Why not give it a try!

Want to start pole but you are the one holding you back

Here's a few FAQ's to try and put your mind at ease. 

I want to start pole dancing, but I am very nervous!

It is normal to be apprehensive about trying any new activity. Our classes are not competitive and we encourage everyone to work to their own ability.

 Pole dancing will naturally increase your own self confidence as you exceed your own personal expectations. 

Some people decide to start with private lessons before starting mixed ability groups but this is not essential.

Do I need to be fit to start pole dancing?

Our pole dancing classes cater for all abilities so you do not need to have a minimum level of fitness to start. If you have any existing medical conditions or injuries you may wish to consult your GP for advice.

If you have recently had an accident, pregnancy or operation then you may need to seek medical advice before commencing our pole dance classes.

Do I have to wear shorts for pole dancing?
NO!! You can wear leggings or jog pants on the beginners courses, however as you progress it is advised you wear shorts. If you choose not to you may miss out on some of the moves you need leg grip for.

Why is pole dancing a good fitness activity?

Pole dancing can burn up to 300 calories per hour session.

Pole dancing involves both aerobic and anaerobic activity so you get a great workout.

Pole dancing is an all over body workout, it is a myth that it just works the upper body!

Pole dancing will not only improve your physical health but will boost your self confidence too.

Pole dancing is great fun and no doubt you will have many laughs during your workout.

Pole dancing will improve your posture and co-ordination.

Pole dancing will improve your flexibility and balance.

I auditioned for a job as a podium dancer and have been performing around the country ever since! Pole taught me to love exercise and I became a fitness instructor, and personal trainer, I love helping people, loose weight, gain confidence and achieve their goals.

Teaching pole dance is so rewarding, watching my students grow in strength, confidence and fitness is the best gift."

Bex Smith

I started pole fitness classes in March 2012 and instantly fell in love with it. Excluding P.E at school; I had no real fitness experience prior to this. Today pole fitness has changed every aspect of my life and made me a confident healthy person, mentally and physically.

In March 2013 I went on the Spin City Beginner Instructor Training course which provided me with the foundations needed to start teaching my own classes. It now brings me great joy to watch my students improve week on week. More recently I started teaching hoop dance classes and set up my own blog - Spinning Love Story. 

I am currently in the last year of a film and media degree. I hope in the future to do a personal training qualification and to continue help women to get fit and gain confidence!

Laura Holmes

I was a gymnast for 9 years and coaching assistant for three years. I started pole to help build my confidence while struggling with severe anxiety and since starting it's helped me to get my life back on track and keeps me motivated.

Thanks to being involved in pole I've learned aerial hoop skills and got the confidence to start teaching gymnastics again.

Hayley Brewer

I started pole two years ago, wanting to loose weight and gain confidence. In the two years I have done just that, dropping a few dress sizes and had gained enough confidence to enrol in an instructors course. I have been teaching since March 2013 and you thoroughly enjoy helping others reach their personal goals.

Here at L.A Studios, I offer a specially designed class for mums with young children. You can bring your little ones along whilst learning fun new tricks at your own pace and making new friends.

Dannie Laverick

After having a baby my body confidence and self esteem plummeted to a low level , i lost all my strength and turned to pole dancing as a way to bring it back up, with the help of amazing people and an incredible instructor my life has changed x
And I would recommend it to anyone!

And Finally.... ME!
