PROGRESSIVE SERIES CLASSES
At Sensual Serenity, we offer Pole Dance Fitness classes that cater to adult bodies which generally have muscle imbalances as a result of work culture and lifestyle. We are known for breaking down the steps of each movement, step by step. We focus on safety and technical skills training, all the while correcting imbalances to reduce the chance of injury.
Students can begin training in our Pole Dance Fitness program at any time with no start or finish date. We recommend all “pole virgins” participate in the 4 week Intro to Pole Series. This will help them to obtain the necessary fundamental moments and safety skills in order to participate in training.
Our classes are broken down into types of skills such as Spins & Transitions, Climbing, Sits and Invert Prep, Invert Combos, etc. As no two students are the same, we focus predominantly on each student’s individual needs in order to enhance their skills and strength. We keep a detailed record of each student’s mobility, stability, and strength assessments, as well as moves mastered from our training syllabus. There are prerequisite skills required to participate in each class. Your record will indicate when you are ready to progress to a new skill level!
