WHAT IS RUSSIAN EXOTIC FIT STYLE?

 

Russian Exotic Fit is a pole dance style that originated in non other than Russia. Dancers use a static pole, gymnastics strength, dance technique, choreographed transitions and grip switches to merge Pole Elements (tricks) with Plastic Strip (floorwork). In this class you will train various pole grips, dance moves and exotic tricks (around the base of the pole and aerial) and learn a choreographed routine. This class is a high intensity cardio, muscle building workout.

THE 2 STYLES OF RUSSIAN EXOTIC


FLOW
This is the base of Russian Exotic. Rooted in ballet, rhythmic gymnastics and sensual flow. Flow style focuses on movements seamlessly melting from one move to the next, paying close attention to musicality, lines, legwork, strong pointe work, floor to pole tricks and transitions. In flow a dancer’s movements should appear weightless, strong, soft, and effortless. Every move is intentional. Dancers stay connected with each and every movement. Tricks are added as accents, flowing with ease into the choreography of a routine. 

 

Examples: Eva Bembo, Daria Che, Nina Kozub, Bada

 

HARD

As a follow up to Flow; Hard style evolved as hip hop, break dance and power tricks merged into the solid foundations of flow. Though at times incorrectly described as “trick heavy,” the components that define Hard style include: fast paced movements, quick to slow transitions, powerful pops, staccato beats, and an overall edgier more energetic feel. When comparing Hard and Flow, there is no separation between the amount of tricks performed, but rather the way in which these tricks are executed. The music of hard style (dub step / rap / hip hop) allows freedom of style and an intentionally harder hitting attitude behind every movement. As exotic Flow is at the core of hard style; it is important that choreography maintains an essence of exoticism, and does not neglect technique, strong lines nor ease of movement. 

 

Examples: Olga Koda, Alina Kosh, Lauren Lukrich, Isabella, Polina Larovski.
