I’m here with the hubby for work and it’s my first time here, and his third.
In the past 24 hours or so since we got here I’ve had a mani, pedi, foot massage and eaten way too much. I also had 2 Krispy Cremes and an iced latte for breakfast today, heheh. (Oh, and some new friends were talking about bringing us to try a local pork dish that’s fried in pork oil… So much win!)
But that’s okay, cos tomorrow I am checking out not one, but two different pole studios in Manila! That’s the plan anyway!!
I’d already heard of Pole Cats and one of my instructors back home in Bobbi’s has taken classes there before. So I knew I definitely had to check them out while I’m here.
Then I Googled ‘pole dance Manila’ and found another studio called Pole Academy Philippines (PAP) which is located right near to the area I’m staying in.
So I contacted both studios via their Facebook page about taking a drop-in class and they responded positively. Pole Cats informed me that they don’t conduct classes in shoes, whereas PAP said to bring my heels along so I’m thinking they will probably have different teaching styles.
From looking at photos on their websites, I know they use different poles from Bobbi’s, as most studios do. Pole Cats said they teach on static pole and I suspect PAP probably does too.
I just hope their poles are 45mm and not 50mm ones because the last time I even touched a 50mm was almost 2 years ago and I know I’ll probably lose half of my strength just trying to grip my little hands around one!
I’m dropping in to a mixed level class at both studios and I honestly don’t know what to expect, but I’m totally looking forward to it. This will be my first overseas pole venture so wish me luck guys!
