Are you looking to become a better pole dancer? Whether you are a beginner or an experienced dancer, there is always something new to learn.
In this blog post, we will discuss 10 tips that will help you improve your pole dancing skills. Keep reading for helpful advice on how to make the most of your pole dancing classes!
1. Practice at Home
It is important to practice regularly, even when you are not in class. This will help improve your skills and make you a better dancer. There are many online tutorials that can help you learn new moves.
Practicing at home will help you build more confidence in your dancing and make you a better performer. As you become more comfortable in your ability, you become more open and receptive to learning new techniques.
2. Learn the Basic Moves
The basic pole dance moves are the foundation for all the more advanced tricks and stunts you’ll learn in later classes.
So it’s important to learn them well before moving on to more difficult moves. Not only will this make your learning process easier, but it will also help keep you safe while dancing.
Practice these over and over again until you master them.
3. Join a Pole Dancing Class
Find a local pole dancing class and sign-up!
Joining a local pole dancing class is a great way to get fit, have fun, and meet new people.
Classes are usually small and intimate, so you’ll get to know your classmates and instructor very well. You’ll also have the opportunity to try new moves and progress at your own pace.
And the best part? It’s lots of fun! You’ll feel confident and sexy after just a few classes.
4. Watch Online Tutorials
Whether you sign-up for an online course or create a list of Watch-Later’s on YouTube, online tutorials serve as motivation and education.
Thankfully, we are in an era where so many tips, tricks, and how-tos are shared daily, so there is no shortage of videos teaching you that pole move you’ve been dying to master!
5. Get Fit and Strong
There are two ways getting fit and strong can help you become a better dancer. The first is that being in good shape will give you more stamina and allow you to perform for longer without getting tired.
The second is that being physically strong will make it easier for you to hold your body in the correct positions and move with grace and fluidity. In addition, having a good muscle tone will make your movements look more polished and precise.
6. Try Different Styles of Pole Dancing
We wrote a post about Chinese Pole the other day, and while this is no entry-level business, it does open up the floor a little bit and serve as a reminder that there are different styles and techniques that can be incorporated into your arsenal.
Similarly, Lyra hoop and aerial silks, as well as yoga can all be side hobbies that closely relate to pole and can improve your overall pole dancing ability. Be open-minded!
7. Stay Motivated
Staying open-minded is easier said than done at some times, I know this. But making the effort to stay motivated by celebrating your small victories and poses and moves you once couldn’t do is a game-changer.
Remember – one day, your “warm-up” will be somebody else’s pole goals!
8. Create A Practice Routine
There are a few key reasons why it’s important to create a practice routine for pole dancing. First, having a set routine helps you focus and stay on track during your practice sessions.
It also allows you to track your progress over time, and identify which moves and techniques need more attention.
Additionally, a practice routine can help to increase your strength and flexibility, both of which are essential for pole dancing. Finally, it’s a great way to stay motivated and focused, especially when you are struggling with mastering a new movement or trick.
9. Document Or Journal
Documenting your pole dancing progress is a great way to track your progress and to stay motivated. Seeing the progress you’ve made over time is a great way to keep up the momentum and to stay focused on your goals.
Additionally, documenting your progress can be a lot of fun and it can be a great way to celebrate your accomplishments.
I find my old videos so motivational to look back on and see how far I’ve come. Journalling can also help you see where you may need to focus more of your attention in order to improve. Finally, sharing your progress with others can be a great way to get encouragement and inspire others who may be just starting out.
10. Have Fun!
Enjoy to process, it is supposed to be fun.
