ABOUT POLE DANCING

What is pole fitness, and where did it come from?

Pole “fitness” is another name for pole dancing that is performed in a studio or gym setting, and emphasizes the physical benefits of pole. Pole dancing originated in strip clubs, and was first introduced to the public as a viable workout by strippers in the 90s. Today, pole dancing is performed in strip clubs, dance studios, festivals and competitions worldwide. But if you enjoy pole as a recreational activity (especially dancing in heels), please respect the profession and support those that continue to put in the work to shape our dance in the clubs.

Is pole dancing really a sport?

Yes! Pole dancing and the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF) was recognized as an official sport when it received “observer status” for the Olympics Games by the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) in 2017. They describe pole as a performance sport combining dance and acrobatics on a vertical pole, requiring (1) great physical and mental exertion, strength and endurance to lift, hold and spin the body, and (2) flexibility to contort, pose, demonstrate lines and execute techniques.

At Electric Daisy Fitness, we believe pole dancing is work, performance art, and a competitive sport, and ALL forms of pole dancing are beautiful and acceptable.


ABOUT POLE CLASSES

What do I wear to pole class?

Always be yourself and dress to your level of comfort. Know this: Skin grips the pole, fabric will slide. The more skin we have exposed, the better we can grip the pole. Shorts, tank tops, or layered clothing are recommended. Please remove ALL jewelry, and do not wear clothing with metal details. Knee pads, leg warmers or long socks are recommended for classes with floor work, like Pole Dance Choreography and Heel Techniques.

Can I wear heels?

Heels may be worn with instructor approval during practice time (if any), or when specified in the class description, but are worn at your own risk. Pole heels, like Pleaser or Ellie brands, are the only kind of heels allowed in our studio. Please no street shoes or heels with metal details.

Do I need to bring anything to class?

Please bring water to stay hydrated. While we have yoga mats available at the studio, you may bring your own yoga mat for the warm-up.

Who can participate?

At Electric Daisy Fitness, you must be 18 years of age or older to participate in group classes and private appointments. Pole dancing is for all shapes, sizes, and genders, however. As always, listen to your body to ensure that the activities are not harmful to any injuries or medical conditions, past and/or present. When in doubt, please talk to a medical professional before starting this or any fitness routine.

Do I need to be fit or have previous dance experience?

No! Classes are designed to accommodate a range of skill and fitness levels. However, if you have never taken a pole dance class before, please complete our Beginner Pole Dance: 4 Week Series or repeat Pole Dance Fundamentals at least 6 times before moving on to more advanced classes. Everyone will progress at their own rate, so you are welcome and encouraged to repeat beginner classes more than 6 times, if needed.

I’m under 18 years old, can I attend class if I’m accompanied by an adult or have a parent/guardian signature?

No. While children’s pole programs do exist, this is not an offering at Electric Daisy Fitness. You must be 18 years of age or older to visit.

I’m pregnant, can I participate in pole classes?

We want you and baby to be safe and healthy. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends avoiding high risk activities that may result in a fall, while pregnant. At this time, our studio does not recommend starting pole fitness if you are pregnant. Please talk to your doctor about safe pre- and post-natal exercises and activities.

Can men take pole classes?

Yes. Men can participate in pole dance classes and appointments at our studio.
