INTRO TO POLE

New to Pole Dancing? Then is the class for you! If you have never tried this before or have taken a few classes somewhere else, we require that you take the INTRO TO POLE class at least once. You will most likely want to take it 6 to 10 times before moving up to the next level. You should be able to do all the basic moves comfortably and safely on both sides (left & right) before progressing into higher levels, such as Beginner onwards, where you will be expected to know these basic moves.

Here is a list of things you will learn in our super fun Intro to Pole Class:
• Walking Around the Pole
• Body Rolls/Waves
• Dip, Lift & Fold
• Fireman
• Basic Beginner Spins & Reverse Spin
• Climb Basics
• Conditioning on both sides, left/right & pole strengthening exercises
• Dismounts to Floor
• Fan Kick

 
BEGINNER LEVEL POLE
Must have taken at least 3 INTRO TO POLE classes (6 to 10 is recommended). You will know when you’re ready to move up to other levels, or the instructor will notice & notify you
 
INTERMEDIATE LEVEL POLE

It's time to take what you have learned in our Intro & Beginner classes and bring it to the next level. In this exhilarating pole class, you will not only have a great time, but you will also get an amazing cardio and strength training full body work out!

Learn exciting new spins, challenging floor work, and several types of climbs, all while building your strength to prepare you for inversions. In this class, the instructor will teach to level 1 moves (invert prep) and advance them to your ability if you are ready to learn basic inversions. Teachers are open to student suggestions on moves they would like to work on that day. Basic spins and transitions that are taught will often be put together in a small routine at the end of class.

ADVANCED POLE

This level is for those with 6+ months experience Your instructor will get to know your capabilities by this point and will let you know you’re ready for Advanced! If you feel ready you can always ask the instructor their input.

If you are new to the studio but have many months of prior Pole experience elsewhere, we recommend trying out a Beginner level class first to see where you best fit in. Your first class is $10.00 so this gives you an opportunity to find the level that works best for you.

POLE FAQs
 
What should I wear for pole class?

You should wear what you are comfortable in! If you are comfortable you will have a better class experience :) But we do recommend capri length pants/ leggings/yoga/workout pants OR shorts. Exposure of the calf skin does help with traction & grip on the pole for better function. Fabric will slide right off the pole, giving you no grip.

We do majority of pole classes barefoot, Intro to Pole is ALWAYS done barefoot for safety. Hi-heel shoes are dangerous and only used in very advanced classes when the instructor notifies the class upfront.
Remember this is a fitness class, you will get a ‘workout’ it’s not just to be sexy, but we encourage sexy too!

What if I show up late? Can I still join the class?
You are required to show up at least 10-15 min ahead of class, as we have a strict no late entry policy. Be here early enough to change and be ready to start class on time, or you will not be let in and will not be refunded for the class you missed.
Do I need to sign up in advance or can I just drop in for class?
Classes fill up quickly, so you are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to the class you would like to attend, to ensure your spot in class. We do accept walk in students if there is an open space in class.
Do I need any dance background?
No you don’t. You will learn everything you need to know at our classes. Start in the Intro classes on the schedule, and slowly work your way up when you feel ready to.
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 on how to become stronger in your upper body, core and all over body fitness.
Should I bring my high heels to pole classes?

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 if you would like to use them later on. Heels look great but make it harder initially.

Street shoes are not allowed; you will be allowed to wear only heels that have a proper rubber bottom, as they are safer and appropriate for this workout. Regular high heels are not allowed. We do majority of pole classes barefoot, Intro to Pole is ALWAYS done barefoot for safety. Hi-heel shoes are dangerous and only used in very advanced classes when the instructor notifies the class upfront.

What else should I know?
You should NOT wear ANY lotion on your hands and legs the day of POLE FITNESS class. Sweating will release the lotion back to the surface, and you will be sliding off the pole.
Leave your jewelry at home it could cause damage to our apparatuses and you will be held responsible.
