Pretoria-The pair of Sonja Keil and Charlotte Ann Taylor from Swakopmund took part in the Pole Dance Competition, Pole Art SA, in Pretoria recently – the first-ever Namibians to launch an assault on this particular new sporting discipline.
The Namibians claimed first spot in the doubles division. Kell opened her studio in September last year in the coastal town of Swakopmund and started taking Taylor through the ropes to become her doubles pole dance partner.
The pair performed at the Carnival of flames last December and were invited to dance at the WIKA this year, whilst performing regularly at corporate events in Windhoek and Swakopmund.
