Pole Dance Fitness Classes
Pole dance fitness classes are 45 minute classes held regularly at Pink Fitness’ Peoria studio. These classes are suitable for all experience and fitness levels, even beginners. Instructors structure these pole dance classes to offer variations of all pole tricks and exercises to accommodate each student’s individual abilities. Students can take as few or as many drop-in pole dance classes as they want at the schedule and pace they choose.
This 45 minute class focuses on simple choreography, including pole tricks, transitions, and filler moves. During the class your instructor will teach an entire pole dance routine. Each instructor teaches a different routine, and the routines change on a regular basis. The goal of this class is to keep you moving so that you get an amazing workout while learning a fun pole dance routine. No prior pole dance experience is necessary as instructors teach variations of all tricks to accommodate all levels of students and provide detailed instruction on safety and injury prevention.

Since 2009 Pink Fitness has offered this unique class that provides a full body workout using the pole as a stabilizer and for resistance to build toned, sexy muscles. This is a non-dance class – no choreography is taught in this class. The class may teach strength-related tricks, but the focus is on toning and performing strength building exercises on the pole combined with traditional fitness. This class is suitable for all fitness levels. View the Schedule.
Pole Dancing Workshops
For those who want to focus more on detailed instruction on pole dance tricks and choreography, Pink Fitness and our instructors have offered a variety of pole dance workshops for women throughout the Phoenix area since 2006. These workshops range from 1 – 2 hours and each focus on different areas of pole dance skills. The pole dance workshop schedule rotates each month, so be sure to check the schedule for the most current class offerings.
Unlike many studios that offer 6 week courses, we break up the content into individual one hour workshops. This allows you to pick and choose just the material you want to focus on, in the order you choose, but still have the opportunity to progress to more advanced levels by repeating individual workshops until you and your instructor decide you are ready to move up.

Pole Dance Orientation
The Pole Dance Orientation class is perfect for anybody who has never touched a pole before, feels she is not a good dancer, or is just looking to give pole dancing a try. The one hour workshop focuses on simple choreography and foundation pole dance moves to provide you with a preview of what to expect in our workshops, and does not include any weight bearing tricks. Poles are not shared in class – each student gets her own pole for class. View the Workshop Schedule.
The Pole Foundation one hour workshop lays the groundwork for learning to safely perform pole tricks and spins. This class is a pre-requisite for any tricks classes. During this one hour workshop you will learn the four foundation movements that are the basis of most spins. You will receive detailed instruction on safety, injury prevention, body alignment, and how to safely achieve the proper momentum for tricks. There is no routine to follow in this class, but this class can be repeated as many times as needed.
This class is excellent for those new to pole dance who are interested in learning tricks, at-home learners who want to learn how to identify and break down tricks they see, or current pole dancers who are looking to correct any bad habits for better safety and understanding of pole tricks.
