As a plus-sized woman, Ms Jaslyn Tan was originally hesitant to learn pole dancing. 

The 28-year-old preschool teacher (@risingqsilence on Instagram) started attending classes at Slap Dance Studio only after her colleagues encouraged her to give it a try. And she’s since fallen in love with the sport. 

After two years of hard work, Ms Tan is now able to twirl around the pole gracefully and nail the gravity-defying inverts effortlessly. She’s also confident enough to post her pole dance routines online, never mind the hate comments that might come her way. 

How did she manage to overcome her self-doubts and achieve her fitness goals? Find out more in this video!
