I'm always afraid the things I learn in pole dancing class will be gone the second I wake up the next morning. Be it due to exhaustion or just simple forgetfulness. I may not be able to record a video of every combo and move I learn, but I ALWAYS keep my journal and a pen next to my water bottle. After class, I'll sit aside and jot down notes.
Here are two pages from my first journal. I keep it dated to remember what I practiced and when. On the right is a combo I learned from Nadia Sharif. She told me to drop into a teddy from a Jade hold. Tons of fun!
Years later, the information has proved to be invaluable. Before a routine, I can read through my book and discover old moves that I can work into my story and combos I forgotten. And most of all, reading through my journal makes me smile because I can reminisce over memorable classes and fun times with my friends. <3
Need a journal? I designed a few PDA ones in my shop! You can choose from lined or non-lined (for you artists out there.)
