Class Descriptions

Newbie Pole:

New to pole? Prepare to get addicted! Build the strength and confidence to progress into the open level classes! No experience necessary- every BODY is welcome! In this level you’ll get acquainted with the foundations and fall in love. Short shorts and a tank top suggested.

Mondays at 1:30 & 6:30pm
Thursdays at 6:30pm
Saturdays at 12:30pm

Intro to Pole + Light Conditioning:

This class is about the basics: pirouettes, sits, spins, and low pole work, PLUS some light conditioning to gain the strength to feel stronger on and off the pole. You will learn some beginner choreography, while also putting in WORK.  No pre-requisites required, just a desire to get strong and dance your heart out!

Tuesdays at 6:30pm

Level 1 Fluidity:

Have you mastered the basics, and have a desire to string it all together? This is the class for you! Similar to Open Level, this class is for the Newbies who’ve mastered the basic sit and climb.

Wednesdays at 7:15pm

Innovative Inversions:

Whether you’re a newbie who is looking for comfort in your crucifix, or an advanced flyer looking for unique inverted transitions, this is the class for you! Basic inverted tricks, complex holds, and handstands using the pole! In this mixed level class, we will explore the art of being upside down on and around the pole.

Wednesdays at 6pm

Exotic Dance:

Sensuality-based pole choreography, with a focus on pivoting on the ball of your foot, and sweeping legwork to gain momentum on the floor and around the pole. Learn fundamental Russian-style exotic legwork and heel play! What sets this class apart from old school American stripper style? Russian exotics is about faking flexibility and subtly emoting sensuality from every inch of your body.  Lose yourself in relevé pivots, body rolls, and a little floor work.

Heels are optional. Please bring socks to better pirouette! Pre-requisite: 5 newbie classes or instructor approval.

Mondays at 7:45pm

Liquid Motion:

This is an open level floorwork class. No experience required.
Ever wonder how some people seem to GLIDE across the floor- from bridges to shoulderstands to crawling, and back again? Liquid Motion® is a method of FLOOR flowing and style of movement that teaches total acceptance of one’s physical and mental self. Students will be compelled to focus on their own body’s movement and explore the variations that they can create.
Layers are suggested, as participants will slide and slither. Please wear or bring SOCKS. Kneepads provided.

Tuesdays at 7:45pm

Liquid Low Pole:

Take your Liquid Motion® foundation to the next level! This mixed level class incorporates both the floor AND the pole.
Learn to GLIDE and slither… around the pole! In this class, you will learn to how to incorporate fundamentals from our Liquid Motion® class into your low pole flow to expand and complement your pole dance vocabulary.  Students will be compelled to focus on their own body’s movement and explore the variations that they can create, both around AND at the base of the pole.
Layers are suggested, as participants will slide and slither. Please wear or bring SOCKS. Kneepads provided.
Pre-requisite: at least 3 regular Liquid Motion® classes or instructor approval.
Some pole experience highly recommended, but not required.
TBD

‘Inside Out’:

InsideOut explores feminine sensual movement by reaching deep desires and bringing them to the surface.  InsideOut is a celebration of female beauty, it’s a journey of the soul. Class starts with warm up to delicious songs followed by routine and movement conversation. Appropriate for all levels, but some prior pole experience highly recommended.

Check Mindbody for current schedule.

 

Open Studio:

Open studio/free play. Studio time is chaperoned by a certified and insured instructor. This is an instruction-free class, but safe spotting is offered. Appropriate for all levels, but at least 1 newbie class recommended.

Thursdays at 7:45pm

 

Level 2:

In this class we focus on more advanced movements that evolve from the basic leg hangs, climbs, and sits. You will learn trickier transitions from higher on the pole, as well as developing handsprings and dead-lift strength. We practice power spins and alternate grips regularly (Chinese pole, split grips, and twisted grips), as well as low pole tumbles and baby pole flips. Suggested pre-requisite: minimum of 25 newbie classes or instructor approval. Must be comfortable in leg hangs and butterfly, as well as basic one-handed spins.

Saturdays at 11am

 Open Level Flow:

Pole Art is strength, sensuality, empowerment, and FUN. In this class, we shoot for creating POLE FLOWS/ mini routines based on more intermediate curriculum. While we teach to all levels, it is highly recommended you know your basic sit, climb, and beginner pole inverts before attending Open Level Flow.

TBD

 

All our pole classes are open-level format. What does that mean? That means we will always adjust to the room. Everyone comes from unique backgrounds, has different fitness levels, and will find certain movements inherently easy or difficult, which makes pole dancing subjective to each participant. If a trick is easy because you’ve been working on it, we will give you an edit to freshen it up.

All our Newbie and Open-level classes are fluidity-based. This means we focus on tying the movements together into mini combinations towards the end of class, always moving with intention, grace, and “pretending you meant to do it,” even if you didn’t.
