“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others.  Unfold your own myth.” – Rumi

This week’s guest is Tausha Ostrander, producer of this year’s Dangerous Curves Plus Size Pole Dance competition.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Everything you want to know about plus size pole dance and Dangerous Curves
  • Why the world doesn’t end when you show skin as a plus size dancer
  • Why we need to move past “beauty” as a way to measure worth
  • Reappropriating the male gaze and celebrating ourselves with pole dance
