Summer school | Chinese Pole

3 & 4 July | by Carina Klingsell

Two days intensive summer school, to introduce you to Chinese pole!

In this two-day summer school, you will get an introduction to the discipline Chinese pole. Apart from learningSummerschool Pole_Carina positions and skills, in this summer school we will focus on transitions between tricks and in finding a flow on the pole. In Carina’s own practice, she combines dance and floor acrobatics with the Chinese pole and in the bridge between the floor and the pole there are many possibilities for new tricks. This is something that we together will explore in the workshop. By adding our prior knowledge and vocabulary to the Chinese pole, we hope for the participants to get a jump start in how to train and explore the discipline of Chinese pole in a fun way.

Because we have just two Chinese poles in the studio, the amount of participants is limited.

Level: some prior physical experience such as aerial, acrobatics or pole dance.

Teacher: Carina Klingsell

Carina Klingsell:
‘’I am Carina, a circus artist living in Rotterdam originally from Sweden. I grew up in Stockholm practicing circus alongside dance and rhythmic gymnastics. I found the Chinese pole 8 years ago and found that it gave me both a trill and a sense of control. I began this journey at Cirkus Cirkörs gymnasium in Sweden and later on went to Codarts Circus Arts where I attained a Bachelor in 2019. Since graduating I have been working with various companies in the Netherlands. Such as Theater Babel, Tall Tales Company & Boost Producties.
Apart from Chinese pole, I practice floor acrobatic and I find the mix of the two to specifically interesting when researching new movement material.’’
