Quality of Movement -Tricks & Transitions
$60.00 USD (90 minutes)
Beginner or Int/Adv
Sergia will share the pole tricks and transitions she is known for. Sergia uses her "Training Wheels" technique to analyze and break-down moves so that they can be grasped by muscle memory before launching into an unfamiliar set of movements. A body geek, Sergia loves to analyze the elements of tricks so that each individual has a clear understanding of points of contact and timing of weight change. Finally , Sergia will focus on quality of movement, which she believes “is why two individuals can dance the same choreography and look so completely different”. Whether it's straight legs, pointed toes, understanding contrast, dynamics, commitment, or intention. It's these elements that make it an experience for the audience to watch even the simplest of movements."
Pole As Partner: Latin Routine
$50.00 USD (60 minutes)
The pole is an excellent partner! It never argues with you or shows up to rehearsal late! Sergia will use her partner dancing background to
set a latin ballroom inspired choreography using the pole. This class will focus on dance and movement including breakdown of latin body
motion as well as steps. Find out how to use the push and pull connection that you would use with a partner with the pole. (pls bring
ballroom or character heels if you have them. Otherwise ballet or jazz shoes should be fine.)"
Sergia is also available for private lessons for June 5th or 6th only.
