This class is designed with an emphasis on what judges are looking for of how to take your performance to professional. Hold on tight and fly higher!
Grace in Transitions POLE (intermediate-advanced)
From one move to another shouldn’t be rushed unless intended dynamic. It should be acknowledged as a move all on it’s own. Slow down, flow it up. Change speeds, maintain control. We focus on thinking patterns of the mind and allowing ourselves to be present in our movement. You will learn new ways in and out of old moves and the importance of balancing your transition moves to allow freedom in your flow.

Learn a routine created by Jenyne, just for you. This applies on any aerial apparatus. Then in the class we will add our own uniqueness to the moves and blend with moves you already know. The focus is to create new ways of holding and transitioning. Try to draw attention away from the prep work and highlight the important skills while putting character on display.
STAGE Performance (all levels)
Create your character. Get out of your character. Learn what it takes to create an act from start to finish. Whether it’s in dance, theatre, circus, or sport, you can apply performance skills to your plate. Step up the the plate. Challenge yourself to be something else. Have fun!

Basic tumbling/shapes/conditioning for beginners (and skill development)
Intermediate tumbling (cartwheels/round offs/handstands/etc)
Advanced tumbling (saults/flips/etc)
While very few of us can sit on our heads and live to tell the tale, the ancient art of contortion has many important lessons every pole dancer should know. Contortion teaches patience, mindfulness and result-orientated practice. Take a deep breath, have an open mind and watch your body achieve things, you once thought were impossible.
Contortion for beginners
In the Beginner Workshop we will work towards illusion skills, i.e. positions and tricks that look flexible but are actually achievable for most adults with the right technique and practice time. These skills are easily transferable to pole and aerial apparatuses, and also make any floor work sequence just a little bit more exciting. These skills are also designed to improve your overall flexibility level, targeting leg, back and shoulder muscles every time you practice!
Next Level Contortion (Intermediate+)
Following an extensive warm up, we will work towards advanced skills such as needle scales, chin stands and scorpions. Advanced split tricks will also be covered, that require active flexibility as well as stability. Students who can front split, push up into a bridge and hold assisted handstands are welcome to join this workshop.
