Level up your legwork by mastering the art of the split!
It’s no secret that flexibility is a key ingredient in pole dancing; which is why working on your range of motion is essential if you want your choreography to look and feel seamless!
In this 6-week Mentorship with Pole Dance Instructor and Chiropractor Lorna Shadow (@lorna.shadow), you’ll be guided through a structured program to improve your Middle Split, Front Split, and Straddle (pancake) Split.
Lorna will personally mentor you throughout the program. She’ll provide private feedback, check-ins, and motivate you to excel!
Through weekly interactive Zoom classes, you’ll learn safe and effective practices to improve your splits and hip mobility. You’ll leave the program understanding the importance of hip mobility and leg flexibility in back bending tricks.
If you’re ready to dramatically improve your flexibility skills so you can perform flexy poses and pole tricks effortlessly, this program is for you!
What will I learn?
Having a flat and strong split will help you achieve beautiful moves on and off the pole. In this program, you’ll learn techniques to achieve squarer splits, open up your hip flexors/quads, release your glutes and get those pesky hamstrings to stretch! And if you’re already flat there is plenty to do to unlock your oversplits too.
The middle split is the most elusive and sought-after split of them all, and it’s usually the most challenging to achieve. Throughout the mentorship, you will learn exercises to open up through your hip joints, build strength in your end range and help you get closer to the ground or flat in your Middle Split!
The straddle split (also known as pancake split) is by far the most common split in pole dance. Together we will work on leg and hip range of motion to help you get closer to flat. You will improve your lines and look while in a straddle (pancake) split. This flexibility will translate into more beautiful moves (such as the glorious spatchcock) and inversions.
Unlock your flexibility and range of motion with Lorna!

What other dancers are saying:
This was one of the best things that happened to me in my pole journey!
Thanks to this mentorship program, I was able to understand my body more and improve my heel work. The exercises and combos definitely helped to strengthen my control while dancing. Jazzy’s weekly feedbacks are very on point and effective!
I made more progress than I ever did in physical studio lessons- and I loved the inspiring and supportive community around the world who shared this journey together!
Jazzy is fantastic.
I've been dancing in heels since 2017 but have no dance and sports background so wanted solid basics and technical knowledge. Then the course turned out to be much more than techniques and knowledge. Jazzy helped me to recognize my longstanding problem, brought me to the light of understanding, and gave me a breakthrough. I also appreciate Indi Pole's best organization and support. The course was very well structured and encouraged us to keep going with fun along with other members. Thank you to all. I will definitely sign up for the Mentorship level 2 in the future.
Doing the Edgework Artistry Mentorship was one of the best decisions ever.
Structure, technique, explanations, musicality, emotionality - Tati catered perfectly to all of these aspects. As an edgework beginner, I felt welcome and taken seriously. If you want to experience balancing on the edge, go do this mentorship!
I'm super happy that I joined this Mentorship with Tati. I really felt like I learned a lot in these 4 weeks. Tati's way of teaching is amazing, everything was super well explained and I felt like it was easy to follow.
Even though I wasn't always able to join the live sessions I felt it was easy to catch up with the recordings. Also, I really loved the high-quality materials that we got to keep to ourselves, they are super useful.
All and all I would highly recommend this Mentorship to everyone who is interested in learning edgework.
