5. Be the swotty student
Remember at school when it wasn’t cool to be the class swot who listened to every word the teacher said? Now is the time to BE THAT STUDENT! Your instructor is filled with years of knowledge and experience, and is sharing it all with you. If you don’t listen first time around, he or she may repeat it for you but his or her attention may well be on spotting other students. Save conversations and text messages for later. Class is the time to listen. You can even bring teacher an apple if you like (I prefer vodka and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for extra instructor love)However, that’s not to say you can’t…
6. Ask questions
If you try something once in class but didn’t manage it, have another look at it and try it again. If you CAN do something, don’t just stand there. Do it again! And again. And again. Make it better, make it smoother, make it prettier. Find another way into it, and out of it. Pole classes aren’t cheap, so don’t waste a moment of your precious pole time when you could be being a badass.
8. Remember it’s your journey
This is your journey. This is not a race. Everyone has their own pace, strengths and weaknesses, and it doesn’t matter where you are, what matters is that you are enjoying it and feeling good. And it goes without saying, the praise and support from your fellow students makes even the harshest pole burn feel better.
