Pole dancing is a sensual pleasure for both you and your audience. However, things can go south literally, if you don’t properly grip the pole and lose your balance. Not only will this put an end to your perfectly choreographed dance, but it could also result in a serious injury to you. You don’t want to end up with a broken wrist, broken leg or even worse, a head injury.
This is why it is important for you to practice practice practice and rely heavily on pole dance grip aids. There are many different types of aids that pole dancers use. Not everyone can use the same type of aids because not everyone has the same type of pole and everyone is different. Although it may be sensual, pole dancing still requires you to exert energy and sweat.
What Works for You?
In order to find the right pole dance grip products, you must first ask yourself a lot of questions? Do you have chapped or dry hands? Do you sweat a lot? Are you using a static or spinning pole? In order to find the best product for your needs, you must answer all of these questions first.
This means that you must learn your body, research various pole grip aids and learn what works for you. If another pole dancer uses a certain product successfully, this doesn’t mean that it will automatically work for you too.
Your Hands and Body
You must grip the pole successfully if you want to be a good pole dancer. When your hands are too sweaty or too dry, it is hard to get a good grip and dance. Find the right balance when buying grip aids. You don’t want a product that makes your hands too dry and make them chap. But you also don’t want a product that provides so much moisture that your palms get too sweaty, and you slip off of the pole.
There are plenty of products that can be applied to your hands or body. They are usually available in powder, spray, chalk or lotion form. If you don’t want to apply them directly to your hands or body, there are pole grip products that can also be applied directly to the pole.
Find the pole dance grip aids that work best for you. Apply them to your hands, body or directly to the pole. This is the best way to ensure that your pole dance experience is a safe one.
