Week 35: Pole Dancing with Nicole the Pole
“What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?” Erin Hanson
What did I do:
Can you believe in my 35 years on this planet, I have never been to one bachelorette, one birthday party or one girls night out that involved pole dancing? I know, I can't believe it either. A friend recently recommended I give pole dancing a try. After much debate and negotiating with myself, I said yes!
Who was with me:
I decided to go with a private lesson with just a few of my girlfriends versus a public class. Nicole was a fantastic instructor. She really loves what she does and knows how to teach it. Best of all, she is a girl's girl with a passion to empower women. What's not to love? If you are looking to learn a few tricks on the pole or want to truly master this art, give Nicole the Pole a call.
What did I learn:
You'll see in this week's episode, we learned a few basic moves and three distinct turns on the pole. Let me tell you, being sexy on that pole (or on the floor) is not easy. And it takes so much strength and control to make it all look effortless. You really have to commit.
Would I do this again:
Yes, I will definitely take pole dancing classes again. I really liked the private class setting and Nicole's teaching style. I want to fine tune my feminine energy, let go of inhibitions and really go for it. I think I held back a bit this last round since we were shooting an episode that my parents might potentially see!
