Master Your Outside Leg Hang: 3 Essential Pole Dance Tips

Three tips for the Outside leg hang pole move:

There are so many pole dance moves that come from an outside leg hang (aka Gemini).

Once you get really confident in your outside leg hang, the moves you add onto it will come much more easily… there are so many!

In the video above, I’m going to share three simple pole dance tips with you to help you get your outside leg hang.

I’ll show you how to avoid some of the common mistakes I see students making at the studio.

1. Enter From a Straddle

If you can already do a straddle invert, you’ll find it much easier to get into your outside leg hand from a good straddle position!

My straddle tips video from a few weeks ago here on the blog has tips to help you get your straddle.

2. Get Your Hands Out of The Way

Many pole dancers who try their outside leg hand for the first time find that they accidentally trap their hands between their thighs and the pole when getting into the outside leg hang position.

As you find the grip with your outside leg coming around the pole, be sure to move your hands down the pole slightly to get them out of the way.

3. Use All Your Grip Points on The Pole

The grip points for an outside leg hang are: behind the outside leg, on the side of your stomach, and in your armpit.

While you’re learning the move, be sure to take advantage of all of the grip points.

As you get more comfortable with the outside leg hang, you’ll be able to rely more on the leg grip.

I do hope that you find these outside leg hang tips helpful.
