By using your body & gaze as momentum you will have a whole new approach to pole dancing. 

Rather than focussing on choreography, Fluidity will give you short sequences of movement that swirl & roll from ground & floor and back again, every single week.  You will find new movement pathways that will benefit you in any form of movement.

DEVLOPE´ FOR DAYS

Leg lines & extensions 

with Jaq

Leg lines, visually beautiful yet difficult to achieve.  To extend is not solely about the final pose, how you get there with length & control is the key to optimising your extension. Achieving line uses many more body parts than just the legs, AND it is not necessarily all about flexibility!  Whaaaat..??!!

 

Learn exercises, tips and even some little magic tricks to maximise your leg extensions, and take your dancing to a whole beautiful new place. 

 

Whether you dance barefoot, in heels, on the floor, or with the pole, this 3-week course will benefit you greatly.

 

3-week course coming in Term 3

Monday 31st May - 21st June; 8.30pm

Open to all levels, all bodies

Bring heels (if this is your jam), barefoot is fine
