In Bed with Sally Ann Giles

I first saw Sally Ann at the Pole Diva’s competition in 2007, I was actually there to support another brilliant pole dancer, whome I was convinced had won the competition, but then SHE seemed to just come out of nowhere and was so brilliant she literally stunned the crowd and claimed the title.  [quote float=”left”]I was curious about this random ‘mystery woman’ and wanted to find out more.  As I completed this interview, ‘mystery woman’ ended up becoming the pole dancer that I most respect in all the world.[/quote]
