WHAT SHOULD I WEAR/BRING TO CLASS?

For a pole class you need to wear shorts and a comfortable top and no jewelry to be worn whilst on the poles. Please bring water, and a towel if you get particularly sweaty. We provide cloths for cleaning the poles and wiping hands.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN’T MAKE THE CLASS I’VE BOOKED?

Refunds will ONLY be sent with more than 24 hour notice of the session. If you are running late or can’t attend at short notice, please message your instructor directly to let them know you won’t be there. 


I’M A BEGINNER BUT I WANT TO ATTEND POLE FLOW OR HEELS

Pole Flow and Heels are both choreography based classes. You don’t have to be intermediate to attend, but we do recommend you have attended atleast 6 beginner classes and are comfortable with the different hand positions, and spins. Pole heels are very high, so it is also recommended you have strong ankles to particpate in this class, but conditioning exercises will be included in the sessions too.

Pole Flow is run on a 6 week course of choreography. Please message Mel (@dancing_sqiwell) to find out where in the 6 week course they are before booking to check it is a good time to join.


WHEN CAN I JOIN IMPROVERS?

Once you are able to climb, confident in basic sits, static spins and invert on your own into a crucifix. Your instructor should let you know when you’re ready to move onto the next level.


HOW DO I FIND THE STUDIO?

The Pole Club is situated on the 2nd Floor of Easthampstead Works, Bracknell, Town Square, RG12 1BH. After 6pm access is via the back door with a key code, your instructor will give this to you after a first class, but on first class you will be met at the back door. You can park at Weather Way car park, which is a pay and display and the closest to the studio, but all the town centre parking is close by.
