Certification for these pole dance classes is expensive in comparison to other fitness classes. For example, Zumba costs about $200 to get certified whereas pole dance certification is $2000.

How To Learn Pole Dancing For Pole Dance Beginners

Online pole videos are a great way to get started learning the basics of pole dancing.

Do you own a dance pole? If not; then getting a pole dancing kit for home can be a good place to start. Some dance pole kits contains everything you need to get started. Things such as; Online pole lessons, A dance pole and a grip aid; all things that pole dance beginners often need.

Once you have your starter pole dancing kit and have set up your dance space at home, then you can begin your first pole dancing training methods.

Pole dancing methods of training very from person to person depending on their current fitness level, fitness and dance goals, as well as personal emotion states. Another factor that will affect your at home pole dancing training is the type of teacher you choose learn from. Every teacher also has different teaching styles, some are more erotic for a stripper practice, some are for competitive training. While others are more for fitness training. And of course there are teaching styles that fall in between all those styles as well. Here is a great article about how to choose the right teacher and online pole lessons for YOU and your unique needs =>

While teaching pole dancing to beginners, I have learned that fun pole dancing routines work best to ensure long term success while maximizing the “fun factor” in pole dance fitness.

You can learn several different moves and then string them together in a sexy dance routine. Most beginners are not great dance choreographers so the very best way to teach yourself pole at home is to watch step-by-step videos of pre-choreographed dance routines to music.  You can learn the individual pole moves, but you may find yourself quickly bored and wondering how to use them when dancing to music.

If you start by learning pole with a beginners dance routine, you will learn the basic pole moves along the way.  It’s fun, it’s easy, and you will smile the whole dance as you shake your booty!

Some people resort to single DVD’s and while this is an ok option, the question is which DVD’s are best for beginners and which ones are advanced?  This is a tough question to answer since everybody is different when they start pole dancing.

MOST beginner pole dancing DVD’s are not truly “beginner” for the average everyday woman looking to lose a few pounds or shed the baby weight. 

So really, unless you know a lot about what good pole dancing is, you could accidentally waste your money and buy the wrong DVD

Some woman (or men) will be out of shape and will be using pole dancing as a form of exercise to burn extra calories while others may have a fit body and want a new way of taking their fitness to the next level – level sexy!  Not all DVD’s are pole dancing for fitness, they can be very exotic and don’t have things like losing weight in mind.

So be thorough and get the lessons that are right for you 🙂

Don’t forget that you will need a dance pole before you get started, so get help picking out a safe and study dance pole for home.

    I’m looking forward to learning pole dancing at home. Before I invest in a pole, I’m thinking I will make the long drive to do a real class once. What are good ways to strengthen my hands, arms, shoulders so that I can get the most out of that first class? Thank you!

      Hi Lauren : )

      There is actually a great article about how to strengthen you upper body to prepare for pole dancing here =>

      However, since you don’t have a dance pole to do the exercises, the BEST think to do is go to a local playground and look at the jungle gym area for a kids fireman type pole or something that would work like a pole so you can to pull ups there. You can do push ups and pull ups at the gym or on the floor, however, you do use more and different muscles when you are doing it on a pole and nothing gets your upper body prepared quite like the exercises you can do on a pole.

      Hope that helps : )
