Covid 19 Terms & Conditions

Cancelations /rescheduling of classes.

Due to Covid 19 spaces in class are super limited, we are operating on 50 percent less capacity in class than normal. Because of this we have had to adopt a very strict cancelation and rescheduling policy. We no longer have the Luxury of easily being able to reschedule classes if you can’t make it.  No refunds under any circumstances can be given. We must have a min of 48 hours notice if you need to reschedule a class. This will Also be subject to class availability.
It goes without saying if you have symptoms please let us know and refer to gov website for advice. Please do not attend class if you have Covid symptoms. we would ask you get a test for Covid 19 and let us know how you are doing.
If you test positive for Covid and are able to show us positive results I can hold your package for you until you return from your 10 day isolation period. sorry we cannot reschedule any classes without the proper 48 hour notice period however, so please be aware of this.

Frequently asked questions

  1. What age do you need to be to join a class?

    All our classes are over 16s only, we have no upper age limit

  2. When do classes run?

    We run flexible mixed ability classes 7 days a week. as well as specialised one to one classes, all our class times and prices can be found on each class page.

  3. Do I need to be fit to do pole dancing?

    No! Pole fitness is a great way to GET fit and lose weight. If you have some degree of fitness you may find it slightly easier, but this is not necessary.

  4. What should I wear to class?

    You NEED to have bare legs and arms to grip the pole, so shorts and a short sleeved top or t-shirt are ideal. Leggings or jogging bottoms will have you sliding all over the place. You can go barefoot or heels. Heels really work your calf muscles out so there is a benefit to wearing them in class. No jewellery permitted in class!

  5. Can I wear lotion or fake tan before class?

    NO! Applying moisturiser or fake tan on the day of your class will cause your skin to be slippy on the pole and this can be dangerous. Try to apply it a few days before class if you must.

  6. Can men join?

    YES!! At Twirl N Tone, we believe that pole is for everyone regardless of gender.

  7. How many people are in a class?

    We have a maximum limit of 18 people per class. However, sometimes you may find there are 8 or 10 people depending who can make it that night. We never have any more than 2 students per pole; sometimes we have less so there is plenty of pole time for everyone.

  8. Will I be sore after my first class?

    Yes, you should expect some muscle pain after your first lesson. You will not realise it at the time but most of your body’s muscles will be worked out. You will probably work out muscles you never knew you had! After a few weeks, your body should become used to it and it will be less painful for you. However, as you progress from beginner to intermediate and so on you may experience new muscular pain as you will be doing more difficult moves. (Please note stretching is a must before our classes to avoid injury, your instructor will take you through this.)

  9. I have bruises from pole class is this normal?

    Yes! A lot of pole work involves skin friction and pressure on certain body parts. Many beginners tend to hold the pole tightly in due to lack of strength or fear of letting go and this causes bruising. As you become more confident and stronger you will have less bruising. Arnica gel is a godsend for the regular poler and will help your bruises heal fast!

  10. How long should it take me to accomplish a level?

    Everyone is different. Some students take around 4 weeks to become confident with a group of pole moves, for others it can take months. You may progress faster if you come to class regularly. The important thing is not to feel bad if you can’t get a move right away we have all been there. Plenty of practice is important and not rushing yourself too much. Trying moves before you are ready can result in injury. Your instructor will be able to tell when you are ready to move on to another level.

  11. I’ve never done pole before, can I join?

    Yes, if it wasn’t for beginners then we would have no experts. No experience is required to start, you will be placed with other beginners within the class and have an instructor dedicated to teaching you your first steps around the pole.

  12. Is there parking nearby?

    yes, our studio has on street parking, free after 6pm, and a large car park across the street from the entrance.
