POLE DANCE FITNESS LEVEL PROGRESSIONS

Levels Pole 1 – Pole 7

Each of these structured sessions gives our students a solid foundation in pole dancing & sensual movement. These classes are lively, sexy, and fun! Beginner classes incorporate the Aradia™ Fitness floor workout (our sexy take on Yoga) as well fundamental pole dance transitions, spins, tricks and strength building exercises.  Clients must attend at least eight (8) classes of each level before being eligible to advance to the next level.  For safety reasons, Aradia Fitness requires all clients to pass an assessment prior to advancing.  Clients are welcome to attend any Pole Level class at their current approved level or any lower level.

Aradia Fitness also offers three Mixed-Level pole dance class options for clients to attend in addition to their structured pole level class – Beginner Pole (Pole 1 & Pole 2), Pole 2eXceL (modified Pole 1-4), Intermediate Pole (Pole 3 & Pole 4) and Advanced Pole (Pole 5, 6, & 7). Mixed level classes may count towards a student’s 8 class minimum for pole advancement & assessment.

 

** IMPORTANT ** First-time pole dance students must begin with a “Teaser: Intro to Pole Dance Class”. After completion of your Teaser class, you will then be eligible to attend any Pole 1 or Beginner Pole class on the schedule. During your first class, your instructor will give you an overview of how clients can progress through their pole journey at Aradia Fitness!

We welcome pole enthusiasts from near & far to train with us at Aradia Fitness!
