Pole Dance & Aerials will help you lose weight, tone up, feel more confident and have a new lease on life. You do not need to have any level of fitness, coordination, dance ability or flexibility to start BUT you do need a commitment to yourself to turn up.
In your classes at Elements Pole & Aerial, we will help you each week to learn the basic tricks, spins and dance moves in a fun and supportive environment. It is addictive and it is very sociable – you will make friends and it will change your life! We are here to support your new journey.
We run 4 week introduction courses in either pole, lyra, silks and other modalities. If you fall in love with your new hobby then you signup for an ongoing membership and keep progressing.
There is a chance that your first chosen time and day for your level may change in the future due to changes in class movement but we will work with you and ensure your smooth journey.
In each class you will do a warm up, cool down, conditioning and strength exercises and progress to learning transitions and or routine.
WHAT IS TEAMUP?
TeamUp is our online booking & payment system. You will use teamup to book your first course and further casual classes and open practice.
We hold a themed Performance Night throughout the year. Performance Nights is where you perform your routine with your class in front of family and friends. Each performance night has a different theme and everyone dresses up to the theme. Lyra, Silks and Pole all perform. Of course this is always optional, you don’t have to perform if you don’t want too.
STUDENT CREATIONS NIGHT
This is a more low key event than Performance Night. Creations night is an opportunity for you to create your own routine and perform only in front of close friends and family.
We have a social club and regularly go on outings to places like Bounce, Ice Skating, Inflatable World… we are totally open for all suggestions. So if you are interested in meeting more people and having fun in groups Elements is the place for you.
BATTLE OF THE ELEMENTS – IN HOUSE COMPETITION
Pole Dance and Aerial has become very competitive state, national and international competitions are run regularly around Australia and the world. We like to give our students an opportunity to compete in a very relaxed studio atmosphere. The competition usually happens around September each year.
Open practice is a time where you can come into the studio and practice what you have been learning. The timetable will say whether there is an Instructor available to assist you (WI).
We regularly have outside instructors coming to the studio for workshops plus others held by our own instructors. These workshops help you progress in your journey. Keep an eye out on the facebook group or emails.
You have a choice to come once a week to your pole class but to get the most out of your membership we recommend you come to as many casual classes and open practice time as you can. This will see you progress a lot faster
MOVING UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL
With each level you must be able to master each trick on both sides confidently, if yourself or the instructor feels you are not doing this safely and confidently then they will talk with about repeating your current level or suggest other solutions for you. Repeating a level is not considered bad, it gives you the opportunity to really master the tricks and give you much more confidence (it is all about technique).
Some people struggle with gripping the pole.. It is quite normal Don’t worry about this, we have grip aids at the studio to help with this
WHAT TO WEAR
Wear Shorts or bike pants so you have plenty of skin to grip the pole. Any type of tshirt is fine.
Do not moisturise or shave your legs prior to the class, this will make you too slippery to us the pole.. Those dry scaly legs are perfect for grip (don’t worry, everyone else in the studio is the same)
FOR LYRA OR SILKS
Long tights and a tight tshirt.
Casual Classes must be pre-booked on our website and if you are unable to attend you need to cancel yourself. The Casual Class timetable varies and is available on our website and ap.
We reserve a pole for you in your chosen class! It is your responsibility to make it to your booked classes, but in the case that you can’t make it, we do offer catch ups with the following options:
Same Level, different time slot IF there is a spare pole in that class. Same Level, different time slot, sit and observe and take notes if there is no spare pole for you
Open Practice with Instructor. Check the current Timetable for days and times that this is available. Keep in mind with this option that this is not a private lesson for you (but you can book one if you want to!), and there may be other students wanting to catch up as well, so in general, you will have 10-15 minutes with the Instructor, so be warmed up and ready to go!
Also, keep in mind that if you can’t catch up on a missed class, we usually go over the previous weeks class content at the next lesson, and even though it isn’t in as much detail, you can catch up that way and then practice practice practice!
