Took my first class at SOUL last night with Kiera, Soul Pole After Dark and could not have had a better time! I've taken pole classes in the past, I prefer actual dance classes than ones that are focused on tricks (though I plan on taking an Intro to Pole class ASAP!). Some places I've been seem a little more exclusive and it's hard to connect with classmates and the instructor which is something that's very important for me in such an intimate setting where you really need to be comfortable. Kiera and the other members of the class couldn't have been more welcoming and Flynn made sure to tell me about the studio and show me around to get me well acquainted. I hope to become a regular at SOUL and am so glad I finally signed up for a class. Looking forward to more!!!
