Strip Down, Rise Up

Patty’s journey with Pole Dancing began in 2009 when she first walked into the S Factor Studios in Los Angeles, CA.  Pole Dancing For Consciousness™ was born from her love of S Factor’s Feminine Movement Practice, her love of healing and working with bodies.

Patty was honored to be a part of the Netflix Documentary Strip Down, Rise Up directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Michele Ohayon.

The feature documentary follows women of all walks of life, all ages and ethnic backgrounds, as they shed trauma, body image shame, sexual abuse and other issues locked in their bodies, and embark on a journey to reclaim themselves. The film also gives a rare window into the world of Pole artistry and expression.
