A Guide to Pole Dancing for the ‘Not-So-Coordinated’

Are you secretly watching pole videos on social media, thinking, “I’d love to do pole, but I’m so uncoordinated”? Well, guess what? You’re not alone, and we’ve got some news that might just rock your world – pole dancing is for everyone, even if you occasionally trip over your own two left feet! In fact, the uncoordinated are often the biggest stand outs. Why? Read on to find out.

Let’s debunk the myth that you need to be a coordination prodigy to rock the pole and explore why pole dancing is for every individual who’s ready to spice up their fitness journey.

“When I started pole I could not dance at all and couldn’t touch my toes. Now I can somewhat dance and just barely touch my toes haha” 

Lauren, A current student at Achieve Pole Studio

Embrace the Uncoordinated Awesomeness

First things first – being uncoordinated is not a crime! We’ve all had our fair share of awkward moments, and here’s a little secret: pole dancing is the perfect remedy for those who think coordination is not their strong suit. Pole dancing celebrates uniqueness, quirks, and yes, even those dance moves that may seem a bit out of sync. Pole is your playground to embrace the uncoordinated awesomeness that makes you unique.

As they say, “Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Taken”.

“I’ve been on the judging panel for pole competitions worldwide for 10 years now, and the stand outs, the ones I remember, are the ones who were different, quirky, UNIQUE!”

Andrea Ryff, 2x World Pole Champion, studio owner & International judge.

Pole dancing is a form of self expression & exploration. Often, those with a background in dance will bring learned movement patterns into the pole studio with them and find this hard to break. Those with no dance background or skills come with a blank canvas, and this is an exciting place to start from. No predefined expectations holding your movement style back!

Coordination? It’s a Journey, Not a Destination

Now, let’s debunk the myth that you need to be a dance prodigy to be able to pole dance. The truth is, nobody starts as a pole superstar. Pole dancing is a journey, not a destination. It’s about progress, not perfection – “Every Pro Was Once a Beginner”.

Pole studios offer a variety of classes and every instructor will have a unique way of moving. Do all the classes, learn from all the instructors, as each one will help you lay the foundations of your own dance style. Take your favourite moves and sequences from each one and make them your own. Before you know it your self defined uncoordination will be your unique superpower. 

At Achieve Pole Studio our classes are designed to cater to all levels, including those who think coordination is a foreign language. We break down each move, making it accessible and fun for everyone. Trust us; you’ll be twirling like a pro sooner than you think!

Sculpting Confidence and Strength

Now, let’s talk about the perks – pole dancing isn’t just about looking fabulous on the pole (although that’s a bonus). It’s a full-body workout that sculpts and tones muscles you didn’t even know you had. From arms to core and legs, pole dancing leaves you feeling strong, confident, and ready to take on the world. Who needs a traditional gym when you can build strength and have a blast doing it?

Say Goodbye to Boring Workouts, Hello to Pole Fun

Traditional workouts can be a bit snooze-worthy, but pole dancing? It’s a whole new level of fun. Picture this: upbeat music, a vibrant atmosphere, and the exhilaration of conquering a new move. Pole isn’t just exercise; it’s a party! Say goodbye to dull, repetitive routines and hello to an experience that’s as enjoyable as it is effective.
