The Fan Kick, also known as the Windmill, looks like a leg trick but it is really a trick that demands core strength. This is a great move to practice and perfect before going on to learn inversions as it helps you to learn to lift the lower body with the use of the abdominals.

This move also helps to strengthen your hand grip as well as learn to use control in doing a pole trick. The key to control is strength. If you find that you need more core strength here are some excellent exercises that will give you more strength in just a few short weeks.

Remember, they are strength training exercises and you need at least one day of rest for your muscles to recover in between.

This pole dance move requires that you engage all of your muscles, including your leg muscles while you keep them extended to give the move the fan-like motion and look.

Here is a how-to video clip:

Tips for Learning the Fan Kick

Tips:

  • Don't hang from your arms and kick your legs
  • Engage your abs, suck in your stomach; remember this is an AB trick, NOT a leg trick!
  • Practice the hand placement shown in the video
  • Keep your hips in front of the pole
