All syllabus classes focus on developing your trick vocabulary and build on from what is taught in the previous level. These classes will include a new choreography every 4 weeks so you can get an idea of how to string together the moves you’ve learnt and work on your body awareness and lines. Your instructor will let you know individually when you are ready and safe to proceed to the next level, everyone will learn at a different pace and you should be proud of your own journey!
Absolute beginners welcome! Here’s where all of us at PDM started. Not to worry, no experience or fitness background is necessary. Starting with the basic pole walk and grips, we will soon have you spinning around, climbing and sitting comfortably up the pole! Please wear a sports bra/singlet and shorts that expose the back of the knees and inner thighs, and bring along a sweat towel. No body lotion please! This will make the poles slippery.
Moving up criteria includes: knee spin, fan kick, jamilla, climb + pole sit + layout combo.
Now you’ve had a feel of the basics, it’s time to build on those skills and take them to the next level, including going upside down from a basic pole sit! Learn more beautiful moves and overcome the fear of going upside down in this level. In the last week of each term we will introduce the sought-after straddle invert and cover techniques and conditioning exercises to help you get into it safely and beautifully!
Moving up criteria includes: jamilla split, angel, backstag, fast spin, spin climb + sit + layback + headstand combo.
Okay face it, you’re getting hooked. In this level we will master the invert that we introduced in Pole 1, and get comfortable with single leg hangs, outside and inside leg. Learn the beautiful ballerina and your first drop to wow any audience! We will also build your strength further and work towards shoulder mounts to prepare you for Pole 3.
Moving up criteria includes: skater, ballerina, Invert + crucifix + handstand stag + superman and Invert + outside leg hang pike to inside leg hang combos.
In this level you will learn how to perform an aerial invert and various tricks to develop on the single leg hangs taught in Pole 2; shoulder mount, brass monkey and more! This is currently our highest level syllabus class, until further notice...
This is an additional class we added to help you improve at this level, as we felt once a week is not quite enough. This class is all about fixing technique and lines, and covers minimal adjustments going into outside leg hang, different ways to spin climb and aerial invert, and work on your freestyle combos and transitions. No routine is covered in this class.
