Frequently asked questions

What do I wear to class?


We suggest tight fitting shorts with a sports bra, fitted top, or tank top. For more advanced classes pole specific attire is recommended. Most importantly, wear anything that makes you feel comfortable and free! Please remove all jewerly from neck, hands, and wrists. Earrings close to the ear are permitted. We recommend no lotions or oils on pole class days. Pole Dance Heels are welcome but not required.

We schedule Pole Dance 101 & Flexibility series regularly. Please check our schedule and register for the next one.




Is there a weight limit?


Wild Orchid is for all women, all sizes.




I'm a sex worker. Am I welcome?


Put simply...HELL YES YOU ARE! At Wild Orchid we honor the intertwined history of pole dancing and stripping. While there are various manifestations of pole dance and pole arts throughout history, the shape that pole dance takes in the western world today would not exist without strippers. It would be irresponsible to ignore the fact that the movements and aesthetics of pole dance are derived from strippers, who still face stigma for their work. Our studio stands behind the fact that sex work is work. Our Leadership in Equity and Diversity (LEAD) initiative works to educate our community about the stigmatization and marginalization of strippers, to teach pole dancers of all backgrounds how to advocate for sex worker rights, and to model the ways we all can do our part to dismantle whorephobia. Why should pole dancers care about sex workers’ rights? Although pole dancing has grown to include people besides strippers, we would be complicit in the daily violence against sex workers if we failed to acknowledge the origin of modern pole dance and its aesthetics. We see it as the responsibility of all pole dancers to protect the people more marginalized than us, whether that means standing for strippers’ rights if you’re not a sex worker, or respecting full service sex workers if you’re a dancer. Punching down at people who endure the most stigma will not solve the systemic misogyny that trickles over to pole dance in general. To learn more about how Pole Dancers can be allies, visit our Sex Work Advocacy page.
