An Interview with Clem PillerClem Piller has been dancing from a very young age which came as a result of her mother taking her to ballet classes.

However, when Clem took up Pole Dancing she was re-inspired and ready to perform in competitions such as Pole Theatre Switzerland and Pole Art France 2015. With an open attitude that is relatable to all of us choreographers and dance enthusiasts, Clem has been honest in her sharing and is bound to inspire you to dance. (more…)

Carolina RamosThis week at Pole Purpose, I have had the opportunity to interview the fantastic Carolina Ramos. Carolina is an exciting professional choreographer / performer who boasts a BA Hons in Modern dance and has over 12 years of experience in the professional dance industry, combined with an additional 6 years of pole training. You will see from the interview below and through her eye catching performance work that this girl knows choreography and understands how to connect with an audience. Carolina’s work originally caught my attention because of the fluidity of the movement both on and off the pole, the seamless transitions and the heart felt performance quality.

After reading this interview, I can honestly say I have become more of a fan. I think Carolina, too, uses dance as a process to enhance self-progression and to express ideas through movement as a painter would with his paint brush. (more…)

These 5 sections were still too long so I decided that I would narrow is down to 3. Here’s what to do if you find yourself in a similar situation.
