All my life I admired dancers and performers, but I was never able to do anything in that field. My ballet, dance and gymnastics teachers had no patience to deal with someone not coordinated and I grew up thinking that I would never be good for anything physical. About a year ago I thought it would be interesting to take pole dancing lessons and I heard about Pole Dance Miami because of Groupon. I took the classes I bought and I ended up liking it a lot. After that I didn’t have the time to go back until this year’s February. I have been going to the studio for nearly 3 months now, about 4 times a week and it has done wonders on me. My very first day I could barely lift one foot of the ground, my arms were extremely weak and while trying to do basic spins I literally landed on my butt. I get bruises all over my body, my muscles are sore, I fell with my heels a couple of times and bumped my toe against the pole and yes it all hurts many times, but I don’t think I have ever loved a physical activity this much in my entire life. I love spending my time at the studio not only because of the classes, but the company is great. All the instructors are sweethearts and very helpful. Specially Ashley, with whom I take most of my classes, many times she has no mercy with me and I love it because she pushes me to do better every time. Pole Dance Miami is like another sisterhood and a family. Everyone is really nice and the other students are very friendly too you can share experiences, tips and we encourage each other a lot and celebrate when we can finally get a move right. I have no words to describe how happy it makes me to be in Pole Dance Miami and how I admire the instructors, literally is always a good time! I feel it helped my mood and self-esteem in many ways, I feel better about myself and my body. I cannot thank enough Ashley D, Keisha, Gwendy and Yazzy for all their help and patience with me, love you! I never thought I would be able to do half of the things I do now. I still have a long way to go, but I am super down to take the challenge. Just like the bumper sticker they have says, pole dancing is addictive!!
