The Spin City Spinning Pole Instructor Course will teach you how to effectively use the spinning mechanism of the pole and will expand your repertoire to include a range of spinning techniques.
When working on a spinning pole it is essential that you understand how the pole differs in nature from a static pole so that it can be used safely and effectively. The theory section of this course will teach you the basic rules of working with the spinning mechanism, the importance of shoulder engagement, hand grip technique and control of momentum, along with health and safety specific to spinning pole. The practical section of this course will cover over key techniques using the spinning mechanism, including combinations and conditioning examples.
UNIT 1 – INTRODUCTION TO SPINNING POLE
To begin the training we will cover the distinct differences between working on static and spinning pole. We’ll cover pole-specific terminology, how to create momentum on a spinning pole and most importantly, how to control the spin and combat dizziness.
UNIT 2 – SPINNING POLE MOVES
The second unit of the course covers our spinning pole introductory syllabus, broken down into three sections; Basic Spins, Seated Spins; Climbing on Spin. Each move will be detailed with a video of the technique including teaching points, safety points, progressions and regressions. The accompanying course manual breaks these down even further with common problems your students may encounter.
