It’s finally July, which means High Priestess is getting ready for our first ever Summer Showcase. This showcase (happening on July 30th, tell your friends!) is the first opportunity for many of our students to show off what they’ve been learning and practicing since we’ve opened our doors. Of course, as with all new things, there’s been a lot of anxiety in the studio from everyone involved. Let’s try to soothe those nerves, shall we?
For most of the year, I’d swear to anyone that my favorite season is fall. Cool autumn air is a relief from harsh summer humidity.
When you think about pole dance, what comes to mind? If you’re like most people, you probably think “sexy,” “risqué,” or “stripper.” And it’s very (unfortunately) possible you might have heard these things with a negative connotation. These things could have even stopped you from taking your first pole class, worried about what others may say or think about you. You might have even felt that it’s inappropriate to be sexy in front of others.
I’ve been thinking about confidence a lot lately. I kinda have to now; one of my jobs as an instructor is to empower my students to feel comfortable in their bodies, especially when confronting the uncomfortable. Sometimes “the uncomfortable” is a challenging move, sometimes it’s just joining a class.
