If you are willing to abstain from laughter and socializing with other girls…..then yes of course it is possible! There are many online courses available. However, it is advisable not to practice completely alone, and to have someone around while you practice. Acrobatic elements, which may be life threatening if done alone and unsupervised, are performed during practice. For this reason practicing with an instructor is irreplaceable! Still it is desired for girls who attend our trainings to have their own pole at home and practice the same exercise they did during the trainings. Those who do not have a pole at home can attend Pandora’s special lessons.
