A love of hip hop inspired Lianne and Marisa to take up pole dancing. The inspiration came after seeing Dr Dre and Snoop Doggs Next Episode music video on MTV. To this day the classes keep a real hip hop, RnB urban feel.

York Pole Dance Academy was one of the first pole dance schools in the UK established in 2005. We started very small and the school is not a franchise.

York Pole Dance Academy keeps pole dancing very traditional and old school. We teach a 50/50 mix of spins/pole moves and dance moves. This mix is what makes the classes original and so popular. Students are taught to link all the moves together making their routines sleek and sexy. The dance moves inject the fun into classes, then the spins and tricks will tone all muscles. York Pole Dance Academy can teach you attitude, rhythm, confidence and sexiness.

The school was started though a passion of music and pole dancing that has unfortunately become lost in a world of extreme defeminised pole fitness. Many schools cut out the dancing part, this is your cardio workout, the part that aids weight loss. It is the fun part that makes routines gel together the expressive, creative and emotional part that makes pole dancing look so amazing.
