Our Classes

01

Pole
Fit

Each pole fitness class consists of a warm-up, strength conditioning exercises, pole tricks and/or spins instruction, and a cool down. Pole fitness is a full body workout that builds on your fitness, tone, strength, endurance and flexibility. It demands an incredible amount of coordination and balance – learning to control spins, holding your bodyweight in the air, and performing a routine will strengthen muscles throughout your body, including your core strength. It releases endorphins, builds confidence and self-esteem in a warm and supportive community.


Never tried pole before? Sign up for a trial class, exclusively for first timers where we will show you all the basics! For experienced polers looking to join us, check out our “Classes” page for a breakdown on our levels.

Flow

Learn contemporary dance inspired sequences combined with freestyle play, designed to increase your pole movement vocabulary while also focussing on musical and emotional connectivity.


Improve your fluidity, sense of musicality, lines, and expression with the use of dynamic and contrasting movement on and around the pole. Learn to combine moves into one beautiful flowing piece, while most importantly developing and adding your own individuality!

Exotic

The sensual side of pole dance, with a focus on elements of dance, musicality, fluidity, seductive movement, base work and low flow. This discipline explores graceful flows around the pole, intricate transitions, refined movement quality and acrobatic elements.


We teach different Exotic styles at the studio e.g. Exotic Hard (technical, hard-hitting, fast and aggressive movements), Exotic Flow (smoother, often slower) and Exotic Old School (raw, classique, stripper style). It demands endurance, flexibility and strength and allows you to tap into your sensuality, build confidence, body awareness and lots of ATTITUDE.
