BEGINNER COURSES STARTING SOON. BOOK NOW!

Outside Hours Access is Here!

Wish you could practice outside regular studio hours? Need extra time on the pole to prep for a performance? Perhaps you just feel like shooting content for socials?! There are countless reasons why we’re excited to launch our Outside Hours Access!

The Outside Hours Access grants all TPR High Flyer Students with access to use Mitcham’s dedicated room outside regular studio open hours. High Flyer Members from all TPR studios are welcome to make the most, included as part of the membership. With your own key, you’ll have access to a beautiful room featuring:

  • 8 poles and a mirrored wall
  • Bluetooth sound system
  • Fans and air conditioning
  • Controllable neon lights (great for the selfies!)
  • Cleaning and hygiene facilities
  • Access to crash mats for when you’re working those tricks
  • First aid kit and phone for emergencies
  • Security cameras for safety

Use the Outside Hours Access to improve your technique, piece together a routine, or even take more mirror selfies! A huge bonus if you’re running on a busy schedule, but want more time out in your day-to-day. If you are a High Flyer Member and want the VIP treatment, submit this form to start the process. 

FAQs

What can I do in the Outside Hours Access sessions? The floor is yours! The Outside Hours Access is treated as an unsupervised Practice Session (booked via the TPR App in 1-hour blocks), so you can do as you please to improve your pole repertoire. Dance, stretch, rehearse what you’ve done in class, and feel totally at home.

Can I access other rooms at the Mitcham Studio such as aerials and restrooms? At this stage, the Outside Access is restricted to the Mitcham Studio’s allocated room only. This means that toilets and other rooms will not be accessible. We will assess how we can accommodate this in the future.

I’m on a High Flyer Membership but want to invite other students to the Outside Hours Access. Am I able to do so? Outside Hours Access is strictly available for High Flyer Members only. High Flyer Members are able to book sessions at the same time as their fellow High Flyer Members, but no other persons may utilise the space at the time. This includes non-members, pets, or students.

Will there be multiple students using the space at the same time? The room may be booked by more than one student at a time. Everyone is expected to wave the TPR Tribe badge at all times – be friendly, welcoming, and respectful of each other’s privacy and space (especially if you’re filming).

Will I be taught how to use the sound system, lights, key fob, etc? Of course! Upon activating your Outside Hours Access, your Studio Manager will give you a complete induction on how to use the space. This includes general house keeping, practicing good hygiene, and safety/security features.

What times is Outside Hours Access accessible? The Outside Hours Access is open during the following times:

  • Monday-Thursday: 7am-4pm
  • Friday: CLOSED
  • Saturday: 7am-10am
  • Sunday: 7am-4pm

How to Make the Most of Your Pole Journey

Pole dancing – smooth, sexy, sensual and fierce! That’s what we see. But take a peek behind the curtains, you’d realise it’s not a walk in the park. It takes a lot of dedication and determination to get to the top (in its figurative and literal sense). 

So how do you make the most? Our secrets here…

Take everything one session at a time. Polers sure as hell didn’t wake up with superhuman powers! It takes months of practice to realise full range of motion and master even just one trick! Everyone starts out in an awkward, newly-birthed giraffe stage. But over time, they turn into a full grown graceful giraffe! It simply takes time and patience. So don’t get pressured if your hand springs look more like spring rolls to begin with – trust the process and stay consistent.

Set your own pace, run your own race. Sometimes we feel the pressure seeing our polemates nail a trick faster than we do, forgetting that we’re only in competition with ourselves. Another secret to getting the most of your pole journey is to not compare yourself to your buddy! Focus on yourself. If you failed today, try again tomorrow. Even flowers bloom on their own without competing with other flowers.

Show up! Like any other skill, you can’t step up if you don’t show up. Dedication and determination are keys to progression! Your strength, stamina, flexibility, heck even your 8-incher balancing skills develop with time. But they bid goodbye with idle times too and we don’t want that to happen, do we? Now go eat your veggies, book your class and see you on the floor, pronto! :-*

Why so serious? Give yourself a good laugh! Failed a trick? Laugh! Tipped over your heel? Laugh! Slipped on the pole? Laugh! Standing outside alone by yourself? Laugh! Okay, maybe the latter is not such a good idea, but hey you know what we mean. Everything in life cruises smoothly when you take things lightly. Embrace everything that goes with it! The burns, the morning-after body pains and the callouses! Don’t let them demotivate you, instead, let them inspire you! It’s a journey, isn’t it? So enjoy the spin! 

