Picture this: You arrive at the pole dance competition, feeling both nervous and excited. You’ve been practicing for months, perfecting your routine and pushing yourself to new heights.
As you step onto the stage, the lights dim and the music starts. You start to move, feeling the adrenaline pumping through your veins as you hit each pose flawlessly. The audience is captivated, cheering you on as you transition from one move to the next with ease.
And then, the climax of your routine arrives. You execute the most challenging move you’ve ever attempted – a daring spin that requires both strength and grace. You hold your breath as you twist and turn around the pole, defying gravity and stunning everyone in the room.
Finally, as you come to the end of your routine, you strike your final pose and the crowd erupts into applause. You can feel the energy pulsing through the room as you take your final bow, knowing that you’ve achieved your dream of being a pole dance champion. It’s a moment you’ll never forget, and one that will inspire you to keep pushing yourself to new heights in the future.
This dream is never far away and if so many of our students at The Pole Room have reached it, so can you! If you haven’t already heard our structured 7 level Pole Program there’s still time to start your pole dreams with any of our upcoming introductory Pole courses at our Mitcham, Highett, CBD and Kilsyth studios.
Our Pole Program is designed to help aspiring polers tap into their inner strength, grace, and creativity. In our introductory courses, you will learn the foundational moves of pole dance, build strength and flexibility, and develop your own unique style. Led by our experienced pole dance instructors, our pole program is for those who want to explore the world of pole and unleash their inner pole star.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FIRST FEW WEEKS OF YOUR FIRST POLE COURSE
Our introductory courses are short but definitely sweet! They are designed to be more tricks focused with emphasis on nailing technique. You’ll build your strength, flexibility and confidence as you focus on the grips, climbs, and spins on the pole.
Week One is when you’ll get to meet your lovely instructors, pole buddies and of course your quirky Studio Managers. WhatsApp group chats will be popping on your phone giving you a chance to connect and share the wins. And our Facebook community group will give you plenty of pole inspiration and studio updates.
By week 2 you’ve survived your first class, woohoo! The shock has dissipated, now it’s time to build your momentum! In addition to your scheduled course you’ve tried some of our large range of alternative style fitness classes that run throughout the week and include flexibility, strength and dance.
Pole jitters, who dat? In the final weeks you’ve probably already built your confidence and have felt the changes to your strength and flexibility. Crazy how your body can do so much more than you thought it could!
Congratulations on completing such an intensive experience, now it’s time to immerse yourself deeper into pole through our program. In this structured and progressive pole program we’ll continue to build on the skills learnt in this course, as you take it one level at a time from Beginner level 2 all the way to Elite levels.

A spinning metal apparatus…not something you’d initially link with self-love, but for thousands of people all over the world (including myself), it offered exactly that. This is because true self-love goes much deeper than a surface-level skincare routine or eating well. Although these things are important, they don’t allow for us to really get to know ourselves, or offer us the chance to discover our inner strength and confidence.
The truth about finding self-love and confidence
Pole dancing gives us a unique opportunity to transform us from who we thought we were, to who we have the ability to become. It take us to the depths of ourselves because it’s hard work! Self love doesn’t come from lying in a bubble bath telling ourselves how fabulous we are. It develops through discipline and taking consistent action that challenges us to grow. We need to show, not tell ourselves how amazing and confident we are!
Personal growth through pole
Pole gives us insight that I don’t believe any other “fitness” regime can offer. I’m proud to say I’ve been a part of the pole industry for 13 and a half years. It has grown and evolved so much in that time, and I know it will continue to. There will always be a new trick to learn, a new dance style created (and new heels to buy!) and this keeps us growing and evolving with it, while keeping us humble.
Every single time we attend a pole, flexibility or dance class, we are showing ourselves love. We are doing something good for our bodies, mind and soul, and the best thing about it…it’s fun! So we genuinely want to show up, learn, and build confidence. That doesn’t mean we never have our off-days. It’s all a natural part of the process!
Being in feel-good environment
But it’s in those moments we get to choose how we show up for ourselves. We pole dancers can often be so hard on ourselves, falling prey to comparison over our fellow polers or our Instagram idols, but then we remember why we started…because we LOVE it and because it makes us feel good on the inside. And if that’s not enough to get us through our momentary struggle, then that’s when our Tribe shows up to offer guidance and support. Nobody is 100% immune to the inner critic, so this is when we can be grateful to be in a class with pumping tunes and laughter to drown out the self doubts when they creep in.
Pole has taught me so much about myself. It’s made me stronger than I could have ever dreamed (and not just physically), and it’s helped me accept and love myself fully – all while feeling confident and sexy AF in my 8″ heels! And I know it can do the same for you.
Kati has been pole-ing for over a decade and is favourited by students for her flowy, graceful style. She is also a Self Love Coach, and yoga teacher who has a focus on helping women bring out their inner strengths. View her profile to learn more and book a private, 1-on-1 lesson.

