From a dancer’s point of view, one should not be encapsulated in one dance form or genre or movement. Learning from different people with different skills allows you to grow, fly, and spread your wings. From an instructor’s point of view – to be the best instructor that you can be, you have to offer and expose your students to a variety of moves and styles, in order for them to find their own.
In SA, we have limited opportunities to get to learn from other local pole instructors or from international Pole Stars, who travel the world and get invited into all kinds of studios with all kinds of students.. with all kinds of abilities and even in some cases inabilities. It is them who keep us connected on a more personal level than FB, about what is out there and what is happening in the pole world.. and I am not just talking about moves, and competitions, but the latest in gear and grip, and yes food 🙂
They give up their muggle jobs, valuable time with their families, their own training time to spread some pole love and help us become better artists and athletes… and beings with superhuman abilities… so we love supporting them, and home them and feed them, and soak up every bit of advice with dumbo ears!