And last but the least, make friends! We call ourselves the TPR Tribe for the main reason we consider each and every one family! Even the ghost in the backroom occasionally sits down with us for some life advice. It’s always nice to have someone you can share anything with, especially if that someone can be anyone and everyone in the tribe! We’re here whenever you need help with choosing a heel, a pole outfit, learning a trick, naming your new pet, picking what outfit to wear to your office party, stress from work, science and the laws of gravity, someone to finish off your snack *wink wink*. ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING! 


So the next time you feel demotivated, remember that pole comes with ups and downs and flatlines in between. Enjoy and get the most out of every single part of it. And you’ll be on your way to the most awesome destination yet..the top, of the pole…and of yourself!

7 Reasons to Start Pole & Aerial Classes

Pole dancing and aerial are fierce and cool, there’s no question about it! But did you know that there are way more benefits to pole and aerials than just bragging rights, Insta-worthy photos and sassy selfies? YES, we know! Shocking right? 

Here’s the motivation for you (and your friends, and relatives, and colleagues) to start and keep going!

1. Unleash your power. Both pole and aerial require you to lift your body using every ounce of strength you have (particularly in your upper body). Some newbies are apprehensive about having zero strength but we’ve all been there. But let’s not forget about your mental strength too. By achieving what seems physically impossible, you train your mind to believe you can and will, do anything you set your mind too.

2. Rebuild long lost endurance. When was the last time you REALLY broke a sweat and exerted everything your body had? Regular pole and aerial classes will allow you to develop stamina that will have you feeling your absolute fittest. Increase your weekly sessions to heighten that endorphin rush!

3. Feel flexy! Believe us when we say we get bendy…A LOT! Yoga and pilates inspired stretches compliment the tricks and fluidity that make pole and aerial moves so damn inspiring. The Exorcist upside down going downstairs? Easy peasy! 😂

4. Achieve a full-on body workout. Not a single muscle in your body is spared from this workout! You’d be gripping the pole in places you didn’t realise could grip! Like, did you know that you could hoist yourself on an apparatus using just your chest and abdomen? Yeah you can! From your head rolls to your rotating knees, you will teach your body to do incredible things. With the exception of your tongue muscle. But don’t worry, your teacher’s working out hers when she shouts “POINT YOUR TOES!”.

5. Delve into an exercise you’ll actually look forward to. It’s everything but boring! Every session is exciting and brings you closer to your goal and closer to performing on stage! It’s a mix of dancing and body work, making it a fun workout! So fun it should be called a funout!

6. Practice confidence. We’ve been through that awkward phase too! We were once too critical of ourselves and our bodies. But pole dancing helped us embrace and love who we are more! By the end of the term, we came out more confident and self-loving! Shine and Performance Night? Bring it on!

7. Belong in tribe that loves you back! Finally, it’s all about the community. A gathering of wonderful people free of judgements. You walk in the door and already feels accepted. You keep on your on pace without having to worry about who you are and how you identify. 

That’s a wrap. Take the plunge and sign up for an experience that will have you doing the unthinkable. It might just change your life. 💜

5 Things to Bring to Your First Pole Class

Okay, so you just signed up for your first ever pole dance class. You’re giddy and excited and can’t wait to try something cool and new! But while you’re packing your pole bag, you realise that pole dancing isn’t the gym you’re used to. So you’re wondering, “what should I bring to class?” First off, yourself! Of course. LOL okay, on to the next. 

Here’s a checklist of what to take to your pole debut:

1. Water Bottle. Hydration is essential! Pole dancing is a rigorous form of exercise and requires a lot of movement, cardio, flexing and bending. You need to keep yourself hydrated throughout the session. Don’t worry though, we have water stations for when you need a refill.

2. Pole Grip. Palms are sweaty? Eminem had a problem with that too! But nothing some pole grip can’t fix. Available in fun-size tubes at your studio, each one has different textures, scents and levels of grip, depending on your preference. Make sure you try them all until you find one that fits your training regimen just right. If you’re starting out, ask your studio manager for their best advice.

3. Towel. Towels serve more than one purpose. They’re not just for wiping off sweat. They’re handy for wiping down the pole too. So have a spare one on standby. You’ll thank us later.

4. Kneepads. Floor work and pole go hand-in-hand! There’ll be lots of knees sweeping the floor and rising up that pole! So make sure you have your kneepads ready. Take it from us, you want to be able to move freely, without having to worry about bruising.

5. Shorts. The more skin showing, the better. Not just because it shows off your go-getter self. Exposing more skin means you’ll be able to grip on the pole and execute tricks with more finesse. That’s why most of the pole vids you see on your feed show off short shorts and cropped tops. 

Most importantly, walk through those doors with enthusiasm. Your attitude will take you from total newbie to an inverting, splitting, dancing pole trickster. All good if you don’t have heels and heel protectors on hand. There’s plenty of styles at the studio for you to try on after your class.

So, you ready? Got your uplifting energy and your pole bag in check? Let’s go for a spin!

