What is Pole Dancing?
Pole dancing is a form of dance that mixes traditional dance like ballet with strength and contortion elements, leading to a gymnastics-like exercise. The apparatus is a vertical metal bar with a 45mm diameter affixed to the floor and ceiling. The poles can be stationary (static) or free spinning on ball bearings (spinning).
Pole dancing can be circusy and done by all ages and genders, but it is best known for its erotic roots and dance style. We don’t currently offer any erotic pole classes (and therefore have a minimum age requirement of 12), but students are welcome to use pole heels in class and add a sexy flair to their own dancing.
Do I Need Previous Experience?
You do NOT need any experience to come to our intro level and beginner level classes. You do NOT need to be “in shape” nor good at dancing. Pole dancing is designed to be a fun workout whether you stay on rhythm or just keep moving for the whole class. You will always learn faster than someone and slower than someone else. All that matters is that you’re having fun.

Intro to Pole Series
This is a 4 class package that introduces you to Pole dancing. This is the best place to start for anyone that has never done pole before and is interesed in exploring something new. Each class will build on the previous week's class so by the end you will feel comfortable with Pole dancing and can join the Pole 1 classes.
Each of the 4 sessions will start with a 10 minute warmup, some pole specific strengthening exercises, specific Pole skills, and some time to practice before the instructors lead you thorugh a cool down. Throughout the series you will learn Pole terminology and a few flowy sequences that you will be able to put together into a routine including dance moves, transition moves, and spins. At the end of each class there will be a little time for freestyle, where the teacher will lead the routine combining all the learned moves and you can follow along, add your own flair to the routine, or let your dance creativity flow by doing your own thing.
Don’t have aerial equipment at home? Don’t worry! You can practice at the studio during Open Studio. You won’t learn any new moves from an instructor, but you WILL have 1.5 uninterrupted hours to spend some quality time with a pole.
Private and Semi-Private (2-3 People) Sessions
Private and Semi Private sessions are one-on-one with an instructor. You can use this time to improve on specific skills, have more attention from the instructor, and/or to gain confidence in your skill set so you can advance to a more advanced level. You can do a lot in an hour when you don't have to share a pole!
Beginner Pole adds to what you learned in Intro to Pole. Fundamental moves are practiced each class on a rotating schedule, ranging from dance moves, transitions, spins, poses, and even some beginner-friendly inverting moves.
To move from Pole 1 to Pole 2, you must have at least 15 moves solid on both sides and have a 5 move routine done to music.
Pole 2 builds on Pole 1, taking the rotating schedule of fundamental moves to the next level and teaching harder moves including basic inverts. Everyone in class will learn how to spot inversions as a part of class.
To move from Pole 2 to Pole 3, you must have at least 15 moves solid on both sides and have a 5 move routine done to music.
Pole 3 adds to what you learned in Pole 1 and 2. Fundamental moves are practiced each class on a rotating schedule and you learn 3+ new moves each class, ranging from dance moves, transitions, spins, poses, and inverts.
To move from Pole 3 to Advanced Pole, you must have at least 15 moves solid on both sides and have a 5 move routine done to music.
Celebrate anything for any reason any time! Parties are great, aren’t they? Come take a pole class with all of your closest friends. You will learn a fun and sexy (or not sexy) little pole routine with your friends. No drugs or alcohol before or during pole (food and non-alcoholic drinks are fine), a maximum of 8 people is recommended.
