The other motivation to take a business trip to London is the opportunity to take a class with Katie Coates, a world famous pole instructor there. I have basically had instruction at this point from the world's best pole dancers and instructors: Pantera, Sheila Kelly, Fawnia Monday-Deitrich, etc. The ONLY world famous instructor I have not studied with is Katie Coates in London. Once I have a few lessons with her, I can basically say on my website that I've been trained by all the world famous pole instructors. Is that worth the cost of a trip to London?? I mean maybe nobody really cares who I've studied with, maybe that's only a big deal to other pole dancers.
EDIT: I just checked, flights that time of year are $1,300. Holy cow, last time I flew to London it only cost me $350.
