Learn the Pole Dance Basic Spins

Pole dance basic spins bring beauty and grace into your routine with all that whirling, twirling centrifugal motion!

Spins are the of some first pole tricks that beginners will learn and you can actually make a whole pole dance routine just out of spins and transitions.

Check out these pole dance move guides to help you learn the names of pole dance moves, spins, tricks and poses.

Here is a basic list of spins that I have found with basic learning instructions for each and most have a video that demonstrates each move.

The names are being standardized by the Pole Fitness Association and other groups. Some of the spins have been called by names other than their currently accepted standard name so I have tried to include those variations as well.

You can also access the FREE Pole Dance Community syllabus that contains over 250 beginner pole moves, spins and tricks of all levels. 

Note: This is by no means a comprehensive list but I have tried to include all of the most common ones here.
