What to Wear

You’ll need grip during your class so it’s best to have your legs and arms uncovered. We recommend wearing shorts during your first class. Lush Motion also recommends Abstract Pole Wear for comfortable and fashionable pole wear. Make sure to remove all jewellery before the start of your class, it could restrict your movement or lead to injury. It’s best not to apply any lotion before your first Pole Dance class, it will make it very difficult to have proper grip on the pole.

How to Prepare Mentally

It might be tempting to focus on how the class might be physically challenging. But, it can also be challenging mentally. There will be times where you’ll find yourself feeling frustrated. This stems from not being able to “perfect” a move. It’s important to remember: this happens to everyone. Perseverance is key to learning a new skill. This works in the exact same way for Pole Dance.

Embrace the Experience

It’s important to remember that you won’t get every move in your first Pole Dance class. You might ask yourself how the instructor makes it look so effortless and graceful. But, this takes a lot of practice and time. Remember to go easy on yourself (but don’t forget to point your toes!)
