It is well known in many places that pole dancing requires an external source of torque (i.e. to keep a pole upright, the pole must be supported by the arms). But is there any truth in that?
First the pole must have enough torque (i.e. that it can be used to swing the pole) to be able to sustain the motion of the arms without buckling. This is what is meant when we say “pole dancing is a skill.”
Second the pole must be flexible enough to be used for balancing with it’s legs. Since a pole cannot be used to balance without it’s legs it is important to make sure that this is a function of the pole. In other words, the pole must be able to maintain balance in any direction it is tilted so that the arms can move quickly enough to avoid buckling.
Third if an arm moves slowly under a fast-moving pole as opposed to the slower-moving arm moving with the pole the arm moves faster than the arm would move with a lighter pole. This will mean that the arms move faster than the arm would with a lighter pole.
Now the answer is “no” to all three of these points. In my opinion an arm of a pole should not move as fast as the arm would move with a lighter arm.
This is why most pole dancers only “use” their legs to maintain balance in a straight line.
This does not mean they can only use their legs for balance. They can move the legs at any speed they want because the movement of the legs is important for balance. In essence they can move whatever they want because of the amount of weight they use to balance.
So why would someone use the legs of a pole as a balance point?
For the same reason people use a fork. Even though a fork moves at a slow speed, by using only one side of the fork for balance it is very helpful for holding a piece in your hand without needing to use your hands. In the same way the legs of a large pole (the main body of the pole) will help maintain balance of the heavy weight. It is a very easy way to control the heavy weight without having to hold a piece in your hand.
The question remains: Which pole dance skill would be the worst?
The answer is “you shouldn’t even ask”. While some dancers claim that they have the worst pole dance skill, I have not seen anyone claim this. That
