Do I need to own a pole to take a pole dancing class?

You do not need your own pole at home, but once you begin pole dancing, you'll probably want to get one. Ask us about tension-mounted, temporary poles from X-Pole. These poles are easily installed with no drilling, screwing or damage to your ceiling!

Do I need to be a dancer, or be athletic to take pole dancing classes?

You do not need any dance or athletic experience to enjoy and benefit from pole fitness!

Is there an age limit?

Students under the age of 18 must have their parent sign a Parental Waiver. Other than unattended minors, all ages are welcome!

How long will it take to master pole dancing?

Like any other athletic discipline, mastering the art of pole dancing requires dedication, patience and lots of training. Most people practice pole dancing for fun and fitness, but if you become interested in competitive or professional pole dancing, we can develop a training and cross-conditioning regiment that will put you on the safe track to mastering those high-flying skills.

What should I wear to each type of class?


Always wear short, form-fitted shorts which expose the top, insides of your thighs. You can wear layers on top. Stilettos are not allowed in Pole Level 1 classes, but are encouraged in all other pole classes. Bare feet are always a good option, and tennis shoes or ballet slippers are also allowed. Socked feet are usually too slippery for Pole Level classes.


Always wear form-fitted leggings when attending aerial classes, in order to protect the skin on the backs of your legs and thighs. You can wear layers on top. Barefoot is best for all aerial classes.


You may wear form-fitted shorts or leggings and layers on top for all fitness classes. Baggy clothing is discouraged and often exposes too much. Tennis shoes or bare feet are best, and knee pads are encouraged for Twerk Fit and Burlesque classes. Covering the legs/knees/thighs is best for Burlesque class as well, and Burlesque class is always stiletto optional. You may wear ballet slippers, socks, foot undies or go barefoot in Ballet Tone class.

Can I arrive early for my scheduled class?

You are encouraged to arrive early and browse our full-scale pole and aerial apparel boutique.

Where can I practice pole dancing after I take a class?
