Pole Class Descriptions:
8 Week Intro to Pole Series - Everyone is strong enough, sexy enough, and the perfect size enough to take an intro to pole class! This is THE best place to start. Learn sexy moves and the fundamentals of how to do a spin and a climb. In Intro to Pole we take more time to break things down to create an environment that's easy to learn in and free of intimidation. You're welcome to take Intro as many times as you'd like! Heels recommended (it’s easier than you think. You’ve got the pole to hold you up!) Wearing shorts above the knee and no lotion will help you stick to the pole and learn brand new pole tricks!
6 Week Beginner 1 Pole Series - This is what comes after the Intro series. You will learn a different spin and a climb (and reviewing what you already know) in every class while stringing them together with sexy dance moves. It's a great way to practice a multitude of spins, climbs and transitions between dance moves. Heels are recommended! *|Prerequisite: Intro to Pole or equivalent|*
6 Week Beginner 2 Pole Series - Similar to Beginner 1 Pole you will learn a different climb and a spin in each class but amping it up with combo spins and more strength building climbs. Beginner 2, like most classes, always includes a dance element to help improve and enhance quality of movement while on the pole. Heels are recommended! *|Prerequisite: Completion of Beginner 1 Pole or equivalent|*
4 Week Beginner Poleography Series - Combining choreography and tricks on the pole! This introductory series will concentrate on learning and adding on to one routine throughout 4 weeks, allowing time to master the moves!

Kneepads required. Heels suggested. (This series will sometimes incorporate chair & pole together!) *|Prerequisite: 4 Intro to Pole Classes or equivalent|*
4 Week Inversion Series - Once you’ve completed Beginner 2, this is a great series to delve into. It’s focus is on all things upside down! The pole invert is the basis of almost all upside down tricks. It's very important that it's done with control, and done safely. In this six week series you will work on your basic invert, and different inverted trick variations. Come spend class upside down! *|Prerequisite: Completion of Beginner 2 or equivalent|*
4 Week Floor Play Series - Slinky, liquid Goddess of the Floor! Floor work is an important part of a well rounded pole dancers' repertoire. This class will focus on all those amazing moves you see dancers do on the floor that makes your brain freak out. How do they do it? We will teach you! Shoulder rolls, kip up like movements, sexy, slinky slithering, transitioning from standing to the floor and back up with liquid ease. All Levels Welcome.
Beginner Pole Tricks - Foundations - Dive deep, practice, repeat and build upon your repertoire of pole "tricks". The key to nailing your moves is repetition. This class is great for learning to make unique, pretty shapes with your body on the pole! It's also great for perfecting beginner spins, spin combos, climbs and building strength and conditioning for inverts! Have the opportunity to practice moves on spin pole and static pole. *|Prerequisite: 4 Intro to pole classes or equivalent|*
Intermediate Pole Tricks - Dive even deeper into the world of pole "tricks." Work on multiple tricks and pretty shapes in succession. This class is perfect for really nailing intermediate spins and spin combos, climbing moves, and inverts on spin and static pole. This class will help you build your strength and technique to perfect your favorite tricks. Feel free to suggest moves you'd like to work on! *|Prerequisite: 4 months of Beginner Pole Trick classes or equivalent|*
Beginner Spinning Pole - Foundations - This class is suitable for students who have some experience with static pole spins, climbing and basic holds. Spin pole feels very different to static. We must first learn how to control our bodies in motion, speed up and slow down. Initially this will be a new challenge for your muscles and coordination. In just a few weeks you will develop a strong grip and increase upper body strength. The Spin Pole may make some skills feel easier as the spin generates a dynamic energy that will assist you in the air when transitioning. In our fundamentals class we will cover spins that are unique to spin pole, vertical tricks, mounts, dismounts and condition for inverting! *|Prerequisite: 4 Intro to Pole classes or equivalent|*
Intermediate Spinning Pole - For all our frequent flyers this level is a fun world of tricks and strong spins performed mainly from a climb or inversion. There is so much beauty in spin, the motion transforms simple shapes into spiraling spectacles and the feeling is like dancing in the sky with the odd moment of pole friction. This class will focus on conditioning and fluidity which enhance control and develop graceful technique. *|Prerequisite: 4 months of Beginner Spin Pole or equivalent|*
Beginner Pole Flow - Like pole tricks but LOVE choreography? Then this class is for you! Beginner Pole Flow focuses on the dancing and movement aspect of pole. Get slow and sexy, and delve into the sensual side of pole to find your own personal style! Whether you are new to pole, or have taken classes - all are welcome! We're going to break down all those hip movements, body rolls and footwork using choreography each week so you can focus on getting in the groove! *|Kneepads required - heels recommended|*
Intermediate Pole Flow - This is a more advanced choreography based class for anyone who wants to start working on turning their movement in to butta, practicing the often over looked transition moments or for those of you that prefer dancing on the pole as opposed to drilling and nailing tricks. This class is all about finding your ooey gooey, yummy like butta movement quality. *|Prerequisite: 4 months of Beginner Pole Flow or equivalent|*
Intermediate Poleography - This class combines choreography and stringing together multiple tricks while you dance it out!
