Pole Pro Fitness Freqently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I need a dance or fitness background to take pole classes? Do I need to be strong or graceful to take pole classes?

Absolutely not!  Pole is for everyone.  We will work with you no matter where you are beginning your journey.

What should I wear to class?

There is absolutely no nudity allowed in class. Pole Pro is a professional fitness and dance studio. Typical gym wear like shorts and a t-shirt or tank top will do. Try to wear clothes that are breathable and made of soft material, like cotton. Do NOT wear jewelry and clothes that have buttons or zippers which can pinch your skin and/or scratch the pole. Avoid wearing bras with metal or plastic clasps. Sports bras are recommended. Do NOT wear any lotions or oils the day of class. You will be asked to remove your socks and shoes upon entering the studio.

What kind of shoes are appropriate for pole?

You can pole with no shoes, but we welcome the use of heels.  Heels must have an ankle strap on them to avoid having them come off.  Please see here for an example.  Pleasers and Ellie are two brands that make shoes for pole dancing.

What should I bring to class?

For sanitary reasons you will need to bring your own exercise mat or plush towel for the warm-up.
