What Happens When I Book?

Upon booking your will receive an email of your payment transaction from Paypal. You will later receive a confirmation booking from us with details on the location, dates and times, what to wear and what to bring.

Please make sure you look up the correct venue on the Locations page and arrive in plenty of time for your first session – 10 minutes is preferable.

What Will I Need To Bring To The Class?

Bring water to the class as it is thirsty work! Pen and paper are also good for noting down moves and ideas to work on. You are more than welcome to bring a camera to take pictures of your progression – please do not take pictures of your instructor or others in the class, unless they give their permission.

You may want to bring a small towel or flannel to wipe your hands or body when you get a bit sweaty.

How Many People Are There Per Pole or Hoop?

There is a limited number of spaces on each course as we have a maximum of 2 people per pole and 2 per hoop.

What Should I Wear to Pole?

Skin contact with the pole is ideal. It is best to wear shorts and a vest top for maximum skin to pole contact. Please bring something to keep yourself warm in the studio until we have warmed up, especially in the winter.

We do not wear shoes in the studio so please bear this in mind – you may wear socks to warm up in, but we do not wear socks while on the poles.

Please note we do not wear rings, bracelets, watches or necklaces as it can scratch the poles and be a danger to yourself.

What Should I Wear to Aerial Hoop?

It is best to keep your skin covered on areas the hoop might touch, other than hands. For this reason it is best to wear leggings and a vest / t-shirt. You can also wear a light jumper until you feel warm.

We do not wear shoes in the studio so please bear this in mind – you may wear socks to warm up in. For some hoop moves you can wear socks.

Please note we do not wear rings, bracelets, watches or necklaces as it can scratch the hoop and be a danger to yourself.

I Am Pregnant. Can I Participate?

Unfortunately you can not participate in our classes.

I Have Health Problems. May I Participate?

As with any physical exercise, it is always best to consult a doctor before participating. If you have booked a session or course and have a health concern or issue, please get in touch before the first class.

Is There An Age Limit On The Class?

While you need to be over 18 to participate, there is no upper age limit.

Can Anyone Attend?

Our classes are for any gender, size or shape. All are welcome!

Can I Bring A Friend To Watch?

Unfortunately we can only have students in the class room. We do not have enough room for others to come along and watch – it can also be distracting in class.

I Want To Do A Level But Can’t Make That Time – What Can I Do?

You can book in 1:1 sessions to go over all of the moves from the level you will miss, to then be able to continue with the other levels. It is likely that you will need two or three 1:1 sessions to be caught up.

You can also book in regular 1:1 sessions rather than group classes.

Where Can I Find More Pole Info?

We have a secret Firefly Poles group on Facebook which you will be invited to during the first course.

We also have some pole videos if you search for PoleFreaks on YouTube and Instagram. We also have our sister site PoleFreaks.com for pole blogs, and our Facebook group PoleFreaks – Pole Chat.

Other Points To Note

Please arrive 10 minutes early for your first session. This will allow you time to find the studio and fill in relevant forms before starting your class.

Please be on time for the warm up for each class. It is important and will prevent injury. Please note that if you miss the warm up you may not be able to take part in your class.

If you have any questions in class please ask us during the sessions.
