I used to be in awe of my girl friends who could jump up on a pole, spin around, go upside down and everything else you could do on a pole, I know and have worked with a lot of strippers and their moves are very hardcore and amazing! I could do the basics and dance around it but was too scared to do what they did, I hate hurting myself and was especially scared of falling and breaking something.
One day while surfing the net and watching New Zealand Pole Dancing champions and looking up simple tutorials on youtube I decided to get my own pole. Why did I get my own pole?
- I am a shy person, despite doing bikini competitions on stage infront of hundreds of people and promo work, t.v etc I am a really shy person and hate doing things in front of other people, strange I know.
- The convenience, don’t have to drive anywhere, waste petrol or get dressed up to go outside.
- I could do private lessons for my man hehe.
In 2-3 weeks I was going upside down, doing pinwheels, climbing it and basically got really acquainted with the pole. You would have thought I worked in a strip club! Doing the first tutorial to go upside down was quite exhilarating as I was still scared but I took a deep breath, thought to myself to just let go of all gravity and scariness and go for it and guess what, it works! When you just let go of all the frustration, shyness and scared-ness it’s amazing what you can do with yourself and your body.
Not only that, my legs and butt got very toned and for the first time in my life I love my butt! I have also come to train a few girls that I used to work with and know, taught them what to do and got them to a start off. Pole dancing I used to associate with stripping when I was younger but now I am older and slightly wiser it is a very great exercise and sport. Ladies out there, all I can say is you will love it, you become more flexible, more confident, more sexy, more open minded and it’s a great builder towards learning other dances as well.
So why wait until tomorrow or a special occasion to try it, do it today! You won’t regret it and you will be feeling better about yourself in no time which will also make your man want you more when he can see just how much confidence you are oozing from that toned, sexilicious body you will be strutting around.
