My experiences of pole dancing previously have never been a sober affair. They usually involved 3am shimmering and attempting to get my whole body up on a pole, while I failed miserably and made friends with the floor in a drunken stupor!
And before you ask I didn’t attempt anything like what you can see in the picture. This would of course ended in me landing straight on my head. But they didn’t ease you into it either – the first part was a movement where you had to literally swing round the pole, with your legs either side – I still have the bruises to prove that I gave it a go.
In all I realised you had to be pretty strong to be good at pole dancing – have a good core and don’t mind bruising your legs. It really is an alternative exercise routine – which you realise is over very quickly because, unlike a gym routine, you’re having fun.
Now…..I just can’t wait to try it out on the next unexpected club that I go to – 3am pole dancing will never be the same again!
