She fell in love with pole dancing because it can be powerful, beautiful and artistic all at the same time. Beth loves any moves that show off her strength as she is a firm believer that strong is the new sexy! Figuring out new ways to link moves together is one of her favourite challenges as she is a confident freestyler, simply going where the music takes her.
