Freestyle is when you're not tied to a pole routine, a set of moves or a choreography. It's not just for pole dancers, either (although it can be). Freestyle pole dance is more of an approach to movement. In freestyle, you get to be creative with your movements and learn new ways of expressing yourself through movement that can't be taught in any other way. 

You'll become more connected to your body. 

When you freestyle dance, you'll become more connected to your body. You'll learn to listen to it and feel its movements while dancing. This will help you become more aware of how your body moves and what kind of movements come easily. It also teaches us how we can use our bodies more consciously by moving them in ways that are appropriate for the emotion or feeling we want expressed through dance. 

It's a great way to get in touch with yourself. 

Freestyle is a way of expressing yourself, and it can help you find out more about yourself as well and totally get lost to the music. You might not realize how much you know about yourself until you start freestyling, especially if it's something new for you! It might not seem easy at first glance, but once the music starts playing and the moves come naturally...you may just find yourself surprised by some of the things that come out of your body. 

Freestyle helps you learn more about yourself as a dancer and brings out new skills and figures.  

In freestyle, there are no rules or standards to follow. So if there's something that feels awkward or uncomfortable while dancing (like a new flexi-trick), then why not just try it? You might discover that this small change makes all the difference in your performance and makes everything look smoother than ever before! 

Freestyling also gives you freedom from having to worry about mistakes or failure or to compare to others - which is often one of the biggest barriers for people. So dare to be creative let it flow and combine new skill & tricks.  

Freestyle pole dance can help you get in touch with your own style and express yourself more fully. 

Freestyling is actually a great way for you to express yourself more fully and in a way that's unique to you. It furthermore gives you the freedom to be creative. It encourages you to find your own style (sexy, sporty or sensual) because you don’t dance someone’s choreo and might figure out what really brings joy to you. Give it a try and turn on your favorite playlist and do whatever feels right in the moment. You will be surprised! 

I hope you have found this article helpful, and that it will inspire you to reach your pole dancing goals by freestyling more often! I know that when I'm feeling stuck or unmotivated, the best way for me to get back on track is to turn off my head and just dance!
