Flexibility Foundations- Bend & Balance
April 28th at 4PM
This 2-hr workshop will explore flexibility and balancing. Beginning with a thorough pilates-style core warm-up, we will practice proper alignment and stretching techniques for various leg and hip openers, spending some time on split drills before indulging deeply in backbends. Breaking down the back into lower lumbar, middle thoracic, and upper cervical, we will learn how to isolate and target each part of the spine, working on spinal articulations and diving deep into those hips and shoulders. Once we’re all warm and stretched, we will explore balance poses and inversions, such as standing leg scales, forearm-stands, and head-stands. If you’re seeking to increase your flexibility and mobility, conquer the bendy pose of your dreams, or explore the upside-down realm of inversions, this workshop is for you! We’ll be hitting splits, straddles, backbends, and inversions! All levels are welcome, as students may practice within their flexibility and strength tier.
Flexibility Foundations is taught by Kara Nova, who has a great love for stretching. Kara has trained in the circus arts since 2010, studying acrobatic stretching, contortion, and technique. Formerly a pole acrobat herself, she now focuses on contortion through performance, practice, and sharing the art of bending with others.
Workshops with Rhiannan Nichole
Base Work & Floor Tricks 4/28 @ 2PM
This one will have us focusing on dynamic ticks that utilize the base of the pole as well the open floor. We’ll be working on some hard hitting movements in this workshop so be sure to bring knee pads. Heels are helpful for protecting the toes and adding another element of fun but certainly aren’t required. In addition to safe and proper technique in somersaults and shoulder stands, Rhiannan will be going over favorites like the Venus Fly Trap, Kip Whip, Fish Flop, Lasso, and smooth shoulder transitions. Think... old school swag had a baby with new school punctuated maneuvers to give your dance interest and keep your audience invested. Just because it’s floor, doesn’t mean it’s easy. Students will definitely need to be of an intermediate skill level or higher to benefit from this curriculum.

Make It Rain 4/28 @ 4PM
Time to get nasty. In this workshop, Rhiannan takes her stripper experience and applies it to a teachable, usable method of pole dance that feels good to you while appealing to your viewer too. This is the epitome of floor humping, floppy ankles, ass bouncing, pole grinding, eye fucking, heel clacking, sneaky finger fun that every babe should know whether you’re working the club stage, seducing your lover, or just letting your freak flag fly during free style dances. This is nasty to the max and all about coaxing out the most erotic side of your deepest self and allowing it to take over. But don’t worry, Rhiannan’s curriculum for this workshop makes nasty look nice and crass look classy. You’ll learn how, where, and when to touch yourself, how to include booty popping in a timely manner, and how to use eye contact to make your audience feel indebted to you. This isn’t your typical stripper style workshop. Heels are mandatory for this one and leg warmers are very helpful. This workshop is great for students of all skill levels! It’s also helpful to wear that extra little something to really get you in the mood. This is a routine based workshop so Rhiannan will need her own pole for the duration of the class.
