Service Description

Prerequisites: We aim to provide a well-rounded, safe class and expect all students to use their best judgment with their bodies' abilities. To ensure injury prevention, students should be able to execute the following comfortably and safely: - Climb to top of pole with fluidity and ease - Spin pole basics: execute a pole sit, and hold body weight in the air while the pole is spinning - Inversions (ex: confidently climb the pole and move to a straddle invert from the air; able to hold the position before descending with control) - Inside and outside leg hangs --- Fly with us in Aerial Skills! Join us as we build skills and techniques for moving on the upper half of the pole. This class will focus on safely climbing and training pole skills aerially. (please note class prerequisites) The instructor will facilitate a warm-up and guide you through conditioning exercises focused on building strength to move aerially on the pole. The rest of the class is dedicated to training inversions, leg hangs, and other shapes aerially. You will continue to train variations on these skills, fluidity of your pole climb, and dismounts, as well as practice various other pole skills on static and spin. This class is technique-focused. The instructor may introduce short combos on static and spin, but the focus of the class is to refine your aerial skills to prepare you to build combinations with clean technique safely. Yes, we will work on micro-bends, toe-points, and showcasing your beautiful lines! We recommend this class for those who want to build a repertoire of aerial pole skills and transitions that you can apply to freestyle/improvisation or choreography of various styles. Whether you are building a bunch of tricks for yourself and Instagram, or intend on adding these skills to your performance, this class is for you. Please review the class prerequisites. This class is designed for students who can safely and cleanly work on pole technique aerially. You can continue conditioning exercises on your own at home or in open Pole Practices. Bring a notebook to class, and document the activities and tips that will help you meet your pole goals. All classes will have a Skill Checklist document you can use to guide your pole progress.
