Why add the 'dance' to pole?

There are literally hundreds of aerodynamic exercises to breakdown, learn and master within vertical pole gymnastics.

Mixing this instruction with any other form of human movement, compromises the integrity of what is being learned.

Awesome fun with a huge amount of content to teach, purely focused on the vertical pole gym skills.

Safety First... students need the actual knowledge required, to understand what they are doing at all times, plus remember the breakdown of individual pole exercises they learn.

Dance or other skills of any kind; are easily added after mastering vertical pole gymnastic skills. 

Personally I prefer to see a person on the pole the entire demonstration, including only a tiny amount of floor work; that connect to pole 'Mounts and Dismounts' only.
