Pole Files Interview 5: Sasj Lee Pole Dancer

My next interview is with the highly talented Sasj Lee, amazing pole dancer and fashion designer. 

Lets hear what Sasj has to say.



How long have you been doing pole dancing?

I have been pole dancing for exactly 3 years. 

The moment you realised you love pole dancing?

I realized I loved pole dancing when nothing else was a priority. My friend had dragged me into a pole dance studio and I literally gasped. Girls in booty shorts and heels was not my idea of a work out. And look at me now. After that first class, I never missed one. And, I now have a walk-in closet dedicated to my pole shoes ONLY.


Describe your style.

 My style is still under development. I love dancing to rock music, pushing myself to MY physical limit, and the idea of attacking the pole; though, I've been told I move very slowly and gracefully. In the next year, as I explore and train in other avenues of dance, I will incorporate with pole; therefore further developing my style.


Favourite move?

At present, my favorite move is anything that causes me great pain the morning after, but takes the audience by storm. Any variation of a shoulder mount, twisted-grip, or suspension is just plain, wicked! And I simply adore spinning at 20mph on static pole. 

Tools of the trade, what can’t you live without when pole dancing?

Support from my comrades, music I can feel, and firm grip.


Any hobbies or passions outside of pole dancing?

In addition to pole dancing, my passion is fashion. I started my own line of women's swim wear; Sancia Rose (www.sanciarose.com). It is the best feeling to create from a single idea, and not only watch that creation grow before my very eyes, but enjoyed and appreciated by others.
My number one hobby is eating. I have a special relationship with food, especially Louisiana Crunch Cake. I also enjoy lying on the sand under the Malibu sun for hours, shopping, and more recently, yoga.


Can't live without?

I can't live without my sense of humor. I laugh more than some people care to understand. I laugh at myself with ease. My sense of humor has saved my life many times over.

Growing up I wanted to be a.....

Growing up, I either wanted to be a Solid Gold Dancer, or Psychologist. Go firgure.

Favourite things of all time:

Movie: Oh, please don't make me choose my favorite movie. I have too many. "Sense & Sensibility", "The Departed", "Apocalypto","Michael Jackson's, This Is It", and "Gladiator". Notice how completely different they are. Yes, I'm a Gemini. 

TV Show: My favorite TV shows are: "Rachel Zoe Project", "Flipping Out with Jeff Lewis", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", and "Real Housewives of Atlanta". You got your creativity, Sarcasm, and drama all on one network...almost. Reality TV puts a smile on my face, and I'm unashamed to admit it.

Musician: My favorite musician is Bob Marley. And no, not because I'm Jamaican. I can't choose a favorite song of Bob's. I love them all. One hell of a human being, clearly chosen to touch the world through music.

Song: I think we should live in a world where we don't have to choose, 'cause I also love all of these books: "Choosing Happiness-Live & Soul Essentials" by Stephanie Dowrick, "Boys Life" by Michael McCammon, and "No Less Than Greatness" by Mary Manin Morrissey. Spiritual growth rocks!

Magazine: Vogue. Bam!

Food: My favorite food is anything Jamaican. I also love Italian, Mexican, and Thai. I'm sure if they were all thrown together in a bathtub, I would be in my element.

Designer: Yay! I love and have a strong admiration for Valentino; a self-taught, ridiculously talented man. I also love Dior, Sass & Bide, Dsquared2, and Stella McCartney. 

The world of pole dancing has taken me on one hell of a ride. I've enjoyed every moment of it, including the wonderful opportunity to teach at Evolve Dance Studio in Los Angeles and exchange energy with my students. They are the best. I look forward to growing with this art form and challenging myself along the way.



It has been a great pleasure interviewing Sasj, she is a girl after my own heart with loves for pole and fashion!!!!
Thanks Sasj:)
