OUR CLASSES

Pole isn't one size fits all, so why should our classes be?   We offer a full range of classes from absolute Beginner to Advance, as well as dedicated classes in flexibility & strength training, spinning pole as well as cultivating your skills at moving around the Pole with our monthly Pole Flow & SXY Pole workshops, meaning you can get involved in as much as you like to become as well rounded a Dancer as you aspire to be. All our classes are capped to 2 Members per pole and 6 Members per class in total; guaranteeing you a fully personalised learning experience to learn at your own pace and in a safe and effective way.

 

Our classes are split between 4 ability levels,  with a dedicated syllabus of level-appropriate tricks, spins and combinations, as well as incorporating strength, flexibility and dance training. Each class will begin with a warm up and end with a cool down stretch. At Pivot we love incorporating all you learn in various sequences and combinations, rather than in isolation, as we believe this is the best way for our Members to increase their stamina, strength, confidence and creativity!

Flexibility Flow

Aerial bodies are not just built in the air and flexibility classes are so much more than achieving crazy contorted shapes. Learn about your body in a way you never knew you could, decrease the risk of injury and improve your posture each week.  In this All Level class, we’ll incorporate anatomy-based coaching to break down the science of how to stretch for your Middle and Front splits and build mobility and stability in your backs and shoulders; which muscles need to be strong and active and which muscles need to lengthen. With active & passive flexibility drills that flow into one another to increase endurance, stability, and maximum body control to increase your flexibility and usable ranges of motion at a safe and realistic pace and in an efficient way for your body. We’ll also focus on the importance of breathing to achieve a positive mindset which you can continue on into your day.  Yoga mats, blocks and straps are provided but you are welcome to bring your own. We recommend wearing form fitting layered clothing which keep you warm and allow you to move freely. Bring socks, kneepads and water.
