Intro to Flying Pole Workshop

Come fly with us! This class is suitable for polers at a Pre-Intermediate level and up. Join your instructor for an hour of individualized instruction on the Flying Pole, a pole that hangs from a swivel on the ceiling and rotates around the rigging point. This apparatus adds a whole new dimension to your pole practice. The workshop will focus on the fundamentals of building momentum and spin play, as well as grounding tactics to completely control the pole. Spots are extremely limited.

 

Take your expertise to the next level with Ecole de Pole’s Beginner/Elementary accredited training course. Based on functional teaching methodology written by champion poler Justine McLucas, participants will develop a high skill level in technical instruction, pole grips and tricks, ways to correct technique, building strength and flexibility, with an emphasis on safety and injury prevention to support students throughout their pole journey.

Suitable as an instructor training tool, for new or experienced teachers, the courses provide insight and skills for the pole dancer wishing to further their own personal understanding of the mechanics of pole movement to apply improved techniques to their pole training as well.
