I'm Elaine, I'm a UK Pole Dance Instructor, teaching pole dancing in Surrey since 2005, and this is my Blog, where I put video-clips, pictures and articles as a resource for pole students (and sometimes just to let off steam, hehe). I try to post regularly, and would love to read any feedback so do post a comment.. Or add your email to get new posts. Enjoy :-)

8 Essential Pole Dancing Habits for Good Technique

These are general and relate to many of the spins. Adopting them will bring quicker improvements to technique:

1. Always engage your core abdominal muscles
2. Leave a good space when moving around the pole into the spin
3. Try out the moves on both sides
4. Usually, your stronger hand
/ arm will be closest to the pole. Keep it high and straight
5. Breathe
6. Relax your grip just a little
7. Clean the pole and hands often
8. Allow your foot to pivot (come up onto ball of foot if necessary).

I'm not really getting the extension I want on the "weak-side" leg holds and my lap dancing could use some work.

Matt I bet you have some *really* bad habits. Possibly involving penguins and your ex's. And empty Pinot Grigio bottles. Or Mexicans.

Don't hold back..
