Pole Dancing Classes: Tricks & Techniques

If you are a new or beginner pole dancer, we ask that you complete Beginner Pole Dance: 4 Week Series or a minimum of 6 Pole Dance Fundamental classes before moving on to our more advanced classes. Some students may require more time to build strength and establish their comfort level with the pole. That’s ok!! You may repeat the same level as often as you like.


4 Week Series

  • Beginner Pole Dance

    Skill Level 1: No Experience Required
    In Beginner Pole Dance, you will learn beginner spins, climbs, and standing techniques with the static and spin pole.

  • Heel Techniques

    Skill Level 2: Late Beginner – Intermediate
    In Heels Techniques, you will learn how to pole dance in heels. This course focuses on heel aesthetic and safety to create seamless transitions and fluid leg movements with the pole and on the floor.

    There is a functional benefit to wearing heels while dancing. Heel work originated in strip clubs, and the shoe is symbolic of strip culture. As always, we ask you to be respectful of strippers and the profession.

    In Spin Pole Techniques, you will learn how to control and work with the spin as you climb and create shapes on the spinning pole.

  • Pole Dance Inversions

    Skill Level 3: Intermediate – Advanced
    In Pole Dance Inversions (Level 3), you will learn how to perform more advanced inverted techniques up on the pole. Each course will focus on entries and exits from a specific pole move (i.e. the butterfly). Students must be able to invert from the floor to enroll.
