Group Class, All Levels
This is Michelle’s signature class. It begins with a 30 min warm-up, including flexibility training, abs, butt and arms toning, and cardio. Then before you get on the pole, you will get moving across the floor with acrodance moves you will incorporate into pole moves later. Michelle will then teach several pole “flow” exercises—moving from one spin or trick to another, rather than focusing on one trick at a time. This class can be offered to all levels, but at least a beginner-level of pole dance skills is preferred.
