WILD ORCHID POLE

DANCE. ART. FITNESS. PLAY.

READY TO GET STARTED?

The majority of new clients that join Wild Orchid haven’t had any pole experience. Therefore, all new members start with our Foundations Program. It’s designed to introduce you to our methodology, core movements, and the rhythm of our classes. Foundations is a learning experience, not a gut check. You can’t “fail” the program. After you complete the 4 week course you’ll be ready to jump into our drop-in classes and start moving safely and beautifully!

BEGINNER & ALL LEVEL CLASSES

Beginner Pole

Prerequisite: Pole Foundation Series

Pole Conditioning & Flexibility

Prerequisite: None

Exercises are presented with multiple difficulty options, giving each student the opportunity to tailor their workout to their level. 

Pole Choreo & Flow

Prerequisites: Open to students in Pole Foundations and up

This ALL LEVELS class is designed to build strength, movement awareness, and a fluid skill vocabulary to start dancing through pole flows. Classes focus on learning short choreography that incorporates both pole and floor work. Students will become more familiar with the pole in space, as well as applying movement to music. Have no dance experience? No worries! Catching onto choreography may be challenging at first, but students are excited to find that learning and grasping choreography is a skill that also develops over time.

Sexy Flow

This ALL LEVELS class is first and foremost designed to be... fun! Through pole and floor-work exploration, we'll get in touch with that inner vixen as we discover what sexy is to each one of us as individuals. The class will always have aspects of movement awareness, building skill vocabulary, and musicality, all within a safe, encouraging, judgement-free environment. Come and get your SEXY on!

Flexibility
