Bend and Flex:

This class is designed to help students seeking greater active and passive flexibility for improved athletic and artistic performance.  Exercises will be adjusted for students of all levels, from complete beginners to athletes ready to achieve a professional look for the purpose of a career in the circus arts.   By using the most effective stretching techniques including Assisted, Isometric and PNF to target tight muscles groups, we will work towards opening our backs, splits and straddles. Mobility and breathing exercises will help students learn to release tension and gain strength in their deepest ranges of motion.  By tapping into the body’s natural response to stretching, we will learn to work with our body for greater freedom and ease of movement.

Duration and Rate:

  • 1.5 hrs
  • $25 / class


  • Must be 18 years or older

What to wear: Skin contact with the pole is necessary in order to provide grip and hold for pole moves. We recommend clothing that provides the best opportunity for contact with the pole; shorts and a tank top generally work great for this. Also, it’s best to refrain from using lotion on days that you intend to take a pole class.

Days and Times:

    • Wednesdays 7:30 – 9:00 pm
