CLASS DESCRIPTIONS BY LEVEL

 

OPEN

Intro to Pole Dancing 

90 min - $30

This 90 minute primer is prerequisite for all Newby level and group classes. Covering all the basic choreography, spins, and vocabulary used in the studio, this is the recommended starting point for new pole dancers!

Chair 

60 min - $25

Think Burlesque meets Pussy Cat dolls…then add a crazy core and leg workout that you can take home with you.

 

Conditioning 

45 min - $20

If you know what to do but your body just won’t do it, maybe adding an occasional conditioning class is the answer. This class is also great if you’d like a fun alternative to lifting weights, or if you’re looking for that "Pole Dancer" definition in your arms. Our main focus is building the strength that Pole Dancing requires.

 

Stretch 

60 min - $15

Take the time to not only relieve your tight Pole Dancer muscles, but also to improve your Pole Dancer-required flexibility. Taught by our certified yoga instructor, this relaxing class will improve your overall Pole Dancing by widening your straddle and getting your legs as straight as they can go!

 

Cardio 

45 min - $20

This class is great for students looking for a fun workout on their lunch breaks, or an after-work sweat. Only 45 minutes long, we cut right to the chase and we keep moving the whole time. Get your heart rate up, but forget about boring treadmills: This is a non-stop dance party!

 

Burlesque 

60 min - $25

We’ll use props and costumes that create a vintage atmosphere and pair it to music from the Gatsby era. Top hats, pasties, boas and garters, oh my! And of course the timeless art of the striptease!

Polerina 

60 min - $25

At PDP, we’re nostalgic for the days when we would go to ballet class and do bar work. When we would tie up our point shoes and push through the pain, all for the love of the beautiful art form. We’ve found a way to combine this lost love with our new love for Pole Dancing…and with the upper body strength and skills you’ve learned, prepare to take the weight off of your poor old toes and experience a fantastic new style of dance.

 

NEWBY

Prerequisite: Intro to Pole Dancing or to students with previous Pole Dancing experience

 

NEWBY POLE DANCING

60 minutes - $25

A combination of choreography and spins broken down and mastered, the class is

the basic foundation for all the other classes. 

Once students have mastered this class, they will be graduated into

Beginner level Pole Dancing by their instructors.

 

NEWBY ROCK 'N' POLE

60 minutes - $25

Newby Pole Dancing with a little extra hair whipping, and a lot more volume!

Wear your favourite band t-shirts, send us some heavy song requests and get ready to rock!

 

NEWBY FLOOR

60 minutes - $25

If you’d like to prepare for the beginner level choreography, floor work will put you ahead of the game. This class is dedicated to knee rolls, crawls drops and climbs. We do not recommend participating in this class before purchasing a pair of knee pads. They can be found at any sports apparel store in the volleyball section.

*This class is the pre-requisite for Group Floor, which we do with our Pleasers on. 

 

NEWBY SHOES

45 minutes - $20

So you’ve been Pole Dancing and you’re comfortable performing on your tippy-toes...

The next step is throwing on a pair of Pleasers, the Pole Dancing and Strip Club shoe standard! This class will teach the fundamental technique required for Pole Dancing in heels.

If you don’t have a pair of Pleasers or know what Pleasers are, we highly recommend browsing through their website and checking out the hundreds of different styles they offer at www.pleasers.com.
We have a couple extra pairs of heels at the studio that you’re welcome to borrow, or you can bring your own pair from home - just make sure that they’ve been cleaned and that they have a big platform at the front; regular heels are too hard to dance in, and something you’ll learn in Shoes class, is that the shape of your heels actually effects the way we pole dance!
Not sure if your shoes will work? Send us a pic and we’ll let you know!

*This class is the pre-requisite for Group Shoes and must be completed before attending any classes in Pleasers.

*Knee pads are encouraged

 

NEWBY EXOTIC

60 minutes -$25

There is NO better way to work up a sweat than twerking to Cardi B?

Exotic Pole brings additional SEXY choreography into your regular Pole Dancing class. We slow it down and go for that strip club vibe, so go ahead, release your inner hustler!!

Feel free to dress however you like, if that means fishnets, regular gym clothes, short skirts, corsets, or full blown strip club attire!

We will always do this class in low lighting and allow some time for styling with you if you're not sure what to wear. PLEASE send us your 'stripper' song requests, as this makes the class SO much more fun for you! 

*Heels are encouraged

NEWBY CHOREOGRAPHY

Spinning Pole = A pole that spins so you don't have to.

At PDP, we have our 2nd floor studio with 5 static poles and on our 3rd floor we have

one spinning pole that we share for this class. 

The breaks in between turns give us a chance to rest, as you'll feel a little bit dizzy at first.

 *This class will take place on the 3rd floor in The Loft.

*This class is a prerequisite for Group Spinning Pole

 

NEWBY SPINS

45 minutes - $15

In this class, we will pair up and take turns (2 participants per pole). This gives our arms a chance to rest, it also allows us to see our partner attempting the same spins. This is the type of class where we learn a lot from watching each other's successful (and failed) attempts. It's also fun to encourage each other!

*This is the prerequisite for Group Spins

*Located on the 2nd floor
