My Body Shop is one of my favorite places to pole for several reasons. First, the location is convenient and there’s always ample parking. Second, the staff is knowledgeable and hands-on in a way that supports and challenges me as I pick up new moves on my pole journey. So far I’ve trained with Colleen and Curvy, and both are fun, experienced instructors. Aside from the wide range of classes they offer, what I also enjoy about the studio is the layout of the space itself—it’s clean, has high ceilings, and wall-to-wall mirrors. I highly recommend it.
A few years ago I bought six pole dancing classes as a joke. I thought it would be cool to learn a few tricks and tell the story about “that one time I took pole dancing classes”. I was under the mistaken impression that it would be fun and super easy but I was only right on one account! I like to joke and say I have ADD when it comes to exercise. Eventually classes get boring and machines get tedious so I was always looking for something new. Pole dancing provided both the challenge and versatility that I was looking for. Three years later I'm still learning and still falling but I love every minute of it! Now I'm instructing and being able to pass on what I've learned to other women feels amazing. I try to let them all know that everyone has to start somewhere and most of us look silly and/or fall down the first time we try it out, but the most important thing is to get back up stick to it!
