What to expect...
You can arrive up to 15 minutes before your party is scheduled to begin to set up-- decorate, lay out snacks/refreshments, etc. If you requested a table and/or an ice bucket for your party, we'll have it all set up for you (you just need to bring the ice). Please have the medical waivers completed, signed and collected to give to your instructor upon your arrival. Once all of your guests have arrived, you'll have 15 minutes to snack, catch up and settle in before the pole instruction portion of your party begins.
We will then start with a warm-up designed to get your muscles ready for the spinal articulations, hip swings, and chest rolls that exotic pole dancing is known for.
Then it’s time to slip on the stilettos and start the fun! Your certified pole instructor will teach you:
How to strut in stripper heels.
A variety of transitions and exotic pole moves.
Off-the-pole floorwork moves that you can practice at home.
A selection of beginner friendly pole spins.
A full-length beginner friendly pole dance routine!
We will wrap things up with a cool down of stretches followed by a group photo op!
You will have 15 minutes after your scheduled party (with any add-on time included) to clean up, change clothes, pack up your belongings and clean up. l
Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. Please take a moment to look over our policies below before booking a pole party.
Q: How do we schedule a pole party at Pole at Play?
A: To schedule a pole party, first email Pole at Play at email@example.com with the date and time you are wanting to reserve. If that time slot is available, we will send you a confirmation email. Complete the Pole Party Request Form and return it to Pole at Play in the form of an attachment to the above email address within 5 days of confirming your date/time. You can download the Hostess Packet with instructions and Pole party info here.
Q: How much does a pole party cost?
A: A 2-hour pole party for 11 guests or less (including host/hostess) is $375. If you have more than 11 guests, each additional guest pays $40 each.
Q: Are we allowed to bring snacks, drinks, alcohol?
A: You sure can! But with a few exceptions— avoid messy, sticky or greasy foods, or dishes that have temperature requirements for safe consumption. Food and drinks are not permitted in the pole dance floor area. You can reserve a refreshment table/s free of charge on the Pole Party Request Form.
If you will be serving alcohol, everyone in your party must be 21+ and you must select the alcohol add-on on your pole party request form so that we are able to get the proper permit. A $25 fee will be added to your party total to cover the permit.
Drinks must not contain more than 15% ABV so NO hard alcohol please. Wine, champagne, hard seltzer, cider, beer, etc. are fine. Please don’t drink before your party. Any guests who arrive intoxicated will not be allowed to participate and will not be eligible for a refund. And please arrange for a designated driver or an Uber. Friends don't let friends drive drunk!
Q: Can we come early to set up and/or decorate for our party?
A: Absolutely! You can arrive up to 15 minutes early to set up for your party and you will have 15 minutes after your party ends to clean up. If you need more time, you can add time on to your party on the Pole Party Request Form.
Q: We’re going to be going out after our party. Can we get ready at the studio?
A: If getting ready involves applying makeup, styling hair, or any other potentially time consuming primping rituals, we ask that you purchase add-on time to your party at a rate of $25 per 15 minutes. We have a green room at the studio with awesome lighting for doing your makeup.
Q: I don’t own any stripper shoes and neither does anyone in my group. Can we wear regular heels instead?
A: Street shoes/heels are not permitted in the studio. Stripper heels are designed for pole dancing and have several unique features that you won’t find in other heels. We have loaner heels at the studio sizes 5-11 available for students to borrow. Simply check the “heels” box on your Pole Party Request Form and email firstname.lastname@example.org 48 hours before your party begins to let us know how many of each size you will need. We cannot guarantee that we will have enough heels or the correct sizes for all of your guests but we’ll do our best to find something that will work. Stripper heels are not available in half sizes. If you are between sizes, size up.
Q: What’s the age limit?
A: 18-100+! Under 18 requires informed signed parental consent. Email email@example.com for a parental consent waiver. If there will be alcohol at your party, guests must be 21+.
Q: Are men allowed?
A: Pole at Play is an inclusive space that welcomes anyone who has a genuine desire to learn the art of exotic pole dancing, regardless of gender identity. Exotic pole is a hyper-feminine style of dance and therefore tends to attract individuals whose gender identity falls somewhere along the femme end of the spectrum. But just as femmes can benefit from participating in activities that have traditionally been considered masculine (like kickboxing, MMA, or weight lifting) so can non-binary and masculine individuals benefit from exploring their feminine side via exotic pole dancing.
Q: We want our pole party to be a surprise for the guest of honor. How can we make this happen?
A: We love surprise parties! And we’re great at keeping secrets🤫. To arrange for your party to be a surprise, check the “surprise party” box on the Pole Party Request Form. We will email you to make all the arrangements!
Q: My aunt Fannie won’t participate? Can she just watch?
A: In order to maintain a non-judgmental space in which everyone feels comfortable letting their guard down, exploring movement and making mistakes, we ask that all attendees participate to the extent of their abilities. If physical limitations prevent you from safely attempting any moves, your instructor will provide modifications and/or alternatives. All attendees are considered paying attendees.
Q: Where do we park?
A: Street parking is free all day on Saturdays. You can also park in the lot behind the American Legion Building.
Q: Can we take photos?
A: Yes! If the other attendees are ok with it and it’s not disruptive, snap away. Your instructor is more than happy to take group photos at the end of the party as well. Just let her know! If you would like a lot of photos, you can add time to your party exclusively for photos on your Pole Party Request Form. If you post any of your party photos to social media, don’t forget to tag @poleatplay! (Video recording of instruction is not permitted.)
Q: Can we request certain songs/music/artists/genres for our party?
A: You sure can! We use Spotify for our classes and parties. Feel free to create a playlist and make it public and we will play it for your party. Create a free account here: https://www.spotify.com/us/
Q: Should we tip our instructor?
A: That’s entirely up to you. If you had a great time and want to show your instructor some extra love, gratuity is always appreciated. But it’s not required or expected.
