Acro Pole & Flow with Michula Nunez – June 22, 3.30 pm
Let’s perform feats of physical strength, balance, and agility using the pole! This workshop will focus on pole dance fillers that are acrobatic in origin! In the first hour, we will learn ACRO POLE includes the tricks that use the pole AND the floor. These fillers are gymnastics-based elements that include flips, ‘back walkovers/back handsprings’, ‘front walkovers’, valdez, handstands, shoulder stands, forearm/elbow stands, presses, planches, and rolls using the pole! These are our forte and always have new varieties to share with you! It is okay if you don’t have a gymnastics background! The pole makes these elements accessible for ALL when properly using the push/pull, tension, and friction concepts! And there is great news; these tricks are easier than they appear! Often many of these tricks were previous aerial elements and are deconstructed to a lower profile. Learning these elements will build confidence on the pole and increase overall skill, thereby becoming aerial quicker. We will start with some crowd-pleasing basics and rapidly build progressions that are technique-driven with thorough explanations!
Low spins and Acro are a great combination! In the second hour, we will learn a choreography that will focus on the ground as we take what we learned in the first hour and configure into choreography! We will create a beautiful FLOW in CONTEMPORARY POLE DANCE that is full of the jaw-dropping elements that you now possess in your arsenal of tricks!
Pole & Pinot: Storytelling with Pole Dance – April 27, 5 pm
Do you have an inspiring story that you would like to share?
Or do you like listening to stories? Do archetypes resonate with you?
Let’s come together, tell each other stories, and make them alive!
In this 2 hour workshop, we will reach each other through inspiring stories. We will experience the power of storytelling. Then we create pole dance choreography from our stories, walk and move through them. We will reconnect with the wild women deep inside us. We will embody our stories and connect with each other through storytelling & pole dance.
We will seal our evening with a glass of wine.
Stories heal us. Pole dance and fitness make us stronger. Wine makes us happy.
That’s why this workshop will work for us!
Cheers to our stories, movements, community, and pole dance!

Vision boards are an amazing way to begin invoking the Law of Attraction.
When you give your dreams a visual representation, your emotions connect to those desires more powerfully. And emotions stimulate the process of the law attraction by keeping you more motivated to take the daily required actions to bring your desires into your reality.
We will get closer to our dreams with visual presentation and embody our dreams & emotions with pole movements. Workshop starts with 1 hour Vision Board presentation & creation and continues with 1 hour pole choreo. Let’s find our connections with our dreams together!
