Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to know before I take my first pole class?
Pole should be fun! Don’t worry about nailing every move or spin in your first class, we all have to start from scratch. Don’t wear any lotion the day of your pole class, it will cause you to slip! Rings or anything that will scratch the pole are not allowed to be worn in class.
Can I just watch?
We don't allow spectators for any of our classes to protect the privacy of our students. If you are nervous about taking your first class, we have all been there! We are here to support and encourage you so just give it a try!
How do I sign up?
Are Classes Co-Ed?
Our classes and studio are ladies-only for the privacy and safety of our students. We strive to create a safe environment for women to work out without stress or judgment.
What do I wear?
In beginner pole classes, you will learn that skin contact with the pole is necessary for safety. We recommend to start out with athletic shorts and a tank top. For our lyra and Fly Gym classes, yoga leggings are recommended.
Can I wear heels?
Intro/Beginner Pole classes are done in bare feet. You are welcome to wear heels that are made specifically for pole dancing (Pleasers, Ellie, etc) to Sexy Flow, Floor Work, and any intermediate or advanced pole class.
Am I strong enough to do pole?
Yes, in fact, pole classes will make you stronger! Whether you have never worked out before or you are a pro athlete, everyone starts at the same level in their pole journey. Our classes are designed so you will progress and get stronger at your own pace.
I am pretty strong, do I have to start in the beginner class?
Yes! Pole is a very unique exercise and to do it safely, everyone has to learn to train their muscles specifically for pole.
Is it safe?
Our pole instructors are trained to keep you safe. There is no going upside down in Intro/Beginner pole classes. As you progress in level you will learn more advanced moves. You will not be asked to perform any moves that you are not mentally or physically prepared for.
Do the poles have a weight limit?
Our pole equipment is guaranteed by the manufacturer to support up to 225 pounds. No one will be asked for their weight and we do our best to ensure that all students have a positive and safe learning experience. However, please note, that if you knowingly utilize our equipment above the maximum load the poles are manufactured to bear, you assume any and all risk of danger to yourself and financial obligation if you damage equipment in any way.

You must be at least 16 (with a parent/guardian signature) to take classes at The Diva Dive.
Do I have to prepay to sign up?
Vagaro does not require you to prepay when you sign up. When you “checkout” it will reserve your spot and you can pay after your class.
