Here is more about Amber Ray.
How long have you been doing pole dancing?
Over 6 years now
The moment you realised you love pole dancing?
The first day i walked into the Studio. I thought it was so cool and had all the fun things that i liked about dancing, up in the air. That was before my first lesson even!
Describe your style.
I like to change it all the time, depending n what mood i’m in. Either Jazz, contemporary, lyrical, rock or more of a gymnastic feel.
Jade split drop. It’s the best when you can hear the growd gasp, and the noise the skin makes on the pole makes the move even more dramatic!
Tools of the trade, what can’t you live without when pole dancing?
Music! and a pole! I guess that’s it! Sometimes if i’m cold ill use some Dry Hands.
Any hobbies or passions outside of pole dancing?
I still try to get to “normal” dance classes, but i havn’t been for a while. I try to attend dance shows too, as that is the basis for all my movement on a pole, i can relate each move back to a dance move.
I also like making costumes and I love diner and movies at friends’ houses, i’m not big on going out.
Can’t live without?
Fun things to do each day, and all my wonderful friends and family
Growing up I wanted to be a…..
dancer. Particularly the Little Mermaid at Disneyland. I’ve auditioned so many times, but i’m not even tall enough to get to the 2nd round. She flies through the air in the Disney show, so i took up pole to help with my “flying skills.”
Favourite things of all time:
Movie: Center Stage…still
TV Show: How i Met You Mother
Musician: New artists that keep pop evolving, like Lady gaga
Song: So many to choose from!
Book: I just read Twilight for the 4th time. Maybe not my fave, but the one ive read the most!
Magazine: I dont really read magazines anymore.
Designer: Krysel from MPDS would love to think she’s rubbed off on me enough for me to say “Dolce and Gabanna”, and Shimmy from PDA would love me to say “Supre”…i’m torn! haha
Thanks Amber for the interview. Love your performances!!!
