Shannyn Leonie Performing Heartburn by Wafia
Shannyn has been pole dancing since 2010
Why did you start pole dancing? My friend was doing classes and asked me to go along, I was hooked after the first class!
Where do you want to take it? I want to take it as far as it can go, I love pole and am finally in a place in life where I am ready to push myself as hard as I can.
Why did you choose the song? The song Heartburn by Wafia inspired me because I just loved it when I first heard it, it gave me goosebumps. I like to put what I feel into my performances and at that point in time I was a bit emo coming up to VPC hahaha
What are your motivations when poling? For years doing comps has been a big mental battle, I always get terrified before I perform anywhere whether its a week 8 demo, performance night or full blown theatre comp. But it makes me feel alive thats why Im addicted to it. I like connecting with the audience because I want them to feel the show and get a kick out of it, whatever emotion/story it is.
