I honestly don’t remember how I came up with the idea to learn pole dancing this summer. All I remember is knowing that I needed to exercise because I felt heavy and slow and tired easily. Running bored me and swimming meant needing to have easy access to a pool. Yoga was great but the studio near my house closed down. I needed something different, something fun, something challenging, and something I needed to get out of the house to do. Enter pole dancing. Enter the Polecats.
