We are a fairly new society that offers pole and hoop classes. Pole fitness is a more unconventional way to get fit and we believe it's empowering for everyone. Classes are offered for beginners all the way to advanced levels so everyone is welcome to try!
We compete in the IUPDC (Inter-University Pole Dancing Competiton) in beginner, intermediate, advanced and group competitions - training will be provided for the IUPDC.
Classes are held in the Hutton Hall (above the SU) on College Lane every Wednesday. Some of the classes we offer are:
All Ability Pole
The associated Studio at Herts Dance & Fitness is located in Welwyn Garden City offer more classes such as hoop, pole and circus. Classes held at Herts Dance & Fitness are offered to student members at a discounted rate of £7 an hour. Classes are usually £10 an hour for non-members.
The studio also offers supporting classes which will help you get better in Pole Dance and Aerial Arts such as -
+ Circus Flyers - Conditioning Classes which uses rope and hammocks which develops strength & Flexibility
+ Flexibility Flow - for flexibility and splits
+ Dance Training - works on dance skills of your choice (ballet, contemporary, classique)
Classes are held in the Hutton Hall, College Lane. Our classes are taught by a highly qualified pole instructor, Vanessa.
I've never done Pole or Hoop Classes before, what should I wear? - We recommend wearing a short tee, shorts. Do not moisturise or fake tan before pole class as you are more likely to slip off the pole and you may struggle with grip. For hoop classes we recommend to cover skin, such as leggings.
Beginners or Mixed Ability? - Our beginner class works through basic pole moves and techniques and is perfect for those just starting out or coming back to pole after a bit of a break. We recommend mixed ability classes for those with a bit more experience. This class is great for all ability levels (beginners too!) as our instructor will teach moves with variations to fit everyone, and for those who are more capable, this is your chance to work on more advanced tricks!
How much does membership cost? - Membership cost £12 for students and non-students £18 and this year we offer a semester only membership for £8. Membership can be purchased on the right-hand side.
What's the price per class? - Pole classes and Flexibility Flow sessions are both £4.50 per session. This is a great deal compared to the £10 per session the studio usually charges. Lollipop lyra Classes are TBA.
Do you hold any socials, I would like to make new friends? - We are holding socials throughout the year with themes, drinking and non-drinking and society outings. There will be a social for everybody. Socials will be announced via Facebook.
