Foxy POLE

Explore the Art of Pole Dancing with a pole routine geared towards increasing your pole abilities. Our Foxy POLE class uses progressive pole routines that increase in skill and duration each time you come in. You will gradually build on your routines and run through them repeatedly. As the routines lengthen and moves become more difficult, you will begin to feel the workout aspect of poling while you develop the full routine. We take our time to focus on proper technique, form, terminology, and performance and competition etiquette.

Foxy FLEX

Find Your Inner Foxy through this pole fitness training that uses pole drills and exercises to strengthen, tone, and increase flexibility. Foxy FLEX serves as a great complimentary class to the pole and will get you shredded while building up your grip, limberness, pole stamina and ability. Also serves as a great low-impact cardio workout.

Foxy FREEDOM

Free your mind, body, and pole with independent practice during an open pole session, without an instructor.
