Sure, It might not have been the most graceful dance routine, but Erickson still loved every second of it - and it's easy to see why.
"Absolutely made my week!!" she wrote.
Fortunately, Erickson had the good sense to give the koala plenty of space to practice her new craft - and knew what to do next. She called a local animal rescue group, which escorted the little aspiring pole dancer back outside.
Brief as the encounter may have been, not only did it boost Erickson's mood, but it left her with a memory to cherish for a lifetime:
"I will never forget this day."
