Pole dance is a perfect fusion of sport and dance. In the pole beginners 1 lessons you will be introduced to the basics of pole dancing. You will practice the basic techniques such as different spins, climbs & seats. During each lesson, you will develop more and more strength and flexibility to be able to perform the exercises better. after 10 to 20 lessons you will be able to move on to beginners 2. Here you learn to make combinations of the different spins you learned during the beginners 1  and you will learn more invert techniques. You need between 20 and 30 lessons to be able to master the basic invert techniques like helicopter, butterfly, layback / cross knee release and move on to intermediate 1. 

What to wear
I recommend stretchy shorts and a sleeveless top. And something warmer like leggings for during the warming up. In addition, we request to not use lotions or creams on the skin for at least 24 hours before you come to class.
