Once your course is bought you can go to the “SINGLE CLASS BOOKING” section and select the class. Then chose all the occasions you want to attend during the term.
For example, if you have a 1 class per week pole subscription and you are planning to come all Wednesdays, you can select all Wednesdays of the term in the level you are in. This will ensure that your spot is secured for the whole term.
It is always possible to come back and cancel one specific class if you can’t make it. if you do so 8 8 h before the class, you can use that class later to catch up the following week. If you haven’t cancelled it 8 h before, the class will be considered as used and it won’t be possible to catch up for that class.
To buy your courses you need to click on the book button, and select the course you want in the category “POLE COURSES” for pole dance classes, and in the category “SPECIALTY COURSES” for exotic pole, pole choreo, aerial hoop, aerial silks and flexibility courses.
Buying a course does not book your classes ! Once you have done that, you need to book all your classes for the term. (Does not apply to Exotic courses and pole choreo courses
It is highly recommended to book your classes directly once you bought your course. That will secure your spot for the whole term, and allow drop-in students to know if there is a spot available when they want to join a class.
If you haven’t booked your spot, someone else may take your spot !
It is possible to swap your weekly class if you cancel your booking on time ! Remember that you need to cancel your class 8h before the class, otherwise it will be considered as used.
If you have cancelled it on time, you can always use that specific class the following week, if there are spots available.
Otherwise, you can swap it to 2 casual classes instead.
If this is your first pole dance class ever, welcome !
In this class you will try to climb the pole, try beginner tricks and have the opportunity to ask all kinds of questions!
If you like the class and want to start train at a beginner level, you are ready to book level 1 !
For the class you need to :
- Bring a towel for drying your skin off the sweat
- Wear short shorts and a sports bra ( or tank top). Pole trainings require to grip with our own skin. A legging will not allow you to grip and the training will be impossible ! If you don’t have any shorts, you can always wear a bikini, it works too !
- Bring a bottle of water because pole training can be challenging !
And the most important rule : NO MOISTURIZING CREAM on the day you have your class. Although your skin needs to be hydrated, it is better to do it the day before, because cream will make you slide on the pole and it can be frustrating.

Pole dance is a type of performing art and athletic activity that entails acrobats and dancers circling a vertical pole. It combines dance, acrobatics, and gymnastics elements to create a visually stunning and physically demanding performance on a static or spinning pole.
Pole dance’s origins are unknown, with various theories pointing to influences from ancient Chinese pole climbing, Indian mallakhamb, and nineteenth-century circuses. Pole dancing as a form of performance and fitness first emerged in Canada and the United States in the 1980s and 1990s, and it has since spread globally.
Pole dance has faced controversy and stigma, particularly due to its association with strip clubs and sexually suggestive performances. However, in recent years, pole dance has gained recognition as a legitimate form of fitness and performance art, with many athletes and performers using pole dance to showcase their strength, flexibility, and creativity.
Pole dance has evolved to include a wide range of styles and techniques, such as acrobatics, contemporary dance, and traditional styles such as classical pole and pole theater.
Pole dancing can give you a full-body workout by combining strength training, cardio, and flexibility. It works a variety of muscle groups, including the arms, abs, legs, and glutes, and it can improve coordination and balance. However, as with any physical activity, practicing pole dance safely and under proper supervision is essential, especially if you are new to it or have pre-existing health conditions.
Pole dancing is safe if precautions and techniques are taken. However, as with any physical exercise, there is a risk of injury if proper safety precautions are ignored. Pole dancing can be an enjoyable and safe physical activity if proper safety procedures and technique are taken.

Here at Arielpole studio, we use either static or spinning poles.
Static poles are fixed, non – rotating poles. This is often ideal for tricks that require a more stable platform, such as poses and holds as well as are used in different kind of choreography for example low flow, exotic pole, pole choreo and more.
Spinning poles are often used in acrobatic pole styles, where dynamic movements and aerial tricks are performed while the pole is in motion. Spinning poles can add an extra level of difficulty and challenge to pole dance, as the dancer must control their movements and balance while the pole is rotating.
Our instructors combines both when you are training in level 1, 2, 3, 4.
You can also combine both static and spinning poles in your training during our Open Pole hours.
We use X-Pole brand poles.
X-Pole does not have an official weight limit. We have set it up at 3,40 meters in heights and have had 2 dancers (around 115 kg) on a single X-Pert and it has been completely secure!
Thickness is 45mm.

DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY TRICK THAT YOU DON’T FEEL SAFE WITH OR NEVER ATTEMPTED !!
USE SAFETY MATS FOR UPSIDE DOWN MOVES YOU NEED TO IMPROVE !
As with any physical activity, there are safety considerations that should be taken into account to minimize the risk of injury. Some of the most important safety considerations for pole dance include:
- Supervision by a qualified instructor: A qualified instructor can provide guidance on proper technique, offer modifications for individuals with injuries or limitations and provide feedback on
progress and safety.
- Proper warm-up: Before starting any pole dance routine, it is important to warm up properly to prevent injury. This may include stretching exercises, light cardio, and other warm-up activities specific to pole dance.
- Wear appropriate clothing: Loose or baggy clothing can get caught on the pole and create a safety hazard, so it is important to wear form-fitting clothing that covers the skin and does not impede movement.
- Use of appropriate grip aids: Certain grip aids, such as grip lotions or chalk, can help reduce the risk of slipping on the pole. However, it is important to use them correctly and not rely solely
on these products to maintain grip on the pole.
By following these safety considerations, you can reduce the risk of injury and enjoy the physical and mental benefits that this sport has to offer.
