Pole dancing builds strength and flexibility while building on your dance skills and confidence. All classes are progressive, the tricks you learn in beginners assist your strength and co-ordination for your tricks in Inter 1, and so it continues all the way through until Advanced. No matter what your previous dance, gymnastic or sporting experience, all new students who haven't pole danced before must start in beginners. You may need to repeat a level once, twice (or a few times!) - as long as you're having fun and continuing to build your strength - we're happy!
See below for an overview for our different levels!
All students new to pole dancing start with the Beginners term. These classes are designed to introduce you to basic spins and manoeuvres around the pole, as well as dance and movement. It works on building strength and range of moves that can be performed with time and practice. Attention is also given to building upper body strength and flexibility all of which contribute to gaining pole skill.
Once you are feeling comfortable with your moves from Beginners, you can enrol for Intermediate 1! This course revises pole skills gained in the previous course, whilst moving on to moves requiring strength and agility such as inverts and more complex manoeuvres, combined with dance and pole combinations.
Once you've nailed your invert from the floor, it's time to move up the pole! Intermediate 2 is for those students who have completed Intermediate 1 and are ready to be challenged with a variety of inverts, climbs and spins - building strength and flexibility throughout the course!
Intermediate 3 is a challenging, aerobic and complex level which is for students who are feeling completely confident with their Intermediate 2 course moves! Complex long combinations, tricks requiring flexibility and strength and a challenging routine, Intermediate 3 is a equal part difficult and rewarding course!
