With Arlene Caffrey
7:00pm – 8:15pm / €22
This is an online masterclass dedicated to resolving common stumbling blocks and sticky points when it comes to Body Waves, as well as celebrating them in all their glory!
This class is for you if you want to level up your Body Waves and achieve flow and softness to your pole dancing. The aim is to help you to improve your range of motion so that you can take up more space and improve your lines when dancing.
Arlene will share tips from her 16+ years of dedication to body waves and the Old School style. She will help you in understanding what the entire body is doing when you execute a body wave. It has little to do with being naturally flexible and is all about technique.
Arlene will guide you through an intense warm-up and then onto exercises that are specifically targeted at building better awareness of what your body is doing in a body wave, paying particular attention to shoulders, hips, hands and feet.
You will aim to build upon whatever mobility you already have, whether you are a complete beginner or already are immersed in the Old School style! Modifications will be given to suit different levels.
The class will be approx 75 mins and we will have about 10 mins for questions and answers at the end.
Level: Suitable for ALL levels; you’re never too good to improve upon your body waves.
There are no pre-requisites for this class, however if you are working with an injury please do email us in advance so that we can be aware of giving you specific modifications.
You will need: A yoga mat, yoga blocks (a cushion or nice fat book will also do the trick), and a pole. You should also switch on your camera so that Arlene can see you and give you modifications and feedback, and also so that you can see what you are doing. Please leave your microphone muted so as to minimize noise levels, unless you wish to ask a question. Pets are very welcome to join you.
A recording will be sent after the class and available to replay for 7 days only.
Limited to 14 places only. Just because it’s held over Zoom, we don’t believe in cramming 100 people in. Arlene wants to be able to see you all and give you proper feedback, as if you were in a normal class with her.
