WHERE TO START
There is no pre-requisite dance or fitness experience needed. Don’t forget we were all beginners once.
Almost all the classes are levelled to ensure that you progress safely and effectively. If you are completely new to pole and aerial fitness, we recommend that you start with a taster session.
Taster sessions after our initial set-up period will run at least once a month, where you will get to try both pole and aerial hoop to see what you enjoy the most.
If you can’t make a taster session, you are welcome to start with a beginners class or a 1-2-1 session at a time that suits you. Please see the timetable on our website
Anyone can do it. Although it does take time, effort and training, but classes and aerial equipment can be tailored to fit the needs and physical ability of the individual. Therefore there’s no reason not to try a taster session.
WHAT TO EXPECT
When you arrive at the studio you’ll be welcomed by an Instructor who will check you in, show you where to put your belongings and answer any questions you may have.
Please don’t worry, we know that you may be a little nervous, but we’ll do our very best to put you at ease and get you having lots of fun within minutes. Once everyone has arrived you’ll find yourself a space in the studio to begin with a warm up to get you ready for the class ahead.
After the warm up, it’s straight onto the equipment. It is most likely you will share with another student (2 to equipment) this allows for you to help each other, have a break and also get to know someone if you have come alone (most people do). You’ll then be shown you first move to try, the Instructor will break it down for you, and is more than happy to show you as many times as you need, so please don’t be afraid to ask.
You’ll get to try out the move several times before moving on to the next one. Moves follow the Pole Power syllabus which we will track for you in your personal tracker, which is kept at the studio. Pole Power has also created the Pole Magic Book and PDF so that students can also keep track, learn the move names and goal plan those desired moves. You’ll learn conditioning moves, poses, tricks, spins and develop mastering them all in combos.
At the end of the class you’ll have a thorough stretch and the opportunity to ask any questions.
Tips for making the most of your class:
· Avoid upper body workouts the day before class
· Get enough sleep the night before
· Eat something 60 – 90 minutes prior to class
· Avoid using moisturisers 24 hours before class
· Drink plenty of water before, during and after class and remember to bring a water bottle
· Don’t wear anything too baggy, it may get caught

Progressing in your pole or aerial fitness in this manner will give you the necessary skills to progress safely and effectively.
