Beginner Pole Dance Course Starts – Chester
Feb 5 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Beginner Level

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 either pay for the full 8 week course at £80 – Which to be honest is best because it secures your space for the duration of the course.

OR you can choose to pay in two £40 chunks instead (in advance) BUT once it’s time to renew the second half, you might find that there aren’t enough places as they have been pre-paid.

Improver Pole Dance Course Starts – Chester
Feb 5 @ 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Improver level

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 Pole Dance Course Starts – Chester
Feb 7 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Intermediate level

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!

You can either pay for the full 8 week course at £80 – Which to be honest is best because it secures your space for the duration of the course.

OR you can choose to pay in two £40 chunks instead (in advance) BUT once it’s time to renew the second half, you might find that there aren’t enough places as they have been pre-paid.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

A fully choreographed, sexy Burlesque routine, designed to engage and excite your audience!  This routine has been choreographed with the intention for you to later perform it for your special someone.

During your Valentine routine, the instructor will teach you:

To walk with power, prowess and confidence
Poses that command attention and show off your form
Chair work that that will engage and tantalize your viewer
Sexy shoe removal
Classic Burlesque, playful stocking removal
Sensual garment removal and how to perfectly execute ‘The Big Reveal’!

Use of props will be offered to incorporate into your routine, but it is not essential that you do, sometimes simple is best!  And as Candy & Chrome standard, you will have plenty of freedom, suggestions and support for personalisation, and expressing yourself.  Tailor it YOUR WAY!

WHAT TO BRING:

For this workshop you will need:

SHOES – Something easy to walk in, and easy to slip off!  So no buckles or straps to faff with!
STOCKINGS – Hold-up’s or Suspenders – choose your weapon!
DRESS – Something slinky, sexy and easy to slip out of!  Ideally a silk slip night dress would be perfect (Primark have really nice ones at a very reasonable price right now!), or something halter neck perhaps?
