Oh hey bestie! Our top pole dancing essentials.

Oh hey bestie! Our top pole dancing essentials.
Without a doubt there are some things that are totally essential in life – Lano Lips, AMBR trackies and peanut butter (crunchy of course!). When you start pole dancing classes, you quickly realise that the pole world is no different. There are so many different things – most of them sparkly – to help us become the best pole dancers that we can be.

Pole wear, pole dancing grips, pole dancing heels – we are so spoilt with choices now! To make life easier for our AMBR Angels, here are our top pole dancing essentials that should be in everyone’s pole bag.

Shoes, glorious shoes
Well this is a no brainer – sparkly, colourful, gorgeous heels and boots which make our legs look longer and our sass levels grow stronger. Sometimes pole dancing tricks can be challenging and we totally understand that you need to remove all distractions when learning new pole combos. But on the days that you just don’t feel the vibes, popping on a pair of 8-inch shoes can make you feel like the total boss we know you are!

Enviro Grip
Say goodbye to sweaty hands in pole class! Finding the best pole dancing grip can be hard and everyone is different but no matter if it’s summer or winter, our go-to pole grip is Enviro Grip.

Enviro Grip has created a unique liquid chalk formula to help reduce sweat and increase grip on your hands to better your performance. Apply a couple of drops to your hands before or during pole classes and watch how your grip is transformed! Enviro Grip makes it so much easier to hold onto the pole as
you do tricks and spins. We LOVE it! The formula has a subtle vanilla scent and can be washed off your hands with warm, soapy water. Studio owners will be happy to know that it also doesn’t leave any sticky residue on the pole making it easy to clean the pole, which also means that it’s pole competition friendly!

AND just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, 50 cents from every bottle of Enviro Grip sold goes straight to charities who work to conserve our planet. Enviro Grip comes in a biodegradable bottle and is delivered in compostable packaging. So, you really are helping our planet one pole trick at a time!

The Pole Physio
We might not be able to fit them in our pole dancing bag, but The Pole Physio team are definitely essential in keeping us on the pole! Simone Muscat is the owner & founder of The Pole Physio Australia, aerialist and APA Titled Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist.
