Pole Classes

Foundations (Beginners)

Always wanted to try pole but don't know where to start? Get a taste of all of the dance styles that pole has to offer with this taster class. Here, we'll start with a cardio dance warm up, practice flexibility movements and break down basic spins. Then we'll develop floor work, choreography and freestyle - everything from body waves to shoulder rolls. Each class ends with climbing preparation drills.

 

L2 - Beginner Plus

Perfect what you learned in L1, while also incorporating leg hangs, cupid, basic invert, and climbing variations into your pole dance lexicon. We'll begin to build the foundation for intermediate pole moves such as butterfly, shoulder mount, and caterpillar climbs. Pre-requisite: Ability to climb to the top of the pole.

 

L2/L3 (Adv. Beg./Int.)

This L2/L3 bridge class is meant for students who have been taking L2 for a little while but want to push themselves to work on progressions for L3 tricks. Students should be able to perform a clean inversion off of the floor, and be ready to work on shoulder mounts. The instructor will break down pre-advanced tricks into small pieces so that advanced beginners and intermediate students alike will receive progressions of the same move. Get ready to work!

 

L3 - Int/Adv.

L3 is meant for the intermediate-advanced level pole student. You should be able to do a clean shoulder mount from the ground and be working on aerial shoulder mount and aerial inversions. We will also condition handspring variations from the ground. 

 

L4 - Advanced (Pre-Professional)

L4 is our most advanced level and L4 students tend to have multiple years of pole under their belts. In order to join L4, you should feel comfortable performing an aerial shoulder mount, backbend hold on the ground and a handspring hold. L4 students will focus on lines, combination creation, and advanced level tricks.

 

Booty and Boudoir (All Levels)

This is your sexiest workout of the week so break out the booty shorts! You'll learn how to drop it like it's hot and booty bounce with the best of 'em. We'll work through fun, burlesque and hip hop-inspired combos on and off the pole. Feel free to bring your favorite pair of heels and leg warmers for this class or borrow some from the studio.

 

Inversions Bootcamp

Build a solid foundation for your aerial journey. Inversions Bootcamp is the bridge class between L1 and L2. We will work on climbs, inverts and knee hangs while focusing on technique and building endurance. This class is for anyone who wants to solidify their aerial basics.

 

Low Pole

(Re) discover the bottom third of the pole in this low pole class. So often, we jump over the lower third in order to perform death defying drops and tricks. In this low pole class, we'll explore movement such as spins, floorwork, handstands and more, redefining the use of the lower third. 

 

Pole Choreography (All Levels)

Learn new choreography to the songs that you love the most! This class is open level, but not for first time pole students. Here, we focus on infusing your tricks routine with new floorwork, spins and body waves. Dance styles include contemporary, hip hop, lyrical and ballet-inspired. Feel free to bring your favorite pair of heels for this class, some knee pads and leg warmers or borrow from the studio.

 

Russian Exotic

During this class you will learn a choreographed dance routine in a dynamic, thready, and flippy style. This class will help you learn leg waves, thread throughs, weaves and floor twists and drop splits. We will focus on combining more advanced pole techniques so this class is recommended for L2+ leves. Learn to slink and slither the Russian way! Heels and knee pads are strongly encouraged.

 

Spin Pole (Mixed Level)

Pull out your pins! We'll work on progressions of spin pole movements in this class. Whether you are learning basic spin inversions and flow or practicing your latest flip trick, this class is multi-level. In each class, we'll learn a small combo combining an ascent, trick, transition and descent that we'll dance out at the end of class.

 
Silks Classes

Aerial Silks - Beginners

This aerial silks class is for everyone from first timers to intermediate students! In this class, we'll begin with conditioning movement on the ground and on the silks, work flexibility and then hop on the silks to learn climbing skills, inversion foundations and 2-3 new tricks in the air. Please wear leggings and a bodysuit or a shirt that you can tuck into your pants. 

 

Aerial Silks - Intermediate

This aerial silks class is for intermediate students! In this class, you'll build upon foundations learned in the beginner class and begin to work on drops, rolls and intermediate movement such as wheeldowns, beats, and teardrop climb.

