Workshops

Please note that this is not the complete lineup of workshops – more will be added in the coming week. 

Workshops are held at different studios in the Denver / Boulder area, so please note the location of any workshops that you register for. All pole workshops are held in pole studios with permanently rigged poles, and some of the non-pole workshops are held in a movement studio with lots of open floor space. We have put together a map with all the studio locations for you, and you can always use the Pole Theatre USA Facebook group to coordinate carpooling to workshops.

If you are purchasing multiple workshops, click Add to Cart for the first workshop, then when you are redirected to the cart just click on Workshops in the left sidebar to come back here and add more workshops to your cart.

All workshops are non-refundable, but you can give/sell your spot to a friend if you need to cancel. 

Easy Can Look Hard – Kenneth Kao

Date: Friday, September 1
Time: 5:30pm – 7:00pm
Cost: $55
Location: Vertical Fusion, Boulder

Here’s the thing about Acrobatic Pole. It uses momentum and commitment to make things happen. It’s fancy, and often scary, but the truth is that with the right progressions, many moves become easy and safer than you’d think. Contained within this workshop are the flashy moves made simple. These are the crowd pleasers, the dramatic poses, the wow factors. And the best part? This is the actually the stuff that gives you the time to breathe. This is an intermediate level and up workshop.
