What is Electric Daisy Fitness?
Electric Daisy Fitness is a boutique studio, specializing in pole fitness. All classes are taught by the owner, a certified group fitness and pole fitness instructor, and include pole dance techniques, core strength, flexibility, and mobility training. Private and small group pole sessions are also available upon request. Visit the About page for more details about our studio.
Where are you located?
Our studio is located on Delaware Ave in the Town of Tonawanda. The studio’s main entrance is parallel to Delaware Ave, just two doors down from Allstate. There is plenty of parking, but we do recommend parking in the front or side of the building and entering the studio through the front door.
What is pole fitness?
Pole fitness is a fun, sexy and challenging workout with postural, strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular benefits. Students learn how to move up, down and around the pole with grace and style. You’ll explore sensual movement patterns and acrobatic tricks with and without the pole. At Electric Daisy Fitness, we teach safety first, body awareness, balanced muscle development, and more!
So, it’s stripping?
Nope, pole dancing has evolved beyond just being performed in strip clubs. Pole fitness is an international industry; women and men perform in dance competitions worldwide. Pole fitness would not exist without the leading exotic dancers of the 90s, however, who first introduced this dance style as a viable fitness option (R.E.S.P.E.C.T.). At Electric Daisy Fitness, we will absolutely explore exotic movement, but we will always encourage you to develop your own personal dance style with the pole.
What do I wear to class?
Please wear comfortable and supportive fitness or dance apparel. Skin grips the pole; fabric will slide. Shorts, tank tops, or layered clothing are recommended for Pole Dance Fundamentals and Pole Dance Inversions & Tricks classes. Leggings may be worn for Pole Spins & Flows. Please remove ALL jewelry, and do not wear clothing with zippers or metal details. Always be yourself and dress to your level of comfort.
You may dance barefoot or wear socks. Heels may be worn with instructor approval during practice time (if any), or when specified, but are worn at your own risk. Exotic dance heels (i.e. Pleaser heels) are the only kind of heels allowed in our studio. Please no street shoes or heels with metal details.

Do you have a changing room?
If possible, we ask that you arrive dressed and prepared to dance and exercise. We share bathrooms with the other tenants in the building, so if needed, you may change your clothes in the bathroom. Please be respectful of our neighbors and all common areas.
Do I need to bring anything to class?
Please bring water to stay hydrated. Knee pads, leg warmers or long socks are recommended for pole dance classes with floorwork. Pole grip aids can prevent sliding and help you stick to the pole when performing inversions and other tricks. You are welcome to bring a pole grip of your choice. As with any topical product, please make sure that the grip agrees with your skin.
Who can participate?
At Electric Daisy Fitness, you must be 18 years of age or older to participate in group fitness classes and private sessions. Pole dancing is for all shapes and sizes, however. We do advise you to talk to a medical professional before starting this or any fitness routine. As always, listen to and trust your body to ensure that the activities are not contraindicative (a.k.a. harmful) to any injuries or medical conditions, past and/or present.
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 pole fitness if you are pregnant. Please talk to your doctor about safe pre- and post-natal exercises and activities.
Do I need to be fit or have previous dance experience?
No! Classes are designed to accommodate a range of skill levels, and include conditioning with and without the pole. The instructor will provide regressions and progressions, as needed. IF YOU HAVE NEVER TAKEN A POLE DANCE CLASS BEFORE, we do ask that you repeat Pole Dance Fundamentals at least 4 times before moving on to other technique classes. Everyone will progress at their own rate, so you are welcome and encouraged to repeat Fundamentals more than 4 times, if needed.
Do you have spin pole classes?
Yes! Beginning May 1, 2019, we will offer Spin Pole Techniques to learn how to dance with the spinning pole. This class is for late beginners and above. Students must take a minimum of 4 Pole Dance Fundamentals classes before dropping in to Spin Pole Techniques. Our other pole dance technique classes are taught primarily on static, so you can learn proper points of contact and positioning of the body, but we’ll play with spin as well. Pole Dance Fundamentals uses the static pole only.
Do you offer party packages for bachelorette parties, birthday parties, etc.?
We currently offer private small group pole sessions upon request for groups up to 5 people. As we have 5 poles in the studio, this guarantees maximum time with the pole. If you have more than 5 people interested in a private lesson, please send us a message to see if we can accommodate the size of your party.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all major debit and credit cards. We do accept cash in person, however, class enrollment is limited and on a first come, first served basis. We encourage you to reserve your spot ahead of time by booking the class on our MINDBODY, Inc. page. Prepaid gift cards are also accepted, and available for purchase on our online store.
Electric Daisy Fitness is also a participating vendor on ClassPass, so you may book and pay for group exercise classes with your ClassPass membership as well.
I received a gift card, how can I redeem it?