Lyra Classes

Intro to Lyra: (Beginner/L1)

The lyra is a large metal aerial hoop that hangs about 5 feet off of the ground. This class is designed for people who are brand new to lyra. The main focus of the class is to help students build strength and flexibility to properly mount the lyra and maintain balance through core conditioning and active flexibility exercises. Additionally, students will learn to invert and move through various low bar poses in the lyra such as Lady on the Moon, Mermaid, Posse, Arabesque, and many more. Progressions will be offered as students master each pose!

Attire: Please wear yoga pants, a tank top, and socks to make sure your body is covered during the class.

 

Intermediate Lyra: (L2)

In level 2, students will continue building core strength and flexibility and begin learning more advanced mounts and poses. We will explore balancing in the hoop, and move through splits, drops, and rolls. Students will also begin working on poses on the high bar. Students may also try poses on a spinning lyra. This class is appropriate for students who can properly invert low bar and are comfortable with all the basic mounts.

Attire: Please wear yoga pants, a tank top, and socks to make sure your body is covered during the class.

 

Advanced Lyra: (L3)

In level 3, students will incorporate dance and choreography in their movements and work on smooth execution of more advanced poses, transitions and combinations on both high and low bar. Students will also practice combinations and movements involving momentum and may also work through movements on a spinning lyra. This class is appropriate for students who can properly invert low and high bar.

Attire: Please wear yoga pants, a tank top, and socks to make sure your body is covered during the class.

 
Floorwork Classes

Flying High: Leaps and Jumps

We all love floorwork transitions in our pole routines, but if you want to expand your dance vocabulary and learn new leaping tricks to spice up your performances then this is the class for you!

Each week will focus on a ballet, jazz, or contemporary dance leap. We'll start with a warm-up that focuses on increasing strength and flexibility required for the leap and then break down the dance steps and movements that lead into the leap. Finally we'll explore progressions for all levels that will lead to the full expression of the jump.

 
Chair Classes

Hott Seat! (All Levels)

Dust off those heels and strap yourself into the Hotttt Seat as you transform your metal chair into a sturdy partner. This floorwork-based chair dance class is sure to get you conditioned and learning new choreography. Stick with it each week, as we build choreographed dance and flow to a new song every few weeks. Knee pads are recommended. 

 
Acroyoga - Mixed Levels

In this class, we'll be connecting with others, and learning about alignment and technique.
After a thorough warm up, we will be covering basic static positions. We will also cover fundamental vocabulary and various Acroyoga roles. This is the perfect environment to learn how to be a kid again, and gain strength and flexibility in the process!

No partner needed. If you are an experienced flyer, this is a great class for you to learn how to base!


(Examples of static AcroYoga poses covered in this class include: Bird, Back Bird, Star, Reverse Star, Side Star, High Flying Whale, Folded Leaf, Bat, etc.)

 
Handstands Classes

Intro to Handstands

Newbies welcome! In this class, we will progressively build foundational skills for a solid and comfortable handstand. Using partner drills and solo work, students will increase the flexibility and strength necessary for finding a stable handstand line. As students get more comfortable on their hands, we will begin to add creative movement to increase their stability and confidence in a variety of handstand shapes. Students who can comfortably hold a handstand will work on presses, more challenging shapes, and other dynamic entrances into handstand. This is the perfect class if you are working on your handstand or trying to build the skills for a solid handstand!

 
Flexibility Classes

Flexibility Training (All Levels)

Our flexibility classes follow a beginner's contortion style of training. This is not a yoga flow. In this class, we will train active and passive flexibility starting with a hip opening warm up, moving into side splits and straddle work and finish with 15 minutes of dedicate back bending. This is an all levels class from first timers to intermediate students. We'll work on beginner contortion poses like stag split, standing split and more.

 

Flexibility Intensive

Ready to take your flexibility training to the next level?

Join us for our Sunday morning Flexibility Intensive where we'll work on advanced stretches and traditional contortion poses. This two hour class includes splits, backbends, conditioning, and inversions. Students should be comfortable holding their split for 40-60sec (even if it's not yet flat), pushing up into a bridge by themselves, and be ready to explore new shapes. This is an intermediate stretch class, prior stretching experience highly recommended.
