Signature Tricks, Transitions and Combos with Phoenix

Fri 6/14/2019

6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Room: Studio A

Is "Titanic" on your list of pole moves to accomplish? Phoenix Kazree's Signature Tricks and Transitions is where you will learn all four versions of it. Along with floor to pole transitions, more signature tricks, creative ways to enter and exit classic tricks, and so much more.

This workshop is geared for Intermediate to Advanced dancers (upper L2 - L4). 

Spin Static, Spin Spin with Phoenix

Fri 6/14/2019

7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

Room: Studio A

This workshop focuses purely on spinning, both on static and on spin modes. (Spin Static) Learn spin combos on static that will take you 720 degrees around the pole. Learn static spins that end in mounting the pole to continue trick passes. (Spin Spin) Explore and experiment with approaching and mounting spin pole other than step and climb. Learn how to take off in both directions as well as working the spin pole with single arm holds.

This workshop will be geared toward beginner-intermediate dancers (Pole L1-L3), but even the most advanced students will find something new to master. 

About Phoenix:
Her dance training includes the Alvin Ailey American Dance School, Joffrey Ballet, The Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, and 2 years on scholarship with Bella Lewitzky. Before discovering pole, Phoenix had been been dancing professionally and teaching dance since graduating high school. She traveled the Americas with the touring company of a hit Broadway show for 13 years (The Lion King!). She now enjoys her career as an international pole champion, instructor, competitive coach, and choreographer.
