Leggings or jogging bottoms, supportive bra and top/hoodie. Preferably thick clothing as friction burn is common. Socks or leg warmers to avoid burns or bruising of the ankles/feet. 



Loose fitting clothing is recommended with multiple layers if possible. Legs and arms should be covered to protect from discomfort. We sell our own line of Essex Pole & Tone children's clothing, including onesies which are highly recommend as the thick padding helps protect while also aiding safe spotting techniques.


Close fitting clothing that covers your legs, torso and arms is recommended as this will help to protect the skin and reduce friction burns.


Pole dancing specific style heels and/or boots (such as pleasers, hella heels) are required for heels classes, this is because the design of the shoe, the platform and the angled fronts are specifically made to make dancing easier with more support and comfort than your average high heel. As a bonus they will make your legs look longer!
