Class Experience

Add new skills to your Chinese Pole repertoire in this intermediate/advanced workshop taught with a fusion of Chinese and European pole technique! Through thoughtful progressions and various static and dynamic poses, students will explore the ins and outs of various static poses and work their way towards finding flow and rhythm while dropping and sliding.

Prerequisites: Students should be able to do at least one pull up, hold a hollow body on the floor for 30 seconds, and be able to climb a vertical (fabric, rope, aerial pole) apparatus at least one body length.

Taught by Back Pocket, a contemporary circus company from Belgium.
