Transcending Transitions

with Michelle Mynx

Learn to float, twirl, and dance through your sequences in this 75-min workshop with pole star, Michelle Mynx! This class is great for everyone from those just getting comfortable doing inverted tricks to the more advanced who are looking for creative ways to flow and twirl through your existing combos and beyond.

Looking for more focus on static flow transitions? Feeling great about the repertoire of moves you are building but not so great about getting from one to another?

Or are you just getting comfortable with inversions but stuck when it comes to flowing them together? You will learn to find the formula to string your
personal favorite tricks and combos together with continued movement
and grace and with the least amount of hand traffic and adjusting
possible.
