EXAMPLES OF BASE MOVES FOR EACH LEVEL


EXAMPLES of base moves for each amateur division are NOT rules for division moves, just a guide to what you could expect to see mastered in each level.


This list is to help competitors and trainers understand where a competitors' placement could fall and how to design training schedules/workshops/sessions/etc.


You can see how the mastery of the base moves allows for exploration of different variations of the base moves. This list is not exhaustive, there are too many moves and variations to list them all.


NOTE: Elbow grip ayeshas are considered three points of contact, however, they are only allowed in intermediate with a fourth point of contact (i.e. a foot or knee).


Visual move examples can be found in the Spin City Pole Bible, Pole Community Syllabus, and/or PoleDanceDictionary.com.
