THE POL|NESĀ®

THE POL|NES® began in 2012, training in various schools and venues in Athens, having as an axis the acrobatic movement on pole combined with contemporary and physical dance techniques. Through our need to evolve, we eventually discovered and used other forms of aerial arts, such as aerial silks, trapeze, hoop, and corde lisse. 

In 2013 we created our own space to house our needs for research, learning and developing expression.

We provide lessons on circus arts (pole, aerial silks, trapeze, hoop, corde lisse) and combine them with contemporary dance (using various mobility motifs borrowed from other systems too), empowering them with yoga and pilates, analyzing and clearing our movement through martial arts, to eventually become specific and accurate through rhythm. Technique, strength, theory and flow are key features on our courses. 
 
We focus on the lack of intensity, using breathing and momentum to facilitate movement instead of using pure muscle power. Here we learn to properly manage this energy and the student is able to choose where to channel it. The physical channels that we discover, lead us to pure aerial and dancing movement.

So we provide wide range of techniques, exercises and general tools that a dancer, acrobat or anyone involved with movement would need in order to evolve and cultivate. We provide knowledge in order to learn and utilize them in any chosen way. 
 
We host performances, seminars and events that we believe are useful and capable of building personality, body and spirit which are essential for everyone.
