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

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.

Wednesdays at 6:30pm

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.

Thursdays at 5pm

Pick-Your-Trick:

Do you have a pole trick you’ve always wanted to learn? Learn how to properly and safely execute it or learn the steps to make it happen! If you do not have a specific trick in mind, we will give you something to build upon ! Instructors will provide a warm-up and make rounds to help each student work on their trick of choice during class. We will also offer simple transitionary movements in and out of your trick. Appropriate for all levels, but at least 1 newbie class recommended.

Thursdays at 7:45pm

Exotic Dance 101:

Sensuality. Being sexy on the pole requires dancing for someone you love: yourself. Lose yourself in relevé pivots, body rolls, and a little floor work. Learn some fundamental exotic transitions to and from the pole and floor.

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

Mondays at 7:45pm

Intro to Pole + Light Conditioning:

Just as there is RESTORATIVE yoga, there is restorative pole! The in-between moments are just as important as the tricks. 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 to find the rhythm and DANCE, while also putting in WORK. No pre-requisites required, just a desire to move!

Fridays at 6:30pm

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

 

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 it 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.
