3 Ways Grip Aids Improve Your Pole Dancing
Pole dancers know well and truly that grip aids are essential for anyone's bag of tricks. From newbies, instructors and performers, grip aids can assist by adding control, balance and safety. There's nothing worse than feeling as though you're slipping whilst you're trying to take a video of a new exciting trick you've just learnt! And you don't want to sacrificing the sass of your routine because of slippery hands or contact points.
If you're pole dancing between home and different studios, you also want to be able to maintain your level of grip, regardless of what pole surface, material, or pole width comes your way. The only way to make the most of your pole experience every time, is by using a grippy solution! This is where we talk all things grip aids and how they help us make the most.
Whether you are a seasonal competitor or a student starting out, grip aids help with controlling movement. It's not uncommon for your hands to sweat and slip on the pole – but that can really make you feel like you're lacking the skills to execute moves! Grip aids create a layer of protection against moisture and makes it so much easier to hold on. If you're climbing the pole, doing inverts, or simply wanting to spin for longer, pole dance grip will help you get a firm hold. Sweaty hands are a common problem, and it's good to know there are workarounds for that too.
During pole dancing, it's one thing to be talented, but another to have a firm grasp on your apparatus. When you're wanting your moves to appear seamless and flawless, turn to pole grip for balance and stability. When you're incorporating tricks that require various contact points on your skin, adding high-quality grip will give you the extra stick, making it easier on your body to do what you want it to do!
