SF Pole & Dance #2: Kissy

Run Time 1.27

SOMA Sapiens is a series of ongoing short films by Grant Thompson in partnership with SOMA West Community Benefit District that offers a glimpse into the lives of people in the South of Market neighborhood in San Francisco. We aim to celebrate and uplift the stories of the individuals that make this large and diverse neighborhood into a vibrant community.

By stepping through the doors at a Pole & Dance studio you aren’t just taking a fitness class, you are joining a community. As students, they grow together – uplifting each other with encouragement and unconditional support. They practice their art according to five essential values: Community, Truth, Progression, Individualism, and Play.

The folks at SF Pole and Dance were so fascinating we needed to do two episodes! Revisit our first video here>> Join former student-turned-instructor, Kissy, as she shows off her amazing skill and opens up about pole has transformed her self-confidence.
