Some frequently asked questions about pole dancing classes

How strenuous is pole dancing?

Initially you will be practising basic moves as you build up your strength even though these moves are basic you are using arm muscles you will not probably have worked in this way before so you will ache in the following days. Over the weeks your muscles will become conditioned, gradually stronger and the techniques start becoming second-nature, and pole dancing gets easier.

Please be gentle and patient with your self, pole dancing is a skill which takes time to master! Regular pole dancing is great for toning all areas of the body. 

Am I too old / wrong shape / unfit?

You do not need to be either extremely fit or flexible to join our classes, just generally healthy. Women of all ages and sizes are welcome! Pole dancing has something for all shapes, styles and fitness levels. Increasingly enjoyed by everyday people of all backgrounds, ages and interests, the only entry restrictions are that you are 16+ and not pregnant.  

I have a sports injury / heart problems / other health concerns

As with beginning any new strenuous exercise regime, it is strongly recommended that you check with your GP first if you have any concerns. 

Can I pole dance if I'm pregnant / recently given birth?

Pole dancing isn't recommended for anyone who is pregnant or recently given birth due to increased possibility of injury at this time.  

What do I wear?

You'll get the best results with shorts and a short-sleeved top, as bare arms and legs are optimal for good pole technique. Jogging bottoms which can be rolled up over your knees are fine if you don't fancy shorts. Either trainers or bare feet are best.

Please avoid wearing the following: chunky jewellery or watches, ankle chains. If you have a belly piercing you may wish to cover it in case of injury.  

Please do not wear any moisturisers on the day you come to class as this makes you and the pole slippery

Do I need to bring anything else?

Bring some water with you as pole dancing uses lots of energy

How big is the class?

Class size is restricted to a maximum of 3 people per pole to ensure you get enough practice time to master the tricks you are working on and to get a good workout.

What happens if I miss a class?

If you book 4 classes you can carry over 1 class and if you book 6 classes you can carry over 2 classes however you must text/phone prior to your class to let us know you cannot make the class. Regrettably refunds cannot be made for individual weeks missed over those stated above or if you fail to inform Stephanie prior to class.
