I have been pole dancing for several years and perform many feature shows as a result. I bought this DVD because I was told that it was good for advanced pole dancers and thought it might give me something new to try.

The overall tricks are impressive and unique. But I have to admit that they do not always show you the most graceful or easiest way to get into position or carry out a move.

My two biggest issues with this DVD is that...

1. The camera is often focused dead center of the pole. There are MANY tricks that you can not see her feet or her complete grip. This annoyed me to no end. I can not understand how such a crucial issue could have been overlooked! You almost have to just guess where her feet are at times. So it makes trying to follow the instructions rather difficult.

2. They do not show ANY dismounts. They show you how to get into the tricks but they do not show you how to safely get out of them! Many of the tricks that are being shown on this video can not be dismounted in the same way they were mounted. I suppose they just expect the viewer to hang there and try to figure it out for themselves. ???

I would also like to add that the performance footage that they show at the beginning and end of the video are performed on a spinning pole, yet the instructional breakdowns are performed on a stationary pole. Holding your position and the amount of momentum needed to work on a spinning pole is COMPLETELY different then that of a stationary. They should have completely avoided any footage of the spinning pole as those tricks will not look the same on a stationary one.

All in all...it is always entertaining to see Pantera on the pole. So if you are a fan, definitely buy this DVD. But if you are looking to actually learn and perform these tricks for yourself....find another DVD or get a private teacher! Poletricks 101 is not worth the money.

Well, this girl is amazing - love her tattoos. As far as the instructional aspect goes - I wasn't too happy with the way they showed the moves. A lot of times her whole body isn't in frame so it is a little confusing to catch how her feet are placed. This is definitely instruction for the more advanced pole dancer. I also thought that they could've shown more moves.

I'm surprised this is called POLE TRICKS 101 because the majority of tricks are very advanced. She's quite the amazing pole dancer, though I find her a bit scarey with those body tattoos, pierced nipples and platform stilettos. This is definitely not your pole dance as exercise DVD. (I would recommend the very thorough KT Coates 2 DVD's. Check her out at [...]). Still, Pantera is a pole phenomenon and I admire her athleticsm.
I like the red arrows that show you where to apply pressure to the pole but the shots are often cropped too close and you miss important details. Other key pieces of info are also missing (such as how to get into an advanced pose before an even more advanced pose). And she doesn't cover transitions at all. Maybe we're to assume that'll be covered in POLE TRICKS 201? If there is one, I don't think I'll buy it.

I have been taking Pole dance classes for 3 years and wanted a safe at home DVD to practice some pole Tricks. This is not a "101" basic DVD! The camera cuts out the dancers feet and hands so you cannot see how she is placing her feet for the moves. I did purchase Dr. Amy's Pole Workout Volume 2 and was so happy with my purchase!! Only buy this DVD if you are a little more advanced and are familiar with the moves!!

This DVD offers some advanced moves that neither Pole Katz or A Pole Lot of Fun are prepared to teach. In this respect, Poletricks 101 is for the more advanced. The instruction is very clear and the instructors themselves are energetic and passionate. A quality production.

This is a wonderful DVD if you are looking to learn tricks that are absolutely stunning. Moves are more advanced and require pre-existing knowledge of what you are doing on the pole. Even though there are a lot of advanced moves, even someone with intermediate experience can take a little something from Pantera. Lots of wonderful moves to aspire to-afterall, practice makes perfect!
