Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve never done pole before, where should I start?

 Level I Pole is our most beginner class, this class teaches basic moves and introduces you to the pole. This class is required to take our other courses and will build the foundation for doing more advanced tricks. The class will focus on the basics such as moving with the pole, hand placement, poses and will offer and introduction to spins. Level I is offered as a session based class, and as casual drop in class. To view class times, please see our monthly session and casuals schedule.d

You can also choose to book a private pole party or private pole lesson with a group of your friends. Pole parties cover all the basics and get you familiar with the pole. See our Pole Parties page for more information about parties and how to book.

I would feel more comfortable in a class with people I know, can I schedule a private class with my friends?

You are always welcome to book a private pole class! Private classes typically include up to four people, so get your friends together and come out to give it a try. See our Parties page for more details. Please email us if you have any questions about booking a private class.

I haven’t been to the gym in a while, should I start working out before taking a pole class?

No need to hit the gym first! Pole fitness builds strength, endurance, flexibility and technique in every class. It’s a safe, fun and judgement free alternative to the gym.

Vertika also offers off the pole conditioning classes that can help supplement your pole classes such as Pole-ates and stretch. For all of our classes, check out our classes page.

What should I wear to class?

For our Level I class, you may wear leggings, but we suggest wearing shorts and a tank top or sports bra for all Level II and higher classes. You are welcome to bring your favourite pair of heels to all Pole Choreography classes.

For all off the pole classes, you may wear leggings, sweaters, leg warmers, or anything you are comfortable working out in. If you have any further questions regarding attire, please feel free to email us!
