Drama Queen

The Drama Queen is a compact beginner pole dance trick that builds off the basic Pole Sit. In this move, you will get to experience moving your body around the pole more than most beginner moves allow. By bringing your arm around and introducing another point of contact between the back of the arm and the torso, you stabilize your body before cocooning around your legs in the front of the pole.

Fan Kick

The Fan Kick is a graceful beginner pole trick that engages the whole body. From the hands, which are held in a stronghold grip and keeping your bodyweight up, to the activation of the core that tilts the pelvis up and helps the legs sweep wide, to the legs themselves, which are sweeping around the body with grace and dexterity.

This beginner pole trick is a versatile move, allowing you to add some flare to any pole dance routine, provide a way around the pole, or help you gain momentum for a follow-up trick in more advanced levels.
