Pole Dance Courses

Intensive pole dancing courses in Chester for all levels of ability

When you learn at Candy & Chrome, we don’t want you to just be able to do a few spins, or worse … dodgy looking tricks!

We want to you be a MASTER of the basics AND be strong enough and prepared enough to start your upside down learning with ease.

To get very good at pole dance, you need well-paced lessons, where the tricks get gradually harder, but are completely manageable for the normal person! Teamed with professional instruction.  We are highly experienced at this and our classes are well known in Chester for being professional, up-to-date, comprehensive, SAFE …. and …. FUN!

We offer the following courses, available as a group class.  Our courses suit anyone, no matter what shape, age, or fitness level.

 


 

Beginner Level

Cost: £40 before week 1, and £40 again before week 4.

Or secure your place by paying in full for 8 weeks at £80.

Pre-Requisites: None

For complete beginners with no prior strength or pole training.  The course is one hour a week for eight weeks. In the first 4 weeks you will learn:  Spins, Poses, Transitions, Floor work, and Climbing.

By weeks 4/5 is where you start to get noticeably stronger, and see subtle muscle tone changes.  So we up the anti by giving you more demanding spins and exercises, sitting (ON the pole!), standing and preparing you for inverting (going upside down). We aim to get you aerial by lesson 8 and we are yet to fail at this!

All classes start with a basic warm up and stretches, and end with cooling down stretches. Group classes are small, only 9 per class, and as our Chester classes are very popular, places go to the first people to pay for them.  You can do that using the buttons below.

Improver level

Cost: £40 before week 1, and £40 again before week 4.

Or secure your place by paying in full for 8 weeks at £80.

Pre-Requisites: Beginner level + Strength & Technique level (or similar, if you have come from another school).

Suitable for Beginner-Intermediate level students as more upper body strength and pole confidence is required.  The course is one hour a week for eight weeks.

We start this course with some more difficult spins, poses, various seated and laying back tricks, climbing and basic inverted moves.

By weeks 4/5 is where it gets a bit tougher.  Since Beginner level, we have built up your strength for this bit so you will be able to cope with what comes next … Inverting, Aerial tricks, Dismounts.  We will also take your shoulder mount from the preparation stage (which was included in Level 1) one step further.  We also begin work on the handspring by the end of this course.

It’s totally OK to repeat this course if you’re not totally confident by the end, some will, some won’t need to – there’s no hard-fast rules, take it at YOUR pace!

Intermediate level

Cost: £40 before week 1, and £40 again before week 4.

Or secure your place by paying in full for 8 weeks at £80.

Pre-Requisites: Beginner + Strength + Improver + Strength  (or similar if you have come from another school).

Congratulations! You’re entering the realm of seriousness and feeling pretty impressed – But you’re not ready to hang upside down off one toe just yet!

This 8 week course is designed to help you gain confidence in being upside down, spending time at mid-pole height, refining your technique and making sure your leg/hip/arm locks are secure, trying a couple of basic combinations, working on the weaker side, dead lifting and making it all look natural!  This is also a great level to return to, if you’ve had a bit of a pole break and were previously at Intermediate standard, and saves you having to shell out un-necessarily.

By the end of this course, your ears will be ringing with the sound of my voice screaming ‘Lift woman! Butt higher! Hold it! Exit nicely!’ – but you will move like a butterfly and have the precision of a pole ninja!

Most students will need to do this course twice before moving on to the Advanced level as the spectrum of moves that are considered ‘Intermediate’ are almost endless!

Advanced Level

Cost: £40 before week 1, and £40 again before week 4.

Or secure your place by paying in full for 8 weeks at £80.

Pre-Requisites: Beginner + Strength + Improver + Strength + Intermediate + Strength

Suitable for the Intermediate-Advanced students who are more serious about studying ‘The Art of Pole’.  The moves are increasingly difficult and require a more seasoned pole dancer to achieve them.  Again this is for one hour a week over eight weeks.

We start this course strengthening and polishing the bigger moves from Intermediate , and throw in lots of new, more challenging aerial tricks.

We work on lifting into your inverts gracefully, but more so on controlling your dismounts.  This puts a lot of strain on your muscles which is why you will find this level tough!

In these weeks we aim to perfect the shoulder mount and handspring, build a repertoire of aerial poses and be able to transition between them, building two, three and four trick ‘combo’s’.

This is where the journey starts to slow down, you may like to repeat this level many times as there will always be things to work on at this standard of polling!  Even if you do master everything we have thrown at you by now – we can always pull more goodies out of the bag!

Further Learning –

To progress to advanced levels, we need to do this on a private lesson basis as the moves are much more intense, impressive and demanding. Therefore you’ll need a bit more recovery and practice time in between picking up each new move.

Training at this level requires more individual attention as your body position needs to be perfect in order to execute the moves safely and comfortably, reducing the risk of a ‘mingery’! (or other total clit-astrophe’s!)

We offer 1-to-1, 2-to-1 and 3-to-1 private tuition, as well as discounts for block-booking to help you keep the cost manageable, and you can email or facebook me to arrange suitable times and dates to do these lessons.
