3. How do I prepare for pole dancing class?

  • You do not need to have pre-training or a special background to take pole classes. Don't fall into a trap of trying to prepare for pole dance by doing different types of activity. eg. one does not train for figure skating by doing Zumba. Same applies here!

  • Come as you are and we will get you there. Our training program is built to work with beginner-level students without any prior background.

5. What kind of shoes do I wear to Pole Dance classes and Floorwork classes?

  • Shoes are not a requirement for pole dancing classes. They are a part of the technique for Pole Dance and Heels Floorwork, but starting in socks is perfectly fine. After a few classes, you will decide whether you want to invest in shoes or not.

  • A specific type of pole shoes will be needed. For your first pair, we recommend shoes or boots (your choice) with a 7” heel. 

  • Students are allowed to wear shoes in Pole Tricks classes.

  • If you’d like to see what they feel like, shoes are available for rent at the studio for $10.


6. Can I watch a class before taking it?

  • Being watched may make students in class uncomfortable, therefore, we do not have “watch a class” option.

  • We do have plenty of videos from our classes  on our Instagram page, under  hashtag #akpolestudio  and in our highlighted stories. Browse through those until you feel comfortable taking a class. 

  • Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions via text (619-607-3722).

7. What’s the difference between Pole Dance classes and Pole Tricks classes?

  • Pole Dance is a choreography class. Pole Tricks is a fitness workout class. Both types of pole classes are extremely fun and a great workout, but they are definitely different.

  • Some people do pole tricks only, and some stick strictly to pole dance. There are also plenty of those who can't live without both.

  • You do not know until you try, and it only takes one time to fall in love!
