    is there a list or a list with pics of moves somewhere? one of my instructors doesnt know the names of many of the moves or uses alternate names (ie she didnt know the name of the chopper/ inverted v position)- so b/c of this i dont know the names of many of the moves.
    (for static pole) Spins: we have learned ferry, flying pole cat, ronde hook (not sure how to spell that), chair, carousel and the candy-cane and the one where you spin around knees to nose, horizontally to the floor (i cant even remember the name to that one). Are there more spins that arent just a variation of these basic ones?

    Try checking out

    I think the spin you’re talking about with the knees to the nose is the craddle.

    wikipole is good b/c it should have variations of the names. You can also try Vertical Dance, KT has pics of all the moves and poses. Im not very good w/names but as soon as you show me the move, I remember.

    I bought a book of elements on amazon, called the 424 elements, but i have a hard time trying to use them along with veena. Many of the names are completely different and when i search this site sometimes don’t even find that name. Ex. Pendulum, but i know it’s something Veena does. I can’t really use the book, cus half the time I can’t fingure out how to get into that position, so i hope to have Veena show me.

    That’s too bad the names are so different. At one point the pole community was trying to unit and have a lost of names that were standard. I was part of it at first, not sure what ever happened. Would have been nice. I try to use descriptive names.

    There is also the PDC (Pole Dance Community) Syllabus. When you register on the PDC Website, you can download the Syllabus. Otherwise, I uploaded the Syllabus on my google drive, so you can download it:

    The moves are listed by level. I use it too on my phone as app (it’s paid but not expensive). You can work through the levels and use Veenas lessons as instruction.
