The Movement of the Feminine
S Factor® is a feminine movement practice - a sensuous workout for body and soul that’s intelligently designed to open the female body into her full, free, erotic expression.
Most S Factor classes are open to women only. When women gather with other women an opportunity for free self expression and sensual exploration is created. However, we know that feminine and masculine are both essences that lives within all of us regardless of gender. We also offer All Gender S Factor classes so everyone, regardless of gender, can explore the sensual and feminine parts of themselves.

This is essential to your safety and continued growth as a pole dancer. If you have some experience with Pole but are uncertain about your level, please register for the Intro/Pole Foundations (L1) class, and the Instructor can help assess your current ability. If you have never taken a pole class, please start here as well.
INTRO TO POLE/POLE FOUNDATIONS LEVEL 1:
If you have never taken a pole class, or need to brush up on the basics, this class is for you. In this class, you will be learning the fundamentals of pole technique and strength training. From walking around the pole to basic spins/floor work, various pole sits/holds, as well as instruction in climbing and basic inversions. You will walk away with all you need to progress forward in your pole journey. Please wear shorts/sports tops that provide knee, thigh, side, and armpit/elbow exposure to allow for grip on the pole.
INTERMEDIATE POLE LEVEL 2/3:
*Must have instructor approval
Ready to work on inverted moves? Then this class is for you! Created for those who are already working on twirls, climbs, and inverts, and are ready to take it to the next level. You will learn to refine your inverts, and will work on various sits, laybacks, drops, leg hangs, and will start to increase your repertoire of inverted moves such as leg/torso switches, butterfly, brass monkey, shoulder mounts etc.
Please note that this class requires prior Level 1 classes, whether from training at a different studio, or following instructor approval.
INTERMEDIATE TRICKS AND TRANSITIONS:
This class is geared towards those who are comfortable inverting and doing leg hangs. We will take your pole game to the next level after a warm-up and some conditioning both on and off the pole focused on building strength, flexibility, and range of motion in our shoulders, backs, hips, and legs. This class will start with instruction on individual tricks on static pole, and will progress to weaving the tricks together into a combo, because what good are tricks if you can’t tie them together! For extra fun and challenge, we will take the combo, or at least portions of the combo, to spin pole! The class will involve both upright and inverted tricks, drops, flips, tumbles, and countless leg hang and brass monkey variations, plus everything in between! Holds will be mostly three-point holds with options for two-point holds for the more advanced student. Please come with your favorite pole grip and ready to be challenged!
This all levels class will cover the basics of spin pole while supporting you to refine your skills. Class will begin with a group warm-up and conditioning. The next portion of class will focus on spin pole technique including various grips and spin entries. Students will then learn how to flow through a sequence of pole tricks and create shapes in the transitions.

Stretches are held for longer to reach extra depth with an emphasis on breathing to get length and will include active stretches to build strength in flexibility. Each class will focus on a particular area of the body for example, back and shoulders or, hips, glutes and hamstrings.
Our flexibility classes follow a beginner’s gymnastics style of training. This is not a yoga class. In this class, we will train active and passive flexibility starting with a cardio warm-up and moving into hip opening, spine and shoulder girdle opening. Class will incorporate shoulder mobility training and back bending. This is an all levels class appropriate for first timers to intermediate students. We’ll work on improving your lines through flexibility exercises designed to support and improve your body for pole, increasing your mobility from your head all the way to your effortlessly pointed toes.
