FAQ

What makes Enchant different?
Enchant is an inclusive dance studio which focuses on blending contemporary dance with pole dance. We teach fundamental dance technique and combine that with pole to make each movement flow together like water! We don’t just teach you a trick, we teach you a skill! We provide very small class sizes which ensure individual attention and lots of practice time. Our teachers also go through an extremely in depth certification process that focuses on keeping you safe!


Where are you located?
Enchant Vertical Dance is located in the lower level of the 12th and Pike building. The entrance is on 12th. Look for our sign right under Dark Ages Tattoo’s window and next door to Barrio.

What are your prices?
Our prices are listed on our "About" page as well as on our scheduling page under the "Online Store" tab. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for special deals!


When are classes?
We have classes every day of the week. Our schedule is available by clicking on "Sign up now".


Do I need any prior experience to start taking classes at Enchant?
Nope! We will teach you what you need to know.


What do I wear and bring to class?
You can wear anything you feel comfortable working out in for the first two weeks of Pole 1. On the last 3 classes you will want to wear shorts so that you skin can make contact with the pole. Bring plenty of water with you! No rings or bracelets.


Is it ok if I miss a day of Pole 1?
We require dancers to attend their first day of pole 1, but do provide one free makeup lesson if they need to miss one of the following classes. Any further makeup lessons cost the price of a single class pole dance drop in pass. Email contact@enchantdance.com for more details.


After Pole 1, what is next?
After you have completed our Pole 1 series, you will move on to our drop-in based class Pole 2. We offer this class multiple times per week so that you can come as often as you like! We also offer a variety of other classes to assist in your training, such as: Ballet, Modern, Jazz Contemporary, Yoga and Flexibility!


When can I take Spin Pole?
Once you complete Pole 2!


When can I go upside down?
You will learn your basic Pole Crunch in day 1 of Pole 1. What we look for to approve dancers for inverts is a solid deadlift Pole Crunch with a pelvic tuck. If that makes no sense at all to you right now, don’t worry! We will explain it all and show you what we mean in Pole 1!


Do you have mirrors?
Yes!


Whats the maximum number of students in class?
6 in Studio A and 8 in Studio B


Do people share poles in class?
Yes! It is standard within the pole industry for people to share poles. Sharing poles allows you to take a moment to hydrate and rest your muscles so that you do not overdo it. Sharing a pole can also be extremely helpful to the learning process. We learn much better if we can see someone else going through the experience of learning the moves and receiving instructions, it is especially handy with choreography!


I am interested in ballet, but have had prior experience that wasn't the best:
Don't worry! Erin is the sweetest person ever and a wonderful teacher. Erin focuses on teaching adults in a safe way to keep us dancing long term. She never pushes us into anything that hurts and works with our bodies, not against them.


I have been dancing for years, will I get anything out of Ballet Fundamentals?
Absolutely! Erin is wonderful at providing progressions and helpful critiques for anyone with previous experience.


I have prior pole dance experience. What class should I sign up for?
Enchant welcomes dancers from other studios who have been learning consistently for three months from a certified instructor at a pole dance studio. Any self taught dancers, dancers who have been dancing for less than three months or dancers who have taken a year or more off from Pole are asked to start with our Pole 1: Introduction to Pole Dance series. Any dancers dancing for more than 3 months without breaks lasting over a year will be automatically placed in our Pole 2 classes. To be placed any higher than Pole 2, Enchant requires a Safety and Technique lesson. In this lesson we will break down every move you have learned and verify it was taught in the safest way possible to ensure long-term muscle and joint stability. These lessons are $45 per hour and are also just a great way to go over the little tiny details of each move. Email contact@enchantdance.com to discuss transferring over in further detail.


I have experience in other forms of fitness and/or dance, but have not taken pole before. Should I still sign up for Pole 1?
Having a fitness or dance background is never required, but always a plus! We still recommend you start by taking our Pole 1 series because we will teach you the safety fundamentals, which will be very important for moving on to Pole 2.


Do you have any classes where I can try it out without committing for 5 weeks?
Yes, we offer our Intro to Pole Dance Workshop once per month. You can view the scheduling by clicking "Sign up now" and selecting the "Workshop" tab.


Do you allow minors?
Enchant is an 18+ dance studio. We do allow minors 16+ with parental permission. We require the parent or guardian to attend checkin during the first class to sign the student's waiver.


I purchased a voucher, how do I use it?

How do I know which day of class we are on?
