Defining your journey

With any Member Package giving you the freedom to attend all our locations, you will always find a range of classes that meet you where you’re at. We have Technique Levels, Exploration Levels and Open Fitness options you will see across our timetables. Please visit our Level Progressions and Technique Prerequisites for full details.

All first time attendees are eligible for a free assessment class. If you have had prior pole experience, just visit our Prerequisites page here to find out how. If you have never done pole before, check out our free trial offer!

Ideally, to become a well rounded pole dancer it is important to try different styles of classes and instructors. It is highly encouraged to maintain a weekly attendance to a Technique Level course each term, with a speciality routine or speciality tricks class you attend on a regularly basis. Additionally, Open Fitness classes done regularly assists with maintaining a balanced body, by building stamina and increasing mobility. This is the secret to hit those higher Technique Levels and preparing you for even bigger challenges!

This feature provides you with an automatic payment and alert system for when a spot opens up in a full session.

When you have any Active Sessions available during the Scheduling Window, your Sydney Pole Account will enable the Waitlist feature on sessions at full capacity. This allows you to notify our MindBody system that you agree to pay for the session if a spot becomes available for you. Essentially, you can hold the next opening in reserve for yourself to be notified.

When a spot opens up, you will receive an SMS notification to alert you to respond Y or N. It assumes your attendance if no response is provided. The system will always prioritise a student who replies over the original queue order of the waitlist. It’s important to reply Y or N to the SMS to avoid losing your spot or receiving a Late Cancel fee.

For more details, please see our Waitlist Reservation policy.

Can’t make a class or need to change your schedule? You can easily cancel your reservations through your Sydney Pole Account.

An Early Cancel means you cancelled the session 6 hours or more before the start time of the reservation. In this instance, the session will return to the Credit Allocation that paid for it, ready to be used again if it has not expired.

A Late Cancel means you cancelled within the 6 hour window before the start time of the reservation. In this instance, the session will not be returned to your account at all. Additionally, not attending your reserved session will also result in forfeiting that session.
