Spinning combo by instructor Olena Minina, showing the unique possibilities of spin pole.
You know there are two modes of pole, static and spinning. But did you realize they are totally different apparatuses?
Many tricks are specific to one kind of pole. Some can only be done on static; others can only be done on spin. But even for tricks that can be done on both, most of them only make sense on one. (Static hood ornament, anyone?) And when you start putting moves together, the differences between static and spin combos get even more extreme. (Watch the video above to see what we mean!)
The differences between static and spin pole actually start from the very beginning, at the level of basic technique. That’s why we created Essentials of Spin, a 4-week program to help you master the fundamental skills of spin pole. The course starts from scratch, so you don’t need any pole experience. But the instructor — current world champion Olena Minina — is meticulous about proper technique. So if you have some experience and now you’re ready to get serious, this course is also a perfect fit.
Note: Essentials of Spin may be taken either before, after, or concurrently with our Essentials of Static course.
