Taking Back Control

Do you have the freedom to express yourself, the freedom to be yourself? Women and men experience times in their lives when they feel trapped. Trapped in an abusive relationship, or as a child being abused at home by someone they love and trust. Research has estimated that approximately 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18. It’s a terrible truth that can’t be ignored. Pole dancing has helped countless women and men take back control of their lives and feel empowered again.

Let It Go

Life is stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Look at each obstacle like it’s a game. This has been the solution for Janice, age 44 who decided to manage her challenges at work the same when she learns new tricks at Pole Fitness Studio. Going at her own pace and letting go of any unrealistic expectations she may have previous put on herself makes it possible for her to let go of stress. “I love a challenge and pole dancing has empowered me make smarter choices at work and in my relationships.”

You Are Beautiful

How does one pick up the pieces after a divorce and live each day happily ever after? One step at a time - literally. For Maggie age 49, a pole dancing student since 2010, found comfort and support at Pole Fitness Studio. The positive effects from dancing with a pole last long after the class is over. Those who pole dance are more out-going, and confident. They accept who they are inside and out, and live an empowered life. 

Two Left Feet

Jazz dancing, hip hop classes, modern dance, and ballet are many forms of dance people can take growing up. However not everyone is fortunate to be able to take dance classes, nor does everyone want to. But for those who wish they did, or want to continue their passion for movement, pole dancing is a unique dance form that will increase body awareness and self esteem. You have two left feet? No problem! You are a tomboy? Cool! You are male? Great! Pole dancing is about interpreting the music, learning about your body, and accepting who you are. In this wonderful event called “Life” not everything in left happens in order. Embrace your two left feet and just dance!

You don’t have to be a dancer to dance, you dance to be a dancer.
