2.1. I am a beginner, where do I start?
Pole Basic is our beginner level pole class, no experience required! Alternatively, check out our open level group classes; Active Flexibility, Floorwork, Pole Silk and Acro Chair! You may consider Private Classes if you prefer a more private setting.
2.2. I am neither fit nor flexible, can I join classes?
Absolutely! Our classes are a great way to begin your journey in improving your strength, flexibility, coordination and overall fitness.
2.3. How do I sign up for classes?
Click Register > Bookings on our website’s menu. Create an account on our booking platform, check schedule for availability, purchase packages and book into week 1 of your preferred class slot! Booking into week 1 will secure your place in the same class slot each week.
For a detailed tutorial on how to use our booking platform, check out our Instagram Highlights “Register How?” @poledancemovement. See our Booking Policy below for important things to consider.
2.4. When can I sign up for classes/When does the next term start?
Click here for a 2023 overview of our term structure. We open registrations one week before the start of each term; follow us on Instagram to keep up to date with when registrations open! Be sure to sign up early as slots get taken quickly (:
2.5. What should I wear/bring/know for my first pole class?
Wear short shorts and a sports bra/singlet, as you will require exposed skin to grip the pole. Do not use any skin lotions or moisturizers as this will make the poles slippery and hard to grip.
Bring along a personal sweat towel and water bottle. We provide yoga mats for warm up but you may bring your own if you prefer.
After classes are done, look for the sanitizing spray bottles and towels with which to wipe down your poles and/or crash mats and other equipment you may have used during class.
There are two kinds of sprays and towel combos:
Dark spray bottles (alcohol) and Dark cloths for poles and chairs, Light spray bottles (soaps and essential oils) and light cloths for mats, bands, yoga blocks.
2.6. Do I need pole shoes?
Not yet! We prefer for you to strengthen your foundations and ankles first in Pole Basic, but later on if you get bitten by the pole bug, we do take pole and shoe orders every second week of term.
2.7. When can I move up a level?
After pole basic, the next level in our syllabus is Pole 1! Your instructor will let you know individually by the end of the term when you are ready and safe to proceed to the next level. You may also check with your instructor for additional feedback on how to best progress.
2.8. What is Practice Time?
Practice Time slots are unsupervised sessions where you can practice what you have learnt in class to enhance your learning experience! Selected Term and Mini Term Packages do come with complimentary Practice Time Slots, a gift from us to you. 💝
2.9. The class I want to join is full. What happens if I join the Waitlist?
Joining the waitlist on our booking platform will require 1 credit from a package purchase. If a slot opens up, we will automatically book you in & notify you through email.
If a slot does not open up, your credit will be refunded back to your account. Please reach out to us if you do not get a secured slot in class by the start of term.
2.10. Do you offer Online Classes?
We currently do not have any online lessons.
2.11. Do you offer trial classes?
We do run trial sessions, but on an ad hoc basis. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates, though we usually recommend joining a full term of Pole Basic to get a true taste of the experience.
2.12. Do you have Drop In classes?
Sorry, we don’t offer drop-ins at the moment as our classes run on a 3-week and 6-week term basis, depending on the class you’re interested in. Alternatively you could consider taking a Private Lesson.
2.13. Are guys/gays/trans/hijabis allowed?
Anyone with a passion to learn and move with us is welcome at our studio! If you'd like more privacy, we definitely recommend our Private Lessons.
