ABOUT OUR POLE CLASSES
All classes are limited to 60 minutes. We've found this to be the perfect amount of time for a safe and thorough warm up while maintaining your stamina and focus for your pole practice.
All classes are limited to 8 students, each student gets their own pole. No sharing! Your time and money are valuable and our format allows you to use both wisely so you aren't paying for a longer class time that you aren't able to use when sharing a pole.
Every class combines a variety of mat work and pole work to warm up and condition the body. You will learn at least one new trick, transition, and short sequence of choreography weekly to learn how to put moves together for flow and grace.
Our pole classes are taught in a progressional format. This simply means that completion and mastery of the previous level is fundamental to progress to the next level. We don't push you through levels as we understand that each student is on their own journey to build their strength and flexibility, gain coordination, understanding, and control of the movements and the time that takes varies from student to student.
Our pole classes are multi-level. This allows for greater scheduling flexibility. Everyone learns at their own pace within their own level.
We provide ongoing training. Our Level 6 is an ongoing level in which our highly skilled, master level instructors are able to teach students for as long as they choose to learn. There are always new skills, combinations, and choreography to learn which keep our classes fresh and challenging!
