What should I wear?
For our non-pole classes and beginner pole classes, please wear comfortable workout clothes. Examples include yoga pants, shorts, and tank tops. For our intermediate pole classes, please wear shorts and a sports bra (you need your skin to have contact with the pole). If you chose to wear high heels in class (instructors will often be wearing them), please make sure they are dance shoes, not street shoes. We have dance shoes to purchase in our lobby. Note: For safety reasons, please do not wear lotion prior to pole class. This will make the pole very slippery and dangerous for you and the next person. We will not allow students wearing lotion to use the poles. Also, please remove all jewelry before class.
How do I sign up for class?
Please sign up through MindBodyOnline located on the schedule tab or click here. We do not encourage clients to come to class without registering first.
Is there an age limit?
Due to the sensual nature of pole dancing, we are an 18+ studio.
Do I need prior experience?
Absolutely not! We offer a variety of foundational classes that will help you learn the key elements of pole dancing. Our progressive format will help you advance in your practice as quickly as possible!
What can I expect on my first day?
No need to worry about being shy. Here at Pole Play, we welcome everyone from the start. You will meet the instructor and start class with a warm up and stretch. From there, you will learn some basic pole techniques and may even learn a mini routine! To avoid injury, there will always be a cool down after class.
How long are the classes?
Classes are 1 hour long.
What if I’m shy?
We understand that trying something new can be a little scary at first. However, we welcome all new students with open arms. Our instructors are kind and inclusive and understand beginner shyness. We are confident that after your first class, you will have fun, make new friends, and forget why you were nervous in the first place!
This is so much fun! How often should I train to get really good and do all of the cool tricks?
We recommend training at least 3 times a week to be the best pole dancer you can be. We offer a monthly unlimited package which will allow you to get the most classes for the best price.
I want to take one of your Fly Gym classes. How is the equipment different from suspended resistance training straps?
Fly Gym is a series of soft, stretchy, reinforced fabric slings that can be used for aerial yoga, fitness, rehab, aerial, pole dance and more. The web straps with our uniquely designed wrist straps can be used for functional boot camp-type training. You can train hard with both of them, and you can take a nap in Fly Gym when you’re done.
How is this different from the aerial silks?
Fly Gym is more made with a cotton blend fabric making it stretchy, comfortable and versatile with thirteen pieces versus one. Fly Gym is easier to use while getting the same results. And with aerial silks, you can’t adjust the height of your sling while off the ground as you can with Fly Gym. Fly Gym has a wonderful aerial conditioning program that builds those much-needed muscles and flexibility when using aerial silks.
What is your class cancellation policy?
You may cancel without being charged up to 12 hours before your scheduled class by logging into your MindBodyOnline account. We regret we cannot accept cancel requests over the phone or via e-mail.
If you are enrolled in a series class, you may do 1 missed class make-up in another class as space is available. Classes purchased may not be transferred. No refunds for pre-paid classes or sessions.
Classes have a minimum student registration of 3 to run class. If you register online and a class does not reach the minimum allowance, you will be notified via email and will not be charged.
