“I want to tell you a little bit about my personal experience with this work – over 2 years ago I took my first Finding Your Freestyle class with Tracee Kafer and connected with something deeply special. Following pure intuition I signed up for an Intensive just like the one offered next weekend and can honestly say have been transformed in many ways by that experience.

Being a timid person only truly comfortable freestyling in the privacy of my own pole room at home, I knew there was something therapeutic about going into that room, putting on some good beats and dancing it out. I soon discovered (by watching videos of myself) that I had fallen in a cycle of similar patterns, go-to moves, and lifeless extremities (anyone experience zombie hand syndrome?). The #FYFIntensive could not have come at a more perfect time – this focused structured movement work not only built awareness at how every single body part wanted to move but allowed to connect movement to something deeper – thoughts, feelings, situations, past/future/present, even trauma and healing.

Fast forward to now and this work has grown into an even more valuable self-care tool then I could have ever hoped. I could even connect this to something as recent as helping me built enough courage & confidence to not only sign up for my first ever pole competition but winning it with a very personal piece! To sum up – don’t miss this chance to work with Tracee – these three days are impactful and this experience stays with you!”

“This was easily one of the most eye opening and heart opening experiences in my life…”

“I woke up this morning with an insatiable appetite for life and the courage to explore my own joy and purpose in it. Thank you Tracee, her lovely assistant Emily, and all the beautiful soul sisters who bared it all at the FYF Intensive this past weekend. You gave me so much more than you will ever know.”

“It was really an incredible experience and I can’t wait to do it again.”

“I feel so refreshed, invigorated, and yet contemplative. You harnessed some amazing energy and crafted an eye opening experience that was about so much more than freestyle and pole. You led us to a mirror and held our hand as we looked into it.”

“The love, the laughter, the witnessing, the movement. My soul is on fire. Anyone who gets a chance, please please please go out and do this Intensive.”

PLEASE NOTE: Full class descriptions will be given upon registration.

DAY 1 6PM – 9PM


A warm welcome into the method of our madness, our rules of conduct and kindness, setting intentions, expectations, introductions…an initiation into the weekend. Get ready to meet some amazing people!

Freestyle Analysis (*NEW*)

In our kick-off experience we will dive into your current freestyle forecast. Where are you excelling, where are you stuck, what are your habits, your go-tos, your movement preferences and patterns, your strengths and opportunities. We will dissect, discuss, and dive right in to tailor kick-off exercises and get you prepared for the weekend ahead! Get ready to start understanding WAY more about freestyle, and the way you move!!!! After this class, you may start to feel true possibility for major change.

Good Vibe Tribe

You will then be initiated into what can only be described as our beautiful Tribe of Freestylers. More than just self-explored freestyle, this class harnesses the true power and versatility of COLLABORATION.

DAY 2 12 – 4:30PM & 6 – 8PM

Movement Meditation

In this two hour workshop, we will use FYF movement meditation practices to transform the internal experience of freestyle.

All in the Details

Sometimes what makes a beautiful freestyle isn’t the biggest display of strength or flexibility, but the smallest and most distinct moments that are truly unforgettable. In this two hour workshop, we will become obsessed with the details. It is in the details of our movement that our creativity and individuality roams free.


This is a special FYF Intensive exclusive, information on this class will be given at Orientation.

DAY 3 11AM – 3:30PM & 5 – 7PM

Finding Your Floorwork

Disconnecting from your pole allows for new opportunities for grounded movement, and utilizes the floor to invent stylized movement that not only looks interesting, but feels great. This class will not only leave you with more floorwork techniques and choreography, but also the tools and conditioning to help you explore your own development of floorwork.

Interpreting Music

This workshop grows from the roots of musicality, but goes beyond the layers, tempo, and style. This full spectrum work will allow you to essentially “predict and adapt” to a piece of music, regardless of it you have heard it before or not.


This is a special FYF Intensive exclusive, information on this class will be given at Orientation.

ALSO INCLUDES: Final Night (Intensive Completion) Celebration, Reflection, Snacks & Drinks Provided – LET’S PARTY!

This Intensive is open to all levels, however a beg/int level of pole vocabulary may make the experience more accessible.

Clothing and Misc. Requirements: Bring layers for floor-work, pole shorts for aerial work, your favorite footwear (at least a pair of socks, leg warmers, and/or heels), snacks/water, and a camera to record all of your adventures. We will provide a local list of amenities, including driving directions, hotel and dining options.
