Do I need any dance experience or background to participate with classes?
No absolutely not, there are no prerequisites. Anyone can do it!
Do I need to be strong or flexible to participate?
Not at all. In the beginners classes we start from the very beginning and structure our classes in a way that all fitness levels are accommodated.
Are pole and aerial arts just for women?
No! We welcome everyone in our pole, silks, and lyra (hoop) programs. We have several men participating already who absolutely love it. Pole dancing and aerial arts are fun, engaging, full-body workouts for anyone who wants to try them.
How large are your class sizes?
We like to keep things small so each student gets the attention they deserve. There will never be more than five students in one class.
What should I wear to class?
You should wear shorts, preferably above the knee in a stretchy fabric. On your feet feel free to go barefoot, sneakers or even heels.
What do I do if I can’t grip the pole?
If you are having trouble gripping the pole you should try some of the Liquid Chalk/Dry Hands available at the studio. Shaving cream or hairspray on your legs can also help.
I would love to attend classes but cannot get a babysitter?
We have a children’s room right next to the studio so you can keep an eye on the kids whilst they play with the toys and you enjoy your class. Parents are welcome at all classes.
Are under 18s allowed to participate in classes?
Yes, we will however need a signature from a parent or guardian.
I would love to take some photos at the end of the the term to show people how much I’ve learned, is this possible?
Yes! On the last lesson of the term we set aside 10 minutes to take a few pictures of you and how much you have learnt to show your friends and family.
What kind of poles do have at Vertigal?
We use Brass Pussycat Poles with a Diameter of 38.1 mm. They are 3080mm high and spinning.
None of the class times suit my schedule?
We are very flexible. If you and at least two other friends would like to do classes at a time that is not on the timetable, we will work out a time that suits you.
