To start off with you will be wearing the correct underwear, and that’s something I will advise you as you work out your style.
Now in a nutshell, the basic idea of pole dancing is to kick with your feet. At first there will be no kicks, and that’s actually great! After a while you will start to do flips with other people and your legs will turn into a circle! You will see people in their twenties or thirties who are great pole dancers spinning around on their feet all day, so don’t be afraid to ask your neighbours for their opinion. Just remember to always focus on the feet, don’t move your body. And don’t focus on the pole at all! If you really are serious about being a good pole dancer, the best equipment you can get is a pole!
What are some of the most common mistakes beginners make when learning to pole dance?
The biggest mistake beginners make is jumping straight into pole dancing. The easiest way to avoid this is to first read the instruction book or DVD or watch a tutorial, then just start at the beginning – you may even be able to get that from your local pole club or club owner.
Some more common mistakes are:
Having trouble learning how to sit properly, without slouching or falling over.
Having trouble understanding how to stay in line and maintain control, especially in the beginning.
Having a tendency to try and get extra pole experience for fun.
Some of the ways to help a beginner are:
Always focus on the feet! Don’t move your body. Make sure to keep your legs moving, and don’t move them too much.
If you get to pole stage, keep a strong core as pole dancing can be exhausting!
Remember to keep your knees together and to get enough circulation into them.
A few things to try:
Avoid pushing too hard, as it hurts!
If you have any physical conditions, such as a stomach problem, don’t do it!
If you have some physical condition like a heart condition or diabetes, it’s best not to do it.
Be nice to friends and family, not that it will help, but it can be a great motivation to keep your legs moving!
A few things to remember for yourself:
Be patient, but don’t sweat!
There is no time to get fat and have no muscle tone! A great way to help
