The Pole Dancing Bloggers Association has a Photo-a-week challenge and this week it’s Pole Bag.
One of these things is not like the others….
Most polers don’t use knee pads – I don’t care. I love mine and I never worry about my knees! I really want to learn to climb in them but I know that’ll just take some effort. Strength wraps are the bomb – I don’t tweak my wrists! Dew point for when I my skin is paper-dry. And here’s the odd part – ear plugs. My studio has a fabulous sound system and when I’m dancing it can’t be loud enough. But when I’m watching there are times – in certain songs and in certain pitches – where it really hurts my ears. My instructor suggested ear plugs and they’re PERFECT! I get to really enjoy the music still (because it’s loud as hell) without feeling assaulted. Of course I don’t wear them for most of class, only when I’m sitting still and witnessing my fellow dancers. Close observers will guess that I’m a barefoot dancer!
