Do you remember tutorial #6 – The Inside Forearm Spin?
Today I’ll show you how to take this spin into the air, where we’ll play with different beautiful variations on it.
What’s special about the Aerial Forearm Grip Spin is that it’s probably the most natural continuation of Forearm Grip Climbs. And that’s why it’s the #1 move I use to “dance” my climbs. If you’re following my spinning pole routines and combos, you might recognize variations of this spin between climbs.
Of course, it hasn’t been always like that. I used to climb straight forward to tricks for a long time. Until I had enough of regular, boring climbing and decided to make it just as beautiful as the rest of my routines.
In short: Yes, you can use this spin to transition into climbing. And yes, you can also use it between your climbs to turn them into the most beautiful part of your pole dance routines. See how in the videos below.
The other cool thing about it is that there are lots of variations and shapes you can create with it. Simply try playing with your legs to create your own spins.
Have you ever tried dancing your climbs? How did that work? Or did you get stuck?
As always, here’s my pole routine including this week’s spin and a new pole split move that I learned from a tutorial.
P.S.: Pretty much all spins from the series #15spinsintoclimb can be performed higher on the pole. If you’re looking for an extra challenge, this is it! Try the spins from tutorials 1-11 higher on the pole.
