About The Pole Studio
Whether you are a beginner looking for a fun way to get fit with friends or if you are an advanced pole dancer wanting to learn the latest tricks, we have a class for you.
We also have a Pole Studio in Pretoria, South Africa run by Pole Fitness Champion, Tracey Simmonds.
At The Pole Studio we will provide you with a total body workout, regardless of your age, size or fitness level. Pole Fitness will increase your flexibility, help you lose weight, build your core strength, stamina and fitness and most importantly, it’s great fun.
Each lesson consists of a warm up, series of tricks, spins, poses and transitions on and around the pole before a cool down.
What do we teach at The Pole Studio?
Our spinny pole classes include moves from our static syllabus, with some new elegant, spinny specific moves added in. You will learn how to control your momentum and fall in love with the way the pole freely moves, allowing you to hold both spins and tricks with ease. You must be at an intermediate level and know how to strongly invert to join our spinny pole classes.
Practice sessions are available at our Basingstoke, Dorking, Staines, Surbiton and Twickenham Pole Studios.
For £7.50 an hour you are guaranteed to get a pole on your own to practise and perfect moves you have been learning within your lessons. Our practise sessions are open to all The Pole Studio students. You must have someone with you at all times when practising, as you must not be alone in the studio for safety and insurance purposes.
The PoleSafe Federation
Sarah Brown, founder of The Pole Studio, is also the founder of The PoleSafe campaign. She created PoleSafe to help look after all aspects of Pole and to help keep everyone safe. PoleSafe is an all-inclusive federation which is dedicated to helping the industry grow and develop and most importantly, stay safe. All the committee members have many years of Pole knowledge.
