Intro to pole (5 week block course)
CURRENTLY WHANGAREI STUDIO ONLY
This short block course is for people who want to give pole a go but are concerned they may struggle with some of the more strength based moves. It’s a chance to build confidence, fitness and friends by doing an introductory course in pole dance in which we concentrate on the basic moves around the pole and on the floor with a focus on dance rather than the tricks up the pole. This course requires little to no upper body strength to get started so is great for those who are worried about their strength and fitness. This course is an alternative to our Beginner A course and is aimed at preparing you to transition to the 10 week block Beginner A course upon completion. Please contact us if you are unsure as to where you would be best to start and we can advise.
Aerial hoops, also known as Lyra, consist of a steel hoop very similar to a hula hoop.They are suspended from the ceiling by either one or two points. They are most commonly seen in circuses and have been made popular by the most famous and evolved spectacle show, Cirque Du Soleil. Aerial hoops are a great workout, with the emphasis on your core and upper body. Beautiful poses and graceful movements can be achieved with practice. We recommend you wear long fitted leggings to the ankle and a fitted top. Leg warmers also may come in handy to protect the backs of the knees.
