Q&A

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

You should use shorts and a tight top, and a sports bra for suport and protection. We need to expose a bit of skin to be able to get a strong hold on the pole. Too much clothes will make it harder to grip the pole.
***Under garments are not appropriate attire and you will not be allowed to participate if wearing only under garments.

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

You are required to show up at least 10-15 min ahead of class, as we have a strict no late entry policy. Be here early enough to change and be ready to start class on time, or you will not be let in and will not be refunded for the class you missed.

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

Classes fill up quickly at Poleart Fitness, 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 ANY 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. You are encouraged to bring heels to our signature class: POLE ATTITUDE or POLE SENSUAL

IS THERE A CHANGING ROOM IN THE STUDIO? SHOWERS?

We have no changing area at the studio. We do not have lockers for your personal belongings. There are NO showers on premises.
