My NCPP 2014 routine was the very first routine that I built in collaboration with Sergia Louise Anderson, owner of The Vertitude in Los Angeles. I could go on about how and why Sergia is a visionary in the pole world but her success speaks for itself. In June 2014, I participated in the Vertitude Pole Camp where she taught us a condescend version of her routine building workshop. Here, I learned how to create a story and a character and how to put those elements above and beyond the tricks and pole moves that I had always exalted. This was the first time that the dance became important to me, and it's forever changed my movement and my process for creative expression. The song is called "Song for Zula" by Phosphorescent.
