Pole Fitness Classes

Class Descriptions are as follows. Please check for level pre-requisite requirements.

Intro to Pole

Intro to Pole is designed specifically with those new to pole fitness in mind. This class provides the basis for movement, with walking, pirouettes, basic spins and learning how to sit on the pole. There will be a strong component of strength training in preparation for the transition to Pole 1.

>> Recommended at least 8-10 classes.

Pole Level 1 – Beginner

Pole 1 builds on the basics taught in Intro to Pole. There is an emphasis on spins, climbing and body movement while sitting on the pole.  You will also begin to learn basic sequences and becoming comfortable moving continuously around the pole. This class is designed to increase strength to prepare to invert on the pole. Recommended at least 4-5 months.

Pole Level 1 and 2 – Beginner to Intermediate

This class is for students who are on the edge between levels, or just want some extra practice time with a mix group of students.

Pole Level 2 – Beginner to Intermediate

Pole 2 uses the strength that has been developed through Intro to Pole and Pole 1 to begin to defy gravity. Inverting on the pole offers a full body workout, with greater emphasis on building abdominal and upper body strength. Beyond learning basic inversions and climbs, this class draws on the spins and movements learned in Pole 1 to start putting together more complex sequences. Recommended 4-6 months. Advancement with instructor approval only.

Pole Level 3 – Intermediate

Pole 3 continues with increasingly more challenging inversions. As new inversions are mastered, students will learn how to transition between inverted positions without first returning to the ground. This class will also introduce different grips for inverting, more advanced climbs, kickstands and handsprings. Advancement with instructor approval only.

Spin Pole Level 1 – Beginner (no inversions)

Take your moves and put a spin on them! In this class you will become comfortable with the spin pole, practicing the basics while getting used to the new movement and strength that Spin Pole requires. You will also begin to learn new ways to move up, down, and around. This class is for students who have been taking level 2 for at least 4 weeks or have instructor approval.

Spin Pole Level 2 – Intermediate (aerial inversions)

Move your spins up a level! This spin class takes you from the ground level to aerial spinning technique. You will learn more advanced moves and combinations. Must be able to safely invert. Inversion level 2 pole students and up or have instructor approval.

Pole Combinations and Transitions – Level 1

This class will focus less on the spins and tricks themselves, but more on creating fluid movement as you transition from one move to the next. Concentration is on body awareness, extremity use, and grace. Take what you know and begin to form beautiful and seamless combinations. Levels 1 and above.

 

Pole Combinations and Transitions – Level 2

Take you fluidity to the top! Here you’ll combine tricks into sequences smoothly and gracefully using all levels of the pole. Instructors are open to suggestions, so bring your ideas and we’ll help you put them into action. Level 2 inversions and above.

Free Style Exploration

Express yourself! Dancing is not just about the moves, it is about the story and emotion behind it. Through a series of exercises, you will explore the emotional side of pole dancing, and learn to open up and tell stories that will excite, surprise, and connect your audience with you. Recommended Level 1 and above.

Sensual Pole

Explore the sexier side of pole. Bring you heels, let your hair down, and learn how to bring out your sexy self. Using a short routine, you will learn the steps, moves, combinations, and floor work involved in sensual pole. Recommended Level 1 and above.

Liquid Motion®

Liquid Motion® is a program that teaches how to achieve a seamless and natural movement quality by applying basic dance theory, sensual movement, self-exploration, and body awareness. Through employing and exploring these techniques, both on the floor and pole, you will develop more fluidity, creative combinations, and individual style. We suggest dressing in layers (fitted pants, leg warms, long sleeves, knee pads) for a more comfortable movement experience. All levels are welcome.
