Why Aerial Dance?
Aerial Dance brought pole fitness to the Fox Cities in 2010. Our curriculum was designed by Dr. Paula Brusky to safely build strength while having fun! Our instructors hold multiple nationally-accredited fitness certifications with emphases on pole instruction, study injury prevention techniques and participate weekly in on-going training.

Aerial Studio!

Aerial Dance in Appleton is EXPANDING!  We are building an “Aerial Studio” in the same building, located directly behind our “Pole Studio”.  This addition will allow for more class time options, as the space will have poles and, the most exciting part, new apparatus!!!!!!!  We will begin by offering Aerial Hammock classes starting in fall; eventually we will also be teaching low silks and lyra/hoop classes!  To start with, we will be offering two new classes in fall:

Fitness that is fun!

IMG_1500IMG_1497OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAerial Dance uses a pole to improve functional strength.  By lifting your own body weight into a multitude of pole fitness moves you will increase your core strength, shoulder strength, arm strength and improve posture.  The pole moves are sequenced into cardio dance routines to burn calories and improve overall fitness.  Special attention is given to creating symmetry in the body.  The class is challenging and will improve your strength, flexibility, balance, and self-esteem.  And it is FUN!  We are located in Appleton, come dance with us!

What are the health benfits of Pole Exercise?

  • Sculpting the entire body, especially the arms, stomach and legs
  • Increasing strength of all muscle groups and stabilizing muscles
  • Improving strength and coordination
  • Increasing bone density
  • Burning fat
  • Increasing core activation and strength
  • Gaining confidence and improving self esteem
  • Alleviating stress and improving quality of life
  • Making new friends with the other fabulous women you’ll dance with (ok, this isn’t a health benefit but it is important!)
