New Students

I'M UNFIT AND UNCOORDINATED, AM I GOING TO BE OK TO START?

Absolutely! Our courses and classes are designed to get you fit and teach you how to dance and improve your coordination. You don't need any experience to join our courses and classes, just bring a positive attitude and we'll provide the rest!

CAN I TRY A CLASS BEFORE COMMITING TO AN 8-WEEK COURSE?

Definitely. Before you start a course, we highly recommend you purchase our 2 Week Intro Offer which will give you 5 classes for $50. It's a great way to get a taste of what our classes are like and what's involved. For more information about our Intro Offer visit our NEW DIVAS page.

I’VE DONE POLE OR AERIALS BEFORE, BUT NEVER AT POLE & AERIAL DIVAS. HOW DO I KNOW WHICH LEVEL I WILL BE IN?

Please contact the studio you wish to attend, and our friendly Desk Divas will schedule a free grading session for you. This is generally at 15 minute meeting with one of our instructors, where you will be asked to demonstrate your skills. Our instructor will be able to tell you which level you should book into.

WHAT DO I WEAR FOR POLE, LYRA OR SILKS CLASS? ARE HEELS COMPULSORY?

Watch our What to Wear video to find out more.
POLE - Heels are not compulsory in our pole 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!  
LYRA - Only socks are worn for Lyra and silks classes. Grip socks are ideal for silks.

CAN I DO MORE THAN ONE COURSE PER TERM?

Absolutely! We encourage our students to spend as much time on their chosen apparatus as possible and taking 2 courses in a term is a great way to reach your fitness & skill goals faster.   Our 2 Class Per Week Membership option is the most popular.  Check out our PRICING page for further information.

I'M MALE AND/OR UNDER 18 YEARS OLD, CAN I TAKE CLASSES AT POLE AND AERIAL DIVAS?

We are a female only space, and currently only run adults’ classes.  However, men and under 18’s are welcome in private lessons and private functions (depending on the studios liquor licencing restrictions).  Please contact your local studio for further information on these.  We are working on a syllabus for Teen Divas and Little Divas and hope to release it in 2020.

What is the difference between static and spin pole?

You may have noticed - some poles are static, while other poles spin. All our poles can be adjusted between static and spin, depending on the class and your preference. Static poles are fixed and don't move, whereas spin poles pivot around themselves, providing a great 360 degree view of any trick! Static pole requires you to create momentum to spin around it, and pin pole requires a more control to ensure the pole doesn’t spin too fast! If you’re brand new to pole dancing, try both static and spin to see what you like best! If you are unsure, haven’t done fitness for a while, or get dizzy easily, static pole can be a good place to start.

WILL I HAVE TO SHARE MY POLE, LYRA OR SILK?

No. We have a one student per apparatus policy, to give you maximum time during class to master the new tricks you learn!
