Soon I’ll have to pack my pole away in a storage unit for an indefinite period of time when I move. And since I don’t know when or how I’ll be able to take classes again, I’ll soon be an eager pole dance student without access to a pole. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed, and I hope I’ll find a way to keep practicing somehow. But in the meantime I’m going to focus on developing strength and flexibility so that whenever I get the opportunity to start again I’ll be ready to come back with a vengeance.
To that end, I recently purchased Cleo the Hurricane’s Rockin Legs N’ Abs DVD, which is scheduled for delivery tomorrow morning. And I’ll be starting the program about two minutes after it arrives. As you can see, I’m not flexible at all. Until recently I couldn’t even touch my toes, and it’s still a struggle. But I’m hoping with enough hard work I’ll eventually be limber enough to try some of those beautiful pole moves I can only dream of right now (hello, spatchcock!). I may not be able to progress as a pole dancer in the way that I’d like to, and certainly not as quickly as I would like to, but I’m determined to continue moving forward in whatever way I can.
