Committee Membership

all

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 Championship) annually where you have the opportunity to compete in beginner, intermediate, advanced, semi-pro or group categories - 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:

Flexibility Flow

Beginners Pole 

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 £TBC an hour. Classes are usually £12 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 - 

+ Aerial conditioning - Conditioning classes using a variety of aerial apparatus to work on your strength & flexibility.

+ Stretch & Flex - To increase your flexibility to help you nail those aerial tricks. Flex is also a great way to relax and de-stress.
 
+ Dance Training - Classes to work on dance skills of your choice.

Our classes are taught by highly qualified pole instructor, Vanessa.

I've never done Pole or Hoop Classes before, what should I wear? - We recommend wearing shorts so you can grip with your legs. Racer back tops are best as some moves require grip just behind the armpit and the traps. The more skin you have available to grip the pole, the easier it will be! 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 covering 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 break. We recommend mixed ability classes for those with 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 £10 for students and non-students £18 and this year we offer a semester-only membership for £8. Membership can be purchased at the bottom of the page.

What's the price per class? - Pole classes are £4.50 and Flexibility Flow sessions are £3.50 per session. This is a great deal compared to £12 per session that studios usually charge.

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 and Instagram.

*Please note: You should arrive 5 mins before the start time of your class. If you miss the warm-up you will not be allowed to take part and your ticket will not be refundable*
