We are a fairly new society that offers pole and hoop classes. Pole and hoop is an amazing way to get fit and healthy and make new friends! Pole fitness is a more unconventional way to get fit and we believe it's empowering for everyone. Classes are offered for beginners all the way to advanced levels so everyone is welcome to try!
We compete in the IUPDC (Inter-University Pole Dancing Competiton) in beginner, intermediate, advanced and group competitions - training will be provided for the IUPDC.
Classes are held in the Hutton Hub upstairs on College Lane every Wednesday.
Flexibility Flow - 2:30-3:30
Beginners Pole - 3:30-4:30
All Ability Pole - 4:30-5:30
Please Note: Wednesday 16th October 2019 our classes will run from 2:15 till 3:15. 3:15-4:15 and 4:15 till 5:15.

I've never done Pole or Hoop Classes before, what should I wear? - We recommend wearing a short tee, shorts. Do not moisturise or fake tan before pole class as you are more likely to slip off the pole and you may struggle a bit. Hoop classes we recommend to cover skin such as leggings.
Beginners or Mixed Ability? - Our beginner class works through basic pole moves and techniques and is perfect for those just starting out or coming back to pole after a bit of a break. All mixed ability class we recommend for those with a bit more experience. This class is great for all ability levels (beginners too!) as our instructor will teach moves with variations to fit everyone, and for those who are more capable, this is your chance to work on more advanced tricks!
How much does membership cost? - Membership cost £12 for students and non-students £18 and this year we offer a semester only membership for £8. Membership can be purchased on the right-hand side.
What's the price per class? - Pole classes and Flexibility Flow sessions are both £3.50 per session during taster week, and £4.50 during the semester as we now have to charge VAT. This is a great deal compared to the £10 per session the studio usually charges. Lollipop lyra Classes are TBA.
Do you hold any socials, I would like to make new friends? - We are holding socials throughout the year with themes, drinking and non-drinking and society outings. There will be a social for everybody. Socials will be announced via Facebook.
*Please note: You should arrive 5 mins before the start time of your class. If you miss the warm-up you will not be allowed to take part and this will not be refundable.*
