There are a number of different types of pole dancing, but this is probably an easy one to grasp. Basically, it’s where you stand atop a pole and try to grab it. It’s a lot like hanging from a rope and falling into a giant pit of water. You’ll probably have a really bad time! I’ve fallen, gotten hurt, and it took me almost a year to get back to normal. For reference, see the image above.
What music do you listen to?
As a beginner, I’ve been mostly listening to “Suede” by Hozier and “The Way Home” by The Weeknd. I’ll also be experimenting with a small amount of trance music at the beginning. So far, I haven’t noticed any major problems with my dancing.
How many times do I have to change my wardrobe during the course of a pole-dancing weekend?
You don’t have to change your wardrobe until your pole goes home. You can change out of everything at the end of your workout, but I want to give you a warning: If you are going to dance for an extended time, you should buy clothes that will keep you warm, including jackets and winter pants. The pole must be warm enough not to rip or melt in the heat. Also, the poles that are going to be used for dancing must be well-made and sturdy enough to hold up to the heat. This is true from pole to pole, just look for the ones you are most likely to use in your training. If you can’t afford new clothes for each pole, you could buy clothes from the Pole Exchange.
Do you really make any money? Do you have a job that you need to pay taxes on?
I make all of my money from pole dancing. I work for the school that teaches pole dancing to prepubescent girls. This job means that I have to work at a store, and the rent there is very high. The pole classes are free and we pay for everything. For this job, I am also paid to have sex with men outside of school. This is considered a hobby by the school: People are not required to pay tax on it.
How do you sleep?
I stay up until 2:00 or 3, then get up and get ready to dance. I will take a nap in my bedroom. I am pretty good at sleeping, even my mom says so!
