dance technique for pole dance move

Sometimes when girls begin to learn how to pole dance they fear they won’t be any good at it because they have no dance experience.   This is a very common fear for beginner pole dancers and it doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to do a good pole dance in the future.

If you have previous dance experience, you will be at an advantage over somebody who doesn’t – plain and simple.  However, that isn’t meant to be taken as a sign of defeat.

So what do you do when you want to learn pole dancing but don’t’ have dance experience?

Learn good technique and posture.  One of the best ways to do this is by finding a pole dance teacher either locally or online that will teach you how to pole dance with good dance technique from the very beginning.

If you learn to pole dance without first learning good dance technique, then you will have to go back and re-learn how to execute pole moves and tricks properly.  It is essential to learn to dance properly to avoid injury and to ensure the move looks sexy, elegant, and sleek.

Many women can dance on a pole but it doesn’t mean they all look good doing it.

The biggest difference between a good pole dancer and a horrible one is a good dance technique.

Finding a teacher who has a strong background in Ballet will be a huge benefit.  Another way to tell if your teacher has good dance technique is to simply watch what they do.  They will look smooth, elegant, and have no problem executing the moves with grace.  It will look slow, controlled, easy, and deliberate.

The overuse of sexiness will not be a sign of good pole dancing.

Since this type of dancing is largely being used for fitness reasons these days, there are new studios sprouting up all over the country.  Finding a local pole dancing class and getting a private lesson with the right teacher is a good way to learn.

If you don’t have access to local dance classes, then try and online pole dance lessons and learn how to dance properly from the comfort of your own home.

The right online pole dancing lessons will give you all those dance technique tips you are looking for that will make a world of difference in how you dance.  You will surely stand out against other dancers who don’t understand those proper dance elements.

Also, taking a class through online video lessons saves a ton of money.  You will need a spotter to execute some of the moves safely so be sure to have your friends join you.

      I’m still trying to learn how to do an invert without using a stool. It’s hard to kick myself upside down or swing my leg up there. At least I’m having fun building my muscles to hang upside down for a little while. And I’m doing hand stands to get comfortable being upside down.

        Hi Crystal,

        I noticed that you already found my other blog post about learning to invert safely at home when you don’t have a spotter and you stopped using the stool. I don’t recommend using a stool, learning from the floor is safer and allows time for your body to develop the strength for a full invert with proper form. It’s fun to invert! I remember when I first started I couldn’t wait to go upside down! Keep working on those handstand, they are a great way to exist an invert and remember there are always the “emergency exists” as well. Those are in your beginner lessons included in your pole kit purchase. You are blessed to have the strength to do what you are doing now, keep going and smile!
