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.

Which class is right for you?

Beginner Pole: Suitable for the returning pole dancer or those that have never had the pleasure of taking a pole dance class in the past! This class is a great fit for anyone new to an exercise program all the way to the avid exerciser. Gain confidence while learning the basics of pole dance.

Intermediate Pole: For the pole dancer who is working on inverting, already inverting safely, has been pole dancing consistently for a minimum of 6-12 months or is returning to pole dance after a short hiatus. Intermediate pole focuses on progressing the dancer in strength moves, body grips, flexibility as well as reviewing the foundations of pole dance such as spins, transitions, etc.

Advanced Pole: Instructor permission is generally required in order to participate in any advanced pole class. Students must be able to safely invert and shoulder mount from the floor, aerial invert whether by lifting hips over head or a controlled descent. Advanced pole students will continue to progress strength moves, body grips and flexibility as well as work on/learn deadlifts, handsprings, hand grips, etc.

Stretch: Get bendy! Literally….Learn how to get that flat split, wear your feet as a hat or sit on your head. Whether your split is a foot off the ground or you’re already flat and working on oversplits, this class is geared toward all levels.

Pole and Floor: This class is a mixed level class, although you are required to have taken some pole in order to be successful. In this class, students will learn to combine floor work, low flow and pole work together. Learn how to get on and off the pole in order to transition seamlessly between both the floor and the pole.

Body Grips: Discover how to hold onto the pole without relying on your hands! In this class, we will use our knee pits, thighs, elbows, hips and generally leave our skin on the pole in order to achieve beautiful shapes.

 BUTI Yoga: Buti Yoga workouts transform your BODY + SOUL with cardio-intensive bursts of tribal dance, primal movement + conditioning woven into a dynamic yoga practice. *Courtesy butiyoga.com
