The Elements Intensive is an 8 hour intensive over the course of 2 days that dives into the backbone of pole dance. Be prepared to evolve yourself as a pole dancer, competitor, trainer, teacher, and performer by learning skills on how to create longevity in your pole career. Be immersed in spin pole technique, the blue print for creating, and learning choreography, the process of staying grounded while still feeling like an aerialist, and activating parts of your mind body that will open you to becoming the most well-rounded, fluid pole dancer you can possibly be. The skills you learn in these 8 hours will allow you to continuously evolve in your pole career. The information you will be fed will be everlasting and instilled in you forever to not only better you as a pole dancer but also as a person. Join Claudia on a journey through Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire, and get ready to open your mind and body to an unforgettable experience full of valuable information, technique, and sexuality.


EARTH: Low Flow/Floor Work – Master your base work and low flow skills, learn floor work sequences, transitions, intentional directional changes, and how to use momentum to help you defy gravity.

WIND: Spin Pole – Be one with the spin pole. Learn everything you need to know about spin technique; from proper alignment, learning how to slow down/speed up the pole, and how to create clean transitions both aerially and on the floor.

WATER: Fluidity & Flexibility – If you’ve ever struggled with micro-bends, pointing your toes, flexibility, or clean transitions, “Water” will solve all your problems. We dive in to the art of grace, fluidity, and methods of illusion to help you cheat your flexibility when necessary.

FIRE: Choreography & Performing – Everything you need to know about being the best performer you can be. Learn how to “give face” at the best times, the blue print for creating/teaching choreography, and a full choreographed routine.
