Nov. 3rd 2013 – 4 a.m.
There are moments while watching a pole dance competition where these thoughts go through my mind. Eventually though, I’ll snap back to reality and realize that none of those hard moves I see onstage were achieved instantaneously. It just takes consistent practice. (Something I haven’t done this year. Long story.)
I admire my friends and readers who compete. I see the long hours they put into their training and admire them for it! I’m always wondering to myself if I should put in more time into becoming better at pole. Deep down, I know I should! If not to complete then to have a larger dance “vocabulary.”
As I write this, I plan to be at the California Pole Dance Championships later today. Three years ago, I watched competitive pole dancing for the first time at this event. Natasha Wang had won that year and I was mesmerized. 😀 And now, I’ll have a table for Pole Dancing Adventures and I can’t wait to see everyone perform.
And I’ll try my best to keep self-depreciating thoughts at bay!
