Core units of study

  • Intermediate Pole Class Formats

    In this unit we look at how to build on the structure of a beginner class to suit the increasing demand of intermediate level pole training to produce balanced class plans incorporating motor skills, strength & flexibility training with suitable adaptations to meet the varying needs of students.

  • Pole Conditioning

    We explore concepts of functional and efficient execution of movement and how conditioning supports improved technique and thus injury prevention. Alongside numerous practical examples of conditioning for pole, we will introduce handstand training to understand the transferrable skills they hold that can benefit pole.

  • Teaching Inverts

    As your students prepare for the most exciting yet potentially dangerous step in their pole journey, we ensure instructors are equipped to demonstrate safe and effective spotting techniques with clear guidelines for teaching dangerous tricks competently.

  • Developmental Stretching for Dancers

    Alongside the higher demand for strength and conditioning at this level, is the increased need for flexibility to sufficiently execute many intermediate pole tricks. In this unit we take a look at developmental stretching and how to assist students with their flexibility goals, studying the important multi faceted anatomical areas required to achieve splits.

  • Muscles & Anatomy

    In this unit we study the muscle movements & joint actions recruited for inversions, this means a focus on the anatomy of the core & wrists. We will also take an interesting immersion into the mechanics of pointing the toes.

  • Dance Imagery

    An exploration of how to promote creative expression and fluid movement in your pole class using dance imagery techniques.

  • Breakdown of Intermediate Tricks

    With an understanding of functional movement and the value of technique we will work through over 80 intermediate pole tricks, spins, conditioning & flexibility exercises and look at the concepts of spinning pole. You will gain competence in teaching the moves in this course through detailed descriptions, videos, images, common watch out points, tips and spotting techniques.
