Level 1

Level 1 The Basics

This is a great place to begin your journey of pole fitness, even if it’s to see if this is the right exercise for you. Level 1 is an introduction to pole fitness which teaches you all of the important basics. These include how to build up pole strength, the best way to move around the pole, pole safety and a wide range of spins. This Level is suitable for beginners or for anyone who wants to focus on their spins. If you come alone or with a friend, The Watermelon Studio encourages a strong sense of teamwork and encouragement in every class and level 1 is exactly where to start.

Level 2

Level 2 Confidence

Once Level 1 is completed you will be invited to join level 2. This level introduces a whole different side of pole. You will be taught more advanced spins as well as how to invert, how to climb the pole and how to sit on the pole. You well then be taught different moves you can complete after learning these techniques.

Level 3

Level 3 Strength

You will now combine the skill set from the previous levels to create some impressive moves. In this level your feet will barely touch the ground which allows for great strength building. You will begin to learn combinations for moves which allows you to change from one move to another several times without leaving the pole.

Level 4

Level 4 Elegance & Grace

At this level you will be working on advance moves and combinations. The combinations will be more difficult yet more impressive. Throughout this level there will be more focus on strength to allow for better technique and you will learn how to add more flexibility to moves. Each move in this level takes more discipline, strength, and patience to achieve the grace to make it look effortless.

Level 5

Level 5 Balance

Once you've advanced to level 5 you will learn more impressive tricks, including many of the 'dream moves' you never thought you could do. Incorporating strength, flexibility, balance, courage and technique you will create amazing tricks and learn how to put htem together with several transitions. This is our advanced class and open ended.

Pole Private

Pole Private On your own

Private Pole Lessons allow for one on one teaching which helps to fast track your pole moves. You have the pole to yourself for the full lesson which makes for more personal focus and more specific training all with a personal touch.

Pole Practice

Pole Practice Makes Perfect

Pole practice allows you to come into the studio and practice your skills on our poles. You will be guided through a warm up and then left to practice the moves you have been taught. There will be a teacher present for your safety but no teaching will occur. This class is for you to practice what you have been taught in our levels.

Pole Dance

Pole Dance

It's not always about the tricks, it's also how we move around the pole. In our pole dance classes you will learn a fun mini routine. Our Pole Dance classes are currently ran once a month and we encourage you to bring your favourite pole heels!

Pole Practice

Pole Conditioning

Come to this class for a full body work out, focusing on the strength required to improve your poling ability. With exercises on and off the pole we'll make sure you have everything you need to get stronger.

Extra Slice Classes

Extra Slice Classes

With our instructors having other commitments out with the studio, of other jobs and families etc, their availability can vary. We've decided to add 'Extra Slice' classes to our timetable. This means whenever an instructor has extra availability we will upload extra classes and/or privates. These will not be regular classes but allows us to offer as much as we can, when we can. Also showing all out availibility on the booking site.

Spin Pole

Spin Pole

We primarily train on static, but our poles have the ability to go onto spinning mode. Your instructors are now fully qualified in Xpert Spin Pole and we are delighted to bring more spinning pole to the studio. The technique required for spinning pole is very different to static and needs to be taught differently. We will be brining this into our regular classes more, as well as having spinning pole specific workshops and courses.



Looking to improve your splits? This is the class for you! We lead you through a 10 minute warm up, then focus on appropriate stretches to achieve your splits. We aim to improve your leg flexibility, which will help your technique on the pole. Our overall aim is to improve your splits and give you exercises to take home with you to continue your stretching journey.

Anyone welcome

Not recommended to those comfortable in splits, unless wishing to work on over splits.



Shoulder and back flexibility is very important when training pole, especially as you get more advanced. This class is similar to our splits class, but also covers shoulder and back flexibility.

Private Pole Practice

Private Pole Practice

Our new Pip studio allows for our regular students to train by themselves in a beautiful and safe environment. Our studio has crash mats, mirrors, 2 poles, sound system and our signature lighting. Similar to our practice sessions, this is for you to practice what you’ve been taught in our classes.
