PSO: When and where did you compete?
Chad Uyehara: 2021 Aries
PSO: What was your inspiration or story behind your piece?
Chad Uyehara: As a professional musician and music educator, I was first inspired by the music to create a piece that was dynamic, sassy, and fun. I also love upbeat, energetic music, and Little Mix's "Move" has always been a favorite song of mine. When thinking about the story I wanted to tell through the music, I knew I wanted to show how pole dancing has helped me get through the lock downs during COVID and how it has also become my primary form of exercise. I've been into weight lifting, triathlon, and marathon, but these sports leave very little room, at least in my opinion, for artistic expression. I'm happy to have found pole dance, a combination of sport and art, which activates, stimulates, and energizes my body, mind, and soul.
