Pole dancing is a great way to keep fit and increase your confidence! You will learn how to dance, spin and eventually perform tricks inverted (upside down) on the pole, once you have mastered the basics. Anyone can give pole dancing a go: any shape, any size, any level. Emily’s Pole Fitness will help you to increase your strength, flexibility and confidence, so you can reach your full potential on the pole.
We have classes for all levels running in the evenings from Monday to Thursday.
Aerial hoop is a circus art form, also known as lyra. A steel hoop is suspended in the air, and one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics and gymnastic-style moves on it. You will be amazed at the things you will learn in the air on an aerial hoop and will eventually be able to start linking poses together to create your own routines. It is suitable for all levels.
Aerial hoop classes at Emily’s Pole Fitness run in four-week blocks, or courses, on Sunday afternoons for beginner, intermediate and advanced students. A mixed ability class is also available on Wednesdays at 7.20pm.
Aerial silks is another circus art form, also known as tissu. Aerial acrobatics are performed by one or more artists wrapping themselves in and hanging from two strands of suspended fabric. You will learn the basics of aerial silks, beginning with creating beautiful poses and climbing, and building up to inverting.
Aerial silks classes at Emily’s Pole Fitness run on Thursdays at 6pm.
Aerial Hoop & Silks for Children
Aerial hoop and aerial silks are a great work out for kids! It challenges their co-ordination and focus as well as developing strength and flexibility, all while letting them climb and hang upside down just like circus performers! All our lead instructors are fully qualified and insured to teach aerial hoop and aerial silks to children, as well as having first aid and DBS certificates. Classes are available for younger children aged 5-9 years old, and older children aged 10-15 years old.
As you advance in pole and aerial arts, flexibility becomes more important to prevent injury and achieve those next big moves. We run a weekly stretch class for all levels – from people who can’t yet touch their toes, to people who already find the splits easy. The knowledgeable, bendy and skilled instructors at Emily’s will challenge everyone at a safe and appropriate level. Sessions take place on Fridays at 7.40pm; each session is one hour long and costs £10.
