SpeakEasy Noir: Pole Flow Workshop (Baltimore Pole Dance)
August 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT$40
Pole Flow is a specialty SpeakEasy Noir pole dance workshop in the open level initiation series. In this class, explore the essential elements of fluid sensual dance while executing foundational pole moves. Utilizing basic spins, transitions, and exploratory prompts, we will increase your movement vocabulary flow using the pole as an apparatus, prop, and dance partner. This two-hour workshop is open to all levels of pole experience. As this workshop includes movement sequences, burlesque inspiration and creative prompts, all levels of pole experience will be challenged. This workshop includes a grounding, sensual full body warm-up ritual that includes low flow and floorwork that aids in strength and conditioning for the pole.
- What to Bring (required): Yoga Mat. Face Mask (perhaps, bring a backup one, as you will sweat.)
- What to Bring (optional): Face Towel. Water. Knee Pads. Pole Grip. Leg Warmers/Thigh High Socks
- What To Wear: Class attire should be comfortable, sensual, and layered. Throughout the workshop, we incorporate our clothing into our movement. Tanks/Short Sleeve shirts & shorts or cropped pants that can be rolled to expose the back of your knees. Exposed skin is helpful for gripping the pole. You can wear your favorite intimates and lingerie, athleisure wear, yoga wear, or full costumes. Bring options. Approved dance heels welcome (no stilettos or streetwear). Please refrain from using body lotions or oils prior to class. Please remove jewelry.
- Optional: Bring a friend and share a pole! If you are interested in sharing a pole and experiencing this workshop with a ‘pole partner’ please call the studio and we can sign you up! It’s important that we keep track of partners as we only have four poles available for use.
SpeakEasy Noir is a sensual movement experience & an immersive mind-body wellness practice. We explore Power, Pleasure & Play through erotic movement and emotional expression. Our rituals and healing arts promote freedom and personal transformation through creative play.
Our pole dance program is a method of instruction focused on expression, musicality, and intention. Pole classes are structured around sequences, choreography, and theatrical prompts which also include movement on and around the pole, floor work, transitions, and spins.
