10 Things You Will Not Find in Our Pole Dance Studio

Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas

They Say You Can Talk About Anything – Except Pole Dancing.

In 2018 it seems that almost anything goes and is widely accepted – ample curse words allowed on mainstream radio stations, edgy intimate scenes in commercials, a reality star for a President… so then why are so many women interested in taking pole dance lessons afraid to tell their family and friends?

As a growing Pole Dance Company we have heard so many stories of our clients who are secretive about their love for a unique form of fitness and who hide their weeknight gym visits like they were frequenting the Red Light District instead of one of our studios. These women hide their association with Pole Dancing because they are intimidated of being reprimanded by their jobs, parents, friends, church leaders, and even sometimes their spouses. Sometimes the public opinion can be one of flat out mockery and jokes about Pole Dance. These women are dealing with the fear of being misunderstood, laughed at rejected, and stereotyped. It is such an ugly quiet battle that pains the culture of women who love to take pole dancing classes. No one should have to feel ostracized for how they choose to get in shape.

If you are one of those people who have ever criticized a Pole Dance Student (or a prospective Pole Dancing Student), while we cannot speak for every Pole Dance Studio - here are a few things you should know about our classes at Power BAR Women’s Fitness:

  1. No one in our Pole Dance Class is naked at any time. Our students mainly wear attire such as tank tops, above the knee shorts, socks for their feet, and tennis shoes. The reason for dressing down into a sports bra or shorter shorts will be one of safety so that the student’s skin can grip the pole for more advanced tricks – however this comes later in their training.

  2. No one is “stripping” which means to remove articles of clothing often for the pleasure of others or for monetary gain. We DO teach sexy, however from a place of a private and intimate relationship fulfillment. We do NOT teach women how to undress with the intent to be paid. Our pole fitness classes and its supporting dance classes do not encourage women to make themselves objects and incite that they will be financially rewarded for doing so.

  3. Our Clients are not uneducated and desperate. The average career for our pole dance students’ are graded professional on Career sites and typically require a College Degree to be in their fields. Some examples of our students’ careers are: educators, administrative assistants, financial services, veterans, and corporate level management. Since the law of success states that we are the average of the 5 closest people we are around, women in our studios make the perfect network opportunities for those seeking a higher grade lifestyle.
