Pole Curriculum

​Our curriculum is unique to our studio and helps students build the foundational skills of pole dance.  This includes core conditioning exercises, terminology, pole tricks, and dance moves to help dancers progress to more difficult pole tricks and combinations.  Levels correspond with various colors of garter belts.  Students earn garter levels after testing out for each level. Students can test out during Progression Series, monthly Pole Jam, or private lessons. Garter belts can also be earned by completing corresponding level Performance Series.  Our levels are as follows:

  • ​White Level (Level 1, Beginner)

  • Pink Level (Level 1, Beginner)

  • Red Level (Level 2, Intermediate)

  • Purple Level (Level 2/3, Intermediate)

  • Black Level (Level 4, Advanced)
     

Progression Series

Progression Series are usually 8 weeks long and go over all the moves from each level of our pole curriculum. Students must have passed the previous level to attend classes at the next level.

Performance Series

Performance Series generally start 8 weeks before studio showcases.  Over the course of 8 weeks, students learn an entire choreographed routine and have the option to perform in the upcoming show.  Follow us on Instagram for the most up to date show information, also check our Workshops/Series/Events Page.
