…YOU’VE PROBABLY GOT A FEW QUESTIONS…
SO WE’VE PUT THIS TOGETHER TO ANSWER THEM!
WHAT DO I WEAR?
Shorts and a top will do you just fine! Don’t stress that you’ll be ‘overdressed’ when watching the more advanced classes… they use that extra skin to stick to the pole!
WHAT ABOUT SHOES?
We’re all about respecting the origins of pole… so most of our students wear heels! Don’t feel like you need to commit to the ‘stripper shoes’ first week in… feel free to bring some heels along (no louboutins!) that can get a little knocked around – otherwise bare foot is also completely fine. No runners needed!
BUT… WHERE DO I BUY THE SHOES?
Head to High Heels – 292 Crown St, Surry Hills! Tell them you’re from Bobbi’s Gold and they’ll look after you! You can also shop online with them here, but we always recommend to go try a pair on first.
DO I NEED TO PREPARE?
We don’t expect you to be a professional before you come in..! No prior knowledge required! Just make sure you don’t moisturise the day of pole… You’ll slide right down (which is a bad thing!). Come about 10 minutes before class starts to sign some papers and you’ll be ready!
CAN I COME TO PRACTICE OUTSIDE OF CLASS TIME?
We offer practice time for both students and non students:
Monday 2pm – 4pm
Students: $10 | Non-Students: $30
BUT… I’M A DANCER FROM WAY BACK
We love that, but no skipping for you. Pole dancing is complicated, and you need to start from beginners to learn the foundation moves before you can move up.
DO I NEED TO BE ‘FIT’?
Pole dancing doesn’t discriminate, nor do we! No matter what your size or fitness ability, you will find that pole dancing tones your body and increase your strength. We celebrate the body’s ability to move, not what it looks like, and believe we should exercise to feel good, not to lose weight.
DO YOU HAVE AGE RESTRICTIONS?
Because of the nature and content of the classes, you must be over 18 to come to classes at Bobbi’s Gold.
DO YOU ONLY TEACH FEMALES?
Absolutely not! All classes are open to any person, no matter how they identify.
HOW LONG ARE THE CLASSES, AND THE TERM?
The classes are an hour each (unless specified otherwise) and you book in for an 8 week term. We have 6 x eight week terms a year.
WHAT IF I MISS A WEEK?
Ask your teacher or a friendly receptionist where you can do a make up class. As long as it’s within the 8 week term you can join in wherever there’s a free spot! It’s recommended to do the class in the same week so you don’t miss a move, though we understand this isn’t always possible.
I’VE POLE DANCED BEFORE…
Give us a call, or come see us in the studio, and we’ll chat about your previous experience and the best level for you to go into!
