Exotic Pole Flow

Taught by a real live exotic entertainer, AfroDiejiac, Exotic Pole Flow is a sensual and delightfully lascivious pole dance class. All body types/weights, ethnicities, genders, lifestyles, ages are welcome! This class is more dance than fitness based and will focus on stretching techniques for flexibility/splits, beginner and intermediate pole positions, sexy and expressive floor work, creating flowing transitions between pole tricks, incorporating floor work with your pole routines, polishing basic pole tricks and adding flair and of course… audience seduction techniques.

Nia

Nia is mind/body physical conditioning program that originally stood for Non-Impact Aerobics. A health and fitness alternative that emerged in the ’80’s, NIA evolved to include neurological integrative practices and teachings. Alchemy teachers have created their own artistic interpretations of Nia. These classes are perfect if you love music and dance but want something a bit lower impact on your body. We have several NIA teachers at Alchemy, each with her own mood and style. Come dance with us!
