Jeanette – Pole Acrobatics, Spins & Conditioning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


In this beginning pole acrobatic and spinning workshop we will be learning some of the basic universal pole moves, positions and spins that have made pole dance and acrobatics so popular! Technique plays an important role in this gymnastic sport, and you will walk away from this workshop with a good grip on beginning pole moves and spins as well as the technique needed to implement further advanced positions and inversions. And, just as important it is to execute these moves and spins, learning how to gracefully enter and exit them is equally crucial. No need for any rigorous dance, fitness or acrobatic experience prior to taking this workshop; you will gain the exact skills that you need to take away a fantastic foundation (and mini-routine!) on the pole.

POLE CONDITIONING AND STRETCHING In this pole conditioning and stretching workshop we will be gaining the musculature of an elite athlete, after all that’s what pole acrobatics is all about! You will learn how to strengthen muscles, tendons and ligaments indigenous to the pole all while elongating them and creating a lithe, lean look. You will not only feel stronger and more empowered, but also beautiful and enlightened; there’ss something to be said about the way that Greek Gods looked while perched atop Mount Olympus. Keep this image in mind while on your way to the best shape of your life via pole conditioning and stretching, nothing compares. Tabata method (high intensity interval training) is used in some parts of the workshop. Novice fitness students thru advanced athletes welcome!
