DO YOU OFFER EXOTIC DANCE CLASSES WITHOUT THE POLE?
Yes! 50% of the classes we offer are non-pole classes. We truly believe that sensual dance is a challenging but fun workout on its own. We have many students who only take our sensual dance classes.
DO I HAVE TO BE A GOOD DANCER TO TAKE CLASSES?
Absolutely not! We rarely teach count based choreography. For our dance classes we use "loose choreography" which allows women to dance in a way that suits them. This stays true to the authentic exotic dance style of movement. 99% of our student base are non experienced dancers. We also offer pole tricks based classes and fitness/strength training classes as well. We have something for everyone!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO CLASSES?
For pole classes please wear a form fitting top/sports bra and shorts. Skin is important for sticking to the pole for certain moves. For any non-pole classes please wear a form fitting top and capris or leggings . Knee pads are encouraged for some classes. Please make sure to read the description of the class on the class calendar to verify clothing suggestions.
WHAT SHOULD I NOT WEAR TO POLE DANCING CLASSES?
It is VERY important that you do not apply moisturizer, lotion, fake tan, or oil to your skin on the day of the class. They can transfer to the pole, and make it dangerous for you, and anyone else using the same pole. Please remove all rings, watches and bracelets before using the pole. Please make sure to read the description of the class on the class calendar to verify clothing suggestions.
I HAVE NO UPPER BODY STRENGTH. SHOULD I TRY POLE DANCING?
Many students come to their first lesson thinking they have weak arms. In your first lesson you'll be given some basic strengthening exercises to help with this, but the best thing you can do to improve your upper body strength is Pole Dancing! Just by trying the moves, you'll be training those muscles up - you'll notice an improvement in just a matter of weeks! Or you can try many of our non-pole classes to build up strength that way. The choice is yours!
I'M REALLY NERVOUS ABOUT ATTENDING MY FIRST CLASS!
It's normal to be nervous, but there's really no need to be. Everyone had to be a beginner at some point! Everyone in the class is there for the same reason …to dance, workout, and have fun!
CAN I COME AND WATCH A CLASS BEFORE I BOOK?
No. Vixen Academy does not allow spectators in the weekly classes. This is for the comfort of the current students. Try to sign up for an intro pole class, with a friend! We offer this class usually every Monday . But any drop in class is a great place to start. No time like the present!
I AM PREGNANT, CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE?
You may only participate with written authorization from your doctor. Up to 4 months only.
