Q. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
You can check out our recommended pole wear here: www.shimmyandsparkle.com. Or, just wear shorts and a singlet top, crop top or t-shirt. You need to have bare legs to grip the pole! Don't wear moisturiser on the day of your class.
Q. WHICH CLASSES SHOULD I BOOK?
We recommend doing a Prepaid Package of 2-3 classes per week to get the most out of your pole training. When you book a Prepaid Package, you get huge savings of 50% or more off your extra classes! Book a Prepaid Package by logging into your Customer Area, and then choose your classes.
As a beginner, you should enrol in:
BEGINNERS POLE CLASS: to learn all the beginner tricks in the beginner syllabus safely and steadily and to build your strength, flexibility and coordination,
STRETCH & FLEX: for flexibility and conditioning for long, lean, toned, flexible muscles,
INTRO TO POLE CHOREO: for cardio, coordination, strengthening, flexibility
Q. WHAT IF I GET SWEATY HANDS?
Don't panic! It's completely normal. We recommend you buy a bottle of Dry Hands in the studio. Check out our blog on Sweaty Palms for extra tips.
You've come to the right place to start your pole journey! All our staff and students are proof of the power of pole dance to make you look and feel amazing. In fact, it will probably change your life. We aren't even exaggerating!
To book a class immediately yourself, click on the class you want to attend and then you can choose to:
enrol in the full 8 week course - the normal price is $230, but you can use the promo code NEWBIE to get a $30 discount, or
select the option to only pay a $20 deposit for your obligation-free trial class. NB: the booking system will ask you for payment of the full amount, but you can select to only pay a $20 deposit. If you do not wish to continue for 8 weeks, let us know and we will cancel the booking.
Trial classes are for anyone who is not already a Pole Dance Academy student. You can be a first-time pole dancer or an advanced pole dancer from another studio. The only rule is that you must be a Sydney resident and one per person.
