Yes! We welcome all levels of fitness,age, gender! Pole dancing is a full body workout. It is resistance training and cardio in one! It helps with flexibility and endurance. The simple act of climbing a pole is an incredible display of strength. It is no surprise, then, that most pole dancers insist they have never looked or felt better.
"But I've got no upper body strength!"
Thats why we go to pole class! You'll build skills as you grow and learn. That is part of what's so inspiring and empowering about it. Whether you’re uncoordinated and can’t lift your own body weight or you're an athlete with gymnastic capabilities, there is always a new trick or transition to learn with pole dancing. The process of growth never ends and the possibilities can be as creative as your imagination allows them to be.
Despite progress in the public’s understanding of what we do, many of us still fight stereotypes. Don’t get me wrong; Pole dancing can be very sexy. But it is not always as overtly sexual as people may believe. Because what we do is still considered taboo by many, there is a unique closeness that bonds the pole community together. There are pole dancers of all professions, ethnicities, religions, cultures, sizes, and ages.
There are three main branches of pole dancing. Sport, Art and Traditional. While we mainly focus on the sport side of things, we welcome all three
For what ever reason you may choose to join a pole class, here at Pole Pinups we encourage what's best for you! For everyone that has ever participated in a pole class knows that it is simply a great, fun way to workout.
You can dance out any emotion in class, whether joyful, angry or sad. The combination of athletic skill and artistic influence makes it incomparable to any other form of dance or sport. To me, it is both dance and sport woven together into one beautiful, athletic art form.
