I am not the type of person who has hobbies, unless you consider binge drinking or planning parties a hobby, if not than I have no hobbies. So when friends of mine recently posted photos of them at pole dancing classes, I thought "this is it!". My bestie Alia and I signed up and started classes three weeks ago and I LOVEE IT.
I am going to Suzie Q Pole Studio, the term is 8 weeks and what I especially like is that they teach you tricks right away, from your very first lesson you are spinning on the pole like a pro (pro meaning professional ;)).
Okay, so I can't quite do this trick as yet, but I can spin forwards and backwards, in three different styles...
This is a Cleopatra and I instructor told us "we are not strippers, so when your knees are apart, your ankles are together"
I can also sit on a pole and stand on a pole.
This move BURNS your inner thigh, like chaffing.
Alia and I can also twirl together at the same time on a pole. It looks a little like the one below, but our legs are intertwined.
Pole dancing, in addition to being fun is also a super awesome workout. I don't always feel the pain at the time, but two days later you will see me wincing in pain like a little baby. I also have bruises in places that make it look like I should be on an episode of SVU.hahaha
I really hope I stick to this, I really like it and i'm sure in the long run A will like it too hahahaha.
I will try and take some photos of us in action before the end of the term.
Have any of you tried pole dancing before? Did you like it?
