In Pole 2, we’ll develop strength and condition to start going upside down, inverting to outside and inside leg hangs. We will develop new movements such as crucifix, teddy hold, side climbs, and jasmine.
Pre-req: Ability to climb to the top of the pole and perform a floor “inversion”
Pole L3 is meant for students who can perform a clean inversion from the ground, and hold both an inside leg hang and an outside leg hang from one knee, hands free. Students in L3 will work on tricks such as shoulder mount, spin pole ascensions such as side climb and half bracket hold, reverse grab variations, and extended butterfly variations.
The instructor will break down these intermediate tricks into small pieces so that advanced beginners and intermediate students alike will receive progressions for their movement.
Pole L4 is meant for advanced level pole dance students. Pole L4 students 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, shoulder mount variations, brass monkey and ayesha descents.
Build a solid foundation for your aerial journey with this Inversions Bootcamp class.
Inversions Bootcamp is the bridge class between Pole Foundations and Pole 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.
In this beginner to intermediate level Sexy Choreography class, we will learn exotic dance choreography incorporating slow movement around the pole, transitions to the floor and floor work. Think body waves, heel clacks, splits, and slinky leg waves. This class will help you learn control, coordination, and proper execution of dance elements. By the end of class we’ll have developed 45 seconds to 1 minute of choreography.
In this Intermediate/Advanced Pole Choreography class we will build choreography to a song. We will work on flow, thread throughs, and incorporating new dance elements into our movement. We’ll develop extension, musicality, fluidity and incorporate elements such as kips, rolls, throws, dynamic spins and pirouette variations.
Heels optional, knee pads required
Pre-req’s: Basic invert from standing, minimum 6 months choreography classes, forward and backward shoulder roll
Calling all tricksters! Bring your pole resolutions to class and your instructor will help you breakdown the fundamentals to unlock success. In this all levels Tricks Clinic class, we will work on some of the latest tricks going around the internet to build our repertoire. Each class will end with a freestyle dance.
We will spend the first half of class on strength and conditioning drills – everything from push-ups,corework, and other ‘form building’ floor work, to dips, balances, presses, and some progressions towards controlled dynamic skills.
To ensure safety, extra close attention is paid to proper form and technique in this class, because as with all the aerial and movement training the risk of injury is greatly increased by improper body mechanics.
The latter half of the class will be spent developing traditional skills, and working through combinations both static and spinning.
This class is intended to introduce traditional straps techniques to students with an int./adv. level practice in another aerial apparatus or pole.
This Beginners Aerial Silks class is for those brand new to aerials. We’ll begin each class with conditioning movement on the ground and lower third of the silk, developing the core work, flexibility and strength needed to move safely up into the air. You’ll learn how to climb up the silks, wrap foot-locks and transition to positions and tricks in the air. You’ll also work on inversion preparation and may even incorporate a drop.
Please wear leggings and a bodysuit/tight fitting top
In intermediate aerial silks, you will build upon the foundation movements learned in Beginner Aerial Silks. We’ll work on inversions in the air, wraps in and out of egg-beaters, single star drop, saltos and tricks such as Rebecca Split and Music Box.
Prerequisite: Ability to climb to the top of the silk
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.
In Lyra L2 you will expand your movement vocabulary and learn tricks on different parts of the hoop. You’ll learn dynamic movements such as beats, rotationals, and rolls; will learn moves on the high bar and span set; and will develop your own movement style through combinations on the hoop.
Newbies, intermediate, and advanced students 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, including headstand, forearm stand, shoulder stand and handstands.
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 trying to build the skills for a solid handstand!
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 cardio warm-up and moving into hip opening, side splits and straddle work. Class content may include partner stretching and strengthening, bandwork and will incorporate shoulder mobility training and 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 dancer’s split.
