Pole Dancing 101
Claim your pole. More and more gyms are offering pole dancing classes as a creative way to get fit. Call yours to see if they offer one (and, if they don't, ask them to). You can also find out if fitness center chains that are known to offer pole dancing classes are in your area. Many independent teachers offer pole dancing classes in local gyms and halls too, so it's worth checking to see if anyone offers lessons near you. If you can't find anyone that will teach you this challenging activity, then you can even buy a pole to install at home (see Tips).
Wear comfortable clothes which expose your arms and legs. Sexiness is optional. Baring your skin will allow you to get a much better grip on the pole with your arms and legs so that you can perform these moves safely.
Grab the pole. Start at the back of the pole, with your inside foot close to the base. Use your strong hand (this will be your right hand, if you are right handed, or your left, if you are left handed) to grab the pole at about head height. Allow your arm to straighten, so your weight is hanging away from the pole.
Step around. Keeping your outside leg straight, swing it out to the side and step all the way around the pole, pivoting on your inside foot at the same time. Allow your knee to bend slightly as you turn.
Hook with your leg. Place your outside foot down just behind the other foot. Transfer your weight to the back foot and hook your inside leg around the front of the pole, getting a good grip right behind the knee.
Arch your body. To finish off, arch your body backwards, lowering your hand to allow for a deeper arch. This is where flexibility comes in. Arch your back only as far as you feel comfortable and make sure that you have a good grip with your leg and your hand.
Straighten up and swing your leg down from the pole, ready to step into the next move...
Still a little lost ...don't be afraid to search youtube for some lessons or join a local class.
