Pole Sit

A Pole Sit is a wonderful introduction to getting your feet off the ground and learning about how your skin grips the pole. This move can be done on spin or static pole, and unless you are using a silicone pole, it requires shorts so you can use your upper thigh skin to grip the pole. Once you’ve mastered the Pole Sit, you’ll open the door to many new moves and sit variations that you can do in a pole dance routine.

Secretary Sit

The Secretary Sit is a great introduction to tricks on the side of the body, for pole dancers who are comfortable with sits. This is a great sit for photoshoots, aptly also called the Pretty Sit. Using the outside of the knee pit can be confusing at first, but once you get a firm grip with the inside leg, the rest of the sit is straightforward.

Tabletop

The Tabletop is a wonderful move that is popular in many intermediate and advanced transitions. This move opens up a new world of pole dance moves, as being parallel with the floor while already seated in the pole allows for easy mobility both up and down the pole. As a standalone pose, it looks great in photoshoots and can capture an audience's awe in strong musical pauses during routines.
