HEELS CLASSES

heels

Discover what sexy confidence means to you in our Heels class.

We will start class with some exercises to strengthen our ankles and legs to help with stability in heels (from 4″ heels to those 8″ Pleasers) before moving into a super sassy combo with hair whips and lots of hips! This class breaks down the technique to execute steps with flair! Class ends with a floorwork trick that you can use 100% transferable to exotic pole!
Bring a pair of heels (see FAQ for more info on which heels to bring), a water bottle, knee pads, and get ready to sweat!

heels FAQ’s

What should I wear to heels class?

Wear something comfortable you can dance, squat, bend over, and move your hips in. Comfortable workout clothes – shorts, leggings, tank tops, sports bras, etc. work well. Outfits that make you feel sexy are welcomed, though they should not restrict your movement or require you to readjust constantly. No jeans. Knee pads are encouraged for choreography with floorwork.

What heels should I wear? 

If this is your first time dancing in heels, I’d recommend wearing 1-2″ stiletto heels. Block heels and boots (instead of sandals or open toe shoes) offer more stability. Shoes should be comfortable enough to dance in; try walking around at home first. If you do not yet have dance heels, jazz shoes or socks can be worn. No Pleasers (platform heels often higher than 6″ tall) please. 

If you are looking to buy a new pair of heels, I’d recommend investing in a pair of dance heels (Burju is a great option). These shoes are specially designed to be danced in and are more comfortable and better balanced than street shoes. I’d recommend heels no higher than 4″ tall.

FLOOR WORK CLASSES

floor play

Work the floor with choreographed routines, combining sexy movements, heels clacks, and flexy fun! Floor Play will help take your floor work to the next level! Students are encouraged to bring heels and knee pads (or leggings) but it’s not required!

FLEXIBILITY & STRENGTH CLASSES

flexy moves stretch lab

What are your flexy pole goals? Bring a pole move you want to improve or that move you’ve always wanted to try to Stretch Lab! Class will be catered to the students’ goals, providing exercises to stretch and strengthen your body! Along this journey, we will explore photoshoot-worthy floor shapes (with and without the pole) that utilize similar muscles!

Students should message LisaBella their pole moves at least 24 hours prior to class to allow time for lesson planning. In this hybrid class, priority will be given to in-person students’ goals.

The focus of this class is on preparing the body for flexible pole moves through stretches, exercises, and floor shapes. We will not be attempting moves up-the-pole in this class and no spots will be provided. For students taking this class online, a pole is not required to participate. The majority of the class will be taught off-the-pole and students are welcome to modify floor shapes that do utilize the pole.

Invert Conditioning

This one hour class focuses on conditioning to learn or strengthen your inversions. We will use our body weight and the pole to condition basic invert, chopper and shoulder mounts.
Prerequisite: None. Open to ALL levels.
