Embarking on your pole journey with TPR is a rewarding, fulfilling and supported one! Why? Because our programs are carefully designed to ensure you succeed. Through our 8 and 4-Week Courses, you will experience the endorphin rush, the community spirit and the accountability to keep you wanting to come back for more.

So what happens in our 8 and 4-Week Courses, you ask? We’ve got the goods here, so that you know what to look forward to, what events to mark in your calendars, and when you can start enrolling for your next course. Both cover the same level and amount of tricks, with the 4-Week course being more intensive.

Note: The 4-Week Course purely focusses on tricks, whilst the 8-Week Course incorporates both tricks and dance. It is compulsory for 4-Week Course students to complete an 8-Week Course prior to moving to a higher level, so that they can be comfortable with the slinky, flowy movement required for performing.

8-Week Course


It’s all happening! You’re now clocking in at the studios for your first classes! Learning the basics of pole and what-nots. You get the jitters, but surprise yourself with what you’re capable of once you step through the door. You bond with our pole mates, you get included in Whatsapp group chats. You may wake up sore the next day, but you’re always looking forward to the next.

Dressing up is half the fun! So in your first week, familiarise yourself with o
ur pole essentials list. and load up your goodie bag. 


You’ve probably warmed up the studio this week, have made new friends and are getting used to adding pole dancing to our daily routine. You’ve probably learned to climb the pole at and your pole bag is now packed with the right essentials.

The new timetable is up! Oooh exciting but wait, how the eff did time fly so fast? Yeah hun, it feels just like yesterday when you started your first pole class but now you’re half way through your course.

This week check the
TPR Community Page for your upcoming schedule. If you think you would love to repeat the same course (time and date), now is the time to book for the next term. But if you wanna move up to the next level, you gotta wait it out until grading week. More on that in week 7!


It’s crunch time and all that fun jazz!
You master your routines, make sure you stay consistent and even try as many dance classes as you can! By this time, your instructors will encourage you and build up your excitement to perform at the End-of-Term Performance Night! If you’re keen, kudos! If you’re a little shy, at least come and cheer along!


The next term’s timetable is now available for pre-registration! If you’re wanting to move up to a level, now is the perfect time to inform your Studio Managers about your preferred schedule and pre-register a spot. Some courses book out hell fast, so make sure you get to have your name on the waitlist.


You’ve made it to grading week! You’ve heard about grading through the grapevine but you’re not entirely sure what it is. Grading is your opportunity to show instructors everything you’ve learnt throughout your course, so that you can advance to the next level. Exciting! This is a friendly, interactive, group session where your instructor will ask you to perform tricks and techniques taught throughout the term.

There’s no need for nerves here – if you pass, congratulations on moving up to the next level! If you have tricks to polish, that’s totally fine as well. You can simply do the course again, until you’re confident to move on up.
Remember that everyone’s pole journey is unique, so go at your own pace and keep counting your wins.



Aaaaaannnddd just like that, you’re officially a pole superstar. You’ve developed incredible skills that few people could only imagine doing in a lifetime. Your confidence, flexibility, fitness, friendship groups and overall zest for life have transformed. But the most exciting part, is that you’re only at the beginning!

No other way to celebrate than to perform or support our fellow Tribe members at End-of-Term Performance Night. Showcased in front of small audiences, these happen at each studio and give students the opportunity to experience their first on-stage debuts. Costumes, make up, and mind-blowing performances are guaranteed!

4-Week Course

The 4-Week course is short but it’s definitely sweet, that’s for sure! Unlike its 8-week big sister, the 4-week program is quite intensive. You’ll still build your strength, flexibility and confidence, that’s for sure! But you’ll focus mainly on climbing the pole and tricks, truly an exciting and challenging prequel we’re certain you’re ready to conquer.


Just like in the 8-Week Course, this is the week when you get to meet your lovely instructors, pole buddies and of course your quirky Studio Managers. Whatsapp group chats will be popping on your phone giving you updates on your courses. Make sure you have your pole bag packed with the right equipment so you look and feel the part! 


You survived your first class, woohoo! The shock has dissipated, now it’s time to build your momentum! By this week, registrations are now open for the next full term (your Studio Manager knows what’s up). So make sure you enrol asap before your preferred schedule gets booked out.

Pole jitters, who dat? By now you’ve probably already built your confidence and have felt the changes to your strength and flexibility. Crazy how your body can do so much more than you thought it could! Kudos babe, keep going. 


4 weeks of hardcore training is done! Congratulations on completing such an intensive experience, now its time to immerse yourself deeper into pole and move on to an 8-Week Beginner Course.

The 8-Week Beginner Course is where you will refine what you’ve done in the 4-Week Course, but incorporate dancing, so that you can have the opportunity to get on stage and move onto the next level. Make sure you’re enrolled via reception and ready to spin into next term!

If you’re ready to conquer confidence, and become the boldest version of you, make a visit to The Pole Room. Skills-based courses and classes are fun, relaxed and totally beginner-friendly. Even if you feel un-co, or have never set foot in a dance studio in your life, you’ll be in the hands of instructors who will work with you to become your best self.  Click here to get started!
