Hi this is Susan Hilferty, owner of Pole Fitness Miami located in Coral Gables, Florida. In this clip I am going to show you some pole dancing exercises that we actually like to do in our classes here at Pole Fitness. What we are going to do when we are on the floor is we are going to do a lot of stretching, extension and flexibility is extremely important with pole dancing so to get a good stretch and warm up in before you start dancing is really critical. So what you are going to do is just come out into a V position and walk your body down, no bouncing just lay your body down, just go as far as you can stretching and lengthening your legs out, important not to bend your knees, really lengthen the body out and just hold it as far as you can go down. You then want to bring your whole body over to one leg and then just stretch your whole body out and come all the way up and bring the other arm up and you are going to stretch it to the other side as well and again stretching down to the other side and again lengthening and reaching your body even further when you come around. The reason we do these stretching exercises is very important. Now pole dancing is very equal to ballet and as a former ballet dancer stretching is essential in becoming more flexible and lengthening the muscles because when we do a lot of weight training it shortens the muscles and then with stretching in exercise form you are going to lengthen the muscles out so you can create more flexibility which will be better on the pole when you do all of those poles tricks. Thank you so much for watching. This is Susan Hilferty.
