To prevent your experience from turning into a disaster, ensure your pole is fitted securely according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Always give yourself and others a lot of space and ensure that there is nothing to obstruct your movements.
2- Some poles are just for posing. These are called ‘toy’ poles. Do not attempt pole dancing on these, they are not built to actually hold your weight and attempting to dance on them may result in a severe injury.
3- Never wear oils or lotions when pole dancing. These will make the pole slippery and hazardous. Before you start, you may need to wipe down the pole to remove any grease or sweat.
