A pole dance teacher teaches you how to move your leg, hips and body around the pole. I teach you how to go and stand, how to sit in a chair, how to bend your back and put your arms behind your back.
Do I need a partner?

If you do want to be able to climb up a pole without the assistance of a partner, then you must be able to balance on an uneven surface with a heavy weight on your legs so that you can get up the pole. You cannot jump up a pole.
