“This was easily one of the most eye opening and heart opening experiences in my life…”
The FYF Intensive, produced and facilitated by FYF Creator Tracee Kafer, with the assistance of FYF Ambassador Jane Fish, is a 15 hour intimate training designed to give you the tools and depth of experience to initiate and grow your pole freestyle practice. Let the FYF method inspire your body and mind, fuel your spirit, and open your heart. This long-form intimate experience will leave **lasting** changes in your movement, your classroom, your performance, and your life.
Join us and learn and expand your practice and application of FREESTYLE in this immersive three day event. Accelerate your experience and expression of improvisational pole dance, connect deeply with like-minded movers, and create new awareness, creativity, and direction for your movement. Let us help you (re)move those blocks, break patterns, and feel more freedom!
The FYF Intensive is an ever-evolving immersive event, and has been running both domestically and intentionally for three years.
Sign up is available now and space is limited. This Intensive is open to all levels, however a beg/int level of pole vocabulary may make the experience more accessible.
You can pay full enrollment to register, or select a payment plan to make 3 installments (deposit + 2 additional payments).

Marlo Fisken, owner of Flow Movement:
“I attended my first pole intensive this weekend! Tracee Kafer and Emily Rose brought the FYF 2.0 to Boulder. I was actually home to participate, and it was pure awesomeness.
This was the best possible way to step back into the movement zone after many weeks of travel, illness, and injury. I went in carrying all sorts of grumpiness from my lack of movement and came out with new friends and a much better mood.
I’ve recommended FYF events before I ever went to one, and I will most certainly continue to do so. Thank you ladies for investing so deeply in your carefully crafted content and to everyone there for being fun, supportive, and OPEN.”
Melanie Piek, owner of Vertical Fusion:
“So much gratitude to Tracee and Emily of @findingyourfreestyle for the amazing freestyle intensive this past weekend. Your workshop is like no other – it reaches beyond the physical aspect of movement! You helped us shift perspectives, pursue authenticity, and dance from the soul. One million heartfelt thanks!”
Michelle, Owner of Rising Goddess Fitness, had to say:
“I spent this weekend not only investing in myself but also being lucky enough to witness transformation as these other amazing women invested in themselves. This experience was about so much more than pole dance and because of it, I am forever changed – as a person and as a dancer. Thank you to Tracee and Emily for facilitating an experience that made all of us feel safe and open to being our most vulnerable selves. Through that vulnerability, we experienced incredible growth. All of us will always be connected through this shared journey. I am eternally grateful to each of you for your contributions and for the ways you inspired me to dig deep. I can’t wait to continue Finding My Freestyle.”
Amanda Grant, a two-time participant in our Boulder Intensive says…
“This weekend changed muh liiiife!!! The Finding Your Freestyle Intensive was everything I needed it to be and more. I actually danced! I got lost in the music and just followed the ride my body took me on and it was invigorating!!! Can’t wait to do more!”
“I woke up this morning with an insatiable appetite for life and the courage to explore my own joy and purpose in it. 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.”

EXAMPLE DAY 1 FRIDAY
APROX. 6PM – 9:30PM
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!
Good Vibe Tribe
You will then be initiated into what can only be described as our beautiful Good Vibe Tribe of Freestylers. More than just self-explored freestyle, this class harnesses the true power and versatility of exploring, observing, and collaborating with a group.
EXAMPLE DAY 2 SATURDAY
APPROX. 12:30 – 3:30PM & 6 – 9PM
Movement Your Meditation
We use FYF movement meditation practices to transform the internal experience of freestyle, and then explore how that can be incorporated and combined with external environmental awareness.
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. It is in the details of our movement that our creativity and individuality roams free.
This is a special FYF Intensive exclusive.
EXAMPLE DAY 3 SUNDAY
APPROX. 1:00 – 4:00PM & 6 – 9PM
Finding Your Floorwork
Disconnecting from your pole allows for new opportunities for grounded movement, and utilizes the floor to invent stylized movement that looks interesting, and feels great. This class will not only leave you with a greater sense of freedom on the floor, but also the tools and conditioning to help you explore your own refinement and style of floorwork.
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.
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.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds. You may transfer your spot to someone else if you cannot attend.
