I’ve loved training as a new pole dance instructor. The ins and outs of teaching the moves I know and love are really fascinating. However, it’s always good to have some support in this new exciting but nerve-wracking (because I’m an overachieving nerd) part of my life. Luckily, the folks at Spin City Aerial Fitness gifted me their “Ultimate Pole Bible” for review so I could get some inspo on moves and combos. This post is about what you can expect from their bible – and a nice opportunity to win one for yourself in my first ever giveaway!
Why Instructors Can Benefit From A Pole Bible
Studios can have training programs or follow the instructors’ own initiative, but with pole becoming so popular in such a short amount of time, and with so many dance and training styles having an influence on our moves, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed about what to teach or practice.
When I was only training at home, I followed my friend Little Dee’s advice and created a “bag of tricks” with beginner, intermediate and advanced tricks I’d tried in classes so that I’d have to pick some and turn them into a combo.
Then I got lazy and decided that shaking my butt was cooler and that I couldn’t be bothered to train some tricks I didn’t even remember.
Now that I’m an instructor, I can’t really get away with telling my students it’s fine if they just shake their butt. I have to create combos, challenge them, try out new moves that even I might not know. This is part of pole, right? The challenge.
Why Recreational Pole Dancers Can Benefit From A Pole Bible
Ever tried to find a combo on Instagram to then be like: “Oh, look, a cat”? Same. I’m so easily distracted.
Having all pole moves in one place is a manna from heaven in the attention economy if you’re trying to stay focused and train by yourself.
Plus, it’s the best way to get inspired to find new moves to ask your instructor to demonstrate. Because you should never, ever try a move you have never seen in class by yourself, without someone to help you in case you fall.
Repeat with me: never. The Spin City Pole Bible is for inspiration. Not for danger.

It’s perfect for beginner students too, because it illustrates spotting, what you need to wear to train and pole levels to make sure you’re training safely.
