Pole Dance Class With A Metaphysical Twist

Enjoy the freedom to explore your own capacity and potential in this unique Pole Dance Choreography class that brings in the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical. We will start by warming up all the joints, learning 3-5 pole moves that can be combined into a routine, then we'll turn off the lights and dance it out with what we've learned. To wrap up the class, we'll stretch out the body before finishing up with some breathwork. All my classes include a metaphysical twist, so expect some woo woo stuff to help you play with moving and releasing emotional energy trapped within your body! Bring: An open mind, a water bottle, a pair of tight-fitting shorts/sports bra and baggy layers (sweat pants and socks) to keep up body temperature during warm-up and cool-downs.

Crank up the tunes and start playing to the music with Meter's guidance. Helping everyone along the way to make sure everyone is in sync. By the end of the hour and a half class, the entire group will be playing actual drums together along to some of your favorite songs, working together to “keep that beat” In a fun and relaxed environment.
