Routines in pole dancing vary in degree of difficulty, starting from the basics for beginners to the more advanced and complex moves for intermediate and expert pole dancers. Moves basically revolve around spins, climbs, floor work and inverts, to name a few. If you observe closely, many professional dancers use basic moves and just infuse their own improvisations into it to make it look more complex and difficult. Some even make their floor work more dramatic and sexier by adding their own variations, improving the transition from one move to the next pole routine.
