New Richland Dance Studio Opening Soon Promises to Empower Women
There's a new business opening its doors soon in Richland.
Wonderland Pole & Dance is approximately 4-6 weeks away from opening.
Owner Lindsey Ross, of Tri-Cities, believes strongly in finding a safe place for all women. According to her Facebook profile, she's:
Just a girl who found herself on a pole & dreamed of a studio she'd never have to leave, so she built 1.
The mom of 4 credits the Covid-19 Pandemic for giving her the idea to open Wonderland Pole & Dance. Her lifelong dream is coming to fruition. Ross moved to Tri-Cities from DC. She's originally from Texas, and with the soon-to-come opening of her dance studio, Tri-Cities is now HOME.
What about the term "Stripper Pole?"
At Wonderland Pole & Dance, they're "vertical gymnasts and changing the narrative of pole dancing." Lindsey stresses that the classes are, "wonderful for your entire body, whether you're into cross-training or want to strengthen your core." Ross has a pole in her kitchen. (See above) Talk about a topic of conversation, and it's definitely different.
