Learning Gemini (also less confusingly referred to as Inside Leg Hang) is like learning how to read as a child. Gemini is an essential foundational skill that opens the door to a great variety of other moves. We teach this skill as one of our first major pole skills and will begin working on the specific strength and pain tolerance areas right from the first class. In particular, we do not allow “kicking up,” so students must build up enough arm and core strength to do a controlled lift. Just a few of the many moves that we can link with Gemini are Jade, Allegra, Butterfly, and Windshield Wipers.
This one is fairly easy, if you are confident in your Gemini (inside-leg hang).
We will enter from Chopper -> Gemini. Advanced students can learn to get into Marion Amber from Allegra.
Let’s do this (and variations)!
We will enter this move from the following combination:
- Pretty Climb
- Toe Touch
- Dart (optional)
