What clothes should I wear?
Pole dance requires skin contact, so shorts with little to no inseam is a must for most pole classes (think bikini bottoms). We have a wide assortment of Pole and Dance clothes in our boutique available for purchase. Tank tops are cool for beginner level classes, bra that keeps everything in place is needed for higher level classes.
Workout clothes are appropriate for Sensual, Lap, and our dance workout classes, but we always encourage you to wear something that makes you feel good, that you can move in, and always dress to your comfort level.
Please note: No nudity is allowed. No Lotion is allowed on any body parts that will make contact with the pole.
What shoes should I wear?
All of our Pole classes (and our Sensual and Lap dance classes) utilize Pole dancing shoes. They are not mandatory, but we highly urge all of our students wear Pole dancing shoes, they take practice and if you start practicing with them from day one you'll become a better dancer for it. Our fast paced dance classes are bare foot.
Your first time at Sedusa we lend you a pair of shoes, after that you will need to provide your own. We have a boutique where you can buy a pair, or we can special order you shoes if needed. You may also rent a pair of shoes from us for $10. Outside shoes are not allowed on the studio floors for preservation and protection of our bodies. Rocks, dirt, and debris can track in, scratching the floors up and also our skin while we do floorwork. If you want to wear shoes, make sure that they have not been worn outside and get approval from the instructor.
What about jewelry?
As for jewelry, anything on the hands and arms are not allowed. This will scratch up the poles, which then can leave rough edges for our skin to get cut on. Furthermore, your jewelry will become damaged from the contact on the pole. Sedusa Studios is not responsible for lost or damaged property. So to save all of us the trouble, please remember to remove all jewelry!
What are the Class Sizes?
Class sizes are small where you will experience support, camaraderie and no judgment!
Are the classes Co-Ed?
Because of the intimate nature of most of our classes, Sedusa is a Women/Female-identifying only environment.
I’m a Transgender individual, can I take classes at Sedusa?
Yes! If you live your life as a women/female and identify as a women/female you are more than welcome to come and expolore your feminine energy in a beautiful, sensual atmosphere.
Do I need to be in shape before taking classes?
Please, come as you are! No prior experience is necessary. We work with all body types and tailor our instruction to your individual needs.
How do I advance to the next level of classes?
Advancement in classes is up to each individual and with Sedusa instructor approval. As you progress, you can move at your own pace, or stay at a level where you feel comfortable and still challenged. There is no pressure at Sedusa Studios. We are here for you! We have created a Level Up checklist, click here to check it out!
Which class should I start out with?
This really depends on what you’re looking for in a class experience! The Classes that are suitable for beginners will say START HERE!! in the Class Description! We always recommend taking our Core Classes, Sexy Pole or Pole Fit L1. We catagorize our classes into two groups; Technique, these classes focus on building body awareness, strength and grace! You’ll receive step by step instruction on how to build quality movement! Great for those wanting to build clean fluid technique, and who want a physical and mental challenge! And Connection, these classes focus on getting in touch with your body, and feel good movement that isn’t driven by technique. Great for those who either have good body awareness or who want to just get out of their head and connect to their body!
If I sign up for a class and can't make it what should I do?
There are no refunds once a Sedusa Studios Dance Series has started. Make up classes may be arranged within your series dates if it is the same dance and class level, and if there is room in the class. Make-ups require approval from the studio owner. No make up classes are allowed once your dance series has ended.
For Drop-in classes, please give 24 hours notice if you cannot make your class so we can put someone else in your spot. If you notify us at least 24 hours before your scheduled Drop-in class we will let you put the cost towards another Drop-in class. Refunds are not issued for notice less than 48 hours or no-shows.
Can I take Pictures/Videos?
To preserve the intimate nature of Sedusa, Videos are Prohibited during classes. We strive to keep Sedusa Dance Studio a safe environment for women to express themselves freely through dance, many women who dance with us, wether for professional or personal reasons, don't want it to get out to the public, we need to respect everyone’s right to privacy during class time.
If you are practicing in the private room you may take photos and videos. If you share a pic or video please tag the studio (@sedusastudio on IG) and give credit for choreography (if using choreo. you learned in class). We might even share your stuff on our social media page ;)
