Most people have an idea of what to expect at a pole dance class... you walk into a room with a bunch of mirrors and poles. You warm up, learn some tricks on the pole, maybe a little choreography set to an eight-count and cool down. But what about a sensual embodied dance class? I'm here to shed a little light on the two! While both forms of dance can be physically challenging and empowering, they have distinct differences that make them unique.
Embodied dance is a form of movement and dance that focuses on connecting the mind, body, and spirit. It emphasizes the flow and expression of movement rather than rigid choreography. This type of dance is a self journey. It's about finding what feels good in YOUR body! Embodied dance is all about exploring your own body and movement, and expressing yourself through dance.
On the other hand, traditional pole dancing classes are also a great way to get a full-bodied workout, boost confidence and feel sexy!
So, what's the difference between embodied dance and pole dancing? While both forms of dance can be empowering, embodied dance is more focused on the internal experience of movement and the dancer, while pole dancing is more focused on the external expression of movement. Embodied dance is about connecting with your own body, sensuality and emotions, while pole dancing is about performing for an audience (even if that audience is just yourself!).
At the end of the day, both embodied dance and pole dancing can be great ways to explore your body and express yourself through movement. Whether you prefer the fluidity of embodied dance or the performance of pole dancing, there's a class out there for everyone. Want to try an embodied dance class? Join my next S Factor Taster!
