What to expect from an exotic dance class at Feelin’ Peachy
Every class starts with a warm up, usually in bare feet, to get our bodies prepped and primed for the unique challenges of exotic dance class. From there, we will don our high heels (or not, they are not essential) and get ready for class; there are specific brands of heels that work well for pole dancing, but to begin with, you can wear a regular set of heels to see if it’s for you!
Exotic dance classes focus specifically on the techniques around dancing in shoes, and because there is SO much to learn class content will vary, but you can expect to learn the following during an average heels course:
The mechanics of dancing in high heel shoes. There are lot to think about when you go from dancing barefoot to in heels, and these include balance points, muscle engagement and weight distribution. Peach has you covered!
Spins, combos, and transitions are the essential elements which come together to create what we call exotic ‘flow’ – basically a pretty word for moving from one move to the next in a fluid motion. You will learn new and innovative ways to move around the pole and between moves.
Choreography is an important aspect of every exotic dance course, and you can expect to work on a new short choreographed routine each month.
Floor work, as well as being a great deal of fun, often plays an essential role in any choreographed exotic routine.
Performance – not only does Peach show you how dance in high heels, but also how to perform those moves and give them that extra bit of attitude!
Freestyle – Peach believes it is important for every student to learn to dance freely and without following her. She doesn’t want mini me clones, but to give you the confidence to express yourself and dance in a way that is comfortable for you. Although freestyle sounds very scary, Peach has exercises and techniques to get you EXCITED to freestyle.
Each class is finished with a cool down, with plenty of stretching to improve your flexibility and soothe your aching muscles (because pole dancing in heels isn’t just a great laugh, it’s a great workout too!).
Want to get started?
We usually request that people complete at least 1-2 months of a Beginner Pole Dancing course (either at Feelin’ Peachy or another studio) before signing up for their first exotic dance class. Why? Because it’s hugely beneficial to start your exotic journey with some basic pole knowledge – you will be grateful for the anatomical understanding, body awareness and fitness you’ve gained from those classes when transferring those skills to your exotic classes.
However, this isn’t essential, and you can start an exotic class without this background if you wish.
