As the story goes, in the late 1980s, when the New York City government tried to figure out a way to keep the city green, it was discovered that there was no real economic incentive to build the sort of physical barriers you need to protect pedestrians, cyclists and cars from cars, bicyclists, and trucks. That was when people started to think that this could be a fun way of doing things. A lot of people were interested in the technology and then a lot of people who were not so interested were going to the clubs and dancing together. Eventually things developed into what we have today, which is a very informal kind of community.
We have a community now that really is free, and everybody’s free to decide that they don’t want to be part of this. Everybody just goes and dances with each other, and that’s really what the idea is.
How has pole dancing changed in New York City over the years?
I think pole dance developed in the New York City of 1991 when we launched the first citywide dance program. It was very, very hard to find dancers at any given hour for the first few years. That was very hard to find because there are a lot more people now in the dance community, but the only way to find people for the time you have available to you is to make a lot of calls on the clubs and start talking to dancers and get them involved. It seems like a lot of people are really happy and interested. It’s not a very rigid system right now, you can go out tonight and dance with your own rules.
I think the main thing I’ve heard is people are not happy that they can’t walk into a club and just dance the way they want to. Some people might still like it because it’s the old school way of doing things. I would certainly be on the fence about that kind of thing. If you really want to do things the way people really like they’re going to have to find people to make that happen. That’s the only way to get it done.
What kind of feedback do you get from the crowd on dancing?
There is almost no feedback. I always feel a need to tell people what’s wrong with their way of doing things, so that they can take responsibility and change the way they do things. Sometimes that feedback comes through in the physical world. People don’t want to dance in the same direction we dance, so now when you dance that way, you really have to
