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 Useful Pole Dance Accessories

1. Floor mat.
Protect your knees during floorwork, and handy for cooling off stretches

2. Cloth to wipe hands and pole

3. Kick-ass music you love moving to

4. A mirror for checking your technique and pole style

5. Fingerless cycling gloves, in case of sore palms

6. A pair of knee length boots.
Helpful when beginning aerial pole poses and inverts: they protect your feet and shins, and give some extra grip while learning new techniques and building up strength.

7. Medicine box - plasters, cool pack, aloe vera gel for pole burn and arnica cream for bruising.

8. Camera for filming your moves.

What would you add?

a good pair of hotpants! (try american apparel) or cycling shorts for s'thing a bit longer...

I also have arnica pills, arnica gel and windowlene, tho would prefer to find s'thing less toxic...

legwarmers for warmup are good too!
