Workshop Descriptions

Lyra (Aerial Hoop)
Lyra is the beautiful acrobatic art-form performed on aerial hoops. It builds up a lot of strength while you also have a lot of fun. Lots of pole students find that Lyra becomes their new love and vice versa, as both of these apparatus compliment the other and help the student achieve goals in both. We have 3 different levels to choose from, pick whichever suits your abilities. Pose it out for those pretty photos! Don’t forget your leggings.

“The Other Side”
We ALL know that every single one of us has a dominant “side” when it comes to executing pole moves – it’s why the tricks are always easier and look better! But what about our “other side”? We all say we’re going to train both sides but we rarely do! Come and play with us and work on everyone’s “favourite” side…fight the awkward feeling and the pain!
