What will I learn in level 3?
To begin level 3, you should already know how to perform a shoulder dismount and be able to invert on the spinning pole. You should have already learnt a range of inverted static figures, such as extended butterfly, scorpio, brass monkey, superman and dragonfly.
In this level, you will work on perfecting your shoulder mount and reiko mount and start to train the handspring. You will learn a range of more difficult figures on the pole, using increasing strength, balance and flexibility. These include ayesha, allegra, dragontail, and various bridges, such as secretary and brass monkey bridge. In class, you will attempt longer combos and more advanced transitions & grips.
Level 3 classes take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 20:15 to 21:30. At this level, is is recommended to take 2 classes per week if possible. This will help you to perfect and retain new figures, experiment with variations and transitions, and makes for easier progression to the next level.
