Pole
Dancing

Pole Dancing for fitness is an increasingly popular way to get fitter and stronger. Try this fun way of exercising minus the boring routine. 
You don't need to have done dancing or gymnastics previously to start pole (it helps but not necessary). We help you develop your skills and strength progressively.   
Courses are available from Level 1 (Beginner 1) to Level 6+ (Elite). Our classes are run in small groups.

Aerial Hoop

Aerial Silks
(Tissu)

A beautiful form of art and aerial fitness merged into one. Doing aerial silks can improve upper body strength, range of motion/flexibility and brain function and can reduce stress. It's addictive and it's never boring!

Aerial Sling
(Hammock)

Aerial Sling (a.k.a Hammock) has increased in popularity over the past few years. If you like the idea of a fabric apparatus but don't like to work with too much height, Hammock might be just the right apparatus for you.

At the moment Sling courses are available from Level 1 (Beginner 1) to Level 3 (Intermediate 1).  Our classes are run in small groups. 

Dance
Trapeze

A dance trapeze is a hybrid of a bar and a rope apparatus. It's becoming more and more popular. The ropes of the trapeze are  attached to a single swivel, allowing the trapeze to spin easily. Students who have completed beginner level 1 of aerial hoop training successfully would be able to transition to level 2 of dance trapeze as the level 1 course contents of both are similar.
Courses are designed  progressively, each week builds on fundamentals and skills from previous weeks.
Courses are available from Level 1 (Beginner 1) to Level 3 (Intermediate 1). 

Strength &
Conditioning

​Strength & conditioning focused class - a great complementary class to your pole/aerial training.
No prior experience necessary. Our trainer will adapt to your current level of ability & fitness. This class is run as a casual class.

Kate

Kate started pole dancing back in 2012. For her it was a good way to build strength and meet new friends. And it had completely change her life for the better! Twenty kilograms less, a circle of friends she considers family, and a sense of self-confidence she’d never known before – pole was the key to it all! Kate comes from a background in education and is a versatile, experienced teacher.
She loves teaching beginners where she can share in the excitement of watching a student achieve their first climb or invert. She encourages everyone who’s ever considered pole or aerial not to put it off anymore, “No matter how unfit, uncoordinated or any other excuse you find, we will make it work and you just might fall back in love with yourself along the way.”

Kat went on to major in Contemporary Dance at Deakin University and has been teaching and performing aerials, dance and hula hoops for years but her biggest love is aerial hoop.

      Bec

      Bec's pole journey began at the first Levitate Fitness open day four years ago when she watched a group pole performance.  Bec was captivated by the strength, grace and elegance of the sport and signed up then and there!
      Ever since, Bec has used pole dancing as a way to restore her self-confidence, build strength and escape the stress of daily life. Along the way Bec has also branched into aerial silks and loves the strength that comes with it!
      Bec is also a qualified osteopath. She is fascinated by how the body works, moves and heals itself and can't wait to use this knowledge to help her students learn and progress along their own pole journeys!

        Natalie

        Nat has been doing aerial since 2017 when she started pole as a way to get fit, meet friends, and put herself out of her comfort zone. The following year led to her beginning both aerial hoop and silks, but she found her calling in aerial hoop. Since then she has enjoyed building her strength, forming friendships, improving her capability, dabbling in performing, and exploring all that aerial has to offer. Outside of the studio, Nat is currently obtaining her Bachelor of Art Psychotherapy, and aspires to support others through all aspects of life, teaching being one of them.

          Phoebe

          Phoebe is a life enthusiast and believes that fitness is the key to living a happy and healthy life. She first stepped on yoga mat in 2012 and has not stepped off since. She loves learning new skills and at the same time enjoys sharing her experiences. During her training in Bali as a Yoga instructor, she learned the importance of consistency. The key to any fitness is to practice it consistently. Phoebe mistakenly approached Aerial Silk in 2017, while looking for aerial yoga classes and this has been the best thing in her life as it opened up a new world and opportunities for her. She had fallen in love with aerial silks ever since. She has since expanded her area of interest to another apparatus. If she is not doing Silks you can find her on Aerial Hammock (Sling).
