Level Pole Dance Classes
LEVEL 1 POLE ESSENTIALS
*minimum 3-5 classes required before moving up to Beginner Pole Dance
This essential class is the perfect introduction to pole dance & sensual fitness for absolute beginners. Learn the language of the pole, such as holds, basics spins, dance moves and conditioning, with an emphasis on injury prevention. We incorporate beautiful, low impact floor work to help build upper body and core strength while promoting flexibility and confidence. All of our floor work moves become an integral and necessary part of the dance element in future levels.
BEGINNER POLE DANCE
Once you have your essentials down (minimum 3-5 Pole Essentials classes)and feel comfortable with your basic pole techniques, holds and spins, we begin preparing for inversions and climbs, as well as a whole set of new spins, combinations and freestyle dancing. You will need to bring a pair of shorts to this class and leg warmers are optional, but always fun!
You must be comfortable and confident with your inverts, handstands and climbs before moving forward into Intermediate Pole.
