The first time I ever taught a group was just about a year ago, at a party, with just one pole. But other than that, I'm spoiled and used to doing groups in my own studio with 3 poles. Now I'm actually nervous doing a home party with just one pole. I had to really simplify my lesson plan since girls can only go one at a time, they need to be able to learn a little bit faster than when they could go three at a time (in order to fit the party in just 2 hours). The good news is, this is going to push me past my nervousness and make home pole parties an option for me in the future. Yay!
Tomorrow I'm going to try and fit in some errand running (I desperately need an organizer for my business and some supplies for the party), a matinee with friends, and then practicing the portable pole assembly and heading off to the party. The busy day will probably go straight from 9:00am to midnight, then I collapse.
