Classes and Levels
Pre Reqs: Nada…. come to have fun as see what’s possible. Shorts highly recommended ( we need that skin to we can stick to the pole!)
What is this pole thing? How does it work? This is where to start your pole journey. We’ll go over the basic techniques that are used at all levels and well as teach some basic spins and tricks. If you’ve never done pole this is where we advise you start so you can have a good understanding of the terminology that we’ll use around the studio. You can stay at this level for as long as you feel it’s helpful, and when you’re ready to take those tricks to the next level…move on up!
Knowledge of inside/ outside
Basic twirls ( dip, back hook, fireman)
Some spin experience
In this level we’ll start to learn some more complicated tricks, spins, and climbs as well as connect them into some combos. Things are getting harder yes, but that just means you’re getting stronger! Trust up nothing is out of reach, it all just takes time. This is also the first time we’ll work on those dreaded inverts and leg hangs (yep were going upside down). Feeling like that’s impossible? Don’t worry we all did at first and you won’t be alone.

Oh oh…..I feel like your pole addiction is getting really real now. You know all about pole kisses and maybe even have started to relish that feeling of your skin on the pole (maybe….) More importantly you made it over that first invert hurdle! Now it’s time to see what crazy shapes you can do upside down and build even more strength and flexibility with all the grace and pointed toes in the world I’m sure. Other than building on all the spins and tricks you learned in Beginning, we’ll get you shoulder mounting, and moving in and out of brass with ease and start the journey towards handsprings and ayeshas ( we also have a class just for that).

Dance and More
Class begins with stretches and a warm up to get us ready for an hour of dance! A bulk of class is focused on learning intermediate-level, original choreography to popular Indian music from all different regions of India (some routines feature mashups with Top 40 songs to add to the fun)! In order to build confidence, retention, and muscle memory - two consecutive weeks are dedicated to each routine. Students are not required to attend both classes, but are encouraged to get the most out of the choreography. Every class ends with performing the routine for each other in a fun, judgement-free environment! No prior dance experience needed - class is open to everyone! Recommended attire: anything that you can move in and makes you feel confident, athletic shoes, knee pads (optional, as some classes will contain floor routines).
