So then I started asking why are people so anti shoes in Europe?
Is it because they prefer to make it a sport, or gymnastic thing rather than a dance or even be associated with the clubs?
Okay yes they are generally more conservative, specially in Switzerland. I might have been a bit presumptuous to think I could just drop in and start off where I left it in Perth.
The other question is will this change how I feel about pole dance?
I am a seamstress/ designer of costumes and I have enjoyed the dressing up and wearing fun outfits to classes maybe a bit more than most. So loosing that simple little accessory the shoes could make it less dress up and fun.
I had my trial class and they were super nice and inviting, I could pretty much slot in and continue just bare feet. And I will do bare feet, but I might go down a few levels to get my footing with the German lingo and also the static moves. Its always good to polish up technique and now learn how my lines look without the pretties on the end of my feet. ;)
I am not giving up on the shoes never, but I will give myself the time to learn things both ways.
I would love to hear why people like shoes to pole dance with, and why not.
I think its a personal thing but its interesting to hear how others feel about it.
until next time
