Beauty and style…
From Latvia, Alyona Amber tells us how she got to Pole Dance, and what this discipline means to her. Champion in different Exotic championships, invites us to know more, in an exclusive interview!
Amber, would you tell us how you got to Pole Dance?
I danced for many years and once agreed to a contract in a circus like show-dancer. Acrobats in the circus inspired me to try pole dance.
How is your life outside of sport?
My whole life is a dance. At the moment I’m working on two works related to dancing. The rest of the time I sleep and eat. The situation is saved by travel. Traveling helps me relax and find inspiration.
Within your career as an athlete of the Pole, what moments would you highlight?
Two of the brightest moments:
My first performance at the competitions. I performed with the number of the snake at Pole Emotion competitions in Latvia and worried until competition day about 3 months. I will never forget how I sat on the stage and took a deep breath and gave myself to the dance.
Workshop invitation to Brazil. I never thought that I would travel so far. I was excited very much and this trip will stay in my heart forever. It’s very cool that the pole dance unite the dancers from all over the world and that there is an opportunity to meet everyone.
Any phrase identify you?
“The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.”
According to your experience, what are the benefits that the discipline of Pole Dance brings to the athletes who practice it?
Any dancers and athletes have an advantage over people who did not do anything like that. Because they know their body better and are able to control it. But this does not mean that pole dance is not available to everyone. You just need to start and work hard. Pole dance is a very grateful sport. I see it watching my students.
With what other disciplines do you complement this activity?
I attend dance classes of different styles.
