Don’t let your tiny room size ruin your home pole dance experience! You can have your dance pole in a closet if that’s where you need to put it. But here’s a good way to measure a basic minimum space for your pole. Stand in the center of the area where you want it. (Make sure you have found your ceiling stud and let that be your guide for the center point and diameter measurement.) Step slightly away from that center point and then stretch one leg out. There ya go! That should be as small as you can go if you want to do pole tricks that are of a moderate variety. For bigger flying tricks you will need a bit more space. Of course you can go smaller, but you will just have to stay aware of obstacles. Also, if you add 6″ high dance shoes to the mix that is another factor to consider.
My ceiling at home is only 7′ 6″. Today I tried to install a Kendra Wilkinson pole by X-Pole and I couldn’t! I have installed it before at other houses that have 8′ ceilings and there was never an issue. But the extensions are either too long or too short for my shorter ceiling. I know I have an unusual situation, but I can use my Lil Mynx original with no problems.
