Five Reasons to Start Pole Dancing
The Physical Benefits
Pole dancing can build muscle in a fairly short period of time. It does not take long before you begin to see results. The best part is that this toning of the muscles focuses quite well on those "problem areas" for women (arms, back, waist, hips). Pole dancing also improves balance, coordination and agility as well as increases flexibility and core strength.
The Emotional Benefits
Pole dancing has a deep connection with emotion, which you express through movement. Exercising your mind about your body is a great way to boost your confidence and empower yourself. You learn about your sensuality and how to connect with it. In turn, the sensual thinking with the physical workout boosts those endorphins.
It's Never Boring
There is always more to work on, whether it be a new trick, a routine or executing moves gracefully. You can learn that you are stronger, smarter, more beautiful and more capable than you ever thought possible and THAT is never boring.
Encouragement & Friendships
You can take classes with your best friends or complete strangers, but either way, you will be surrounded by positive, encouraging women in a non-judgmental environment. This not only creates a sense of optimism in your life, but also opens doors to amazing friendships. Everyone wants a workout buddy! Our group fitness classes offer a whole room of workout buddies to help motivate each other and hold each other
New Sexy Skills
Pole dancing is no way near easy nor sleazy. But it still definitely is sexy! Your new skills and toned body will amaze your friends, your significant other, but most importantly it will impress you!
Five Misconceptions & Excuses
I need to lose weight first. I'm too heavy.
Not true. Women of all ages, shapes and sizes pole dance. You do not need to be a skinny-mini to get started. Our poles have a manufacture weight limit of 250 pounds to put your weight on the pole, BUT there are many moves that do not require you to put your weight on the pole.
There are moves and tricks for any fitness level and level of ability and as your strength and skill develop so will the range of tricks and elaborations that can be added to your repertoire.
I don't have enough upper-body strength.
Not true. This is like saying "I don't have enough strength to go to the gym". Doesn't make sense huh? Many beginner pole dance moves require no upper body strength whatsoever. You gradually build strength each time you practice and try something new.
I'm too old.
Not true. Many of our regular members are over forty. We have seen 80+ year old women twirl around our poles. If they can do it, you can too!
I have a health condition or physical challenge.
Not true. Many women with diseases and disabilities are able to pole dance. We have worked with women that have autoimmune diseases, muscular and neurological disorders and disfigured or missing limbs. With pole dancing, you are able to learn at your own pace and our instructors are wonderful at modifying moves to work for each person. Also, all of the tricks, spins, and holds are versatile and can be adapted to fit any person, regardless of height, body type or ability. Please, first, check with your doctor to ensure you are allowed to try pole dancing.
I'm too shy.
Not true. You may be a shy person, but you don't need to be a wild woman to give pole dancing a try. Most women that walk in the door are nervous. Many of them say "I have been wanting to try this for a really long time" and "What have I gotten myself into?". These thoughts and feelings don't last long once you realize you are not the only one. All of our instructors are every-day women, just like you, that have a passion for dance. They will do their best to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The average class has a variety of women with varying ages and different backgrounds - no attitude or self-doubt necessary.
