I believe you can fly

In the past few years, we've seen more and more flying poles appering on social media and even in circus shows. In a constant quest of finding new apparatuses to impress the audiance or for oneself to meet new challenges, the flying pole -or suspended pole- is believed to be a mix between the chinese pole and a Mexican traditional aerial dance, La Danza de los Voladores.


Personally, I was scared of the flying pole at first.; it looked so cool but so hard! I'm not gonna lie, it is much harder physically than the regular pole. But it's so much fun, I promise!


OK I WANNA TRY IT


Did you know that when you rent the studio at Calmness Hotline you can ask for the flying pole? You'll get the regular set up of two poles (which can be set in static or spining mode as desired), but you'll also have access to one suspended pole to experience the feeling of flying.


The main difference with regular pole is that you're not spining around the pole, the whole thing is moving with you! So if you go in a straight line, you'll get more of a swinging movement. But also, when you do moves that require you to push in the pole, for example a Butterfly, the pole position will shift and it might be difficult at first to find the correct balance in your body.


I'M NOT SURE I CAN DO IT ON MY OWN


What's very different from regular pole is honestly the entries and exits. You need to know where you're going and it's a different direction then what you'd expect. But don't worry! We've got you covered.


A first flying pole workshop is coming up very soon! Narlton will be giving a 2 hours long workshop specifically on how to enter your combos and how to get out of it gracefully. It is not focused on the combo itself, that why the recommanded level to assist is intermediate.


There's only 4 spots available, so make sure you secure your place now. This special workshop is happening this Saturday, May 27th at 3:30 PM.
