  • 1hr lesson for my bday at Curvy Diva in Chicago?

    Posted by poledanceromance on April 28, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    It’s $85 for an hour. I crave instruction and reinforcement that there are actually other pole dancers in the world and I haven’t just imagined you all in my dreamland, cause I’ve never met another poler IRL yet. Anyone gone there? Know anyone awesome who works there? Should I not waste the money? I see they had Alethea for a workshop, I have to assume (hope) they’re legit.

    If I do get it, what should I expect? How best can I prepare for my first lesson ever?

    Sadly there’s no smiley for an eager beaver, so I’ll be an eager batman https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_batman.gif .

    Nah. 85 dollars is four classes! four classes instead! 4 hours of not being the only one the instructor is looking at and feeling weird because neither of you really wants to look the other in the eye, but somehow you feel as though you must.

    I saw the difference in price…problem is Chicago is like, home home, where my parents live. So I could come up to do a class, but I live/work/educate myself about 3 hours south of there, so I don’t think I could use all 4 before they expire in a month, plus I checked their lessons and you have to do one of their intro to pole classes before you can take any others. I totally understand that, as a studio that’s a must to protect themselves legally, but it would mean I would have to plan like 5 visits to Chicago in a month, spending 6 hours in the car round trip each time. Oh my, the gas cost… https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_confused.gif I really, really, REALLY wish they didn’t expire in a month, or I would totally buy myself the 4 lessons. It wouldn’t be a problem if I were local, but there’s just nothing around here literally at all. I’ve googled half to death. And I don’t have anywhere at my parents’ house to pole, either not enough space or suspended ceiling, so every time I’m home I have pole separation anxiety.

    I wish they’d make an exception for one broke student. 4 lessons would probably last me 2.5-3 months. I really wish I had the support and social interaction of a studio and classes to attend every once in a while without destroying my budget.

    Hi There,

    I manage the studio and am also an Instructor. What part of IL do you live in as I may know another studio not all of them show up in google. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

    The ladies at Curvy Diva are great. Traveled from WI and went to the Alethea workshop. Great studio as well. You’ll love it.

    How awesome of you to reply! I’m in Decatur, IL. It’s exactly halfway between Champaign and Springfield, with each being a manageable hour-ish away. If you know of anywhere in the area, I’m doing there tomorrow! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_lol.gif

    The responses about your studio have been so awesome and sincere, I will definitely have to figure some means of checking it out.

    I took the alethea workshop too and it is a nice studio! But I understand the time/money constraints so if you want to jam with me let me know next time you’re home https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif
