FAQ's

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

FOR POLE

You should wear short shorts and a tank top. Sports Bras are recommended for protection and support. We need to have a lot of skin exposed (back of knees exposed as early as Intro to Pole), as you need to stick to the pole. Fabric will slide right off the pole, giving you no grip.Under garments are not appropriate attire and you will not be allowed to participate if wearing only under garments.

FOR FABRIC & HOOP

We encourage students to wear clothing that covers the backs of their knees and torso for all aerial classes, other than pole. This will help avoiding burns caused by friction with the fabric or hoop.

FOR FLEXIBILITY

Yoga appropriate attire.


WHAT IF I SHOW UP LATE? CAN I STILL JOIN THE CLASS?

It is recommended to show up at least 10-15 min ahead of class, however you may still attend the class if you arrive late.


DO I NEED TO SIGN UP IN ADVANCE OR CAN I JUST DROP IN FOR CLASS?

Classes fill up quickly at The Pole Experience, 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 A DANCE BACKGROUND?

No you don’t. You will learn everything you need to know at our classes. Start in the beginner 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.


ARE AERIAL CLASSES OPEN FOR ANY LEVEL?

Some classes on the schedule are open level, other classes are clearly marked as BEGINNER or INTERMEDIATE. If it doesn’t say a level, anyone can take that class.


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. You will not be allowed to wear it in any of the aerial classes, pole, silks or hoop.
