FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Students can come in for small group classes (8 students or less) or private lessons. We always offer beginning level courses with new series starting once every couple of weeks. Students new to pole can enroll in a Taster, an Intro to Pole course or a Level I. Level I does not require completion of either a Taster or Intro to Pole -- if you're excited about trying it, you can just jump right in!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

All of our instructors have undergone rigorous training in safety and spotting as well as teaching methodology. They are professionals with a passion for pole. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Prices vary depending on level and length of classes. 


How did you get started teaching?

All of our instructors were students before they were teaching... we each fell in love with pole and decided we wanted to share our passion with others and went through the training to be able to do so safely and effectively.


What types of students have you worked with?

We have had all kinds! Women and men, physically fit and disabled, tall, short, young, old... all of them! :)


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the studio you choose has proper safety equipment (crash mats are a must) and that their instructors have been trained and are not just some people who decided to start teaching without any knowledge of anatomy or exercise science. There are a lot of people who think that because they can pole dance, they are qualified to teach and this just isn't the case. Pole is a highly demanding sport that requires a thorough understanding of body mechanics, physics, human anatomy and physiology and alignment to keep students safe.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

what are your goals? What drew you to pole? Do you want to get fit, have fun, learn to dance, all of the above? Is your style more fluid and sexy or dynamic and gymnastic?
