Hello, let me introduce myself in case you don't know me :-). My name is Victoria and in 2019, I joined the Belgian Pole Dance team, by taking part in an official IPSF competition. In doing so, I qualified for the World Championships, which will be held in Montreal from 3rd to 6th October 2019.
In 2019, I also celebrated another milestone; my 40th birthday. Believe me, when I signed up to my first pole class in Autumn 2016, I did not expect it to go this far! I wanted to get fitter, stronger and more flexible and hoped to meet some nice people in the process. Well, I'm pleased to say that pole dance brought me these things, but much more. Pole dance, in fact is an addictive sport, in which the next challenge is always dangling tantalisingly in reach! It is a sport in which everyone can progress at their rhythm and find their own style, alongside confidence and firm friendships. I can honestly say that this sport has changed my life.
And so, back to the competition, the Pole Sport WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS - I can hardly believe it and I can't even describe my excitement. The reason for this crowdfunding is to help fund my travel and accommodation in Montreal, where I am going to proudly represent Belgium. I would be extremely grateful for any participation.
Even if I've already convinced you, perhaps you need a little more incentive?
For any donations of €25 or above, you will be invited to take part in a group pole dance photoshoot with a professional photographer, (Jean-Francis Gothuey), coming away with three individual photos of your choice.
Alternatively, for any single donation of €35 or above, I will offer a private pole dance lesson (beginner to intermediate plus level).
For all donations of €10 or above, I will publish a public thank you on my Facebook and Instagram pages.
For those who would like to see an exclusive premier showing of my competition routine, I WILL BE PERFORMING IT FOR YOU at Brussels Art and Pole's anniversary event on 28th September. I am more than happy to give details of the competition rules or help with any other questions you may have, if you are interested.
A big thank you to Brussels Art and Pole for their ongoing support!
Thanks for reading and much love to you,
(22nd June, 2019. I'm the one on the left, in 2nd place :-))
