About Gemma Kowatch

I’m a 20 year old pole dancer, student, and knitter. I started dancing after a family friend went through a session and loved it. I tried pole once and was hooked! I had been working out in a gym for about 2 years prior to pole dancing.

I have scoliosis by my shoulder blades and was worried that the pole might aggravate it, but if anything, pole has healed my back.

Pole has given me so much confidence in myself, that when anyone starts talking about working out and how the gym isn’t working for them anymore, I immediately tell that person to try pole dancing. I think that every person (man or woman) should try pole dancing at least once.

The cool feeling of the chrome beneath my hand as I throw myself into a flying body spiral is one of the most amazing sensations in the world. Now that I’ve been dancing for a little while I’ve come to expect all the bruises and strange aches, but when I first started that was all new territory. I’m...
