Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much are classes?
A: We have several class types:
- Weekly classes: $25
- Specialty classes: $25
- Intro to Pole and Zensual Dance: $15
- Workshops: $40 to $150
- Memberships and Class Packs are also available.
Q: What is the difference between Weekly Classes, Specialty Classes and Workshops?
A: We have 3 types of classes.
- Weekly Classes are recurring classes scheduled every week that range from 45 to 90 minutes. Weekly Classes are free to all Zensual Academy Members.
- Specialty Classes are seasonal classes and are a little funky, a little crazy, and a lot of fun. Specialty Classes are free to Elite Members.
- Workshops are how-to lessons. Workshops are slower-paced as learning is the primary focus. The PERFECT place to start!
Q: How many women are in each class?
A: Each class is limited to a set number of participants to allow maximum potential while meeting the needs of our clients. Most pole classes allow two per pole.
- Pole Classes: 8-12
- Dance Classes: 15-20
- Workshops: 10-25
Private classes may be scheduled if you have more than 6 girlfriends who want to attend class together.
Q: How do I register for classes?
A: With ease, that’s how.
Q: What should I bring to class?
A: While it depends on the class, this list is a good start. Check individual class descriptions for more details.
- Water bottle
- High heels (Heels are never required, but you are always welcome to bring them to any class!)
- Knee pads (Used mostly in non-pole classes)
- Leg warmers (It’s always fun to “80s” out)
Q: What do I wear to class?
A: Pole classes and Dance classes require slightly different attire. Either way, BE COMFORTABLE!
Anytime you’re working the pole (oh, come on we had to say that at least once), you’re going to need…
- Shorts – The shorter the better. Bare legs help you grip the pole.
- A t-shirt or tank top.
- NO lotion or body oils – You’ll slip off the pole.
- NO rings, bracelets or watches – The metal on metal WILL damage your jewelry.
- High Heels are optional, but beginner’s tend to start with bare feet.
Anytime you’re just working it in a general dance class, you’ll need…
- Workout pants that cover your knees.
- A t-shirt or tank top.
- High heels are optional.
- Knee pads – You can find these at Wal-Mart, Target or any sporting goods store.

- We offer classes specifically designed for beginners with no prior experience.

Q: Will I be sore or bruised after class?
A: Yes! But it’s normal! Here are a few helpful tips:
- Don’t over do it in class….listen to your body! Push yourself past your comfort zone but don’t fall off the cliff!
- Warm up before class. We always go through a warm up in class, but if you still feel tight, take a moment to stretch on your own.
- Cool-down and stretch after class. Even stretching the next day will help soothe sore muscles.
- Warm baths are great for relieving muscles fatigue (Epsom salt in your bath is awesome after a particularly hard workout).
- Light massage can help relax tight muscles and relieve pain.
- If you experience sharp or recurring pain, check it out with your doctor to be sure there isn’t something else going on.
