FAQs

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?

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 Body & Pole, 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.

You are encouraged to bring heels to our signature class: POLE DIVAS

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.

IS THERE A CHANGING ROOM IN THE STUDIO? SHOWERS?

There is a changing area at the studio. We have lockers for your personal belongings, please bring your own lock (locks are availbale for purchase at the front desk). There are NO showers on premises.

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.
