Pole Dance Spin Moves

Assisted Pencil Spin

The Assisted Pencil Spin is a wonderfully flowy move that is best performed on spin pole. This move can be performed with either baseball grip or anchor grip and requires a lot of core and shoulder engagement to keep your body upright. It is considered an “assisted” spin because your inside foot assists you in providing momentum. A non-assisted version of this spin would require you to deadlift into the motion.

Attitude Spin

The Attitude Spin is a gorgeous beginner pole dance spin that will start teaching you dynamic movements required in pole that are outside of the average range of motion. Once you are familiar with hooking your leg into the pole, the next step is to get familiar with the feeling of bringing the back leg behind your body and holding it there, which will start to test your glutes and how flexible your body is.

Back Hook Spin

The Back Hook Spin is the reverse of the Front Hook Spin, however, because of the backwards momentum, it is mechanically different. Both spins are excellent for beginner pole dancers and teach a wide variety of skills on the pole. In this spin, you will need to generate more backwards momentum to bring your body around the pole successfully.

Carousel Spin

The Carousel Spin is a gorgeous move that can be performed on either static or spinning pole. In this spin, you will be facing the pole and bringing the knees together and up, holding your body away from the pole.

Because you are holding your entire body weight away from the pole, it is important that you have practiced and understand the concepts of the Push - Pull method required when performing this spin.

Chair Spin

The Chair Spin is an elegant, graceful beginner pole trick to begin learning about how momentum works with the legs in motion away from the pole. It is an excellent spin for the beginner pole dancer who has already taken the time to familiarize themselves with how some of the other spins feel.

This move requires the Push – Pull Method, which means you will need to push away from the pole with your bottom arm, and pull your body up – keeping the shoulders down and engaged – with your top arm.
