Pole Tutorial! Corkscrew into Inversion!

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=428ED45NJKg[/youtube]So here is another clip, and a turn that I have grown to like more and more.  It used to be difficult for me, but now it feels pretty good.

it is what it is

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRDta_f7yYc[/youtube]I really like taping myself when I practice, and not because I love looking at myself, but it really helps me see what I like that I am doing, and also what I want to change or make better.  Sometimes our brain tricks us into thinking we are doing something, then we watch it, and it is not what we thought it was.

Tutorial! Turn!

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMWiX7YvmBM[/youtube]This is a fun easy turn that looks harder than it is.  I love this turn.  When I show people this turn, they are always amazed because they can't figure out what the body is doing.  So I hope you have fun with this one, and show me your version of this turn.

Spinning Pole

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md3aJiVW6QE[/youtube]Tonight was the first time I really spent time on practicing on the spinning pole.  For some reason I have not been motivated to trying it that much, but decided to go for it.  I definitely feel a little queasy, but I really enjoyed it.  I felt very pretty on spin mode and liked that all angles of a move can be seen while in that pose.  And it feels like it can be more powerful when dancing and spinning that fast. 

So I think I will start practicing more of the spinning, but am still a huge fan of static.

Flag Pole Dance Tutorial!

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLmWQHTJGlg[/youtube]So here is the first of many mini pole dance tutorials.   I really hope this helps some dancers.  I know I have learned a lot through the internet and want to do the same for others.  Also, if there are any moves you want to see a tutorial on, please let me know and I will gladly do it....well assuming I can do the move. 

The flag came fairly easy for me.  Because I have a background in hop hop and breakdance, it felt familiar to my body, unlike some other moves do not feel natural to me.  The flag looks super cool from high up on the pole, which I will do a tutorial on that as well, as it is a different story getting into it from the air.

So enjoy and I hope you guys have fun!  And if you can, post a video on Denver Dance Facebook Page of your version of the flag!!!
