Be careful with your words: The Pole Dancing Bloggers have a bloghop right now where everyone writes on one topic. January's topic is this - "things not to say to beginners". The posts have been amazing to read. It brings up an important point about how we speak to our students. It's so easy to say something careless, that we don't even realise upsets or demotivates our students. Here are some examples from the bloghop:
- Pole Geek: "So you JUST ...invert/thread your leg though/flip yourself/go into a split!"
- Apolemorphic: "Just be sexy!!"
- NinaReed: "Oh this thing? It's sooo easy!"
- Kiki'sPoleBlog: "Maybe pole isn't for you.."
