Should I learn static or spin pole first?

Learning fundamentals on static pole first is helpful because you learn and understand body awareness, body control, strength and flexibility limits while working with the force of gravity.  Introducing a spin to the pole adds an additional force (centrifugal), which you’ll also learn to work with.  Learn on static and once you feel solid, comfortable and ready to try spin pole, introduce it.  Timing is slightly different for everyone.
