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.
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.
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.
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.
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 them together with several transitions.
In this level the moves get harder and the combinations get longer. You will see your strength, flexibility and stamina improve and be impressed at what your body can do. The moves might take longer to learn but they are worth it!
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 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.
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!
