Online pole dancing lessons...wow! With technology now, it is possible to get a degree from home, talk to friends on the other side of the world and...or learn how to pole dance!
Taking online pole dancing lessons is a good option for many reasons.
Check out each site carefully; look for the following:
There are quite a few sites that offer the online pole dancing lessons option of learning from home. Here are a few of them:
One of the sites that I have used is Studio Veena's website where there is a whole curriculum to learn from and you can go back again and again and review and pause and start all over. Another reason why I like Veena is because of the clarity and simplicity with which she teaches and illustrates; no detail is left out and I find that using her classes on her site are almost as good as being with an instructor!
You can get feedback from her and other dancers directly by posting your videos for feedback and every Friday night there is a chat where you can chime in with a webcam or just chatting. There are several on-going forums where you can post your questions, too.
