Nicole “The Pole” Williams set the Internet a blaze when her audition video for Rihanna’s song “Pour It Up” went viral. Now, the pole dancing diva is dishing her dance secrets to only HipHollywood.
Obviously, Nicole has amazing skills on the pole but during our interview with her we learned a lot about the athletic performer. Ironically, she didn’t learn her moves in a strip club, she’s actually a personal trainer who, after learning a few tricks at a house party in 2007, bought a pole of her own and copied moves she saw on Youtube. The fitness buff also owns her own business, Allure Dance Studio, and teaches a bevy of classes every week. On top of that she also has a line of workout DVDs and plans to do more. Needless to say, Nicole “The Pole” is the truth!
Williams also dished on what is was like working with Rihanna. “I showed her a few spins and the spins that I showed her they actually featured them in the video…she did good!”
We couldn’t let Nicole leave without learning a few trick for ourselves. After the interview, HipHollywood correspondent Vanessa B, got a one-on-one lesson from the pole pro. Check out the full interview and learn a few beginners moves in the video below.
