  • I have never taken a class before, where do I begin?
    -Take an 'Intro to Pole' taster class. We offer these once a month, they are 45 min long and they give you a wonderful introduction into the world of pole. After that you start your pole journey with a Pole 101 series. -Sign up for a Pole 101 series. These classes meet twice a week for 4 weeks and teach you to pole in a structured curriculum that gradually advances your whole class. Meet with the same core group every week and make friends in addition to learning to fly! (Intro to Pole taster is not required) -Book a private lesson or semi-private with a friend. Learn at your own pace in a more one on one environment. Click the Schedule Now button on our website and book your class now!
  • Do I have to have upper body strength, be fit, be flexible?
  • Do I have to wear those MONSTER heels?
    Only if you want to! All of our Pole Sport Series are taught barefoot. When most people hear pole dancing they tend to think of strip clubs. While the sensual side is still very present there are actually three main branches of pole dancing; Sport, Art and Sexy. We have classes available to express each of those!
  • I'm shy and worried I will feel too awkward in class...
    Dont be worried! Pole is the most supportive and uplifting community out there. You wont just leave with a good workout, you might leave with new friends! Come in and try a class, if its too uncomfortable you can always look into Private Lessons or Semi-Privates with friend!
  • I've taken classes before, where should I start?
  • Its my first time, what do I wear?
    Congrats! You've just booked you’ve just booked your first pole dance class, you’re probably equally excited and nervous! I had so many questions before my first pole class, one of the biggest being what to wear! For pole dance classes you will need to wear shorts so that you can use the skin on your legs to grip the pole. You should also wear a top that you are comfortable exercising in. Tank top or a sports bra is ideal. Definitely nothing with snaps or buttons (it can scratch the surface of the pole losing the shiny finish) Most of all, wear what you feel most confident in! You’ll probably find that as you become more experienced in the world of pole dance, your idea of what constitutes “comfortable” changes a little! We can't wait to go on that journey with you!
  • What if I miss a class?
    Life happens! If you miss a class or two you can always take a make up class if there is one on the schedule for your level or even drop into an open pole. NOTE: Classes do not roll over into the next series month.
  • Can my child/partner/cat/barista sit in the corner and watch?
    The Gem has a strict policy that the only people in the classroom be participants and instructors. While we love the idea of you sharing your passion, take pictures or videos and save class time for just YOU. <3
