This is for your own safety.
Health and Safety
Pole Dancing like all forms of physical exercise and activity, carries a risk of personal injury. If you have any previous injuries or ailments, we advise you not to take part in any Polepeople Class, unless you have permission from your doctor or health professional. Before taking part in any Polepeople class, all attendees are required to fill out a medical questionnaire and sign a disclaimer. The disclaimer is to confirm that you understand there is risk involved with pole dancing and that you have no physical conditions to prevent you taking part in a class. Polepeople and the venues we hire, take no responsibility for any accident occurring as a result of participation in any dance activity, directly or indirectly.
We do not recommend pole dancing if you are pregnant. Pregnant women are welcome to come to hen and birthday party classes to watch [and cheer!]. Please just let us know when booking the class, so we can make sure there are chairs in the studios. If you are booking on behalf of a friend or group, please check that all individuals are fit to participate.
You must correctly follow instructions given by Polepeople teachers at all times.
