Click a class below to read its description. If you are unsure about what class to be in, why not give us a call and we can help you work out the best level for you.
Each pole dance class is carefully designed to make you a well-rounded pole dancer. We ensure you have the strength and flexibility to perform each new pole move by incorporating conditioning, strength and stretch into each class drawing on a combination of dance, gymnastics, yoga and pilates exercises.
We always start barefooted with a warm-up on a yoga mat. Then depending on the class, we put on our heels (or stay barefoot) and get ready for the fun to begin! Each class consists of a warm up, pole tricks instruction, learning your routine, and a warm down. Each term you will learn a routine that combines all the new moves you have learned, with the option of performing it at the end of term for your friends and family.
At the end of term, your teacher will tell you if you are able to move up to the next level. It's expected that you will repeat some levels, especially as you get to the higher levels, because there are so many skills to learn in pole dance that often one term per level is not enough to fully master the skills you need or to build your strength and flexibility for the requirements of the next level.
