For more than seven years,
performer LauraLynn Featherpistol tried every dance and dancelike performance technique she could get her hands on?from kung fu to ballet, lyra aerial performance, and trapeze. Those influences are apparent in her pole-dance work today, in which she incorporates aerial movement and dance into each of her alluring, acrobatic routines. She's used her portable pole to perform at festivals, theatrical showcases, and
in venues ranging from museum galleries to high-tech stages.
But her creative drive also compels her to do more than just perform: at Featherpistol Fitness, she passes on her knowledge of fluid, expressive movement to her students in
pole fitness, aerial dance classes, and in the way she reads the newspaper.
