I pray that I am a reflection of joy, of love… all that is good in our world


Ashley Wright has been pole dancing for eight years. When she became pregnant with her daughter Shannon four years ago, she performed for the first time with her unborn baby at six months gestation.

After Shannon was born, Wright started doing a few moves with her baby when she was about 1-year-old. “I didn’t start climbing up the pole with her (in a carrier), until she was one or a little closer to two years of age,” she told The Huffington Post. “There are moments in which she would rather spin around with me, than to sit on the floor and do something else. And I, as her mother, am completely okay with having to adjust my pole practice to have her on me.”
