A: For your first couple of classes, wear whatever you feel most comfortable to exercise in. You’re instructor will let you know when they need you to wear something else. For Aerials, we recommend leggings, and singlets or t shirts. For Pole, we recommend loose fitting shorts, that can be moved away to expose your skin when needed to grip the Pole. We do sell appropriate clothing at our studios. Feeling a little nervous about eventually getting in to shorts? Have a chat to us about your options.
Q: DO I HAVE TO WEAR HEELS?
A: Not at all! Although they are super cute and fun to dance in! Please don’t bring regular heels from home to the studios. We do sell Pole Dancing heels at our studios, which won’t harm our poles and floors like regular heels often can.

Too many things can go wrong in the class environment where your child could be hurt. They can also distract other students in class and we can’t have that. Leaving them unsupervised in our Reception Areas is not an option, so please find someone to mind them or please miss the class.
Q: I FEEL VERY UNFIT, SHOULD I GO TO THE GYM ASWELL?
A: Any additional fitness will help you, however, don’t go signing up to the gym just to help you with pole or aerials. the strength we do at the end of classes will have at least one thing you can regularly do at home. these strength exercises are there to help you on your journey.

A: This is different for every individual. You will need to ask your doctor for permission.

A: We don’t offer make up classes. We do offer top up classes. They are the ability to come another night without having to commit to an entire second course. Normally $22.50, if you miss a class, these become $10 but you need to do your level or below in the same apparatus.
Q: I WANT TO BUY “INSERT ITEM HERE” BUT YOU DON’T HAVE MY SIZE OR I DON’T LIKE THE STYLE, CAN YOU CUSTOM ORDER FOR ME?

Q: MY FRIEND WANTS TO GO TO A SAMPLE CLASS, CAN I GO WITH THEM?
A: Of course! We would love you to bring them to samples!
Q: I MISSED/AM GOING TO MISS MY CLASS, HOW CAN I MAKE UP FOR IT?
A: Unfortunately we don’t offer make up classes. If you know in advanced you’re going to be away, you can attend the same course in the same week (subject to availability) for $10. Just book online at www.polequeens.gettimely.com under casual course attendance (it will tell you its $32.50, but only charge you $10). If you’re unable to make these, it is your responsibility to catch up on the content you have missed via Private Lessons. Please understand that we teach off a structured syllabus and progress tricks, combos and dance routines from week to week. By not attending your class or a Private Lesson, you will fall behind as your instructors are unable to dedicate the additional time to catch you up to speed with all the content you missed, while trying to teach the new content for the week. Privates can be half an hour or an hour, or split with someone. Feel free to post in your local studio group to see if anyone wants to join you.
Q: MY CLASS FALLS ON A PUBLIC HOLIDAY, DO CLASSES STILL RUN?
A: We run our courses 48 weeks a year. We don’t run courses during the Xmas/New Year period, and will continue to run classes during the Easter period.
