1. Dark, Slow and Intense
This is my personal favorite style of music for pole dancing. I love dark melodies and performing really slow, intense routines to match the music and tell a story at the same time. The style of this music may be slow, but it has an edge that perfectly matches my style of pole dancing.
2. Heavy Rock
Heavy Rock is classic pole dancing music. Especially bashing guitar riffs and key changes. With a little creativity, the choreographic possibilities are endless!
3. Romantic, Slow and Sensual
Romantic, slow and sexy songs are another type of classic pole dancing song to perform to. Many modern pop songs have lyrics that are pertinent to pole dancing, twerking or other forms of sensual movement.
4. Vintage and Retro
For something completely different, try a vintage or retro song from yesteryear for a fun and unique routine. These songs will add a touch of glamour to your workouts, as we travel back through time to the golden age of glamour and class.
5. Dubstep and EDM
If you like the rave style, there’s a a selection of Dubstep, EDM and Electronica songs that are perfect for pole dancing routines!
6. Psychedelic / Trippy Music
These songs will give you some creative inspiration to add some storytelling – and maybe a touch of weirdness – to your next pole dance routine!
7. Seasonal Fun
When it comes to Christmas or Halloween, it’s fun to create some seasonal routines.
And, for Halloween…
