At the University of Essex Pole Dancing Club, we provide a great environment for our members to have fun and learn the art of Pole Dancing! Our classes are suitable for all abilities, from those who have never been on a pole before to those who are more experienced. We are a relatively young sport but are spreading the word on Pole Dancing in a fun and safe environment! We also have Strength and Flexibility Classes which will help you master more pole moves and Dance Classes to help with your choreography and movement both on and off the pole.

 

How many teams do we have?

Our squads compete in the categories of Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Group Performance at various competitions throughout the year.
