CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

ONLINE CLASSES
Unless otherwise mentioned, HOME POLES ARE NOT REQUIRED FOR ONLINE CLASSES
 
FLOOR WORK

A huge part of Pole is actually performed on the floor around the pole. In Floor Work we will learn the smooth transitions from spins to floor work and different methods of traveling on the floor.

Knee pads are required and Pleasers are welcome!

SHOES TECHNIQUE

Your Pleasers have finally arrived...YAY!!!

Next step (pun intended) is learning how to get the most out of them.

Shoes class will teach you tricks for feeling sturdy your feet, how to use your platform, where to avoid placing weight and how to land those spins without rolling an ankle.

*For online Shoes class a chair and knee-pads are required

CHAIR

Online Chair class is the saving grace for pole dancers in lock-down without a pole.

We have 2 styles: a fun flow class that we do in flat feet, or a Chair Choreography class with Pleasers (any heels will work and song requests are encouraged).

Be sure your chair is sturdy and high enough if you're dancing with heels on.

 
FLEXIBILITY & CONDITIONING

This is the class that will save you from feeling like you took a 6 week break off of pole when we return to the studio! Since we can't work on spins, we need to maintain and increase the strength the spins require...we're talking about that pole defenition that was starting to appear on your arms. We'll also work on getting those toes 'actually' pointed and enhancing our splits.

BURLESQUE

Just because we can't leave our house, doesn't mean we can't get dressed up in costumes, do our hair and throw on our fishnets! This class is a studio favourite, and just like our in studio version, we'll be learning a short choreography in costume, so layer up in a button-down shirt or jacket that you can remove.

The best footwear for Burlesque is a low, chunky jazz heal (avoid Pleasers and stilettos)

*Song requests encouraged

CHOREOGRAPHY

Technique is great, but it's not the same as dancing. Let's keep your memories sharp and practise some fun routines at home while we're stuck here!! If you can find a doorway, chair, kitchen sink or stairs in your house, we can make a fun choreography using any of them!! This class will be completely different everytime, depending on where we decide to dance and vidoes will be pre-recorded and sent out to students in advance to become familiar with. Taking location and song requests!

STUDIO CLASSES
To resume once provincial lock-downs have been lifted
