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.
