13 Things EVERY Pole dancer Can Relate To...

Posted on May 11 2017

1) That sinking feeling when your teacher says "now on your other side"



2) Being comfortable not wearing much clothing, and being surrounded by everyone else wearing not much clothing.


3) Before pole dancing you were unaware you had a 'good' and 'bad' flexibility and strength 'side' of your body!


4) Getting a Pole trick, taking a picture, never doing move again. 


5) Being irrationally irritated by that one naturally super flexible person in class.

6) Callouses.

7) Pointing your Toes... all the time. Yep, your instructor has drummed it into your head, and now a flexed foot is a big no-no. You find yourself pointing them, even during Missionary Position.

8) Getting stuck in all the sports bras, and tight tops. Damn those lats.


9) For once not minding the commute home from pole class, while you splice, cut and analyse your pics and vids for Instagram (or when you crash on the sofa after driving home).  


10) Having a great community around you that gives you the warm and fuzzies.


11) Struggling to not talk about pole, or have a conversation with non-pole friends. 


12) Eyeing up every bus/train/street pole and thinking 'oh the things I could do to you'. 


13) When Instagram changed videos from 15 seconds to 60 seconds...

    All of them are spot on….. the ones for me that really stand out are Numbers 1, 4, 7 and 10. We always do both sides and I dread my weaker side, but it is so cool when you find a move you can do better on your weaker side!! Nemisis moves are ones I like to get a picture of quick and then forget about them, cross ankle release being one that scares me the most!!! 7, pointing toes, was terrible when I started 2 years ok, but they still manage to mutate when I am straining and moving, so in a pose they seem to be ok… and lastly pole community, my school Pole Place Horsham has the most amazing community. But also to competitions Ive been to watch everyone is just so supportive of one another. It’s nice.
