Low flow pole

Low Flow is a choreography based pole class. We will begin with a 15-20 minute warmup, then move into a step by step breakdown of your choreography. Low flow will utilize the bottom 3rd of the pole, as well as basework and floorwork. You’re choreography will consist of fluid movement around the pole, and may incorporate beginner/intermediate level tricks. Low Flow will also give you a strong foundation in musicality and how to set movement to music.

Exotic Pole

Exotic Pole is a choreography based class where we will explore strength and sensuality through a mixture of flow, hard hitting movements, and exotic tricks.

We will begin with a quick warm-up to prepare our muscles to lengthen. Depending on the class, we will then continue to work on lengthening the muscles in either our neck, shoulders, and back; or both side splits, middle splits, and pike position.

Pole Levels Guide

Level 1 Pole

Level 1 Pole is for students who have already taken an Intro to Pole class or have been pole dancing for less than 6 months. This class will take you through our signature mat warm up, followed by a bit of climb and invert conditioning. In this class, we will begin to learn level 1 pole tricks from the ground or 1 climb high and put them together to create a beautiful, fluid pole sequence. At this level, we do not invert.

Level 2 Pole

Level 2 Pole is for students who are comfortable with inverting from the floor. We will begin class with out signature mat warm-up and conditioning. For the remainder of class, we will focus on inverting, shoulder mount prep, leg hangs, different types of climbs, and begin to learn tricks that require inverting from the ground. This class may be taught with either static or spin pole, depending on the instructor.

Level 3/4 Pole

Level 3/4 Pole is for our aerial inverters. We will begin class with our signature mat warm-up followed by conditioning. At this level, we will focus on creating trick sequences in the air. This class will also include aerial inverting, aerial shoulder mount prep, and handspring prep. This class may be taught with either static or spin pole depending on the instructor.

*We highly recommend you do not attempt this class without a crash mat.

What to wear to class

As a pole dancer, it is a necessity that you have enough bare skin to help grip the pole. It is recomended that you wear something along the lines of a sports bra and short shorts. Other outfits that work well include swimwear, body suits, and leotards. If you would like, you may also wear dance heels. Our favorite brand is Pleaser USA. To start, we recommend a 7″ heel height.

For non pole class, any form of comfortable, stretchy athletic wear will do. A T-shirt and shorts or leggings will do just fine. No footwear is required.

What not to wear to class

  • Please refrain from wearing any sort of lotion. It will greatly hinder your ability to grip the pole and can become dangerous if attempting new moves.
  • Do not wear rings or other loose jewelry. Dance poles are made from very strong material and can easily bend or break your jewelry. Hand and wrist jewelry can also scratch your beautiful pole so please leave them off!
