Back On the Pole: Conditioning
There quite a few aspects that are unique to pole that are hard to train at the gym or at home. Just to name a few: coordination around a fixed point, seeing the world upside down, and pain tolerance in our tender bits such as under the arms and tops of the feet. Additionally, we want to keep safety in mind as we are all trying to regain our strength after weeks off due to the chaos that the world has been thrown into. This is the reason for Back on the Pole: Conditioning. This class is designed to get people who have previously pole danced to regain their strength, pain tolerance, and mobility back safely through conditioning exercises on and off the pole. We are currently suspending the use of mats and props, so we will be using the pole as our only equipment. If you are someone who does not have a home pole (or it has been collecting dust for many weeks/months), and used to be a part of a regular pole class, then this is a good class for you to ease back into a pole practice. This class is 90 minutes and $20. Pole shorts are required.
Back On the Pole: Conditioning Class Times
**Note: Must have at least 3 people signed up for class not to be cancelled. If you have signed up for a class and it is cancelled, we will call you to reschedule, or refund you the full amount. If you try to sign up online and are not able to find the signup, that means we have reached our max amount of students, or have cancelled that class time for that day.
Open Studio is usually known as an extra practice time for pole dancers. Since many people do not have poles at home, we offer our poles for you to use for the hour. This is a time to really work through the skills that you have learned in previous classes at your own pace. No instruction is given during this time. Inverting is not allowed without instructor approval. If you are part of a regular class, or have been pole dancing for a number of months and want an extra hour to really solidify your skills, this is a good one to sign up for. $10/hr
Intro to Pole is our most basic class. In this class, we teach you the very fundamentals to help you transition into our beginner classes. All the skills taught in this class have at least one foot on the floor to help you with balance and coordination. This class can be taken as many times as you feel comfortable. The same skills will be taught in every class. This is great for if you want to try it out first, and then invite your friends, knowing what to expect. Comfy clothes are appropriate, shorts are not required. Yoga pants or sweats are fine. $10/class
Open Studio//Intro to Pole = Open Studio + Intro to Pole. Typically, when we host either an Open Studio or an Intro to Pole class, we will get maybe one or two students in class, so hopefully in this way, we can avoid cancelling either class for not meeting the 3 person minimum. As instructors, we will be able to teach newbies the basics of pole, instead of awkwardly trying to hide in the office while people are practicing in the studio. We will put up a studio divider for the self-conscious dancer/newbie. When signing up online you will be asked whether you are planning on using the space for personal practice (Open Studio), or signing up for the Intro class.
