About our Pole Level Program
Our Level Program includes a curriculum of moves within 6 "color" routines that changes every 2 weeks to help our students practice and progress safely. We encourage students to move through the class levels at their own pace.
All students can move to the next level by requesting a Level Assessment with an instructor, and a list of required moves to pass the level can be provided before the Level Assessment. While it is not a requirement to have attended all "color" routines, the student must be able to perform these moves comfortably and confidently in order to pass. After moving up a level, students are still welcome to review lower levels.
If you already have prior experience, please contact us at 512-477-7653 so we can determine the best level for you.
This is for students that are new to pole. Learn basic pole fundamentals including proper grip, balance, and control, all while building strength! We’ll focus on walking around the pole, basic spins, and floor work. Make sure to wear shorts because we’ll be covering sitting and climbing on the pole too! No prior experience is required.
Now that climbing and sitting are familiar, let’s learn some new spins and climbs! We'll start moving up, down, and all around the pole with new moves and transitions. We will also start building strength and prepare you for your first inversion!
You are now ready to turn everything upside-down! We will improve inversions, learn leg hangs and one-handed spins, and learn more about spinning poles. Be ready to put your newfound tricks and transitions into beautiful combos.
Now that you've been hanging upside down for awhile, let's get ready for some new challenges! We'll be working on more complex pole combinations and static rotations, drops, tumbles, and introductions to handsprings.
Having built a solid foundation of pole work, this is now the opportunity to learn moves found on Pole Sport & Arts World Federation Code of Points, experiment with new pole transitions, and try to recreate those inventive and crazy tricks we see polebrities post on social media. Entering this level is by lead instructor invite only.
Pole Happy Hour
Happy Hour is a time for you to come in to the studio to practice and improve on what you’ve learned in class, train for a performance or competition piece, or connect with others at Happy Hour for pole support. An instructor will provide a guided warm up and cool down as well as spot you or answer any questions you may have. However, this is not a structured class, so no new material will be presented. This is your time, so come in prepared with what you want to work on.
Come worship at your favorite house of pole every Sunday morning, where we'll come together to nurture our inner deities. Each class will begin with a focused freestyle warm-up, followed by learning 30-45 seconds of pole choreo or flow, and we'll end each class with a meditative movement exercise to cool down and center ourselves for the week ahead. A balanced blend of dance, pole, and mindfulness: everything a religious poler needs to feed their wild soul. All Sinners, Saints, and Agnostics are welcome!
So many of our experiences in life disconnect us from our bodies, and this class is designed to help you reconnect. Through the exploration of movement, breath, and the senses, we'll work together towards building safety in and connection to our bodies. Knee pads and socks are highly encouraged. It is an all-levels class, and no pole experience is needed.

Core strength, control, and endurance combined with correct muscle activation (and breath!) are key--and that will be our focus. Come hydrated, be body curious, and be ready to work. Let's start cracking those hips!
Move it, Roll it, Stretch it
We'd pole 24/7 if we could, but we all know that isn't the best thing for your body. We know cross-training with cardio, strength, and flexibility is a great way for your pole body to maintain balance, find improvement, and even prevent injury, and we also know to give our body some R&R so it can recover between our workouts. If any of that speaks to you, then this class has all of it! We’ll start with some quick endurance cardio HIIT or circuit training to get our heart rate up and follow it with a short full-body strength training session using bodyweight resistance and strength exercises. Once our bodies are warm and pliable, we’ll get rolling! We'll foam roll, lacrosse ball, or peanut to help release our tense muscles and work out our kinks and knots from the past week and get it ready to stretch. We’ll end the class with some active flexibility or end-range work followed by gentle passive stretching to relax our muscles. Expect to feel rejuvenated after this class and ready for the week! For all fitness levels. Bring lots of water, a foam roller, balls, and a yoga mat.
