Private pole dancing lessons can be a great option for some people, particularly those with unpredictable schedules that make it hard to attend group classes on the same day each week.
And if if you're shy or uncomfortable in groups, a private pole dancing class or two might just be the perfect solution for you.
In fact, many women find private pole dance lessons a nice bridge into group classes, once they've gained some confidence and experience.
Well, cost is certainly one factor. One on one time with an instructor is always more expensive than shared time.
However, remember that you'll also be able to cover a LOT more in a one hour private lesson than you would in a group class, which usually makes private classes very worthwhile.
The other major disadvantage with private lessons is that you won't have the support and feedback of other women who are sharing your pole dancing journey. Now if you're the super shy type you may be asking yourself how this could possibly be a disadvantage!
But trust me on this one, I've seen it happen over and over again. Until you've experienced it, it's hard to imagine what a room full of women cheering, clapping and shouting encouragement can do for you the first time you pull off a move you never thought you could.
Imagine the feeling of knowing that every woman in the class believes in you, is rooting for you, and is ready to celebrate with you when you finally do it. There's nothing like a group pole dancing class to generate that kind of energy!
Nevertheless, if you're nervous, shy, lack confidence, or are worried about whether you're fit enough to join a group class, private pole dance lessons may well be the way to go, at least for now.
