FAQ - WHat you need to know


What should I wear to class?

For pole fitness classes you will need shorts and a tank top or

t-shirt. You need skin to grip the pole. Also no lotions or oils the day of class, it will make you very slippery and make your pole workout more difficult. You are welcome to dance barefoot or in heels depending on what you prefer. For Aerial classes you want to wear tight clothing such as leggings or yoga pants. For stretching and floor work classes layers work well along with legwarmers and socks. Under the classes tab you will find specific recommendations for certain classes.

What if I have no upper body strength or feel out of shape?

We hear this all the time! That is why you take classes to become strong while having a lot of fun. You will begin to love your body for all the amazing things it can do. 

How does the waiting list work?
