How long will it take for me to move from Level 1 to the next level?

Progressing from Level 1 is determined by many factors. How often you attend class, how strong is your core and upper body strength, are you completing beautifully executed spins, etc.? There is no exact answer, feel free to speak with your instructor and she will let you know when you are ready to progress.

I’m a classically trained dancer, can I take an Advanced/Challenging Class?

We wouldn’t suggest it….Here’s why. Pole dancing is a different dance form than Ballet or Jazz. Yes, we add in a couple of Rel-eves and Stag’s in our combinations but Pole Dance is technique separate unto itself. We use different movement for our poses especially Advanced Classes, that require extreme core and upper body strength and repetition to perfect and make beautiful. Advanced Classes move quickly as the students are familiar with the Climbs, Inverts, Spins, and Poses.

How long are the classes?

All classes are one hour unless noted differently in the class description.

How do I make a reservation for a class?

What if I miss a class and I have a monthly package or class package?

There is a 6 hour cancellation period. If you fail to cancel prior to 6 hours, you will be charged a $20 fee.  Are you serious?  Yes, we are very serious.  If you don’t cancel your class, this may prevent your fellow students from taking your place.

What do I wear or bring to class?

Please DO NOT wear any body lotions or oils to class as it makes the pole slippery and dangerous. Ladies dress comfortably. Tank tops, shorts or yoga capri’s. Expose your ankles/heels.  For intermediate/advanced classes you will need sports shorts or hot shorts.  Bare legs are necessary to grip the pole for climbing and inversions.

Cloth style knee pads (optional). These protect your knees during floor work and can be purchased at any sporting goods store for around $10.

If you own a yoga mat, please bring it to class.  Please leave all hand a wrist jewelry at home!  Why? You can lose diamonds and damage your jewelry and the poles.

What kind shoes should I wear?

For pole dance classes pole dance stilettos are recommended to get the best movement around the pole.  We sell Pole Dance Stilettos that start at $40.  Please do not bring your stilettos from home unless they have a platform and a rubber sole.  If you don’t have or prefer to dance without stilettos, you may dance with your bare feet or half soles.
