Frequently Asked Questions

How Should I Prepare For My First Pole Class?

Preparation begins before the class:

* do not apply body creams and lotions for at least 12 hours before training;
* remove jewelry that could touch the pole (rings, bracelets) or interfere with your training (long chains around the neck).

For sports: sportswear that includes short shorts. No footwear required. It is recommended to wear more layers for the warm up in cold weather.

For dancing: sportswear and kneepads. Depending on the dance style - soft socks or special platform heels.


What Grip Aid Can I Use?

If you sweat too much: liquid chalk, chalk sponges.

If the skin is too dry: sticky grip aid.

All options are suitable for the whole body unless the instructions indicate otherwise.

P.S. I recommend using all aids in moderation.
Especially when you are just getting started and the crucial skills are still being developed.

What Should I Know About Pole Dance Heels?

Sandals: Require stronger ankles and are better bought by the experienced.

Boots: more ankle support. The open toe gives the feet more flexibility. If you buy boots made of suede, they will slide easily on the ground and will not stick to the pole. With latex boots, you can stick to the pole, but also the ground.

It is recommended to start with 7 inch heels, but you can start with 8 inches.

The 2 most popular shoe manufacturers are Pleasers (true to size) and Hella Heels (running half a size small).

P.S. Dancers often wear cut-off socks over their shoes so that the shoes wear off less and slide more easily on the ground.
