This week on the podcast, we get schooled by Almitra Karastan on some old school pole history from her perspective as an exotic dancer, as well as some new school theory from her current perspective as a pole dance enthusiast and studio owner! Check it out here, then check out more fun stuff from Almitra below!
Where did you grow up, and what is your current home town?
I now live in Kailua-Kona In the Big Island of Hawai'i
Can you share a favorite pole dance photo of yourself?
And a favorite non-pole-life photo?
What’s your go-to pole move?
Ballerina. Just seems to flow nicely from the forward bend. It's beautifulon everyone and it's easy to hold once in the position.
Give us a sexy floorwork song.
It's a late 90's triphop stripper classic. All my favorite showgirls danced to it and it makes me feel dark, mysterious, powerful, vulnerable and sexy!
What’s a YouTube pole dance video we should check out?
It's so well produced, edgy, artist, mysterious, and quite provocative! I love seeing high qualitywork like this.
Give us a song that makes you want to immediately strip off your clothes and jump on the pole.
Who should we follow on Instagram?
Show us an inspiring image.
