Once you have the foundations in place, you are ready to join our improvers class. Similar to beginners this level builds on the skills you have learnt so far. You will link together more complex combinations and authentic style transitions. We are now ready to introduce performance techniques as everything falls in place and you gain in confidence. You will have gained in strength whilst in beginners and will be ready to start working on inverting and climbing up the pole.


Your lesson will incorporate posture and performance, body conditioning, strengthning and flexibility so that you are building all the skills you need to progress.


Before progressing you will have Carousel arm only spins under your belt. You will master a basic invert along with an inverted crucifix, where you hold on to the pole with just your legs. You should be able to climb the pole comfortably and your dancing and flow will be at a level where you can comfortably link together dancing with lower pole flow and floorwork. This may sound like a lot to complete. Don't worry. There is no timescale and you can stay at this level as long as you need.



By now everything should be falling into place. you will be stronger than you ever imagined possible.  You will be dancing all over the place linking complex  floor work, lower pole flow and true authentic style dancing together with harder holds and a whole host of different inverted moves in stripper heels, which have probably got much higher! As moves become more advanced you will need to invest more training time to attain the more difficult moves.

Your lesson will incorporate posture and performance, body conditioning, strengtning and flexibility so that you are building all the skills you will need to progress.

Before progressing you will master one handed spins, you will be comfortable to perform both freestyle and set routines authentic style to a high level. You will be able to aerial invert and shoulder mount.  Your flexibility will be well on the way to achieving a split, again there  is no rush to progress. You can spend time working on increasing your flexibility gradually whilst you acomplish moves such as aerial teddys and single leg hangs.

Many of our students are happy to remain at this level and have no desire to chase moves that shock, tricks that defy gravity and inverts that require the splits.
