Intro to Pole – 60 minutes

*3-5 Intro classes are required at this level*

If you are new to the art of pole, start here. You can do this! Learn the basics of pole dance technique, safety, and strength.  This class will challenge you with a total body workout and prepare you for joining Pole 1 classes.  We recommend you attend Intro to Pole 3-5 times before attempting Pole 1. *Please wear athletic shorts so that the back of your knees can be exposed for class.

Pole 1 – 75 minutes

Spin, climb, and build your strength in Pole 1. We take our Intro skills to the next level in this class.  You will get an incredible work-out and learn new dance and strengthening techniques that will prepare you for inversions. *Please wear tight fitting athletic shorts that expose your mid thigh for this class.

Pole 2 – 75 minutes

*Must  have Instructor approval and have fluency with Pole 1 spins, climbing, pirouettes, and inversion preps.*

Ready to get inverted?  Take your practice into the air in Pole 2.  We work on more advanced spins, climbs, holds, and floorwork in this class.

Strong and Flexy – 60 minutes

*Recommended for all levels.*

Come to Strong and Flexy to focus on your strength.  We will use the poles, floor, and walls for a circuit style workout.  The second half of the class will be devoted to a long, blissful stretching session.

Spinning Pole 1– 60 minutes

*For strong, experienced Pole 1 students.*

Take your foundation moves onto the spinning pole. We learn to understand the physics of the spinning pole and how to control our bodies and speed as the pole spins us through space.

Hot in Heelz – 60 minutes

*For strong, experienced Pole 1 students.*

Learn to dance with style and technique in stiletto platform high heels.  We practice sexy dance choreography, low flow, and floorwork.  Bohemienne recommends 6-7 inch heeled shoes by a brand called Pleaser.  Shoes must have ankle straps to keep them secure.  We frequently use soft kneepads in this class.  You may borrow ours or bring your own.

Pole Artist Workshop  – 90 minutes

*For strong, experienced Pole 1 students.*

Explore the pole as an apparatus for dance movement.  We will study the finer points of dance expression and learn to dance with creative freedom.  The class incorporates dance improvisation exercises, floorwork, and exploration of musicality and fluidity.  *Please dress in layers with leggings, socks, and sleeves as we will be rolling on the floor.*

Open Pole Practice 

Practice makes progress!  Bohemienne Fitness will open the studio for students to practice skills that have been presented in class.  This is NOT an instructor led class.  You will NOT learn anything new. The studio is open for pole practice, stretching, and dancing.  The studio is supervised by the instructor.  No reservation required. $10 at the door.  Maximum 10 students allowed.

Private Lessons – 60 minutes

Would you rather work one on one?  Get a personal pole session to really increase your skills.  Ask the instructor about scheduling a private lesson. 1 student for $65, 2 students for $80, 3 students for $90, 4 students for $100.  Please make one payment per group.
