Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need any dance background?
No you don’t. You will learn everything you need to know at our classes. Start in any of our "all levels" classes on the schedule and slowly work your way up when you and your instructor feel you are ready.
I have no upper body strength...will that be a problem?
It is not a problem. Our job is to get you stronger quickly. We will teach you everything you need to know to become stronger and develop all over body fitness.
What should I wear?
For pole classes you should wear short shorts no longer than mid-thigh and a tank top. Sports Bras are recommended for protection and support. We need to have a lot of skin exposed to make it easier to stick to the pole. Fabric will slide right off the pole giving you no grip and leaving you frustrated.
For aerial classes, leggings are strongly suggested.
No shoes are needed but are optional for pole classes level 1 and up.
Should I bring my high heels?
Heels are not required, especially for those of you with no pole dance experience. You will work your way up to adding the weight of the heels to your workout. Heels look great but make it harder initially. You will be allowed to wear only “stripper “ heels, as they are safer and appropriate for this workout. Regular high heels are not allowed.
Am I too large to pole dance?
Pole Dance is for people of all shapes and sizes. Over time you will see more muscular definition, toning, and strength, all combined into an extremely fun full body workout.
Is there a changing room in the studio? Showers?
There is a changing area (restroom) by the studio and cubbies for your personal belongings. There are NO showers on premises.
What if I show up late? Can I still join the class?
You are required to show up 5 to 10 minutes ahead of class. For safety purposes we will not be able to let you in after the warm-up and cannot be credited for the class. Be here early enough to change and be ready to start class on time.
What else should I know?
You should NOT wear ANY lotion on your hands, body, and legs the day of class. Sweating will release the lotion back to the surface and you will be sliding off the pole. Please refrain from applying fragrance as many are sensitive. Rings, watches, and bracelets are also not permitted on the poles. We are not responsible for lost items.
