In happier news, after teaching a pole party last night, several of the girls asked me what kind of dance background I had. After seeing me perform they seemed to assume I must have some formal dance training because they said I was graceful like a dancer. They were quite surprised to find that I had no background in dancing (other than go-go dancing) before learning to pole dance. And needless to say, I AM SUPER FLATTERED! I might still be glowing from those compliments last night.
Tonight is a 2-hour pole workshop with an instructor visiting from Las Vegas. It's for intermediate and advanced dancers and I have no idea what to expect. But the workshop goes until 9pm and I expect I may be too tired and sore afterward to go out. So it's going to be a staying in night tonight.
