Strang title, I know. But, for all of you who have never tried pole dancing you need to expand your horizons and give it a go! Women of color specifically tend to have issues with expressing their sexuality and sensual side in this fashion...but GET OVER IT CHICAS. Most pole dancing classes are for women only and most people who take the classes aren't professionals and are just looking to try something different. Hop on that pole...no one will think you're a freak or a hoe..I promise! You'll find muscles that you never knew you had!
In Chicago you can find classes at Crunch Fitness and Flirty Girl Fitness.
If you're outside of the Chicago area, do a quick Google Search for classes near you.
