Body Waves: Pole Dance Tutorial

Stand facing the pole and lightly place your strong hand on the pole around chest height just to keep you steady. You need to ripple your body in and out of the pole. With each part of the body you will need to move it in to the pole and then out again as you move the next part of your body in and out. Start with your head, then chest, stomach and pelvis.

There are many different variations of the body wave – you can do them from head down or pelvis up. You can do an aerial body wave and even an inverted body wave. The way you move your body (ie into the pole and out) is still the same for which ever version you chose.

About Holly Munson

Holly started pole dancing after admiring the grace, skill and elegance of pole performances and immediately falling in love with the style. After half a decade of bruises, struggling and then the satisfaction of success, her own pole school Firefly Poles was born. The vision is to share that same passion with others.

Holly wished that there was more Pole Dancing help available when I was learning, so now she aims to provide that help through writing, blogging and teaching here on PoleFreaks.

Holly is also a Level 3 Personal Trainer and an ambassador for Dragonfly pole wear, and also writes regularly for the Dragonfly blog .
