Today’s tutorial is one of my favourite floor poses, The Mermaid. Don’t be daunted, this is a very pretty trick that doesn’t require huge amounts of flexibility or strength.
I really love ‘bottom third’ pole work, that is using the bottom section of the pole and the floor to make cool shapes and transitions. The Mermaid is a perfect move to add in to your dancing, to help you to find the ‘flow’ and the link between the pole and the floor.
This pose can be a bit confusing so I’ve broken it down step by step so that you can easily understand and master it!
