“Drops & Tumbles” sound pretty cool, huh?
And they do look pretty cool. But what are they exactly?
They’re basically transitions (or a series of transitions) that let you flip down the pole or dismount in a fast and dynamic way. They’re similar to gymnastics-style moves but applied to the pole.
They’ll make your pole dance routines look more powerful and dynamic. And they’ll make YOU look more skillful and confident.
Drops & Tumbles are for intermediate and advanced level students. You need to
- be able to invert
- feel comfortable in inverted positions (like pole-assisted handstands or elbow stands)
- be familiar with the contact points of the fundamental upside-down tricks on the pole – leg hangs and switches, Jasmine, Dragonfly, Butterfly, Jade.
Drops & Tumbles can seem terrifying when you’re trying them for the first time. You might not dare to move an inch without having your teacher standing next to you and spotting you.
But here’s a secret: you can do most drops and tumbles in a safe and controlled manner.
Before doing them full-on, you should be able to do them slowly, making sure that you’re shifting between contact points in a smooth and safe way.
There are lots of easier progressions and prep work you can do to support your body to gain confidence and security, as you move on to the more advanced variations.
And that’s what you will learn in my “Drops & Tumbles” video lessons: the necessary foundations to execute drops and tumbles in a slow and controlled way, with lots of progressions and safety tips.
And the end result will look something like this:
