We try and test our course structures, always developing the content to remain at the top of our profession.

A. Pole dancing attracts such a diverse mix of women that there is no one stereotype in our classes. Regardless of age, size, shape and fitness level this is the place for you to progress at your own pace. You will probably find all your energy is focused on mastering the moves rather than worrying about how everybody else looks.
Q. What should I wear?
A. Shorts which are vital for pole dancing as the more skin contact with the pole the better, along with a vest top or t shirt. Most beginners learn barefoot, you can wear ballet/jazz shoes if preferred or heels. Please refrain from wearing any jewelry to the classes including rings, watches, large earrings and necklaces. If you have a naval piercing you will need to cover it with a long vest top/plaster. In the winter please bring tracksuit bottoms, leggings, and or leg warmers for the warm-up allowing your muscles get lovely and warm ready for the pole.
All students can bring heels to class, however please ensure they have a strap around the ankle and that you can confidently pole dance in them.
