I’m delighted to share another tutorial with you all. This one is what we call the ‘inside leg roll’ here at IPDA; it’s an old classic ‘bottom third’ pole dance transition. This move is achievable for any poler at any level, and in future tutorials I will share more advanced variations of this move.
Though this move is achievable for all, it can be easy to get confused and not understand where momentum is coming from.
Here’s a little checklist of the key points to consider while working on this move:
- Ensure that the pole is at rib level as you lie beside the pole
- Lift your hips high, into a shoulder stand to begin the move
- No need to place the inside leg high on the pole, as long as you get it in at the back of the knee
- Use your outside leg whip to start off your momentum and continue your spin by rolling on your bum and moving your upper body in the direction of the spin
- You can place the inside hand above the inside knee once your bum reaches the floor
Watch the video below for a full step by step breakdown of the inside leg roll:
