The Spin City pole fabric instructor course will teach you how to effectively use the pole fabric clamp system to support and adapt existing moves and will expand your repertoire to include a range of fabric specific techniques.

The theory section of this course will teach you the basic rules of working with a fabric clamp, fabric terminology and safe grip variations, how to adapt existing pole moves from your syllabus onto fabric, different methods of class planning and fabric specific health and safety. The practical section of this course will cover over 100 different techniques, from adaptations on standard pole moves to new moves created by the addition of the fabric, to combining these into combinations, sequences and choreography. We will finish with different ways to incorporate conditioning exercises into your pole fabric classes to create cross-training options for your students.

UNIT 1 – INTRODUCTION TO POLE FABRIC

As a starting point, we will introduce you to the basics of using a pole fabric clamp system. This ranges from understanding the nature of the fabric and how it is inherently different from the pole to correct shoulder positioning and the importance of safety over aesthetics. We will cover height of clamp, momentum and lifting, body position, progression and the basic hand grips.

UNIT 2 – BASIC MOVES

Our second unit is the main body of this course. We will cover over 100 different move variations: some from classical pole moves, some classically performed on fabric and some fusing the two disciplines. Each move will be detailed with teaching points, safety points, progressions, regressions, and common problems.

UNIT 3 – ADAPTING POLE MOVES ONTO FABRIC

Unit 3 is where we will teach you how to analyse your current pole syllabus to consider which moves can transfer over onto fabric by following our 12-stage assessment.

UNIT 4 – POLE FABRIC CLASS PLANNING

In unit 4, we will give you a range of different formats in which to structure your individual classes. We will discuss how to build your syllabus using a system of safe progression and the benefits of incorporating conditioning and combinations in to your lesson structure.

UNIT 5 – CLASS PLANNING CHOREOGRAPHY

To demonstrate successful pole fabric choreography, we will teach you a sample routine combining classical pole moves with new techniques and effective transitions. Within this unit, we will also discuss how to create your own pole fabric choreography toolbox full of possible links and transitions.

UNIT 6 – HEALTH AND SAFETY

Health and safety is fundamental to effective pole fabric classes. In this unit, we will look at key health and safety concepts such as public liability insurance and risk assessments. We will also cover specific fabric health and safety considerations, such as clothing, hand care and equipment care.
