I have recently had to opportunity through some truly amazing women to share my love of pole with others and hopefully help them to love it as much as I do.
Pole has helped me through some of the worst times in my life and I am honored to share it with others. I truly do not know if I would have made it through intact with out my pole family.
I seriously want to jump up and down with giddiness and joy.
What do I want pole students to get out of it?
Everyone is different, and that is awesome. Each of us moves our bodies differently and it is amazing, this is where the artistry of dance comes in. We could all be given four tricks to do and the same music to do them too and yet all look totally different.
Pole is a sport- but it is also an art. If you aren't into the acrobatic tricks-- that's fine there are endless things you can do. Walking can be amazing to watch- its all about artistry.
You may not get every trick. This is fine!! A lot of us have tricks we don't do for a lot of reasons. It doesn't make you less than anyone- it makes you--- you.
Love yourself and your body. Your body is part of you--- it is not *you*. Your body doesn't define you. I never got this until I was really involved with this physical sport-- ironic huh?
Be kind. Not everyone responds to tough love. I don't. I will get defensive and put up walls to keep people out. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
