The answers to life's little ponders......
HOW DO I BOOK AND PAY FOR LESSONS?
1) Choose which class you would like to attend by checking out the timetable.
2) Go to the online booking system page and make a reservation *see below for how the online booking system works.
3) Decide how you would like to pay - over the phone, online, in person, by cheque, cash or card.
Payment options such as mini memberships can save you time and money - see Pricing for more details.
Courses must be paid more at lease 48 hours before start.
Only when payment has been received is your place guaranteed.
WHAT SHALL I WEAR?
Skin contact is required for grip on the pole. For most classes it is best to wear something comfortable like tracksuit bottoms with some shorts underneath or to change into. A vest top , t-shirt or hoody is fine.
Leg warmers, trainers, heels - its up to you - we want you to feel comfortable and confident.
Studio 22 offer a range of suitable fitness clothing. For more information CLICK HERE
I'VE GOT DRY SKIN - SHALL I MOISTURISE?
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Moisturiser is a pole dancers worst enemy - it will severely hinder your progress as you will have no grip. 24 hours before a class is probably the cut off point I'm afraid. And this means legs too as they are needed to climb and grip the pole. If you've got some on before a class, wash thoroughly and you should be good to go.
WHY DO I HAVE TO REMOVE MY JEWELLERY?
Metal against metal impairs your grip. We need to maximise your grip. You will need to remove rings, bracelets and watches. Also, the poles are specialised equipment; jewelery makes pretty patterns on the poles but also damages them (the poles that is; though your jewelery may also become damaged).
WHAT TYPES OF PEOPLE COME TO CLASS?
All sorts of shapes, sizes, ages and abilities come together in pole classes.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN EACH CLASS?
Each class varies but the maximum number in a pole dance class is 10 (2 to a pole)
IS THERE ANY STRIPPING?
No - only changing in to shorts and you may use the changing room. No nudity in class.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
So many we could write a book, but we haven't the time, so here's a few to wet your appetite:
