Pole dance

WHAT IS ALL POLE DANCING ABOUT?

To me pole dancing is a full body workout which is ballet and gymnastics in between. Ballet beacause what you do, in simple words,  is dancing pointing you toes, arching your back, making pirouettes, turns and leg splits, moving in a slow and elegant style, expressing your sensuality; gymnastics beacause at the same time you show yourself and the others you are able to control your muscles and strength and how concentrated you are.

That’s why I always say to my students “if you pole dance you get fit and stay sensual.”

AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC BENEFITS:

  • improves cardio-vascular abilities;
  • improves muscles strength;
  • improves muscles definition:
  • improves balance and movements coordination;
  • improves overall flexibility;
  • corrects posture;
  • builds your sensuality and self-confidence.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT POLE DANCING:

– Pole dance 3 times a week.
– Be sure you always have a rest day in between. Muscles rest is a key to a successful pole dance performances.
– In your rest day you are allowed to easy physycal activity which doesn’t require strength and concentration. For ex. you can go for stretching (not strengthening or deep one though) , work on floorwork or transitions.

BEFORE A POLE DANCING WORKOUT:

  • Convince yourself you are beautiful and sexy. If you feel you are than you are.
  • Be sure you have in your pole bag a bottle of water and 2 towels (one for you and one for the pole)
  • Spins don’t always mean beginner level. There are intermediate and even more advanced spins to master.
  • For men’s happiness and for our comfort and safety less is best: fabric is a pole grip enemy. Be sure you use shirts, legwarmers and whatever covers yoru skin only in the warm up and cool down phase.
  • Take your time learning pole dance: the longer it takes you to warm up and build strength the faster and safer you will progress.
  • Don’t spend time thinking to what you are not able to do but to what  your are able to. Be proud of that.
  • Never apply body lotions in order to prevent slipping on the pole!
  • Before starting pole dancing consult your doctor for your health.

DURING A POLE DANCING WORKOUT:

  1. always warm up ( warm up your muscles and your pole too)
  2. try moves, spins, tricks and whatever on both sides (you never know whis is best)
  3. work with slow and controlled method
  4. stay hydrated
  5. keep track of your progress using a camera
  6. while your teacher show you pay attention to points of contact and muscles engaged.
  7. practice makes perfect. Do not worry if you think you move clumsy at first. Seamless pole dance performances come with time.

AFTER A POLE DANCING WORKOUT:

  1. practice now deep and stengthening stretching: your body is already warm and you can force your muscles. This will help you to maintain your improved flexibility and then release muscles from pain.
  2. rememebr to cool down in order to slowly decrease your heart rate and then body temperature.
  3. apply moisturizing lotions (body, hands and feet) in order to nurrish your after-pole stressed skin.

I think I’ve said enough. Are you ready to start pole dancing?
