FAQ

What can/should I wear?

You can wear whatever makes you feel comfortable to your first class! We recommend wearing tight fitting, comfortable clothing that allow for free movement. Loose clothing can get in the way when you are dancing. Leggings, yoga pants or shorts with a t-shirt or tank top and bare feet work best. The stilettos are optional!

What do I need to bring to my first class?

Bring your workout clothes, a bottle of water, and prepare to have fun! Some students also like to bring pole grip with them, but not to worry if you don’t have any, as we sell some at the studio.

Do I have to dance in heels?

Stilettos are totally optional! Some students prefer to dance with them, and some choose to go with bare feet. Generally we ask our beginner students to wait until Level 3 before dancing in heels.

I have never taken a class before. Where do I start?

All new students start in our Level 1 Beginner class and work their way through the program at their own pace. Please see our Class Schedule to see when our Beginner classes are running and register online, or contact the studio for more information.

I’ve taken pole dancing classes before, do I have to start from the beginning if I join Aradia?

Absolutely not! If you’ve got previous pole experience we are happy to assess your abilities to help you select the classes that will best suit your skills and knowledge.

Are there men in the classes?

Generally, most of our classes are women only. If you are a man interested in our pole classes we are happy to try to accommodate you.

How do women benefit from attending Aradia Fitness classes?

What is a workshop?

A workshop is a special class that is usually 1.5 hours long and focuses on a specific routine. For example, there are lap-dance workshops, where students learn a full lap-dance routine; couples workshops, where men and women learn a routine together; health and wellness workshops; and even “twerkshops”, where students learn various styles of twerking. To see our upcoming workshops please see our Workshops page.

Can I still attend class if I’m pregnant?

While some women do continue to pole dance while pregnant, we strongly advise against it and do not permit pregnant students to take pole dance classes. Pregnant women can, however, still participate in non-pole classes, such as our stretching classes.

We accept cash, credit, and debit!
