Pole dancing is taking the world by storm. Aside from the fact that it is a fun hobby, it can as well replace the gym. Yes, it is true that pole dancing is a great exercise if one wants a healthy and sexy body. This kind of exercise can tone the different muscles in the body and can as well improve flexibility. But, pole dancing is not as easy as climbing a tree, thus safety must always be observed. And in order to be safe, the very first thing that an individual needs to check is the kind of pole dancing poles that is to be used in rehearsals and actual performance.

The Safety Factor

The pole used in the dance can affect a pole dancer’s dance or performance. It is critical to choose the appropriate pole. There are a lot of factors that must be considered; factors like your weight, the ceiling height, transportability, the tricks that you plan on doing, how often you are going to use it and more. The pole of your choice is very vital for your safety. The material is as well another consideration that individuals must never take for granted.

The Pole Types

There are four types of material that can be used in the making of poles namely titanium gold, chrome, brass and stainless steel. Here are some tips to choose and determine the different materials of pole dancing poles:

  • Titanium gold dance poles. These poles are gold in color. These have an electronically coated surface, which increases the grip.
  • Chrome dance poles. Poles which are made from chrome have a stainless steel like texture and have silver color. But, compared to stainless steel poles, chrome poles offer more grip.
  • Brass dance poles. Poles made from brass are gold like titanium gold poles and are shiny and smooth. This is recommended for more advanced pole dancers because it offers more grips.
  • Stainless steel dance poles. Stainless steel poles are silver poles which are very easy to clean and last up to many years, thus making it a good investment.

Stationary Poles vs. Detachable Poles

There are pole dancers who accept gigs here and there; the dance pole that will use needs to be considered before a performance. These pole dancers need poles which can be installed in just a matter of minutes. There are also those places where stationary poles are not available so that they can only make use of detachable ones. But, pole dancers need not worry because detachable poles are as sturdy as those stationary ones depending on the brand and manufacturer.

Other Salient Factors to Consider

The height of the ceiling where the pole is going to be placed also matters. There are poles which need an exact measurement of the ceiling but there are also those which can be adjusted. However, there are dancers who prefer freestanding poles which are stable and sturdy even without a ceiling. The size or diameter is another consideration. The pole size or diameter is the thickness of the pole. The standard size of a pole is two inches. A two-inch pole is hard to grip and is not ideal for beginners but in time, they are going to get used to it. There are smaller pole dancers who prefer smaller poles for easier grip since they have small hands; often the size is 1.75 inches. The size affects the price, but normally a two inch pole price is the same with a 1.75 inch pole and if there is a difference, it isn’t going to be huge.

Pole dancers, especially beginners, need to carefully choose the pole dancing poles they are going to use because this is one of the safety tips that they must never take for granted. They need to be as comfortable as possible.
