I Am New – What Do I Do?

We get it.   You’re new, and you haven’t got a clue.

You don’t know what to wear, what to bring, where to park, how to act, or what to say – and that’s O.K.

‘How to’ – Be late for pole class & our policies on it all.

I came across this article the other day, which – via hilarious stick men drawings, explains the inner workings of what goes on inside the brain of a person who is chronically late (hands up me).

HOW TO: Treat a Pole Bruise

Bruises, Pole Kisses – come hand in hand with pole, most especially when your a total newbie.  I firmly believe that if you ain’t bruising, you ain’t doing it right!

And if you do get some good ones, then we should wear them like a badge of honor as they represent achievement.
