What is pole dance fitness?
Pole dance fitness is a sport and artform utilizing a vertical metal pole. The art of pole originated in strip clubs and has now become an alternative fitness choice for women (and men) from all walks of life.
Pole dancing can incorporate other styles of dance such as ballet, jazz, and contemporary. In this sense, it is a very versatile artform in which dancers can create their own unique style.
Pole dancing also incorporates tricks which are reminiscent of other aerial arts such as aerial hoop (lyra) and aerial silks, as well as gymnastics elements.
Pole dance fitness competitions are run all around Australia and the world. There is also talk of pole dancing one day becoming an Olympic sport.
Do I need to be fit to start pole dance fitness?
No! You do not need to be fit, strong, or flexible to start.
At Sky High we have classes suitable for complete beginners. In our Beginner Pole Tricks classes, you will learn the absolute basics of the sport. You don't need to have any fitness background to begin! In fact, you'll soon find yourself feeling stronger within a matter of weeks.
What will I need for my first class?
For your first class at Sky High make sure you bring/wear shorts and a short sleaved top. You will need the skin on your legs and arms to be free so that you can grip the pole! For your safetly, please remove all jewelery from your hands, wrists, and feet.
We also suggest you bring a water bottle and arrive at class about 15 minutes early so that we can make sure you're all ready to begin your pole journey.
How do I book a class?
We use an online booking system called Mindbody to manage your classes. You can book your own classes online on our website: just go to the Book Now page and use the online scheduler.
Alternatively, you can book your classes on the go from your phone by downloading the free Mindbody app. Once the app is set up, you can search for Sky High Pole and Fitness and book in for your classes.
If neither of these work for you, you can message us on Facebook or call us on 0404065175 and we can help you.
Do you run terms/courses?
At Sky High we don't run terms or courses in which you book into a set classes every week for a set number of weeks.
We run our studio similar to a gym, hence you can book all of your classes casually around your schedule. This gives our students more flexibility to attend the class times that suit them. It also means you don't need to wait for a term to begin before starting pole with us! Just book in to your first class when you're ready to start your journey!
Payment options include pay as you go (casual), 8 class card bundles, and unlimited class memberships. See the 'Pricing Options' page for more info.
What's your cancellation policy?
We have a 6-hour cancellation policy, so as long as you cancel your class at least 6hrs prior to your class starting, you won't lose the class off of your class card or be charged a late cancellation fee!
This is to allow other students the opportunity to book as quite often some of our classes do book out!
You can cancel yourself out of classes on the Mindbody schedule on the 'Book Now' page or on the free Mindbody app on your phone.
