I’ve done pole before

Whether you’re currently pole dancing elsewhere, or you’re returning to The Pole Gym after a break, each studio conducts assessments to see which level you will best fit into. Contact your local studio to make an appointment for a level assessment.

More FAQ will be coming soon.

Our studios offer a variety of ways you can pay your course fees. You pay your fees upfront in full via cash, EFTPOS, online, or bank transfer before your first class, or we offer direct debit facilities via Ezidebit Australia. Please see each studio’s price list for a full list of fees.

When you first visit The Pole Gym, you will sign an initial health screening waiver and agreement that explains that our membership fees are zero, our joining fees are zero, and then lists the full prices of all our standard course, casual classes and functions that you might like to book into as fitness services at the centre. Courses are considered to be ‘single products’ that have been used once the course begins and cannot be broken down into individual payments.

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 your nearest studio from the contact page for 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.
