OUR MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Q- How do I get started & which Package is best?

A = Our most popular package to get started with is our Blue Package. You can book it online here! – http://www.dcpolefitness.com.au/pole-packages/ Or alternatively you can call the studio on 0439481959 or email reception@dcpolefitness.com.au to book. Our reception hours are Mon – Thurs 5.30pm – 8.30pm and Sat 12 – 3pm.

Q- Can I try it first?

A = Certainly! We have a bunch of awesome casual classes you can do as a beginner/any level but the one we highly recommend to try first is our Pole Tricks class. We are super confident that you will love it and book a course anyhow 😉 Just don’t leave it too late to get into your preferred course as they can fill quickly!

Q – Do I have to get strong first  

A = Definitely not!! Most our students can’t hold their own body weight when they start with us – we teach you how to gain more strength gradually and safely.

Q – Am I too big?  

A = Are you over 100Kg?  If so you will be over the weight limit for our poles but we can get you started with our non-pole classes. We have students that have lost half their body weight or more doing regular classes with us, but you are not too big to start and we have students of all shapes and sizes!

Q – Do you have age restrictions?

A = We teach from 12 yrs and up!  We have students up to in their 70’s.  You are never too old to start and pole dance keeps your body and mind healthy and happy so most pole dancers do not look their age 😉

Q – Do I need any dance or fitness experience?

A = No, we teach you everything from scratch even if you are super uncoordinated and super unfit 🙂

Q – Do I have to wear tiny shorts? What do I wear?

A = No you don’t 🙂 You just need to wear what you can move freely in, but skin sticks to the pole so you need to be able to roll up and expose to mid thigh to stick.  Shorts can be easier but whatever you can bare your legs to mid thigh will work.  We also go bare feet and most students wear gym clothes.

Q – I have a health condition/injury, will I be able to attend classes?  

A= If you have an injury/health condition that may affect your ability and safety you will just need to check with your Doctor/Specialist and supply us with a clearance note from them.  If it’s ok with your Doctor/Specialist it is ok with us plus we can work around certain injuries/health conditions. Your safety is our priority!

Q – What do I do after the 8 week course level?

A= After this course you can either move up into our higher course levels as your strength and skill builds or continue with our casual classes or do both!  Of course we have a lot of students who repeat course levels as there are a lot of moves to achieve in each level and repeating is quite normal and sometimes may be necessary to gain the strength needed to move up.  Some students choose to continue doing beginner courses as each term has a new pole dance routine and some students aren’t interested in performing harder strength tricks, they just want to learn new pole dance routines or just like performing the tricks in the level.

Q – What if I am already quite strong? – or – What if I am a dancer? – or – What if I am a gymnast? – Can I skip 1 or more levels?

A= It’s great that you are strong, that means you will find the ‘strength moves’ easier, it’s great if you are flexy as you will find the flexy moves easier and it’s great if you are a dancer as you will find the routines easier… but you do still need to learn all the basics no matter how strong/flexy/experienced in dance/gymnastics you are as these make the basis for every level above and there is a lot of technique/muscle progression to learn specific to pole dance.

FAST TRACKING – Here are the options for fast tracking though if you don’t want to do an 8 wk Beginner course level.

OPTION #1 – The fastest option.  Book a 1 hour or 1.5 hour private to be taught and marked off on the Beginner moves – you can do as many privates as you need and if you are strong and coordinated enough you may get all the Beginner moves marked off in 1 x private plus be given 1 on 1 attention.

1 hour private = $90

1.5 hour private = $120

OR

OPTION #2 –  Appears to be the cheaper option but depends how many classes you need. Attend our Pole Tutoring casual group classes where the instructor can teach you 2 moves each class  that you can get marked off on.  Bare in mind there are approx 15 moves to be marked off on in the Beginner level so this will take multiple pole tutoring classes – approx 7.

$20 per class OR 5 pass $90 (lasts one month)  OR 10 pass $165 (lasts 2 months)

OR

OPTION #3 – The more popular option – Attend the 8 wk Beginner course and although you may get the strength moves quicker, you may still need the time to nail the technique of each pole move.  You also learn a Beginner routine to put all the moves together and if you feel like you have already nailed the move being taught at the time,  you can focus on nailing it on your non-preferred side also which is recommended to keep your body in balance anyhow.

$200 for the basic course along (pole packages with casual classes also available)

We are happy to help you with whichever or the three above options you choose 🙂

Q – What if I have been attending another pole studio? What level would I be?

A= As all pole studios teach differently and have different things in their levels it is impossible for us to be sure. For us to asses which level at Diamond Class you are, there are two options.

OPTION #1 – The fastest option.  Book a 1 hour or 1.5 hour private lesson to show the moves you have learnt and be assessed on which level is best suited + learn if you need to work on a few things before you enter a level you want to join. We will give you the training to work at building your strength and technique to progress to the level you want.

1 hour private = $90

1.5 hour private = $120

OR

OPTION #2 –  Come to our  Pole Tutoring group casual class where the instructor makes it around the room twice to have a look at a few of your moves and check a few to see if you can do them.  This will take multiple lessons to work out exactly which level you can confidently go into though.

$20 per class  OR 5 pass $90 (lasts one month)  OR 10 pass $165 (lasts 2 months)

OR

OPTION #3 – You can start from scratch with us and start at our Beginner Level.  There may be a lot of things you can do but there may be a lot you haven’t seen and it’s also a chance to work on your non-preferred side and get used to how we teach at Diamond Class.

$200 for the basic course alone (pole packages with casual classes also available)

Q – What if I want to progress faster?

A= We offer a fun range of group casual  fitness classes that will  help with speeding up your progression.

Our students who do the 8 wk pole courses as well as our casual clas

ses progress a lot faster.   To progress faster with pole dance you need to do more pole dance classes.  Pole Dancing uses functional strength so lifting weights at the gym really doesn’t help.

You can see a list of all our classes/courses and timetable on our website www.dcpolefitness.com.au
