You can dance around your leg without the heel because it’s the way to balance. The height of a pole dancer’s leg isn’t important. The heel is only important because it helps propel the pole into the air.
But what exactly does that mean? That’s part of the art of pole dancing. You don’t need to get into math to figure that out. A pole dancer’s leg is about an inch and a half. A foot is about a foot. A half. So it’s basically the same length. It can rotate on or off, and even roll, when you have the right balance. So yes, she doesn’t need a heel to balance her legs. In fact, it’s more a question of knowing your body, because I’m not even sure her ballet shoes need to be made of leather.
So if you think she needs one (I wouldn’t advise it), go for it. If you’re happy with the heel, go for it. If you don’t know whether that’s necessary and just want to be free to dance, then don’t go for it. If it bothers you, just don’t do it, I think the world will forgive you, but this question is really about pole, not footwear, so be careful. As always, feel free to ask me in the comments below or email me.
What if you’re a child who can’t put weight on a pole?
The best position for a child to hold, even a 4 year old, is at the bottom using the front end and foot. In other words it’s a “toe up” position. If it’s a problem, just look into some good ones like those used by American Ballet Academy or Ballet Canada. Some are designed with a wider toe. Some are designed with one or two fingers in for better control and others have one or a few fingers in that make it more dangerous when using the toes. The height of the feet and the angle of the leg, for example, makes it difficult. In practice, when I have children who can’t hold the pole up with the front end or their toes, I just have to walk them forward onto another pole without the front end and toes. I don’t have to hold that weight, so I don’t have to worry about it. If I have to use the hips to balance, I just have to push forward on the weight, and when I get to the other end the children do just fine.
