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.


Do I need a dance or gymnastics background?

No, anyone can learn and enjoy pole dancing and aerial arts.  We will teach you everything you need to know in class to be safe and successful.

Are Men allowed in class? 

Yes, we are a  co-ed studio. We welcome anyone who would like to try pole dance and aerial fitness.  

I have taken a pole fitness classes before, do I still need to take the "Fresh Meat" Intro. to Pole class?  

No, the intro class is only necessary if you have not taken a pole dance class before, but it is a helpful refresher.  To lift the MINDBODY restriction and attend other classes please email melissa@thebrassringchicago.com and your account will be updated.

Are the Aerial classes advanced?

No, the aerial classes are beginner level. Our "F-Liar's Club" Aerial Class is a small group class that is an hour and a half long; you will try Aerial Hoop (Lyra), Aerial Silks, and Fly Gym.  If the demand is high for more aerial classes we will add them to the schedule as needed.
