"I'm not strong enough." Our syllabus is designed to give your body time to develop strength in pole class. Each class builds upon the last class making your body stronger with each spin.
"I'm not flexible enough." Our leveling system provides you with the ability to start with what your body can do. You are not required to be flexible even at an advanced level. If you want to become flexible as an adult, it is possible with the correct techniques and consistency. We offer stretching classes.
"I'm not coordinated enough." Nonsense! Teaching your body to flow sometimes takes a little time, but I can guarantee you that you will get the hang of it!
"I need to wait until I loose weight." Gibberish! Polers celebrate size and diversity! All shapes and sizes of people pole. In fact, there is a competition that only accepts curvy polers. You can find more information at www.KissMyCurvesPole.com.
Sign up for a drop-in class or take an Orientation Class to get started! Orientation Classes are listed under Special Classes. We hold them once or twice a month on Sunday afternoons. The link below is for Orientaiton Classes.
Expressions Fitness Level System
Level 1: If you prefer your feet on the floor, this is the level for you! There are a few aerial tricks considered to be level 1, but they are optional. This level is designed for the beginner who has no fitness or dance background or just want's to start at the beginning.
Level 2: You can start at level 2 or take a level 1&2 combined pole class as a beginner if you would like a challenge. Inverting or going upside down in class is optional at this level.
Level 3: Inverting (going upside down) safely and consistently without assistance is a requirement for level 3. Level 3 classes include all the basic inverted movement concepts like hands free inside and outside leg hangs or Gemini and Scorpio. Butterfly to flat line is included in level 3 at Expressions.
Level 4: Level 4 consists of intermediate movements like Jade, Allegra, extended butterflies, and harder upright moves like cupid and superman. You should have your level 4 checklist mostly completed before moving to advanced pole.
Advanced: It's important to teach your body the concepts in levels 1-4 before you get to advanced pole so that your body is healthy and safe in advanced pole.
