Never taken a pole dance class before? Start with Pole Dance Fundamentals to learn basic movement patterns, proper alignment, and balanced muscle development. Pole Dance Fundamentals is also recommended for students with less than 8 weeks of pole dance training, or who have practiced inconsistently.
Pole Dance Fundamentals
Pole Dance Fundamentals is your introduction to pole dance. This class is geared toward students with little to no pole dance experience, or any dancer looking to refresh their knowledge of basic techniques. In Pole Dance Fundamentals, you will learn foundational poses, walks, floorwork, spins, climbs and more with the static pole.
If you are a beginner pole dancer, we ask that you complete a minimum of 4 Pole Dance Fundamental classes before moving on to our more advanced courses. Some students may require more time in Fundamentals to build strength and establish their comfort level with the pole. That’s ok!! You may repeat this class as often as you like.
Spin Pole Techniques – Starting May 1, 2019
Spin Pole Techniques is your introduction to the spinning pole. In this class, you will learn how to control and work with the spin as you climb and create shapes on the spinning pole. This class will build on the techniques established in our Pole Dance Fundamentals class, and is open to all dancers with prior pole dance experience and instructor approval.
Pole Dance Spins & Flows
In Pole Dance Spins & Flows, you will learn how to move fluidly with and around the pole. The instructor will teach a combination of progressive spins, low flows, and floorwork. This class will build on the techniques established in Pole Dance Fundamentals, and is open to all dancers with prior pole dance experience and instructor approval.
Pole Dance Inversions & Tricks
In Pole Dance Inversions & Tricks, you will learn how to safely invert (go upside down) and transition into and out of a range of tricks up on the pole. This class will build on the techniques established in Pole Dance Fundamentals, and is open to all dancers with prior pole dance experience and instructor approval.
Want more time to breakdown a combination? Determined to get into a new pose on the pole? We also offer one-on-one, private pole dance training sessions.
Additional Workout Options
At our studio, we encourage you to develop a well-rounded exercise routine. While all pole dance classes include stretching and toning of the body, we also offer a targeted group exercise class to help you reach your specific wellness goals, prevent injury and correct imbalances off the pole.
Mat Work: Strengthen & Stretch
Build strength and flexibility off of the pole. Using Pilates principles, this mat class focuses on strengthening the muscles in and around the core – your abs, back and hips – and stretching the common tight areas of the body, so you can move more efficiently. Exercise equipment and props may be used to add challenge and variety to the workout. This class is open to all students.
