York Pole Dance Academy
Our authentic pole dance school was established in 2005. Back before authentic stripper style pole dance became a massively popular movement like it is today.
Our studio ethos is based upon two main principals. We are passionate about QUALITY and about keeping pole dance AUTHENTIC.
We are experienced instructors and have extensive experience in the industry. This is where we are different and unique. We are professional pole dancers with a passion for keeping pole raw, exotic, creative and authentic. As instructors we have a passion for Russian exotic, stripper style flow and choreo. We bring the stage show type performance to the studio so that you can let go, have fun, gain in confidence and get fit at the same time.
We offer weekly group and private lessons from our resident studio in York. We also compete nationally, have appeared in music videos and tour with a selection of our signature stripper style workshops.
Pole dancing looks incredible and effortless to watch but it can be deceiving. It is actually a full body workout.
Pole dancing tones and sculpts your entire body. Lifting your body weight makes you strong whilst burning calories. Authentic exotic style includes dance which is cardio so will burn fat and will increase your overall fitness and flexibility. Pole dancing is great for your confidence and helps you to become strong inside and out.
Passion is not enough when it comes to making sure you exercise in a safe and effective way. It is essential to back up experience and creativity with internationally recognised fitness industry qualifications.
We hold the CPD REPs (register of exercise professionals) qualifications in pole dance fitness. This course is endorsed by ACE, AFAA, CANFITPRO, Fitness Australia, REPs, Skills Active, PDC, IPDFA and The PFA. We are certified in anatomy, phsiology and warm up and cool down techniques. We have the additional Spin City certification for stretch and flexibility.
York Pole Dance Academy are proud to be a PDC (Pole Dance Community) approved school. We are PDC level 3 approved instructors. The PDC recognises legitimate professionally run pole dance schools. We adhere to the strict PDC code of conduct at all times. The PDC code of conduct is a set of rules to help ensure that the pole dance industry achieves high standards.
Our spacious studio is fitted with floor to ceiling X-poles. We teach lessons on both spinning and static poles. All of our 45mm poles are brass, which is the most superior metal finish available on a dance pole. Brass is the grippiest choice of metal for poles and is ideal for dry skin and colder climates. We update our equipment regularly so that our students are learning on the best equipment possible.
Enter our flattering sparkly fairy light lit studio which is moody and atmospheric even on the brightest summer evening. York Pole Dance Academy offer a full range of classes to suit all abilities along with regular focus classes in twerk and flexibility to compliment your pole training. We regularly host workshops bringing the UK's top authentic dancers to you.
We hope to see you at our studio soon
