Intro to Pole

Intro to Pole – 4 weeks

You’ve been wanting to try pole and you’re ready to commit, then look no further than our Intro to Pole course.

Our 4 week pole course is designed for the absolute novice with no fitness level or previous experience required. Learn all the basics to help get you started with your pole journey.

Our classes are designed to be small in size, allowing you to get the most out of your workout and ensure our instructor’s can guide you through each session safely.

Want to try Pole but not sure whether it’s right for you, our Pole Taster class is your perfect option suitable for both current and non-current students.

Our Pole Taster is a great way to trial what we have to offer at Risque Demeanor. In this class you will get a taste of what we have to offer from our Intro to Pole and Beginner Courses. Our instructors are experienced in offering modifications and progressions, for all fitness levels and abilities. To see when our Pole Basics classes are on, click here.

Classes are valid for 14 days from time of booking. Should you need to reschedule/cancel, please do so at least 6 hours prior to class.


Just a few tips below before your first class at Risque Demeanor.


To book your casual classes, download the MindBody APP on your smartphone, search Risque Demeanor and pick your class. Alternatively, you can book via the TIMETABLE page on our website or contact the studio.

If you are unable to make a class, we ask that you cancel at least 4 hours prior to class. You can do so via the app or through the website, otherwise please contact the studio directly on. Classes will still be charged and make up classes are forfeited if cancellations are made within the 4 hours prior to any class/course.



We generally recommend light and comfortable active-wear that won’t restrict your movement – leggings and a t-shirt/singlet are preferred. Majority of our classes are done with no shoes. Runners are recommended for our more fitness based class of Full Body Fit and Pole Heels are only required for our chorey courses.


Items we suggest you bring include a water bottle and a towel. We do have these items available for purchase at the studio also.


Please aim to arrive 5-10 minutes early so you have plenty of time to familiarise yourself with our studio, settle in, meet the instructor and ask any questions you
may have before class starts.


Stretching is just as important as working out. If you can’t make it to one of our stretch classes or don’t have time to hang around and stretch after class, ensure that you take some time to do so at home. Muscle soreness is completely normal for a few days after your class – you’ve worked hard! Listen to your body and rest if you need too. Stay hydrated and keep your muscles warm.


We don’t like to say goodbye, so make sure before you leave the studio you book into your next course/class. You’ll see most improvement if you take part in at least 2-3 classes per week. We recommend one of each – pole, conditioning & flexibility.


Our studio shares the same street as Bikram Yoga Yarraville, The HIIT  Factory and Bodyfit Yarraville so we are not hard to find. You can find us on Hall Street, closest to the end of Whitehall Street. We have a car park at the back of our premises where our main entrance is. If you have trouble finding us, please don’t hesitate to call.


If you have any questions that you can’t find the answer to, feel free to contact us. Otherwise, head to our FAQ’s page where you can find more information.
