“I can look at an audience and it has this look of being so well groomed or groomed in some way, and I can understand what they’re doing.
“I feel like I’m being a choreographer in this little performance and that feels very, very good.”
The former teacher said the act was very “feminine and fun”.
“The pole dancer is not necessarily being feminine, but she’s not being so masculine. It’s something that we can relate to,” she said.
Ms MacMillan is excited about the prospect of pole dancing developing into a full-time occupation.
“The reality is it’s not going to happen overnight. The people who are involved are the first generation,” she said.
“To see pole dancers as professionals, people who are being paid to do what they love doing and they’re still doing it on the weekend and not for money and it’s their choice, to come and feel secure in that is a really really powerful thing.
“There’s a lot of stigma that exists, but then I look at the way kids in particular and the way they do what they do and the way that’s the norm for it as a culture, it doesn’t feel weird at all.”
