Introduction to
Pole Dance

Beginners, this is the place to start! This class will focus on basic skills such as hand grips, pirouettes, grounded moves, and spins.  Strength exercises are incorporated into class to start building up the abs and arms for more advanced pole maneuvers. Flexibility, strength and fun are the focus of this class. Once you are comfortable here, move on to our Beginner Pole Dance Class. 

Beginner Pole Dance

While we recommend you start in Introduction to Pole Dance, you may also start here. This class is designed for Beginner Pole Dancers to gain strength and flexibility. Spins, grounded moves, conditioning, and climbing will be the focus. Once you can climb and spin on both sides and are starting to practice inverts, you can move on to Intermediate Pole Dance.

Intro To Heels

This class will go over how to walk in heels, basic choreo components and beginner pole moves, plus plenty of floowork. It's a great place to start if you're interested in doing a Hell on Heels class but want to get comfortable with basic skills in heels before you move on to choreography. Taking a few beginner pole classes prior to this course is recommended since it's easier to learn something in bare feet before trying it in heels!
