WHAT DO I WEAR?

Please wear something comfortable to class, we prefer if you wear shorts as this allows for better grip on the poles when sitting, climbing etc. If you are not comfortable wearing shorts, then you may wear gym pants that are easy to roll up for moves that require extra skin. A tight fitting top is always best, but once again wear what you are comfortable with.

WHAT NOT TO WEAR!

Please do not apply lotion on days that you pole dance, as this makes the pole slippery and will not allow you or anyone else who uses that pole to achieve any moves on the day. If you would like to wear shoes, please wear ballet shoes, and no trainers as these restrict your movement in class.

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING ELSE?

Please bring with a bottle of water and a sweat towel as well as any grip aides that you wish to use (these can be purchased from the studio should you need them).

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INTRO CLASS AND A BEGINNER CLASS?

An intro class is for first times, we recommend attending an intro class so that you are not overwhelmed by other students who may have attended pole for a number of months and can achieve more advanced moves, you will get there one day too. To start it is advised that you are with other newbies and this was you will get the undivided attention that you need at first.

WILL POLE DANCING HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT?

ABSOLUTELY! pole dancing is a great way to tone up and build muscle, it is a great upper body and core workout and combined with our fitness classes are sure to have you in tip top shape.

HOW BIG IS THE CLASS?

We allow a maximum of 2 people per pole to ensure that you get the maximum attention from your instructor and more advanced pole buddies.

ARE MEN ALLOWED?

The regular scheduled classes are ladies only, however men are more than welcome if they’re part of a one-off group booking, or they book a private lesson with an instructor or if there were sufficient numbers (6 minimum) to run a class just for the guys.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A CLASS?

You are welcome to catch up missed classes by attending another class as a make-up session within the same month.
