Pole Dancing Frequently Asked Questions
I'm unfit and I don't know how to dance, can I still take classes?
Absolutely! Our courses and classes are designed to get you fit and teach you how to pole dance. You don't need any experience to join our courses and classes, just bring a positive attitude and we'll provide the rest!
How do I book?
Each of our studios can take your booking over the phone or you can use our online booking sites to make your booking. All you need to do is decide which studio you'd like to attend, take a look at their timetable and contact them. Bookings must be made in advance to ensure we have space for you, our studios operate a strict one person per pole policy so please don't just turn up as if the class is full we will not be able to accommodate you. Due to the limited number of poles, bookings must be paid for in advance as well.
Is there a discount if I take classes between studios?
Pole Divas Studios are Franchises and so are owned separately, which means there is no discount if you take classes across studios.
Can I pay as I go for courses?
Our studios offer a fortnight Direct Debit option for 8 week courses when you sign up for 12 months. The Direct Debit payment amount of $57.50 is taken out fortnightly. Alternatively you are must pay upfront for each term you wish to participate in. Our studios require payment in full prior to the course commencement in order to secure your pole for the term. If you are booking more than 1 week out from a term you may pay a $100 deposit towards your course, the balance will then be due 1 week before the course starts.
Is there a discount for University Students?
We offer student discount on selected day time courses for Uni Students. On our timetables you will see these courses indicated with a **. You must provide Student ID to access this discount.
What do I wear? Are heels compulsory?
Please see our What to Wear page to find out more. Heels are not compulsory in our courses or classes but we highly recommend them! If you decide to wear heels they do not need to be our pole dancing stilettos, any heels that make you feel sexy and confident are perfect!
Can I do more than one course per term?
Absolutely! We encourage our students to spend as much time on the pole as possible and taking 2 courses in a term is a great way to reach your pole dancing goals faster. Most students will take a static and a spinning pole course in the same term and if you take a second course you'll get $50 off. Applies to courses in the same term & at the same studio.
Do I move up into the next course level each term?
At the end of every term our instructors will asses you and let you know if you are able to move up into the next level. The most important consideration here is safety of our students as each level completed provides the foundation for more difficult moves in the next level, we need to be 100% confident that you are safe to move up before we will let you. Please be aware that it is totally normal for students to repeat levels and work on nailing tricks before they move up. If you do not move up at the end of a term please don't be disheartened, the worst thing we could do is put you into a level we know you wont feel confident in and where you won't achieve your goals. Please trust our instructors to make the right choice for you based on your skills, they are more than happy to talk to you about your options at the end of each term.
I can't make one of my classes, what happens?
If you are booked into a course and are not able to make one session (due to work, holiday etc) then please contact your studio ASAP. The more notice we have the more likely we will be able to offer you a make up class that week so you do not miss any content. We will always try our hardest to offer you another day that week but as courses are often very full we can never guarantee this. If you do not tell us in advance your class will not 'roll over' to the next term, and if you can't make another course time we are not able to offer casual classes in places of missed course sessions. Please be aware that we are open on most Public Holidays.
I'm male and/or under 18 years old, can I take classes at Pole Divas?
We are sorry but we do not offer classes for men or for anyone under 18 years old. As one of the first pole dancing schools in Melbourne, we've have always thought that pole dancing best suited to adults and so do not allow anyone under 18 into our studios. Men are not allowed in our studios.
