How Much Do Pole Dancing Lessons Cost?

Designed to help build strength, flexibility, and on occasion to release the inner vixen, pole dancing lessons are available at studios and community centers across the country. Students will need to develop both dance and gymnastic skills to master many of the moves as they spin, climb and flip on the 2" diameter vertical pole. Courses are taught by group, in private and as a studio or at-home party.

Typical costs:

  • One-hour group pole dancing classes cost about $12-$40 per person, depending on location and level of instructor. While arm and abdominal strength are required to advance past beginning levels, courses vary from intense exercise[1] sessions to more of a sensual performance[2] class, or some combination of the two. Levels vary slightly by location; however, beginners typically first learn to walk around the pole using dance moves, body weight and gravity to control spin speed in different positions. Intermediate courses move the student into more complex moves including the butterfly[3] . Advanced to extreme classes require maximum core strength and take the student through more complex and often inverted positions like the half-flag invert to a brass monkey[4] . The competitive level includes the annual championships held by the American Pole Fitness Association[5] .
  • Private pole dancing lessons cost about $90-$120 per hour, per person, or $125-$150 for 90 minutes, depending on location and level of instructor.
  • Pole dancing parties at a studio typically cost $35-$60 per person for two hours. Generally about 10 guests each work on a separate pole simultaneously as the instructor takes them through the basic moves.
  • At-home parties[6] allow a group of up to 10 to take turns trying out a single portable pole with an instructor for about $200-$250 for two hours, plus about $20 per person for participating guests. Non-participating guests are generally free. A $25-$100 travel fee may be needed, depending on how far the instructor has to travel.

What should be included:
  • The pole and the instruction should be included. Wear comfortable fitted workout clothes, high heels and bring a water bottle. Loose sweat or yoga pants may become twisted on the pole. Do not use lotion on the day of a lesson for best pole grip.
Additional costs:
  • Practicing outside of class will require a pole that costs about $200-$600, depending on height, material quality and if the pole lights up or spins. For example the X-Pert Set 50 mm pole[7] by X-Pole costs about $330 and offers both stationary and spinning options. Poles either screw into the floor and ceiling or are pressure mounted, depending on style. A stand-alone pole on a round base costs about $640-$740.
  • While not needed for many of the pole exercises, performance pole dancing typically requires 4-6" high heels[8] . They can be rented at many pole dancing locations or purchased for $22-$75.
Discounts:
  • Sign up for multiple sessions to reduce per class rates by about $2.50-$10, depending on location.
  • When planning an at-home pole party, ask if the company offers free attendance for the host.
Shopping for pole dancing lessons:
  • Some studios maintain online lists of pole classes by state, like SFactor[9] with locations in New York, Illinois, Texas and California.
