WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST POLE DANCING CLASS?
It's super fun, but it's not easy. Patience is key and is very important when learning anything. Pole dancing is no exception. It's also a fabulous workout and you may feel sore just like after any other exercise routine.
We want you to enjoy your class, learn something new, and meet new friends.
THIS IS MY FIRST TIME. WHAT CLASS SHOULD I TAKE AS A BEGINNER?
polePOWER is a great class to start with as it helps you with developing more upper body and core strength. This class was tailored as a pole fitness class. If you are looking for dance instruction, then poleSTART is another option for you. This is a great class to learn basic moves on the pole. If you still have questions, call/text 210-454-8558.

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT? HOW ABOUT A WEIGHT LIMIT?
We allow children under 14 years old to enroll on a probationary basis. If your child cannot pay attention during class, then we advise that they not attend as this will cause a disturbance to the entire class. Students under 18 years of age must submit a parental/legal guardian consent form, waiver and release of liability form, and photography/video release form (these forms can be found under FORMS). You must create a Mindbody account for your minor for class reservation purposes. Must show proof of ID (government issued ID) of parent/legal guardian.
Students under 14 years of age are never to be left as we do not offer supervision services. Parent/legal guardian must be enrolled in the class with the underage student.
There is a 400 lb. weight limit per pole.
IS IT JUST FOR WOMEN?
Absolutely NOT. All our classes are open to both females and males. We welcome everyone who wants to join us. This is a judgement-free zone. With that being said, we have the right to refuse service to anyone who acts disrespectful towards others in class and our team at North Pole Dance Studio.
DO I NEED TO BE IN SHAPE TO START A POLE DANCE CLASS?
Our classes are tailored to help you learn pole dance as a complete beginner. We offer conditioning classes (polePOWER) to help you gain the strength and flexibility you may need for pole dance. We're in this together!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? DO I NEED TO BRING A YOGA MAT?
For poleSTART, poleDANCE, and polePOWER classes, less is best and we'll tell you why. Skin-to-pole contact is important so you don't just slide down the pole. We recommend wearing a light t-shirt or tank top. Sports bra recommended for the ladies and shorts (similar to hot shorts, booty shorts, or volleyball shorts) for everyone. Undergarments are mandatory. Absolutely NO nudity. Accessories and jewelry should be kept in you bag and off of your body. We don't want you to snag on anything or anyone. Also, please remove your shoes and socks.
For choreoPOLE, floorDANCE, and exoticPOLE, kneepads are highly recommended. You can purchase them online or at your local athletic store. Stiletto heels with ankle support is good for choreoPOLE and floorDANCE. Platform high heels (i.e., Pleaser) are good for exoticPOLE. Please make sure your shoes don't leave scuff marks on the floor.
Refrain from using lotions, oils, or anything similar on the day of your scheduled class.
Due to recent events and safety concerns, we recommend that you BRING YOUR OWN yoga mat, ankle weights, and alcohol/vodka spray bottle (if needed). Don't forget your water!
CAN MY FRIEND(S) OR FAMILY STAY AND WATCH?
We love having family and friends, but due to liability reasons, only ENROLLED students are allowed inside the studio.
Due to recent events and safety concerns, the common area is closed. Access to bathroom is available.
*Everyone in the studio is required to sign a liability waiver.
IS THERE PARKING?
Yes, the plaza provides a lot of parking.
