Should I try a pole class?

Should I try a pole class?

YES! The answer is yes! I'm betting that you aren't really asking if you should, you're really just seeking affirmation. Because let's be honest, there's a bit of a stigma attached to this ever popular fitness class.

What would people say if they knew you were dancing around a vertical piece of chrome plated steel in a pair of teeny tiny shorts? What would they say if they saw you lifting your own weight, climbing 13 feet, flipping and hanging upside down. What would they say about how radiant, strong and confident you are? Is what they might say more important than what you might feel? You see where I'm going with this?

Pole dancing/fitness is what you make it. Just like finding the right yoga class/instructor you'll want to find a class that inspires you. Every instructor has their own unique style and way of teaching so try a few. Your first class will be clumsy, you'll feel awkward and you WILL be a hot mess. But, if you leave that class smiling, laughing and wanting to do it again then trying a pole class was absolutely the right choice.

So stop seeking affirmation and just GO FOR IT!

KATIE About me: I'm Katie and I'm 24. I've been a pole student at Twisted Bodies for about seven months and I work the front desk in the mornings and do whatever else might be needed around the studio! I love all styles of dance, baking, tattoos, the Denton Square, and most of all Twisted Bodies. You can usually find me drinking too much coffee at the front desk in the morning or and I always have extra dry hands if you need some in class! What was your first experience at Twisted Bodies? A level one pole class with Katie Deering. I originally came to Twisted Bodies with my heart set on becoming an Aerial Silks master, but I fell in love with pole and have stuck with it ever since! Have you always been involved in dance and fitness? I've always been involved in classical dance classes, but I really became interesting in the fitness aspect of it when I decided to become a Zumba instructor. When and how did you decide you wanted to work at
