Well let's face it, pole dancing is a vertical sport.
A big part of that sport involves hoisting yourself up, spinning around, even hanging upside down by your ankles.
So it only seems reasonable to expect that the average woman interested in the sport would want to be able to do these tricks at some point.
But if you're a plus size woman, this type of thing may seem out of reach, at least for now.
So if gravity defying tricks aren't your cup of tea, you're probably looking for a DVD that teaches fun and sexy floor based moves rather than airborne tricks.
And if you do aspire to become a pole trickster, good on ya!
If you're wondering which DVD might be best for a plus size woman, I hope this section of my website will help you find something challenging, yet do-able given your own unique size, shape and fitness level.
I'll be adding more pole dancing DVDs suitable for plus size students as I learn about them. If you know of one that's not listed here, please send me the title and any additional info and I'll get it listed right away.

A Pole Lot of Fun's Pole Dancing For Real Women was one of the very first pole dancing DVDs made, back when there were only a handful available.
It's now out of production and many people feel it's far too simplistic nowadays, but if you need to start at the very beginning, it's actually great!
Also from the A Pole Lot of Fun folks, Salsa Pole is a Salsa/Pole dance fusion DVD.
If you enjoy the dancier aspects of pole dancing, you'll probably like it because it uses mostly "on the ground" moves.
There's one spin, so it's very do-able by larger women who don't have the strength (or desire) to get airborne.
Pole Cardio is an entirely "land-based" pole fitness DVD that's specifically designed to be used as an aerobic exercise program.
Unlike most instructional DVDs, it's taught in a single sequence, just like a fitness class. Except it's on your dance pole!
Great for cardio conditioning while learning easy moves.
Remember to let me know of any other pole dancing DVDs suitable for plus size women, and I'll add them to this page.
