  • well hello there! new from london

    Hi! My name is Lily and I’m from london, uk. Just graduated from uni in philosophy! I have a small amount of dance experience, but new to pole dancing.
    I think girls who do it look amazing and…having had a pole in my room for the past couple of weeks and not knowing what the bloody hell to do with it (short of trying to spin around and falling in an ungainly heap on the floor) has given me sooo much respect for you lot! How DO you manage it??
    I’ve bought a monthly membership for veenas lessons now, gonna start tonight so hopefully will improve with them (before I was just following vague, blurry youtube vids)
    Not really sure how this works, are we supposed to post videos of what we do and how we progress? I’m sure I’ll work it out anyway.
    Nice to meet you all!

    This site can be what you make of it. Some post progress videos, some just use the forum or blogs for ideas/help/support, many do the chat on fridays (I think that’s when it is, I always forget when it is going on), and many do Veena’s lessons. In general there is no set norm of what to do, at the most basic level it is support and be supported by your fellow polers.

    Hi Lily
    Welcome! Yay another London based StudioVeena member!

    I’m sure you’ll enjoy pole dancing
    This is a very helpful community, any question you have, just shoot. These girls (and guys) have been so helpful.

    Welcome! London was my favourite city when I was a kid. We lived in Germany and took fairly regular flights over. I was convinced that Paddington Bear lived in the tube station for which he was named
    Seriously, the lessons here are excellent. I’ve picked up moves that I couldn’t achieve from other instruction.
    A philosophy grad, eh? Congratulations, that’s a tough program. I’m a Comparative Literature, Modern Languages grad. One of our profs studied under Derrida, so we couldn’t get away with any kind of b.s.!
    Happy poling~

    Thank you for the welcome everyone!

    Hipshaker: where about in london you based?? I’m south east, its so funny because when you live in London you always thinkits a big enough city to be anonymous but I BET we share about one mutual friend on facebook/myspace or the like….the world is stupidly small sometimes it never actually ceases to surprise me.

    poleophile: Paddington Bear DOES live at the tube station. He just keeps a low profile as hes so famous and all. The only place in Germany Ive ever been is Berlin but I really loved it there, such a cool city. Hehe studied under Derrida thats pretty amazing.

    Sissybuns: Thank you my dear. I actually have posted a video, I did it this morning…its not very good, but I enjoyed it! sadly being a philosophy graduate hasnt led on to too many job oppertunities which leaves me with plenty of time at homewith my pole. And camera. So hopefully Ill improve.

    Maddie28uk:Thanks hun! How long have you been dancing for?

    Hey Halfjack!
    I’m in Hammersmith / Fulham but work in Soho Yeah you never know could have some mutual friends – London can seem small at times – unless you’re on the tube!

    Do Pole at TheThirdSpace gym in Soho and going to Miss Pole UK at the Scala on Sunday, really looking forward to it!
