If you're looking for a great resource to learn more pole dancing moves , Pole Essentials by Goddess Star Monroe (gotta LOVE that name!) is a must have. This beautifully photographed manual is a complete guide for the beginner to advanced student.
It's also an excellent teaching resource, as it breaks down the moves and illustrates each one, so you can better explain them to your students.

Just one of over 70 tricks
you'll learn in Pole Essentials!
In addition to showing and describing some amazing pole dancing moves , the lovely Ms. Monroe (pictured at right) also includes a section on body principles.
These are simple but very helpful tips that will bring greater awareness to your practice, helping you look and feel more graceful, and reduce your potential for injuries
Also included is a short list of "tricks and tips" to help you get the most out of your workout. These include suggestions for suitable clothing, a recommended practice plan, and what to expect as you work through the inevitable bumps and bruises that most new students experience.
While DVDs are excellent for getting the live action angle on pole dancing moves, an illustrated book like this one is a perfect supplement to your training.
It allows you to really take your time, read all the details and nuances, and study still shots so you can get a better feel for where everything goes, and what your body positioning should be.
For starters, it's not only an instruction manual filled with over 70 pole dancing moves, it's an easy-to-use reference to when you just want to look something up quickly. No more fast forwarding through your DVDs or trying to remember which sub-menu that trick is listed in.
In addition to detailed instructions on how to perform each move, Ms. Monroe has also included her own notes to help you with your practice.
There are also inspiring stories from some of today's top dancers, teachers and performers.
Plus, a juicy resource section will help you find your way if you're looking for additional information on anything pole-related.
There's even a fun quiz to help you discover your own "pole personality!"
