Intro Class

This class is tailored especially to new students who are interested in starting their pole journey. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. You will also get a preview of our unique 8 week session classes. You'll be guided through a slow and sensually focused warmup, followed by pole and floor work, culminating in a short and sweet routine that pulls it all together. 

We REQUIRE taking this class before starting in 1hr Fundamental Pole Tricks if you've never taken a pole class before! 

Intros are held every other Sunday at Pole Icons/Provocateur Location and EVERY Saturday at Brass Ring/Carte Blanche Location!

Sensual 8 Week Session 

Led by a certified pole and dance instructor, this class will have you safely on the pole from day 1! If you're interested in a progressive series to awaken or enliven your sensuality and sexuality, this class is for you. Learn the language of your body and how to move fluidly in it as we integrate both static and spin pole into a comprehensive level class. Enjoy the camaraderie of a supportive group in a space that offers sanctuary and supportive instruction to all body types, ages, and abilities. This class is appropriate for anyone who is interested in learning how to move sensually! For some of us, it's important to have a space to explore our sensuality in a safe group setting that helps us get comfortable, because F*** the patriarchy. We do acknowledge and celebrate that pole comes from femme stripper culture and some parts may have more of a femme focus!

If you have previous experience and are unsure of level placement outside of Level 1, please call the studio. Must register and sign up for entire 8 week session.
