Curvy Pole 6 Week Pole Dance Series

Start your year off with something new! Accomplish New Years Goals and have fun while doing it!

Join instructor Samantha Davis for a 6-Week Curvy Pole Series.

Curvy Pole is perfect for those with curves in all the right places who are brand new to pole or have some previous pole experience and are looking for a welcoming environment to learn how to Pole in. Developed by a curvy instructor for curvy students, this class blends fitness and dance aspects so you can be yourself, learn at your own pace, and build confidence.

This 60 minute class starts with an instructor led yoga-inspired total body warm up. The warm up will continue onto the poles for conditioning exercises that target muscle groups that will help curvy students progress in the curriculum by building strength and stamina. Students will then learn various pole skills and tricks progressing into learning a unique pole combo that can be used to dance at the end of each class.

This series meets every Saturday at 1pm starting on January 5th & ending on February 9th. $60 for the full series, sign up today from your student account at
