OK, so if you blinked you would have missed Alesia Vazmitsel pole dancing on Britain's Got Talent last Saturday. ITV were not overly generous in the air time that they gave to Aleisa but at least she got through to the live auditions which means we get to see much more of her.
For those of you who don't know who Alesia is then let me fill you in; Alesia arrived onto the pole dancing scene with a bang when she entered and won Miss Pole Dance UK 2008. I had the pleasure of performing alongside her as I had also entered the competition that year (unfortunately this was the year when I fell off the pole!). Here is a brief biog for Alesia courtesy of Pole Passion;
"Alesia started ballet dancing at the age of four. From age 11 Alesia trained at a circus school and then worked in the National Circus of Belarus as a gymnast and dancer. Alesia has been pole dancing since 1997, she is a mesmerising performer and is very inspiring to watch........Her hobbies include various sports and travelling, she also holds a Bsc in Business Administration."
Alesia is a beautiful dancer and her grace and flexibility will surely demonstrate to the mainstream TV audience that pole dancing does not have to be sleazy, and, is most definitely an art from when it is performed so beautifully.

Don't forget to tune into Alesia's live performance on Friday 4th June between 7.30 and 8.30pm.
