What advice would you give to someone who wants to try pole dancing?
Go for it! Just realize it may not be for you. Like any other sport, you don't know if you'll love it without giving it a shot first. But also realize that the style of one studio differs greatly from the style of another. If you're really serious about it, check out all the studios in your area and pick the one you like the best -- the atmosphere, the other girls, the instructors, the poles themselves, etc.
