Weekly Classes

We have several kinds of weekly classes held in the Association Room (Jämeräntaival 1, 02150 Espoo) where we have 5 poles you can spin on. The class descriptions can be found below. For the classes you should bring a little towel (to dry up the pole) shorts and a water bottle.

At the moment we are running our basic technique classes in frour levels: beginner, intermediate 1, intermediate 2 and advanced. In addition to this, we have special classes for choreography, spin pole, pole strength and stretching. We also reserve some open classes for our members to train on their own pace. You can find detailed descriptions of these classes below and our class schedule from our calendar. We take at most ten people in one class. Book sufficiently in advance to be sure you’ll fit in!

Beginner TC (Technique Class)

This is our most basic class suitable for beginners. You will get used to the pole and learn the basic spins and easiest poses. No prior experience needed! We strongly recommend attending the TC Beginner when you first start out.

Intermediate 1 TC (Technique Class)

In the intermediate 1 technique class we start moving towards more complex spins and the reverse grab. You’ll learn more poses upside down and get used to short combos. Prior requirements are basic spins, layback and crucifix. If you aren’t sure whether you have the skills needed, don’t hesitate to ask our instructor.

Intermediate 2 TC (Technique Class)

In intermediate 2 technique classes, we prep our body control and pole skills towards the advanced level with handstands, flexibility drills and gain strength by combining pole techniques learnt in easier classes. Before attending the lesson you should be able to do an aerial invert, scorpio, gemini and butterfly with comfort and have good control of your body.

Advanced TC (Technique Class)

This is our most advanced technique class and suitable for people who have attended intermediate 2 lessons for some time. Here we train moves on our hands that require strength and complex transitions needing good body control. In addition to the intermediate 2 requirements, prerequisites for this class are the reverse grab, shoulder mount and reiko split. You should also be comfortable with basic pole handstands. You might want to chat with our instructor before attending!

Open Class

A class where you can train what you wish at your own pace. The instructor will take you through the warm up and be there to help and give tips at your request. If you are a choreo student or otherwise preparing for a show, OCs are definitely the place to be! Anyhow, all polers benefit from the open classes.

Spin Pole

Dancing with the spinning pole is a whole other ballgame which requires speed control and a little more strength than the static pole. The classes are designed to be fun and challenging for both beginner and intermediate level polers though we recommend beginners to attend the technique classes also.

Pole Strength

Our strength classes are more training than dancing or technique. We do exercises with and without the pole and wall bars to get stronger and increase our active mobility. The goal is, obviously, to benefit our pole dancing even though we’ll give you a great workout in addition.

Choreo Class

The choreo class takes you to the dancing side of pole dancing. We teach new choreography pieces, floorwork and improvization each lesson. Unlike our previous choreo class, you can jump in at any time for just a lesson or two to smooth your moves. The class is suitable for all levels, although we recommend you to be comfortable with the very basic spins before attending.

Stretching

Improving your mobility is essential to becoming a good pole dancer. We help you with that in our instructed stretching session. There are some yoga mats and blocks at the association room but we suggest you bring your own.
