You made the decision to purchase a home dance pole. Then where do you start?
Is my location appropriate?Always useful to first examine whether the space you wish to use as a needle dance room is actually suitable to place a dance pole. That's how you measure it's high enough, you want to be able to invert. Also, you want to be able to turn and there is generally a minimum spinning circle of 1.5 meters for that. Besides, you want a hard floor. And as a ceiling, you wantconcrete (geeee gipsplate),wooden porters or a special construction. Once you've examined this, you can choose what kind of assembly system you want. Also, if you have plaster records, there's a solution for it. You read that further down the road in this blog.
How do I confirm the pole? The mounting system has roughly two options: a clamp pole or a pole that you set by drilling. A clamp pole simply clings between floor and ceiling, you put this clamp;) This pole is often supplied as a building package and consists of several poles. But also posts tailored can be supplied with a clamp system. The great advantage of a clamp system is that it often has a margin in height, for example from 2650mm to 3200mm.Often you can buy yourself an extension to go to higher altitudes.That means you can use that pole in multiple locations, in multiple spaces. Another plus point is that a clip system is easy to set up and rebuild with every use. You can also leave a clip system pole for a longer time, provided you provide good maintenance (return regularly and turn it apart monthly to prevent the parts from getting stuck). What is also very fine with clamping is that the floor and ceiling remain in tact (also when used intensively). Perhaps after a number of years you will see a light circle on the ceiling (color difference as with a painting) but dat is het.
In addition to a clamping system, you can choose a dance pole in the floor and ceiling drills. Each brand has its own advice on what height it is wise to switch to drilling from. Thus Xpole indicates a height from 3350mm to use a 'locator pin'. This pin is drilling into the floor and the pole is attached to/on it. The top is then fixed with some screws, which will ensure greater certainty. If a clamp system isn't tight enough, it can fire loose. By drilling, you prevent it. If you put the pole on this way, it's fixed. If you use the pole by use In addition you can choose a 'mount' which you drill into the ceiling. In this mount, you can then stick the pole and clamp it between ceiling and floor. Using a mount allows you to set up the pole easily by use and clean it up again. You can also combine a mount and a locator pin. Best ask your advice from the supplier before you actually order.
Pales with a drill attachment are usually tailored. Well, the downside is that you're stuck to that particular size. The advantage is that the pole is delivered in one piece, which will provide more solidity and an entirely smooth finish. Pales consisting of multiple pieces have a seam where these parts are attached to each other. Most dancers don't feel anything about that, but a single is clearly preferred to a one-piece pole for that reason.
You got plaster plates, right? Then you can choose a stage. Then pay close attention to how high the pole is including the height of the stage. You won’t be the first to read how high the pole is and then find out that it doesn’t fit just because the stage plates have to go under it as well. Most suppliers can also provide a lower pole so that the stage can be used inside low spaces. The great advantage of a stage is mobility. You can train with it outside, for example! The disadvantage is that the pole feels unstable and moves more during use, because the top is not fixed.
What kind of material dancing pole do you choose from home?It's like you're just walking into a candy store for the first time in a country you've never been before. There's a world open to you and there's so much choice! RVS, brass, chromium, silicone... actually, you just wanted to buy a dance pole, but now you don't remember. What's the best material for me now?There's fallingunfortunately notsimplyto say, this pole must be you! That's a matter of trying out.Every person is different, that money for taste, but also for the skin type. Each skin type reacts differently to the different materials. War for one to gain the perfect grip is for the other a straight one dia down. that you choose. To make it easy, your skin also responds to different climate conditions (warm, cold, humidity...). Sometimes choice is limited by an allergy to chromium or other sensitivities.
What thickness of dancing pole do you choose? There are several sizes in thickness ranging from 40mm to 50mm. Measured, a different size can be made, but looking at what kind of dance poles Flexmonkey sells, sizes are between 40 and 50mm. In the Netherlands, the most popular sizes are the 42.5mm and the 45mm. A somewhat wider grip i often a little more pleasant for the leg clamp techniques and a somewhat narrower grip can often be finer for the hands. This, too, depends on personal preference and on the size of your hands. Below are a number of tips to get to the choice of material and thickness for your dancing pole for home.
* Ask what kind of poles are used in the studio with you. Often it is easy to choose the same material and size.
* Once follow a lesson in another studio where other material or other thickness is used. You can compare it better, you can also ask if you can test at someone's house.
* Think about what purpose you want to practice at home. You want to end up joining the NK Paalsport or an international competition? Then it may be wise to align the material with what is used on that contest as a competition pole.
* Watch out with powder coat. So tempting all those beautiful colors and more grip sounds like a dream, too. Remember, the more grip you have, the straw some techniques like turning go. Also, drops can be dissuaded due to the emergence of burns and transitions can go less smoothly. Separately: The more grip the pole offers you, the less you get it from your own power. And you want to train that right?
* Make sure you have optimal conditions at home.To give training at home a fair chance, make sure that the space is not too cold and not too hot, has enough humidity and a ventilation capability. You provide a clean pole and clean skin and regularly clean the pole while training. Also zorg you for a good warm-up of yourself and the pole. This is important to get a good grip.