The TPR Tribe Manifesto

What does it mean to be part of the TPR Tribe? What are our values? What do we stand for?

With the help of our wonderful students, we’ve put together the TPR Tribe Manifesto to remind our community to live their best life through pole and aerial.

Being part of the TPR Tribe means you’re committed to being the sassiest, most bad-ass, confident version of yourself. When you’re strutting around in those heels or doing things that are only made possible at the studios, there’s nothing that can stop you.

When you bring that mindset into your day-to-day, you’re invincible, powerful, fierce, and determined to achieve the impossible. A TPR Tribe Member sees beauty in themselves, and in others. They are accepting, open and free of judgement. Instead of trying to compete against their peers, a TPR Tribe member lifts them up, inspiring all those around them to be their very best. Because of this, a TPR Tribe is a total force to be reckoned with!

They are magnetic and share their infectious energy across their work and personal lives. Wearing your TPR Tribe badge means you live a life that is full of passion and excitement. You’re bold in taking risks, you know how to have fun, and you don’t hold back.

The person you see in the mirror is strong, secure and proud of who they have become. And when challenges and self doubt come your way, you know you can lean on your fellow TPR Tribe members (and that inner voice in your head) that reminds you that you can do absolutely anything.

If you’re ready to conquer confidence, and take control of the beliefs that have held you back from being the boldest version of you, make a visit to The Pole Room. 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.

CBD TEMPORARY CLOSURE (AND RELAUNCH)

Let’s start things off with the news that our CBD location is staying closed until early 2022.

When we reopen you’ll be walking into new facilities, a diverse and comprehensive timetable and more room to play!

As the ONLY pole and aerial facility in the Melbourne CBD, our entire team is excited to bring you higher ceilings, aerial apparatuses, morning classes and so much more. Keep an eye on your inbox and on socials to get the latest. You’ll get a glimpse of what’s happening behind the scenes as we work to bring the new space to life. We promise it will be well worth the wait!

What can I do while the studio is closed? Whilst renovations and studio fittings are underway, all students are welcome to attend our Mitcham, Highett, Kilsyth and Virtual Studios.

 

I’m currently a CBD member, what happens to my membership? Your account will stay on suspension and sessions frozen until reopening. If you wish to attend other locations contact us directly so we can temporarily transfer you.

 

The Kilsyth, Mitcham and Virtual Studios don’t work for me. What happens to my account? If the Kilsyth, Mitcham and Virtual Studios aren’t convenient enough for you, we’ll pause your account until the new CBD location is fully operational.

 

Where are you moving to? We’re not giving away too many secrets but the new location won’t be far.

 

I’m interested in starting classes at CBD, how can I register my interest for the new studio? Join our waitlist so you’re first to be contacted when we relaunch the new space.

MITCHAM, KILYSTH & HIGHETT STUDIOS REOPENING

Save the date for THIS SATURDAY, October 30th! That’s when we’re opening.

Your instructors can’t wait to rebuild your strength, while bringing that sass, fun and laughter back to the studio!

Classes will be uploaded into the timetable by this Monday (Oct 25th) and will be ready for booking from 3pm Tuesday (26th Oct)! 

VACCINATION CERTIFICATES

The Pole Room has always been an inclusive and welcoming space for everyone. It breaks our hearts to know that due to Victorian Government regulations, our studios can only open to fully vaccinated individuals. 

We believe this is only temporary and we can welcome everyone back in studio soon. If you are not vaccinated our Virtual Studio will continue to operate as normal with many instructors staying onboard to continue bringing you our program online.

For those attending our physical locations, you will need to provide proof of full vaccinations. We’re making this process simple and asking that you either :

a) Upload your Vaccination Certificate in advance using our Contact Us form
b) Bring a copy of your Vaccination Certificate to the studio for Front Desk

Once your status is verified a green tick will appear on your account so you won’t need to worry about providing proof each time you arrive.

STUDENT FAQs

When do Membership payments recommence? We know many students have accrued sessions and will need to catch-up on any accrued sessions.. Therefore Direct Debits won’t begin until the week of November 15th.

I’m unable attend straight away when you reopen? If you’re not able to attend when reopen we ask that you submit a suspension request here. 

I’m new and ready to try a pole and/or aerial class! How do I get started? Join our waitlist so you’re first to be contacted when we relaunch the new space.

When can I book upcoming classes? Classes will be uploaded into the timetable by this Monday (Oct 25th) and will be ready for booking from Friday 29th!

I have expired sessions on my account. What happens to my account? As usual all sessions will be extended by the duration of the lockdown. Our admin team is already in the process of extending your sessions. You can submit a session extension request if you feel we may have missed something.

We’ll continue to update this section with more FAQs as they come.
