What to wear
Something that you would normally wear to either an aerobics or a gym session - i.e. jogging bottoms, shorts and a t-shirt etc. You do not need to wear heels at the start, but you can bring them if you wish! Or alternatively, you can buy outfits and shoes for class from our shop.
Heels can be a hindrance at the start of your course but as time goes on you are more than welcome to experiment with them and also with other clothing such as skirts and shorts etc. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible so please turn up on your first day in comfortable clothing and then once you have started the course and got to know the other members of the group you can then decide if slipping into something more adventurous or practical suits you !!
At times you will need to have skin contact with the pole, but for those who are slightly self conscious who will be wearing jogging bottoms, you can either just roll up the trouser leg material to above the knee for that particular pole trick or we will choose another trick to give you that doesn’t involve exposing your skin if you prefer to do that instead.
Payment can be made either online using a credit/debit card, PAYPAL or by sending us a cheque. Payment will need to be made in full and in advance for each course. Spaces available at the time of booking cannot be guaranteed until payment is received. We will contact you to confirm there are spaces available. Last minute bookings can be made whereby payment is made on the first day of the new course but please be aware that at this late stage spaces cannot be guaranteed, so to avoid disappointment please contact us first to ensure there are still spaces available.
Please book your preferred venue and course date using the online "Buy Now" option and we will confirm your booking by email. You will be notified if there is a problem with your choice of course dates and any other issues regarding your booking. Please fill in all the details in the payment form as accurately as you can.
