Do you allow pregnant women to attend pole classes?

Pregnant women are not allowed to participate in pole dancing in our studio.

What should I wear?

For all pole classes, show a little skin! Comfortable athletic attire, with shorts that expose two or three inches above the knee. This little bit of exposed skin is crucial to help you climb the pole. We sell in our studio the world’s leading pole wear brand. High heels are always optional; we find that many pole dancers prefer to learn barefoot. Don’t apply any lotion on the day of your class, as it will make the pole very slippery! You will be asked to remove rings and bracelets before class.

Do you allow walk-ins or is it by reservation only?

We do allow walk-ins, as long as there is space in the class when you arrive. If you don’t want to take the chance of the class being full, make a reservation through our website. Please note that if no one has previously signed up for the class, it may have been cancelled.

I’ve never taken a pole dance class before. Which class should I take first?

Introduction to Pole is the perfect class for someone with no previous pole dance experience. In that class we work from the ground up, with the first move being how to get comfortable walking around the pole. You got this!

I have no upper body strength and no dance experience, can I take pole classes?

Yes, of course! Upper body strength is not a pre-requisite to start because pole dancing strengthens and conditions your entire body as you learns. You’ll find that after a few classes, you’re moving with confidence and style. As with many forms of dance, your style is completely unique, so there is no right or wrong way to move to the music.

What is the difference between pole dancing and Pole Fitness?

Pole dance doesn’t mean no tricks. It means having to perform full tricks/spins and then transitions in between each trick/spin without stopping thus creating higher intensity workouts, more of an overall body workout and higher potential of cardio and toning benefits than just the tricks on their own. This applies whether you like ballet inspired/sexy/contemporary/hip hop dancer/belly dancer or acro style pole. Dance and tricks together means extra workout benefits.

Pole fitness / sport it focuses on physical strength, technique difficulty and drills. Therefore, choreographies focus mainly on acrobatics and dancing moves are limited.
