Rafaela Montanaro - Brazil Group C
Rafaela Montanaro - Brazil
My sports career started before I was born: My mom and dad were both athletes and graduated on Physical Education College. I had no choice, before I knew I was inside the gym!
I started gymnastics by the age of 3. When I was 7 I had already an individual and team national titles. But that really wasn’t for me, and I quit when I was 12.
Then I studied Ballet, Jazz, and Modern dance. By the time I was 16 I started circus classes, and the next year, when I was 17 I was accepted in the “école nationale des arts du cirque” in Paris, where I studied for 1 and half year.
After coming back to Brazil I got in college to study Physical Education in 2005, and graduated in 2008. By the end of college I saw a video of Felix Cane on Miss Pole Dance Australia 2006, and fell in love with it! This was all I needed in one thing: sport, art, dance, acrobatics, and expression! And of course, so sexy! I wanted to learn but it was very hard to find a teacher around here. I only found a (decent) teacher in May 2009, her name is Sarita Papalardo.
Due to My sports/dance historic I developed very fast my pole skills. By September 2009 I won the Miss Pole Dance Brazil, and by October the Miss Pole Dance South America. Now After 1 and a half year of pole I’ll be sharing the stage with the girl who inspired me! It’ amazing for me!
