Pole dance and pole fitness are used interchangeably in order to describe a movement that empowers men and women, allows them to be free of inhibitions, discover and explore the abilities of their bodies and build self confidence and esteem. Many types, shapes and sizes of people are drawn to pole because of all it has to offer. While some pole dancers focus more on athleticism and raw strength to achieve those desired power moves, other dancers focus more on flexibility and grace in order to create an art that undeniably and unequivocally allows them to become other worldly. What will you style be? What will your art look like? Join the class that’s right for you and find out.

Description: A puzzle-based class where students will be given individual tricks or combos and be tasked with the challenge of discovering unique entrances and exits, as well as transitions into other tricks on their own. Entrances/exits, transitions, and variations will be discussed before and during to help students build a greater understanding of not only how to build phrases on their own but also so they can slowly discover their own personal “flow” and intuitive movement while expanding their pole vocabulary.
