If you’re an Intermediate + Pole Dancer, Lyra Artist, experienced Aerial Yoga student or Gymnast - enrolling into Pearls Sling is great place to start. In our Pearls level, we assume that you already have the strength to lift your body weight! In this four week course, you will learn how to complete basic wraps, climbs, spins and poses. You will also be working on conditioning your strength to lift and twist into shapes for when you reach Emeralds (intermediate two). Along with learning technique and developing strength, you will also learn how Sling can be used as an artistic expression through a routine that will showcase some of the skills you have acquired!
Must be able to invert on a Pole or Lyra, or have completed up to Emeralds (Inter 2) level or equivalent in either apparatus. Aerial Yoga babes are also welcome to join the Pearls course rather than Babydoll.
What to Bring:
It is very important to wear an outfit that has no buckles, buttons, zippers, rhinestones, clasps or anything that can potentially snag the fabric of the sling.
All Jewellery, watches and sharp pointed nails and body piercings are also not permitted (you can cover nails and piercings with thick strapping tape - Bandaids don’t hold for the whole lesson).
Ideal outfit choices would be:
1. Tight Leggings (like yoga style) and t-shirt or sports bra
2. Stockings (no garter belts as belts can snag fabric) with a leotard over the top. No fishnets, toenails must be covered.
3. A tight onesie leotard!
4. Socks are a must (no bare feet!)
The backs of your knees and mid-section should be covered completely.
Please make sure you shower before class (if possible), always wear deodorant and bring a sweat towel to help us keep the best standards of hygiene for all students. Fabric holds smells more than our other apparatus - so don’t be offended if we ask to do an “arm’s up” line-up and your instructor will spray everyone with deodorant.
Please be mindful that if you come to class with any item that can snag the fabric of the sling, you will not be permitted to participate in the lesson. If the fabric snags while you are on it, it can be very dangerous for you - or for the next person that uses the apparatus.
