DANGEROUS CURVES POLE CAMP
October 6 - 8, 2018
Hosted at IncrediPole
145 Java Street, Brooklyn, NY
DC Camp is the only pole camp dedicated to plus size dancers. Both camp instructors -- Roz The Diva and Devon Williams -- are plus size athletes and know the struggle. Embarrassed to be the big kid in class? So were we. Boobs getting in the way? So do ours. Can’t hoist your ass upside down? Neither could we (but you will soon!). Do your thighs proudly resemble tree trunks? * Drops mic and twerks *
Head Divas in CHarge: Roz the Diva and Devon Williams
You already know me, ROZ, cause you're on my damn website. If you need a refresher, peep the video to the top left. Hi Beyonce.
DEVON WILLIAMS started pole dancing in 2011, and began teaching pole dancing in April 2013. Her life hasn't been the same since! She expanded her teaching ability by completing Fly Gym Instructor Certification (November 2015); Transcend Aerial Yoga Teacher Training (May 2016), and Liquid Motion 1.0 Instructor Certification (February 2018).
This sport has really allowed her to push beyond her comfort zone and competed in several competitions: 2012 Dangerous Curves Plus Size Competition; Champion - 2012 Ms. Head Over Heels, Basic Division; 3rd Place - 2013 Dangerous Curves Plus Size Competition; 3rd Place - 2015 Atlantic Pole Championship Level 3 Senior Entertainment, 2016 - Atlantic Pole Championship Level 3 Senior Entertainment; 2018 - Atlantic Pole Championship Junior/Senior Floorwork & Low Flow.
Devon wanted to expand her impact on the pole and aerial community and opened Pole Pressure Woodbridge in January 2015. In February 2017 Devon took ownership of Pole Pressure DC and became the Chief Executive Officer of the Pole Pressure brand. Although a busy studio owner, Devon will always have the heart and drive of an eager student.
WHAT IS PLUS SIZE?
Generally, someone is considered plus size when they wear a woman’s 14+, or men’s XL+. If you fall outside these parameters but still identify as plus size, join us!

There’s so much beauty in spins on a static pole . . . if you know how to use it. This workshop teaches you how to harness your own power -- the power in that ass, specifically -- to create momentum. We’ll start with classic spins from your pole childhood, then get a lil’ funkier.
3:15 - 4:45 PM
Learn a fun and empowering routine that’ll get your choreography juices flowing! Learn how to let go and just let the music and movement take over.
3:15 - 4:45 PM
Hauling your ass into the air is one of the most difficult and sought after skills to master when you start pole dancing. This workshop introduces inverting to students who've never done them. We'll have extra spotters on hand to make sure er'rybody stays safe!
5:00 - 6:30 PM
Explore creative across the floor movement that includes choreography, rolls, shoulder stands, and floor ayeshas. Learn how to move effortlessly from one pole to the next without ever leaving the floor.

Take a break from herculean tricks and work on building your pole persona. Travel beyond your comfort zone and learn how to intoxicate the masses with your personal style.
