frequently asked q's
Q •Do you have to be fit / have upper body strength to pole
A •No you can come in just as you are! Pole is great for building strength and getting you fit but you can start with a pole 1 class where you will learn a lot of the basics while still keeping one foot planted on the ground during the spins you learn.
Q •What should I wear to pole class?
A •For pole1 leggings are fine, but make sure to bring bootie shorts, sport bra , tank top (anything like that) to the other classes because you will need to use your skin on the pole for certain tricks/spins. You are also welcome to bring stilettos to any of the pole 1, spins, choreography classes if you like.
Q •Is it ok to wear lotion or oil on my skin for pole class?
A • NOOO!!! Do yourself a favor and no lotion/ oil on the skin before pole class!!! You will be slipping and sliding all over the place !!!
Q •Will I be judged by others for having no dance experience or no rhythm or strength?
A •Absolutely not! We all start from the beginning and understand it's a learning process. This is the most loving, supportive, and uplifting group of people I have ever met in my life! We are all here to love and support each other along this magical journey together. It's beautiful!!! We are a pretty amazing pole family!!!

Q •what classes should I start with if I have never poled before?
