This course has helped me break down choreography in a way that feels manageable! Even though I had competed and performed before, I never seemed to figure out how to complete the process without stress. This course has helped me figure out ways to enjoy the experience of crafting a routine and has given me tools to manage the large task of creating a piece.
I came into pole with no dance or performance experience and this course helped me grow my flow so much. I have learned how to express myself better, build a piece, and it helped create community around something I found overwhelming and scary on my own.
