These are the main technique classes to learn techniques in and around the pole, to control the pole and to control your own body. Lift your spirits and learn new tricks and choreographies, all while building strength, flexibility and endurance.
Pole technique classes are offered in 5 levels:
- Novelty: (absolute) beginner on a lower pace then Beginners 1, with more personal attention – when having injuries, insecurities or any reservations novelty is advised upon.
- Beginner 1: (absolute) beginner on learning the basic spins and inverts – also suitable for first-timers.
- Beginner 2: if you know and control the basics – example tricks in this level: swan spin and (extended) butterfly.
- Intermediate: for those who control Beginner 2 spins and inverts and have an established level of strength and flexibility – example tricks in this level: jade, ayesha and handspring.
- Advanced: For those who control intermediate tricks and want to build on – example tricks in this level: dragontail and deadlift.
Please note that Intermediate and Advanced levels are, at first, combined in one class to assess demand. Once demand rises, these levels will be taught separately.
Basically, the abbreviation of “pole” and “choreography”. In these classes, you’ll be taught a new choreography every few weeks. The choreography will be based on a certain dance style and will feature the pole. This way both floor work and pole moves will be combined in one class. Dance styles include, but are not limited to, modern, lyrical, hip-hop, and classical.
This class is suitable for all levels.
The best-known power moves in Pole are the deadlift, human flag, Iron X and shoulder-mount. Yet, also moves like air walks or brass monkeys involve lots of core stability and (shoulder) strength.
Any move or trick that involves strength and control will be taught in this class, and we will also work on giving you the strength you’ll need to do them.
You will need to be able to control basic inverts, and know the basics for shouldermounts in order to attend this class.
You can spin around a pole, or make the pole spin the way you’ll like. The latter is the centre of attention in the Spinny Pole classes. These classes focus on how to work on a spinning pole, how to control its speed, and some fun tricks and combinations to do in a spinning pole.
Basic experience with pole dancing, at least 5 Novelty/Beginner 1 classes, is required to attend this class.
Also, known as the Angel workout, Barre workouts became known when Victoria’s Secret Angels became fanatic practitioners of the workout. These 50-minute high-intensity classes that combine ballet techniques with the precision of Pilates, the alignment of yoga, and the strength- and endurance training from fitness, are killer (yet amazing when you walk out)! Barre workouts crush calories, and improve strength and posture all while working to lengthen and tone those muscles and shaping that perfect bum!
Zena Rommett Floor-Barre® is an American ballet-based technique that focuses on sculpting the body and creating long beautiful lines. The technique helps improving posture, preventing injuries, strengthening the body, and improving its flexibility. When practicing Floor-Barre® you will mostly work on the floor from a laying or seated position with ballet position. That way, you can work without gravity and the weight of the body works with the body. Floor-Barre® corrects the placement of the body, strengthens the joints and corrects the muscles by lengthening. Practicing the method leads to long, strong and flexible muscles, and better alignment.
Floor-Barre® is suitable for all levels and ages.
We all have our own mobility, but most of us only train their strength and endurance. More flexibility equals more, and more beautiful, shapes centring the pole, and therefore more fun achieving it all!
In our Full Flexy classes you wil be improving your overall flexibility by working on hip openers (for splits) and back bends, next to stretching the large, and deeper, muscle tissue.
Split Flexy classes are based on splits and middle (or: box) splits. It doesn’t matter at what stage of learning the splits you are – even if you have never tried to do them before -, we will train and maintain those splits by focussing on hamstrings, hip openers and pelvic tilts.
