If you are brand new to pole dance, we require that you start with Introduction to Pole before starting Beginner level classes. If you have previous pole dance experience, we ask that you call us before registering for class so that we can help you choose the best level/style of class to attend.

Our pole dancing curriculum consists of five levels as outlined below. We require that each student be approved and assessed with a formal "test out" before moving on to the next level. As well, students with previous experience may be asked to have an assessment to determine level placement. For more info or to schedule an assessment/test out, contact the studio.


  • Intro: you'll learn a variety of spins, poses and transitions while on the ground.
  • Beginner (Level 1): you'll learn basic spins, poses and transitions, as well as the basics of bracket climbing, floorwork and strength and conditioning. We'll also teach you how to string moves together for beginner combinations.
  • Novice (Level 2): you'll learn more advanced spins, side climbs, forearm stands and low aerial fundamental moves like jasmine and genie. We'll also teach you low-pole mounts like the brass monkey mount from a shoulder stand, as well as introduce you to spin pole. The primary goal is to help you gain the strength, conditioning, and mechanics for more advanced aerial moves in the next level.
  • Intermediate (Level 3 or 4): You’ll be introduced to aerial basics such as inverts, shoulder mounts, skater mounts, leg hangs, superman, butterfly, and brass monkey with the goal being that by the end of this level, these and similar skills can be demonstrated proficiently as individual moves and within combos. The goal for this level is to build strength, muscle memory, and conditioning to prepare you to tackle advanced aerial moves in the next level.
  • Advanced (Level 5+): In this level, you’ll start working on building strength for aerial mounts such as chopper inverts, shoulder mounts, and skater mounts. Progressions for Ayesha (all grips) and handsprings will be taught with the end goal being proficiency in ayeshas/handsprings with all grips. A variety of advanced split and flexy moves are also taught in this level. Moves will be taught individually and within combos.
