I’ve done pole before
Whether you’re currently pole dancing elsewhere, or you’re returning to The Pole Gym after a break, we conduct free assessments to see which level you will best fit into. Contact us to make an appointment for a level assessment.
More FAQ will be coming soon.
Our studio offers a variety of ways you can pay your course fees. You can book in and pay your fees upfront in full online here, or you can contact reception to organise payment via cash, EFTPOS, or bank transfer before booking in. Some courses are eligible for direct debit payment plans via ezidebit, please contact reception for more information if you would like to set this up. Our full price list can be found here.
When you book in for your first course/class with The Pole Gym, you will receive an email via our booking system Clubworx to complete an online Member Waiver that explains that we have zero joining fees or ongoing membership fees. Course Memberships are considered to be ‘single products’ that have been used once the course begins and cannot be refunded or transferred.
Please consider your choices carefully, as all fees paid for fitness services (such as courses) are non-refundable or transferable. Exceptions are made only at management’s sole discretion. Due to the fact that we have maximum class numbers and that each enrolment effectively books out a pole in the class for the full 6 weeks, refunds and transfers are very rarely granted after the first scheduled class has passed. This is because we are usually unable to fill a spot once the course has started. If we do provide a refund or transfer of credit, it will be minus any fees for classes already taken and minus, at minimum, an administration fee of 10% of your total course price. Please understand that we require a medical certificate or similar if we approve a full or partial refund or credit transfer.
Top: Wear what you would feel comfortable going to any dance or gym class in.
Shorts: Wear what you would feel comfortable going to any dance or gym class in but keep in mind that you need to be able to cling to the pole with your skin, so long tight leggings or bike pants need to be avoided. Short shorts or shorts that can be hiked up to climb are best. Your studio may stock pole shorts or skorts as well as other merchandise.
Shoes: You are more than welcome to just dance in bare feet or we recommend flat dance shoes to protect your feet from carpet burn. However you might find you enjoy the dancing more if you wear some pole dancing stilettos, which you can hire at the studio – these particular shoes are great for helping you stay on the pole in your climbs. You can also order your very own pair from the thousands of shoes we have in our catalogues at the studio. We also sell ankle protectors with grip which are like an ankle guard but have tack strips which also help you grip to the pole.
What else to bring: A bottle of water is a must and a towel if you like. The studios already have small towels and spray for wiping the poles.
Contact us if you have any questions or if you would like to secure a spot, or you can book online. Remember, they can go very quickly for certain course times, so if you’re not quite ready but want to check how many spaces are available, please feel free to give us a call.
We hope to see you soon in the studio – you’re going to love the fun, dance and fitness on offer at The Pole Gym.
