FAQs

Who are pole dancing classes for?

Everyone! Absolutely no dancing experiences required to join in - you will be taught all you need to know.

Do I have to be physically fit?

Not at all! We cater for all shapes and sizes - from fitness fanatic to couch potato. Besides, once you start taking classes, it won’t be long before you are fitter, stronger and more confident about your body.

Will there be men in any of the classes?

No - it’s women only.

What kind of moves will I learn?

All classes focus on increasing your fitness, stamina, strength and your flexibility. Pole dancing is as much about dazzling tricks as it is exercise, and so as well as floor work and stretch conditioning, you can expect to twirl, spin hold and even go upside-down. All this will be combined into a fun and aerobic routine that will stimulate every muscle in your body.

Will I be able to perform every move?

Eventually, once your strength has built up sufficiently, there is nothing to stop you from learning all there is to know.

What do I wear to class?

You’ll need bare legs and arms in order to grip the pole, so shorts and a vest top are recommended. However, gym trousers and a tee shirt are fine too - just ensure that you can move freely.

For footwear, either trainers or bare feet will do.

It’s important to note that any body lotions, body creams or oil should be avoided - these can make the poles greasy, a dangerous yourself or others.

Is pole dancing safe?

Pole dancing is like any other sport in that you may suffer bumps and bruises - especially at the beginning. Over time, however, as you learn how to position yourself correctly and your strength builds, the bruising will stop.

Do I need to take any equipment to lessons?

You may want to bring a bottle of water and a small towel. As for music, this will be provided, but do feel free to bring your own CDs/ipods along.

What happens if I miss a class?

Everyone works at their own pace, you will not fall behind if you miss a class or two. If you have paid for a block of 6 classes, these are valid for 3 months from the purchase date.