Classes are fun, relaxed and totally beginner-friendly.

Melbourne is hands down the best place in Australia to host a Hens party. It has a bustling city and a vibrant countryside with a swarth of options for any type of Hens party. Bridesmaids who have ever planned a Hens party in Melbourne would admit that because of the abundance of choice, choosing the right option can be tough. Part of making the right decision for the bride is having all the information. Here are 9 reasons why a pole dancing hens party may be the right fit (or not) for you and your friends.
But before we start. A pole dancing hens party is NOT for everyone…
There’s no pressure on everyone to participate in the striptease lesson or the burlesque should the bride choose those package options. In fact every party needs someone to take the pictures and let’s be honest, without the pictures you’d miss capturing some hilarious moments. This actually leads us to our first reason:
Pole dancing is not for everyone but it is for every body. See what we did there? Since pole dancing hit the mainstream in the early 00’s, it’s now recognised as a legit way to exercise for all ages, sizes and experience levels. That’s because at the beginner level any body can participate. In fact you probably already know someone involved in the sport.
It’s appropriate for the day (and night): Pole dancing was born in the nights but most hens party’s are held during the day. The beauty of pole dancing is the time of day doesn’t matter. Most venues host pole dancing parties at 10am before the group goes to lunch and also right before the group begins a night out on the town
Different types of packages. Some Brides will just want to learn the world’s sexiest pole moves, while others will want to learn how to perform the perfect strip tease. Do you blame them – they’ll need some new tricks for the Honeymoon! Once you decide on the right package the venue can always add some extra spins, twerks and pops.
Get dressed up. Pole dancing schools are probably one of the only places you can get dressed up without being out of place. Come up with your own theme. If you want predictable? Charlie’s Angels. Originality? Ghostbusters 2. Burlesque? Moulin Rouge. 80’s aerobics? Jane Fonda’s and her entourage. It’s never mandatory but it always adds to the party atmosphere
You can save the drunk for later! OK truth be told, some of the group will probably have a few glasses of champagne. But the fact is you won’t need shots of jagermeister to get the party started. Pole dancing instructors supply the metaphoric Jager Bombs through the music, movement and energy. The best part is that you’ll still remember the party in the morning.
A social and intimate event with friends. Events that involve movement are much more memorable. This is because when we move we release endorphins we move towards a happier state of mind. Plus what could be more social than learning a skill together in a room full of 3 metre high brass poles and full length mirrors?
Private venue and all minor details taken care of. Any good pole dancing venue will have everything taken care of. Snacks and nibbles? Check. Champagne? Check. Music? Check. Instructor? Check. Need to organise any extras? Topless hunks, Limo, Catered Lunch, Photographer? Check. In other words if you want a unique experience, most pole dancing venues can make it happen.
Experienced instructor and host are provided. As an organiser of any event it’s your responsibility to get the party started. Thankfully pole dancing instructors are the entertainers. They work teaching pole because they’re engaging and know how to throw a pole dancing Hens party! They also know how to handle a group, which is beneficial (if not necessary) when you have a room of ladies ready to get their sass on.
The overall experience: At the top everyone’s list when it comes to throwing a Hens party is making sure all the guests from Aunty Jennifer to Sally the next door neighbour have a fun and memorable experience. Pole dancing hens party’s are different for many of the reasons mentioned above, including the bonding, endorphins and sexy routines. Add friends, family and some pole dancing to the party and it’s all starting to come together. Now you all you need to do is write the invitations.
