Frequently Asked Questions
I Want to try pole dancing but where do I start?
We recommend starting with the beginners series offered with purchase of any monthly membership. 4 one on one appointments to learn the foundation skills you will need to succeed in any studio classes or on your own.
What do I wear to class?
Pole is a skin contact sport, more skin that can touch the pole the better. We recommend dressing in layers. Sweat pants with socks for warmups. Shorts, tank top, or sports bra for dancing. Most importantly wear what makes you comfortable.
What if I am not comfortable wearing small clothes?
Modesty is supported in the pole community, we understand that not everyone is comfortable with being so exposed. Brands like PoleJunkie & other online pole stores sell clothes made to grip the pole. Leggings, long sleeve shirts, you name it, they have it. Feel free to wear those to the studio.
Is RPD a women's only studio?
RPD studio is open to all genders. Pole dancing originally comes from male dominated traditions & modern practices include all genders and presentations.
Do I have to wear platform heels?
Nope, platform heels are not required in any classes. Any style of non-outdoor shoes are welcome to be worn in the studio and during classes. You may also wear no shoes or just socks if you prefer.
