To me Superman is one of the classic pole moves. It's beautiful, elegant, badass and still causes some pole dancers to cry like little girls from the thigh burn. I had only been pole dancing a few months when I went along to a Jess Leanne Norris workshop my studio was hosting. Most of the workshop was unattainable to me, although it did give me a lot to work on, but Jess did help me get in to my first ever Superman. Strangely she had me do it from Flatline Scorpio. I have no idea if it was part of a combination or if there was some other reason why. For a while I carried on getting in to it that way, until I was taught from a pike. That became my default way of getting to Superman for a long time. I kind of hated superman and the pain it produced to begin with but in time I grew to love it.
I've found with students that there is no specific way to teach Superman, in regards to a way in to the move at least. Some students do it from a side spin no problem to begin with, others can only do it up the pole, some can only ever go from a pike. It's good to have options.
What are your favourite ways in to and out of Superman?
