โ 
What does that mean, in practical terms? โ 
โ 
It means that dancing to the full extent, with fullness or abundance, is everything!โ 
โ 
Ok….but how do I achieve this? โ 
โ 
๐™ƒ๐™š๐™ง๐™š ๐™–๐™ง๐™š 3 ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ฅ๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™ž๐™ข๐™ฅ๐™ง๐™ค๐™ซ๐™š ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐˜ผ๐™ˆ๐™‹๐™‡๐™„๐™๐™๐˜ฟ๐™€โ 
(this applies to both exotic and non-exotic pole):โ 
โ 
1. Don’t cut your movements short! Take all your leg circles, swirls, twirls and glides and kicks to the full extent. Lift your leg as high as you can, hold your spin a second or two longer, add an arm extension. Make every movement fuller and bigger. โ 
โ 
2. Emphasise the contrast between closed and open shapes. One of the keys to making you look more flowy and flexi when you dance is to create contrasts using your spine, specifically moving between closed and open shapes. For example, complete a slight rounding of the spine & extend an arm and leg in front of you, before arching your spine, leaning your head back, and extending your arm and leg behind you or to the side. Voila – instant flexibility and amplitude!โ 
โ 
3. Go low, then high! Small, then big! Amplitude can be created visually through changes in level (for example reaching a leg high, then taking it into a twirl to the floor) and also through changes in the area you cover in a movement (for example, a tight pirouette on the spot, followed by a twirl with an extended leg shape or extended arm). Going small first creates the feeling of amplitude in the movement that follows. Use contracts to create Amplitude.โ 
โ 
And most of all, remember to enjoy how it feels to dance. Pole requires both good technique and passion – this is the secret sauce that will take your dance to the next level. โ
