Jan 2017 PoleDance Fitness Beginners Course Sundays
SheSizzles was formed to help women of Suffolk get their 'she' sizzling and find their happy place through the art of pole dance, burlesque and cardio hip hop fitness and yoga.
We run Pole Dancing COURSES so that you can learn to spin, fly, twirl and shimmy around and on the Pole. This is an amazing workout for your upper body and core - and the BEST workout for your confidence and sassiness!
The first thing everybody tends to say to us is "but I dont have any upper body strength, there is no way I could do this'. Believe us when we say YOU CAN! We have heard this many times. Our courses are designed for complete beginners - both a beginners to fitness and a beginner to dance. So anybody can do our Level 1 Course. Our Level 2 course is off course harder, but each week of your six week Level 1 course we work on strengthening the upper body and core, so by the time you are ready for Level 2 mentally, so is your body!!
Level 1 - Beginners
Each week we learn a new spin (so no inverting, no climbing, we stay somewhat grounded). We learn dance moves to use between each spin (so you don't get dizzy) and then we hook all the spins and moves together into a beautiful routine that gets a little harder each week. You will learn 10 spins so will have lots to show off!! There is no need to wear shorts either - leggings are fine. There is also the option of a dress up session and photo shoot. The class starts with specific pole warm ups then strength and stamina exercises, designed for pole fitness by a sports scientist. Then the spins and dance section followed by learning the fully choreographed routine. Ending with a yoga stretch and cool down.
Level 2 - Intermediates
In this level we get aerial and upside down! We learn to pole climb, do harder spins and work on adding spins together. Many of our Level 1 students do Level 2 together so there is a lovely camaraderie and support network - there are always lots of cheers when an invert is achieved!
We have recently formed a competition group for those polers wanting to compete in amateur Pole Competitions. Focusing on choreography, musicality and technique.
Once you are on a course you are then welcome to attend our regular pole get-togethers, called 'PoleJams'. These are the first Friday of every month, 8-9.30pm. On these fun filled nights you can practice and consolidate your pole skills, learn new spins and tricks and meet other polers.
What to wear? Regular workout clothes are fine for Beginners - leggings, 3/4 capris and a t-shirt are recommended. No need to wear shorts just yet! Bring a towel and water.
