Exotic Flow

Exotic Flow is all about fluidity and grace. Continuous movements that never stop. Pole sequences are combined with floorwork (strip plastic) to create a harmonious, flowing performance. The dancers in this style aim to create beautiful lines, seamless transitions, and aesthetically pleasing movements that require strength but look effortless. 

Exotic Hard 

Exotic Hard is the most energetic of exotic pole dancing styles. It is all about fast movements, tricks, jumps, and unexpected transitions. The music in this style is typically fast and includes genres such as dubstep and hip-hop. It’s wild, it’s dynamic, and requires a lot of stamina & strength.  It can be sexy, harsh, or playful, but always powerful.

The Australian Style or Pole Classic

Many consider the Australian Pole Classic (aka Classique) style as the original form of pole dance outside strip clubs. This style originated in Australia and is characterized by its sexiness and explicitness. Performances in this style contain spectacular tricks, splits, and beautiful, challenging moves. The Australian style is the foundation of all other styles of pole dance and continues to influence the evolution of the art form.

Exotic Old School (aka Exotic Old Style)

Exotic Old School is the most emotionally charged style of pole dance. This style is directly influenced by the strip club world and is characterized by its sensuality and femininity. While nudity is not a requirement, Old School performances often involve playing with and transforming the performer’s outfit, which is usually sexy and revealing.
