Remember when I posted this combo in my Pole Progress on Video blog?
I’m on a 45mm spinning chrome pole at Brass Vixens Leslieville and the combo again is Fireman Climb – Straddle Invert (aka Inverted V, Helicopter, Chopper) – Outside Leg Hang (aka Gemini) – Inside Leg Hang (aka Scorpio) – Front Crucifix – Switch Outside Leg Hang (aka Gemini) – Pike – Jade (aka Jade Splits, Deville) – Inside Leg Hang – Allegra
The beauty of the spinning pole is that it’s in constant motion – so you don’t have to be ie. you can hold poses for much longer and still be interesting. The spinning is so dazzlingly dangerous that it distracts from the details, such as clean lines and precise placement. Initially, the centripetal force may be a nauseating obstacle, but once you learn to take advantage of the momentum, you feel significantly lighter and/or stronger. It’s also a bucket-load of fun to spin really fast.
Here’s the same combo on a 45mm static chrome pole.
Because you’re the only thing moving on a static pole, it requires much more precision and detail – there’s no fancy spinning to create a diversion from noodle-y knees and dangly feet. There’s also no momentum hurling your weight outward, so it requires much more strength and control to get up.
My goal: to develop the precision and control required for static pole and use it on spinning pole.
Oh yeah, I’m also working on some floor work to string these combos together… because I heard there might be a pole at Asiansploitation’s upcoming show… Asiansploitation Goes Deep (June 6-9, 2012 in Toronto)…
