Sessions vs Casuals

At Vertika we offer classes in two different streams, sessions and casuals.  Session based classes run for a set period of time, 6-8 weeks for leveled pole sessions and 4 weeks for specialty sessions.  Sessions run on the same day, at the same time the duration of the session.  Each week builds upon the last and there is a set curriculum for each level. Sessions must be joined by week 2 of the session, there is a set fee for each session, class passed cannot be used towards a session.


Casual classes, or drop-in classes are our no commitment option.  If you have too much going on to commit to a session, or you are new to pole and unsure what your style is yet, casuals are the way to go.  Casual classes do not build upon the skills learned in the last week, each class is independent of the others.  Casual classes can be joined at any time.  Class passes and class drop in fees can be used towards casual classes only.
