Triangle of CreativityMay 04, 2022
When do you feel your most creative? Is it when you feel stressed and anxious? Definitely not. That tends to stifle creativity.
The triangle of creativity is a pole play cycle. The more you can have fun while dancing or teaching, the more you feel like you're in a state of flow and the more you can spark creativity. The cycle fuels itself and becomes something powerful-- creative energy. Your students can recognize when their Pole Teacher is energetic while teaching and feed off that energy to create a really fun atmosphere. The energy of the class will be high when you're in the cycle of creativity.
How to start the cycle and apply creativity to our classes? Give yourself time and space to play. Explore and feel inspired to create. If that means going into the studio to play before you start teaching, do it! It can also mean spontaneously creating fun pole routines, combos or sequences for your students in the middle of class.
There are so many ways you can up your class energy and fun by adding special moments that are not often experienced during standard pole classes, like interactive games, partner play and more! The best classes I've taught have been from creativity that sparked in the moment.
How can you use your imagination to get creative with new ideas to bring to your classes?
