Fitness should be fun, not a chore! One of the best ways to stay committed to a fitness program is to find something that engages you mentally, creatively, and that consistently provides you with new challenges and skills to learn. Here at Luxe we offer a variety of classes that we feel do just that!

45 Minute Trial Class:
- Saturday at 2:00pm on July 6th
Level 1 Beginner 6-week Courses:
- Mondays at 6:30pm starting July 15th – Waitlist only
Level 1 Pole:
For people with no or limited pole dance experience, this 6 week course is where we learn how to take flight! We will cover some basic spins, transitions, and floorwork, as well as start conditioning exercises for more advanced pole tricks.
It is highly recommended that you take the classes in order (ie. don’t start on Week 3!) and you may want to repeat Level 1 before moving up to Level 2.
Level 2 Pole:
For those who have completed our Level 1 course or who have taken classes before. In this class we will start learning how to climb and sit on the pole, as well as spins, transitions, and floorwork that require more strength. You will need to wear shorts that leave the upper thigh exposed or that can be rolled up to be able to climb & sit on the pole.
In order to move up to Level 3 and start learning inversions you must be able to climb to the top of the pole. You may want to repeat Level 2 at least once.
Level 3 Pole:
For those who have completed our Level 2 course or have equivalent experience. Must be able to climb to the top of the pole (11ft) and hold a pole sit. Time to go upside down and start working on our inversions! The tricks and conditioning in this level are a lot more challenging, if you find yourself struggling we suggest taking our Balance & Conditioning class as well to help build up those pole muscles! Please wear shorts that leave the upper thigh exposed or that can be rolled up for this class.
Level 4 Pole:
For those who have completed our Level 3 course or have equivalent experience. Level 4 students will be working on aerial inverts as well as inverted poses that predominantly use a leg grip. You must be comfortable with doing a basic invert from the floor and taking both hands off to attend this class.
Once you have completed Level 4 and are comfortable with aerial inverts, leg hangs, and leg switches you are welcome to take Pre-Advanced Pole. This class will focus on learning the foundational movements of advanced pole dancing such as shoulder mounts, butterfly, Ayesha, Brass Monkey, and more. As the skills learned at this level are much more challenging it is not broken down into 6-week courses anymore, students will likely need to spend at least a few months at this level. It is strongly recommended to also take our Conditioning class along with Pre-Advanced to make sure that you can execute skills safely and to prevent injury.
Advanced Pole Lab:
This class is for the advanced pole dancer. As the moves are very challenging at this level it’s not a ‘course’, and the moves & combos worked on will vary from week to week. Expect to be doing aerial combinations of tricks, tumbles, and moves that require a high degree of strength through the shoulders, back, core, and arms. To attend this class you should be comfortable with the following moves, ideally on both sides: Aerial Invert, Shoulder Mount, Full Body Switches, Butterfly, Superman, Brass Monkey & Ayesha (in at least one grip).
Exotic Dance Level 1:
This class is suitable for all levels, with the emphasis being on dance steps, transitions, and floorwork inspired by exotic dance style. Each week we will learn a short choreography as well as work on developing freestyle skills. Heels are optional, kneepads (the soft ones used in volleyball) recommended.
Exotic Dance Level 2:
Not equivalent to Pole Level 2! Carrying on from Exotic Dance Level 1, you should be comfortable with inversions to attend this class. Pole dance heels are recommended, but not required. We recommend ordering Pleaser brand shoes from ShoeFreaks.ca. Free shipping and no extra customs fees!
Dance & Fitness Classes
Working on increasing our flexibility, especially our active flexibility! This is not a passive stretching class, your muscles will be working. We will be doing strengthening work and using a variety of stretching techniques to take our legs higher, back bends deeper, and get those splits! All levels of flexibility are welcome to attend this class.
Balance & Conditioning:
Pole dancing is a fantastic form of exercise! However it tends to focus a lot on the upper body, and as much as we try to train both sides of our body you are always going to have your ‘favourite’ side that you prefer to do your pole work on. This can leave our bodies a little out of whack! In this class we’ll focus on restoring that balance, as well as preventing injuries and bringing up our cardio endurance so that we can pole with ease! Class is done off the pole using our bodyweight and hand weights, no pole experience necessary and open to all levels!
Gymnastics Conditioning for Pole:
Come be a kid again and work on your handstands, somersaults, and cartwheels! Gymnastics is excellent cross training for pole, can be added to the floorwork portion of a pole routine, and is a fantastic full body workout. This class is open to all levels, progressive exercises will be provided for beginners.
This class will focus on basic engagements and conditioning for floorwork and low flow. Learning Liquid Motion exotic techniques, transitions and a simple exotic choreo routine. Of course occasionally mixing in good booty shaking session! This class is good for beginner/intermediate.
**You will need socks and knee pads.
