Our Tier 3: Transitional Pole level will serve as a very important bridge between the Beginner Level and Intermediate Level in Pole Fitness. This class will expand upon the curriculum taught in the Beginner Level. In this level you will begin to see the world from a whole new vantage point – upside down! We will focus on basic inversions, inverted crucifix and begin to weave in the Chopper. You will also be exposed to fun new spins including the Hook and Roll, Reverse Grab and Rockstar Spin. After 8 weeks in this class, you will be fully prepared you to move on to our Intermediate Level class.
Hey, I love this article, thanks for that. I’m thinking of subscribing to online pole dancing lessons I noticed you mentioned this, I don’t know much about it though I keep reading reviews about it but can’t make up my mind as to which course or lessons to go with. Or does it not matter and they are all kind of the same? I would like to get your personal opinion on this. I have read a review on http://justlearntodance.com/learn-how-to-pole-dance which covers some recommended courses. Which one would you say is the best to start out with, I don’t have the type of budget to sign up to all of them and I am no expert. I would love to hear your reply and your recommendation. Kind regards.

You don’t, however, need to be perfect. Being a teacher is not the same as striving for a gold medal or first prize. Teachers often require different traits to performers, which is why many famous performers often run one-off workshops to focus on one particular thing as opposed to regular ongoing courses like you’ll find in your local pole dancing studio.

As the class wore on, I began questioning why strippers and pole dancers are looked at so narrow-mindedly. When some people found out I was taking pole dancing classes, it was met with a lot of judgment and disapproval. After all, pole dancing is connected to strip clubs for most people and has mostly been associated with the objectification of women, not their empowerment. My classmates and I, however, were all just regular people there for a good workout and a fun time.

Aside from being a surprisingly great workout, the class was really empowering for me. Not only did I feel super strong hoisting myself up on a pole, but I felt graceful with my long, lengthy body while doing it. The feeling even followed me outside of class when I confidently got on stage during a party and started dancing in front of strangers—something I normally would never consider doing before taking pole dancing classes.

Back in 2015, however, the emergence of the Instagram hashtag #notastripper pointed to a huge division between those who dance for sport and those who do it for a living. At the time, pole fitness enthusiasts and other proponents of the hashtag claimed they were pushing back against the “stigma” of enjoying a form of dance that looks provocative but is strictly for exercise, a movement that appears to be alive and well on Instagram. Unfortunately, the majority of the stigma associated with pole dance often falls on those for whom dancing is a primary source of income, such as strippers—as well as those performing other types of sex work.

i was surprised how sturdy it seemed when i opened the box, in the pictures the purple version seems almost plastic looking but in reality it's sturdy metal and it looks shiny, the pole is thick enough to carry what it promises (up to 220 lb, i would say 200 would be safe for sure). I am 115lb myself but my husband is way heavier so i will have him try it out (cant wait to see That haha!) and post an update here after that.

Poles come in a variety of materials and coatings where each material possesses its own properties, advantages and disadvantages. The materials poles are made of are brass, titanium – gold, stainless steel and chrome.[16] The brass and titanium – gold poles are gold in colour and are used to enhance the grip between the pole and the dancer, these poles are normally used by more advanced dancers. The stainless steel poles aren’t as popular as the other types as they do not have the finest grip however, they are used by dancers who have sensitive skin. The chrome poles are silver in colour and are most popular amongst beginners. The finishes some dance poles may possess are silicone sleeves and powder coatings. Silicone sleeves can provide maximum grip, however, there are safety precautions dancers must take and consider before using silicone sleeves. These measures can include a great amount of clothing to be worn by the dancer and only static moves can be performed. Poles that are coated in powder can provide the best friction and maximum grip for dancers.[20][21]
