The Scholarship Program at The Choreography House is an online, six-month Pole Dance Training Program designed to develop Pole Dancers, Athletes, Instructors and Performers. This dynamic curriculum was created by Kelly Yvonne (Studio Director) and was inspired by her work training performers for live stage, music videos, competitions and showcases. Active Dancers pay an affordable monthly tuition and select from three Membership options: Independent Study, Hybrid Training and Full Immersion.
Dancers must have consistent access to a pole, an internet connection and any other personal workout equipment, such as a mat, yoga blocks, pole grip, etc. Online Attendance during LIVE Intensives, Classes and Workshops is optional, but recommended. A link to the replay of each Class Lesson will be available to Active Scholarship Members (Slides and Video only). This program is not offered in-person at this time.
Dancers should be at an Intermediate Pole Dance Level or above prior to enrolling in the Scholarship Program. This program is not recommended for Dancers New to Pole and/or Beginners. A list of pre-requisite Pole Skills are listed below:
All Dancers begin The Scholarship Program with an Introduction to Pole Choreography. This curriculum includes Pole Technique, Combinations and Sequences, with an emphasis on the Fundamentals of Choreography. All Dancers receive a Monthly Creative Assignment, complete Homework Exercises and attend an online Choreography Intensive to fully integrate the content of the Course. Graduates have six months from the Program completion date to submit a Final Thesis Performance and receive a Level One Pole Choreography Certification.
