‘Glow’ is The Pole Room’s inaugural student showcase that will give YOU the chance to perform on stage without the pressure of a competition.
Each group performance at ‘Glow’ will be the outcome of 8 weeks of intensive training at the studio under the guidance of their instructor. Participants will learn 1 routine (up to 5 minutes), with 4-9 other students of a similar level. At the end of the 8 weeks, participants will perform their routine at the Glow Showcase held at the Karralyka theatre in Ringwood on March 27th, 2020.
The routine learnt will be the creative masterpiece of the instructor leading them and are developed with the instructors own signature style. Whilst our instructors are creating the overall concept and flow of the routine, they will also take into account your own pole ability. The overall aim will be to showcase your individual strengths within the routine, while making sure you feel confident when performing on stage.
Currently there are no detailed descriptions of each ‘Stage Ready Performance Course’, however the name will give an indication of the style and/or theme. If you are seeking clarification be sure to email [email protected]
Ultimately ‘Glow’ has been created by The Pole Room to challenge YOU to take your skills and abilities on stage and perform in a fun and supportive environment.
All videos and photography will be available to participants and is included in the total cost of the course.
