Q17: Will We Have Our Own Pole or Fabric? Most likely no. Although we have the largest pole and aerial studio in the southeast, pole and aerial fitness classes are intended to be a partnered experience for safety purposes. Even elite level athletes find holding and supporting their own body weight for extended periods of time to be challenging. It has been our experience that this statement also applies to novice pole dancers and aerial students.
