Pole

Intro to Pole

**Beginner**  No experience necessary! In this introductory class we'll teach you all the basics like how to move around the pole, a variety of beginner level spins and poses, and how to climb. We'll also introduce the different styles of pole taught at our studio in order to help guide your future practice.

Recommended attire: Shorts, short sleeves, tank top, or sports bra. Barefoot, heels, or sneakers.

Intro to Exotic Dance

Have fun finding your sexy side! This class is similar to our Intro to Pole class, with the added elements of more exotic/‘stripper-style’ movements, floorwork and heels.

Recommended attire: Leggings, leg warmers that cover the knee, or kneepads are recommended for floorwork. Heels are optional but always encouraged!

Pole Flow

**Beginner/All Levels**  Find your freestyle! In this class you'll learn and practice things like spins, pirouettes, transitions, floorwork and more. The goal of our Pole Flow class is to develop the skills needed to dance fluidly around the pole, in both freestyle and choreographed sequences.

Pole Foundations

    **All Levels**  Stretch and strengthen! In this class you'll work on building the strength, flexibility and body awareness needed to master the art of pole. Each foundations class includes 20 minutes of strength and flexibility conditioning, 30 minutes of skill practice, and a 10 minute cool down. One of the more exciting things you will learn is how to hang upside down from the pole with just your legs!

OPEN PRACTICE

 **All Levels** Less structured than our regular classes, our open practices are a great time to come in and stretch, condition, work on skills, freestyle, or prepare for a performance.  This is more of a self-lead practice, but experienced instructors are always present to provide support and guidance. Great for competition and performance training,  creativity, and collaboration! To book the studio for training outside of regularly scheduled practices, email ripolespace@gmail.com.

Pole Combos

Practicing linking your skills together! The purpose of this class is to build stamina and integrate pole tricks into longer performable pieces. In each class you'll practice sequences of 2-4 moves and transitions, with different options given to suit your current level. 

 

Heels & Floorwork

A dynamic workout suitable for all dance levels! This class mixes sexy heel choreography with exotic elements. The routines taught in this class limit the use of the pole to easy transitions/weight transferring, so prior pole experience is not required. Knee pads are recommended.
