Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! Everyone has to start somewhere. We have classes tailored specifically for beginners and our teachers are highly trained and experienced in making sure you will feel safe starting out your new journey in Pole with us.

Ideally you need to have skin contact on pole so less is better and anything like hot pants, Thong, sports shorts (tight), sports bra is ideal and tight leggings can also work for choreo classes. There are also some awesome Pole wear lines available on the market. However nothing loose or baggy!

Everyone is different. Usually if you have a dance, ballet or gymnastics background you might move up the levels quicker. Some take months and some take years but it’s all about the journey and how dedicated and committed you are to the sport. Pole is not an easy discipline but one things for sure, you will learn a lot about yourself and find strength and confidence you never thought you had.
