Welcome to Power Pole® Group Classes! We welcome all levels with open arms. To find your specific Power Pole® Level, it is important to understand the Power Pole® Levels System. Power Pole® is taught in 4 distinct POWER POLE® LEVELS:

INTRO TO POLE - First Timers Start Here

LEVEL 1 - Beginner
LEVEL 2 - Advanced Beginner
LEVEL 3 - Intermediate
LEVEL 4 - Advanced Intermediate

LEVEL 5 - Advanced

Each Power Pole® group class offered on the schedule will contain the Power Pole® Level in the name of the class as well as in the description. Some classes may allow for more than one level. For Instance, the Tricks Mix class may be a Level 3/4. This would simply means that both Intermediate and Advanced Intermediate skills will be taught in this level. And for you individually, this means skills will be taught according to your level at that time and it will be required that you master each skill according to your level before moving on to the next skill level.

To better understand how each Power Pole® Level might be defined, we have provided a description of the Power Pole® Levels with examples of the skills taught in each level. This is not an all inclusive or comprehensive list by any means, but is meant to give you just a very basic overview of each level so that you may get an idea as to your proper level.

If you have any questions whatsoever, or need help determining your level, please feel free to contact us here or via email at info@powerpolesports.com.
