Pole Dance Routines

Watch for upcoming classes

  • Not Scheduled

This class is a fun, upbeat course that changes styles each week. We learn a new routine each week, with flavours like Lyrical, Contemporary, Ballet, Burlesque, Chair and Pole and more. We keep it at a level 1 intensity so that it remains open to more students. Our instructors teach what inspires them that week, and you get to experience a little bit of it all.

You must have completed Intro to Pole & Level 1 Pole Dancing to join on this one, as moves from these classes will be included. Higher level students will find this helps build their coordination and enjoyment of Pole – even if it is not as physically demanding. Done in bare feet or socks, not in heels. Knee pads may be required for some sessions, great to have a set on you for every class just in case.

Pole Cross Training

Starting the week of April 7

  • PoleGa – Wednesdays 8pm
  • Strength & Conditioning – Wednesdays 7pm

The best results for our students come from doing a few hours of pole-related workouts a week.

One hour of Pole a week will mean a slow progression towards attaining Pole Goals. But if you add in Some PoleGa (Pole & Yoga together) to increase your flexibility, mobility and joint strength, or some Pole Fit to improve your overall strength and conditioning for Pole Specific skills, you will notice improvements in your Pole Skills much faster.

You can book a whole series or single classes.
Intro to Pole class is a pre-requisite
