I just finished uploading the third choreography tutorial, packed with „common mistakes“ and valuable tips on how to fix these mistakes easily. Suitable for both beginners and more advanced students.
1. How to create a good momentum on the STATIC pole, that lets you spin LONG and SMOOTHLY.
These quick fixes will make your knee hook spins look more elegant and dynamic. Same principle applies to most basic spins.
2. One neat and pretty way to get off the floor.
3. How to come in and out of the Wrist Seat nicely, without squishing your wrist and getting your hand stuck.

Like in the previous tutorials, the moves are combined with some nice transitional moves, and you’ll get to work on your musicality as well.
Personally, I can’t get tired of this song. It’s slow and you might even manage to dance along with me, once you’ve got the sequence.
It’s not important to look exactly like me. We all have different bodies, different body awareness and movement background.
Adjust this pole routine to what feels best to you, and send me a video of your interpretation. Or tag me on social media: Instagram, Facebook
Keep on dancing!
P.S.: Here’s Beginner pole choreography #2 of the flow series.

I always struggled with my movement on the pole because I am more of a twirler, spinner, pirouetter… swinger lol, and because of my ballet background, I have high leg kicks, but I have always been self- conscious because I am not so much an inverter , but your videos now give me the inspiration to work on what I can do , and more
