Classes offered

Not all pole dancing classes are created equally. Come join our family & see for yourself why we are different! Our new customers keep saying " I learned more in one pole class then I did in 5 weeks ." Rachele Maier is Rochester NY Master pole choreographer. She is breaking the pole dance stereotype in Rochester. She is changing how people think about pole dancing! Pole dancing can be strength based, trick based, acrobatic based, amazing and beautiful. It does not have to be exotic dancer based. I guess the Old saying applies "There is a time & place for everything." Beginners please look for level 0-1 classes. Don't forget shorts & a small towel. If your interested in checking out the studio Please make an appointment.

Students move to the New level 1.5 where basic inverts are taught. Intro to Pole 101 was created to keep new people together so more experienced students are not held back.
