Pole Dance Classes
At Blush we focus on helping you progress at a pace and level that is right for you. We don’t run mixed level classes, so your time in lessons is designed for your ability and you build bonds with students just like you. If you are joining us from a break or another school you don’t have to start at the beginning, just get in touch, we can recommend the best class for your level.
Our classes are levelled to ensure you are working alongside students of a similar level and are coached into achievable, safe and effective moves for your ability and experience. This promotes a strong foundation in the body and a better rate of progression. It increases motivation, reduces injury and builds confidence in your skill.
Whether you have experience in pole fitness or are brand new, we have classes for your level. We have an extensive syllabus of moves, combinations and routines which are sectioned into 8 levels. Each level incorporates a healthy variety of moves, climbs, spins and routines.
Syllabus At each level we introduce you to new challenges, moves, tricks and routines. This provides you with ongoing progression and increased confidence and skills in pole dancing. Once you have gained confidence and skills to perform all the pole dance moves at a level you graduate to the next level.
By encouraging you to recognise your progression you are building confidence in skills other than fitness. This format builds life skills that increase resilience. So while we ensure all your pole dance lessons are effective you can rest assured you will always be motivated, inspired, challenged, and celebrating your success along with us.
Here is a summary of what type of moves you can expect to achieve at each level:
Level 1 – Complete Beginners. Suitable for complete beginners, all ages, abilities and levels. At this level you will learn the foundations of pole dancing, completing exercises, tricks, spins and moves which build into simple routines demonstrating and increasing your strength and confidence on the pole.
Level 2 – Amateur. Suitable for students with some pole fitness experience. With a foundation understanding of basic pole exercises and routines, you will learn more challenging spins using different grips and multiple shapes in flight. You will develop further tricks higher up the pole and begin to build confidence inverting.
Level 3 – Intermediate. Suitable for students who have confidence at all level 1 and 2 moves. At this level we explore inverted moves, tricks which require a strong ability to climb and perform more complex moves and routines on the pole.
Level 4 – Advanced Intermediate. Suitable for students who have improved their ability beyond intermediate. With a good foundation in intermediate moves at this level we explore how these can be taken to new heights with tricks which require more strength and flexibility.
Level 5 – Foundation Advanced. Suitable for students who are confident at all moves in the levels preceeding level 5 and looking for a new challenge. At level 5 we look at arms only moves, high level drops, tricks and transitions which require strength, skill and a high level of flexibility.
Level 6 – Advanced. Suitable for students who are confident at all foundation advanced moves. At Advanced level we work to develop arms only skills to be incorporated in longer combinations and more daring dynamics. Moves become challenging and students become highly skilled at developing their own performances and training schedules.

At Elite level we work with students personal strengths, what can improve a students ability to become high level performers and competitors.
