontained. The women on stage are true athletes and can teach us all a few things about confidence.
Specifically, there are a couple of things I learned from that night:
You can’t assume how fit someone is based on her appearance and size. I bet there are many “fit” looking people who couldn’t do half of what these women did on that pole!
Confidence is contagious – I thought I’d never be confident enough to try pole dancing but am now inspired to sign up for a class after seeing how comfortable these women were with their bodies.
There is a lot of support for this sport and the audience in attendance was very diverse: Everyone had a blast!
Enjoy my photo recap from the event and hope to see you there next year!
