Chinese poles are vertical poles of aluminum on which circus performers climb, slide down and hold poses. These poles are generally between 3 and 9 metres in height and approximately 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Beginners welcome.
*Arrive 15 mins prior to the start of class for warm-up and stretching.
DROP-INS (stopping by for a one-off class) welcome for this skill*. List the date(s) you would like to attend and your level in the "special instructions" on the check-out/cart page after you have added your product(s). Drop-in date may be amended within same cycle providing minimum 24hrs notice is provided and does not impact on enrolment requirements. *Subject to availability and course having met minimum enrolment requirements.
Appropriate clothing and footwear must be worn for Chinese Pole. Students are advised to wear long johns or leggings under old jeans with a belt. If you are trying the class for the first time we recommend that you wear plimsoles, soft flexible trainers or Feiyues (it is a good idea to find some shoes a size smaller than you would normally wear). If you would like to continue training in Chinese Pole, we would strongly recommend that you purchase professional Chinese Pole footwear such as Tabi boots, which can be purchased online (ebay is a great source).
Adult classes are for ages 16+
