My first solo competition was at Pole Sport Organization's Seaboard division, in the Championship Level 4 Junior/Senior category, on the 19th August 2017.
Of *course* I had to bring back my favourite pole theme ever and do a Lara Croft: Tomb Raider routine ;)
Clearly there are *many* things I am not happy with in this routine (some are obvious from watching the video); this was not my best run through (by far). The spin pole was very slippery and many people messed up on it.
Having said that, it was a great experience with lovely people! As someone with ZERO background in dance, sport, performing etc, I just wanted to challenge myself.

Thank you to Samantha Star and Michelle Natoli for their help with the routine!
