~ Ballet ~
We’re bringing back ballet basics.
These exercises are the first things you learn in a ballet class in order to instill correct spinal posture, strength and stability in your joints and core which helps your balance. Co-ordination and graceful movements of the arms and head as well as the lower body, flexibility in the hips and learning about aesthetics of ballet and lines of the body. All done to a variety of modern music and a fun attitude!
Be prepared to sweat up a storm and work those legs!
Wear comfortable, tight fitting clothing that has a bit of stretch, ballet flats or socks are preferable footwear.
~ Pole Dance ~
Let's get physical!
Pole is fun, challenging and empowering. You'll get a full body workout including safe practices for warm up, cool down and stretching techniques. It's a great activity for weight loss, increasing strength, flexibility, confidence and over all well being. Pole dancing is suitable for a wide range of participants. No limits for experience, age, height, shape, weight or gender. That’s right, boys can pole too.
Wear comfortable stretchy clothing. A t-shirt or singlet and shorts is ideal, avoid yoga pants, tights and ¾ leggings as you will need bare leg skin on the pole for grip. Leg warmers are a good idea if you have them. Bare feet or gym shoes. Do not moisturise your hands and legs on the day you have class, this makes your skin slippery and unable to grip the pole.
