In September of 2014, Liquid Motion® launched its first ever 75-minute movement conditioning class at one of the biggest aerial arts studios in North America. Shortly thereafter, the class was sold out weeks in advance, and now successfully runs four times a week. The Liquid Motion® Class is unique from the Signature Workshops, as it is designed to run as a weekly class. This gives you, the licensee, endless programing possibilities. The Liquid Motion® Class is an open level class that utilizes elements of fitness conditioning, sensual movement, and dance theory, to provide the student with a total mind and body movement experience. In this 75-minute class, students will learn the Liquid Motion® Fundamentals to build a foundation for floor work & wall work. The class includes body conditioning, lateral movement drills, intricate floor flows, exploration of sensual movement, and an understanding of total body awareness. Or as we refer to it, Liquid Motion®!
(Formerly Liquid Motion® One) is an hour and 45 minute open level workshop that utilizes sensual movement, basic dance theory and self-exploration to create total body awareness. In this workshop, you will learn 5 signature Liquid Motion flows utilizing the floor and wall. You will explore the 5 key techniques of Liquid Motion and the fundamentals of our methodology to help you build a foundation for seamless movement from the ground up. Since we will only be using the floor and wall in this class, please bring knee pads, leg warmers, long pants and a long sleeve shirt for a better movement experience.

Would you rather listen to a song on a clean, clear mp3 or a scratched record? You will hear the song on both platforms, but one will provide a more enjoyable experience. Watching or executing movement is no different. The ability to create clear movement pathways with minimal unnecessary interruption is the art of “Sequential Connection.” In this workshop,students will be taught how to remove titles of moves and simply look at movement as a progression of shapes. Each move/progression will share a common connection shape and students will be taught how to recognize them to create a smooth, fluid movement pathway. This technique is what enables you to move like Liquid and applies to all movement. Jeni and the Liquid Motion team will introduce you to Sequential Connection on the floor because they do it from the ground up. Once you understand it, the sky's the limit!
“FACE DOWN/ASS UP” is Liquid Motion on the pole with the added element of grounded inversions. Jeni Janover tested this workshop at Body & Pole to a sold out crowd, and they were blown away! Students will learn complex grounded sequences that include pirouettes, one arm spins, static rotation, low flow inversions (meaning your hips will be over your head), and Liquid Motion advanced floor work ideas around the base of the pole - all without getting more than an arm’s reach from the ground. Jeni will make you spin up the pole, twirl in the air, and rotate back down to the floor in a way you have never known before.
*Students must be able to invert comfortably without a spot and be proficient in both inside and outside leg hooks.

In Liquid 1, we encourage all students who want to explore their bodies to attend, no matter what your age, shape, or size. No pole experience is necessary, as there will be no use of poles in Liquid 1. Liquid 2 is for the more experienced pole dancer, as it involves more work on the pole. A basic understanding of pole movement is required for this workshop. It is recommended for all students to take the Liquid 1 workshop before advancing to the Liquid 2 workshop.
Comfort and safety come first! Wear any workout clothes that you feel good in. Because you will be moving around on the floor, we recommend that students wear pants over their pole shorts and a long sleeve shirt that can be removed. You will not need any footwear for this class, but ankle socks are recommended.
Much of the class is spent on the floor, so knee pads are required. Lightweight knee pads can be purchased in our online store, or at any local sporting goods store. If you are taking Liquid 2, please do not wear any oils, lotions, or jewelry on the day of your class. Slipping from the pole becomes much more likely with oily skin, so make sure to wash your hands before coming to class. Also each student should have a yoga mat and water bottle (not for drinking) for any Liquid Motion® workshop. Students can expect to receive an email prior to their Liquid workshop, which will outline all requirements for their individual Liquid experience.
In order to keep classes and workshops running smoothly, and on time, late arrivals will not be allowed in to participate. If the student has reserved a spot in the class or workshop, there will be no refunds due to late arrival. Liquid Motion® starts teaching movement theory the minute the doors close, and you would be missing very important information if you were late. Please show respect for the studio, the instructor, and your fellow students, by arriving early and prepared for your class or workshop. Thank you for understanding!
