Get yourself a nice crash mat for practicing inversions, and always have a spot to watch you until you are comfortable on your own. This one is a nice thick 5".





Live too far from Oakland CA to take lessons? Check out Studio Veena's online pole instruction. It is quite extensive and very well done.


Pole Dancer Fitness: Build Upper Body & Core Strength at Home

A must for anyone who needs more support with inversions. This simple over the door pull up bar is a fantastic way to not only build upper body strength, but to practice your pike inversion(upside down v-legs) so that you are more confident and graceful on the pole. I highly recommend this product for pole students of all levels.*****

How to Exotic Dance: Instructional DVD's and VHS Tapes
Live too far from Oakland CA to take private lessons in person? Check out Studio Veena's online pole instruction. It is quite extensive and very well done.   The Art of Exotic Dance teaches basic exotic dance in a classroom format with students. Laura Conrad, the teacher, is a former dancer.




Several dancers show you sequences of moves. I liked the first DVD better.


It's Felix Cane-World Champion Pole Dancer/Performer. She is a master-you can't go wrong.



Slinky Rating

Local dancer–good for the ultra nervous novice.

What I said about Felix Cane above...  
How to Erotic Dance Books for Pros and Amateurs from Amazon
Sheila Kelly has brought so much publicity to Pole Dancing. She combines sensual yoga with exotic moves.

Books and Biographies by Exotic Dancers & Sex Workers from Amazon
Yours truly worked with Lily at the Lusty lady (now worker owned!) peepshow in San Francisco many moons ago. The first club I worked at in San Francisco in my very early 20's.

I really enjoyed the humour and depth of this book. I hear it may become a movie to!      
Movies with EXOTIC DANCER Themes from Amazon

This is one of my favorite Stripper movies. Watch the documentary by Darryl Hannah on the DVD.

I am a fan of Atom Egoyen. This movie has tender customer/dancer relations.

Wonderful look at the history of Striptease. Humorous at times.
