roadmap/ Intro to Feeling the Pole Upright: Making Physics Aesthetic.pdf (for learners)
Peer reviewed visualization technique (graphic model) connecting physical methods to desired push & pull skill concepts. Designed for learners who continue to hear ‘push & pull cues’, but have yet to fully synthesize what it feels like in practice.
Feeling the pole and intending to pole dance is a two-way physical interaction, that requires physics. This ain’t no boring ass 11th grade explanatory handout or a strength & fitness how-to. Rather, this is about connecting the brain (knowing what to do) with the body (doing).
All methods in this roadmap are non-inversion practices intended for learners who practice outside of a studio.
“Inverted & transition push & pull physics” and “informing push & pull practices so that they can be learned” will be available in other iterations
182kb Instant download 3 page PDF (must have PDF rendering software to open). Cover + roadmap + appendix pages.
Floor, base, aerial and non pole methods that are intersectional practices — focus is not fitness, focus is on internalizing physics

Concisely exposes 3 abstract concepts of push & pull and synthesizes them into 15 concrete actualization methods for upright execution (non-inversion)
Minimalistic and print-friendly roadmap page. 11 x 8.5 document – Full Color 300 dpi
Interpretation opportunities: use doc as rubric, added skill vocabulary, self-analysis or skill refresher.
Linked video demonstrations included in appendix. Streamed via YouTube. Filmed in at-home pole space, appropriate for small or large spaces
