What classes can I attend?
Before you can attend our Self Practice, Tuesday Pole Choreo or Level 2 sessions, we ask that you first complete a Level 1 Pole Fitness course (either with us or elsewhere). This is to ensure that you are familiar with the fundamentals before we try and build upon them, to help you progress safely.
However, our Level 1 course, plus the Intro to Pole Dance, Mixed Ability 1-3, Daytime Fayetime and Mum & Little One classes are open to all.
Pole Fitness for Complete Beginners
If you are brand new to pole, our Level 1 Pole Fitness class now runs as a 6 week course and is priced at £70
All other classes are available to book with one of the following options:
1. A recurring monthly membership
2. A class pack
3. A single session registration

Level 1 Pole Fitness
During our 6 week course, you will be introduced to a range of basic grips and spins, as well as climbing and sitting. You will be guided by your instructor on how to perform these moves with correct form and posture in order to help prevent injuries. You will work on some pretty shapes and will begin to connect the moves you have learned into short sequences. On completion of the course you will receive a certificate of achievement and can move onto our other classes!
Level 2 Pole Fitness
Pre-requisites: You must have completed a Level 1 course, either with us or elsewhere
During our Level 2 classes, you will build upon the skills you learnt during the Level 1 course, working on some conditioning each week to develop your strength and grip. Your instructor will teach you some new poses and some longer spin sequences and will start preparing you to safely invert (go upside down). You will soon be taking things up the pole and starting to reach for the stars!
Level 3 & 4 Pole Fitness
Pre-requisites: You must be able to comfortably invert and perform skills such as leg hangs, laybacks and preps for arms only moves
During our Level 3 classes, you will be taught to build longer sequences with the moves you have learnt in your Level 2 classes. You will now be comfortable upside down and will be ready to work towards arms-only moves. You will also start to look at some more dynamic movements. Moves will have more difficult entries and exits and will require a higher degree of strength/flexibility. There will always be a shiny new move you’re wanting to nail!
Intro to Pole dance
Are you wanting to explore the sexy, sensual side of pole? Perhaps you’re completely new to pole, but not interested in Pole Fitness? Or maybe you’ve been poling a while but want to cover some dance basics before joining the Pole Choreo course?
This class will introduce you to some basic heels and floorwork techniques, breaking everything down into its components to help you understand the mechanics of the movements. Sessions may focus on ways of moving around the pole, on transitioning from the pole to the floor, from the floor to standing, or on basework.
You will also combine some of the elements you have learnt over the weeks into a mini-routine, giving you a taste of performing to music in preparation for joining the Pole Choreo class.
While there will be information for those wearing stripper heels on how to use these effectively, heels are not compulsory and you are welcome to attend barefoot or in dance shoes if you’re not sure yet whether poling in heels is for you.
(If you would like advice on suitable heels to purchase for these lessons, please don’t be afraid to ask!)
Pole Choreo (Low Heels)
Pre-requisites: We ask that you have completed our Level 1 Pole Fitness course and/or a series of Intro to Pole Dance classes as a minimum for this class, as you will need to feel comfortable gripping the pole and performing some basic spins.
Want to feel sassy, empowered and a bit sexy? This is the class for you!
After a warm up, we will learn some heels* and floorwork techniques, focusing on various elements such as muscle isolation and the use of our platforms. Each week we will learn approx. 30 secs – 1 minute of new low flow pole and floorwork choreography until we have our finished dance.
This class will not involve inverted moves in heels – please see our ‘High Heels’ class for that!
Don’t worry if you miss a week – your class buddies will help you catch up. A great class for building confidence and having a good giggle.
*Heels are not compulsory! You are very welcome to attend barefoot or in dance shoes, but the heels might just draw you in after a while!
Pre-requisites: Suitable for Level 2 and above
Have you enjoyed attending our lyrical pole workshops? Do you love moving to music, but prefer to flow without the heels? At last, we have a weekly dance class just for you!
Primarily led by our queen of barefoot flow Kate, this class will work on seamless spin transitions, floaty spinny pole sequences and beautiful longer barefoot choreography routines.
Attend weekly to get the most out of this class. Please bring leggings and shorts to allow for safe movement both on the floor and up the pole. Socks and kneepads are recommended.
Do you work shifts? Don’t have childcare in the evenings to make it to our evening sessions?
We’ve got a daytime pole flow class just for you
Faye is our resident wavy leg, slink queen and in this daytime dance class you can expect to learn how to tap into your sensual, sexy side.
The class will introduce you to some basic heels and floorwork techniques, breaking everything down into its components to help you understand the mechanics of the movements. Sessions may focus on wavy leg or body roll muscle isolations, ways of moving around the pole, on transitioning from the pole to the floor, from the floor to standing, or on basework. Faye will also create short sequences to flow to together with music.
NB: While there will be information for those wearing stripper heels on how to use these effectively, heels are not compulsory and you are welcome to attend barefoot or in dance shoes if you’re not sure yet whether poling in heels is for you and are just wanting to explore the sensual side of pole.
Pre-requisites: See below.
Have you been attending our Tuesday Pole Choreo class for a while? In Level 2 or above? Feeling really comfortable in both your heels and your inversions? It’s time to take your heels up the pole with our new class: ‘High Heels’
Primarily led by our super slinky Faye and sassy Sam, in this class you will learn how to climb and invert safely in your heels and perform heels combinations that take you up and down the pole as well as at ground level!
Attend weekly to get the most out of this class. Please bring leggings and shorts to allow for safe movement both on the floor and up the pole. Kneepads recommended.
Mixed Ability Pole L1-3
Pre-Requisites – None
This class is for those of you who struggle to make it to our evening sessions, or to make the same slot each week. And for those wanting to start their weekend off the right way!
This class will run with a prescribed warm-up and cool-down, but will have differentiated challenges for the varying abilities within the group rather than whole class activities.
Mum & Little One Pole
Wish you could make it to pole, but tied up looking after your little ones? This class is for you.
This is a mixed-ability class that allows you to pole alongside your pre-schooler!
There will be a warm-up, conditioning, some taught moves and short combos, but the class will have a slightly slower pace and follow a loser structure than usual, allowing everyone to tend to their little ones as needed (instructor Sophie will also have her baby with her).
If your child is keen to have a go too and you are happy to involve them, they are welcome to join you on the pole 🙂
Please note that as a variety of ages are expected, you will need to provide your own safe sleep place (eg car seat/pram), toys, snacks and baby changing supplies as relevant.
Toddlers are welcome, but the studio is not child-proofed and you remain responsible for your child at all times.
Please do not bring your child to class if they are unwell.
Our Self Practice sessions are your chance to practice without the structure of a standard lesson. It’s a time when you can use the space to train moves that you have already been taught, practice combos, stretch, condition or choreograph a routine. We’ll be there to help where you need it, but there will be no prescribed warm-up, taught moves or cool-down and you must comply with our Self Practice Agreement.
A private session can be a great way of easing in gently if you’ve never tried pole before and you struggle with anxiety or larger group settings.
They can be equally beneficial if you feel you’ve reached a bit of a plateau in your training and are needing a boost, if you’ve got a specific area of training that needs some special attention, or if you’ve got a performance coming up and need help building a routine. A pack of privates also makes a great gift and you can purchase a voucher for these within the Store section of TeamUp!
Scared of coming to a group class on your own?
Got a friend or two who might be interested in coming along with you?
Maybe you’ve attended our group classes, but you and your classmates want to get some extra sessions booked in to really nail that nemesis move? A small group private could be ideal.
Please follow the instructions within TeamUp for requesting a slot and booking.
