Absolutely! Sometimes it’s even more fun when you bring a plus-one. If you do intend to bring a friend make sure they also apply for a free trial class as spots are limited.
Many of us explore a new workout and soon after, lose motivation because we’re not seeing results. Perhaps it starts to feel boring and repetitive.
It’s fair to say, that’s not the case with The Pole Room’s Pole and Aerial Programs. In fact, I’ll guarantee that no gyms offer the heel strutting, booty twerking and air-lifting experience like ours! What’s more – our programs take you through purposeful levels so that you can feel and see yourself transform.
But it’s not just the classes that make The Pole Room different. Every time you learn a new skill, perform a dance move or progress through our levels you’ll become a more self assured and confident version of you.
Find us in four Melbourne locations, including Flinders Lane (CBD), Mitcham, Kilsyth and Highett.

“This is an amazing and supportive studio! It is always fun to go and while the classes are challenging they don’t feel like a workout because they are so fun!“
“After seeing these beautiful people on Shark Tank tonight, I feel inspired to tell the world how wonderful The Pole Room really is! I joined 6 months ago for the casual classes, and what I found was so much more than i could have ever imagined! The teachers are fantastic, the studio is stunning, the courses are extremely well designed, and the variety of classes on offer is unique for a pole studio… But those aren’t the reasons TPR is so addictive. Jazzy has created a pole family. Everyone is so kind and welcoming, and SO encouraging of one another. I’ve danced my whole life and have never been part of a community like this. From the second you walk in the door, you’re home; no matter who you are or why you’re there. Because of my depression and anxiety, coming into a place like this was utterly terrifying, but I’m SO glad I did! I am stronger, bendier, and happier. TPR is my happy place and I couldn’t be more filled with pride to be a part of the TPR community. <3“
“I had started pole dancing elsewhere but several friends had started attending The Pole Room and everyone of them reported experiencing a sort of epiphany! Not only are the Principals, Jasmine Zapka and Andy Eastoe extremely welcoming, supportive and personally interested in every student: The other students are also friendly, inclusive and totally supportive and encouraging. Attending The Pole Room has become a MAJOR part of my life – I’ve grown in terms of my ability to perform pole tricks I once thought impossible; my dancing generally has improved out of sight and my confidence is positively strataspheric! The instructors are some of the best available at any studio and many are out there competing at state and national levels.“
“A very friendly and encouraging environment to learn in. Everybody is encouraging you to succeed with so many classes on offer along with 8 week courses its an all round body workout which is so much fun the time flies. Would encourage anyone to give it a go, you will surprise yourself!“
“The pole room isn’t just a pole studio its a family. Everyone here are supportive and encouraging I love the variety of casual classes and the courses, its reasonably priced and teachers and equipment are at highest standards. Never a boring workout at The Pole Room.“
“The best experience you will ever have. A comfortable environment for all ages, shapes and sizes. The most supportive staff, team and members that you will ever find. The bonus of doing Pole Dancing at the Pole Room whilst having fun learning amazing moves, is the natural change in fitness , strength and body shape. Bonus I’m 2 months short of 50 y/o and I should of done it years ago.“
“Such a positive environment filled with teachers who know their craft well. 100% recommend.“
“Amazing teachers who make you feel so comfortable from the moment you walk in. I love the vibe of this studio and have had positive interactions with all staff I’ve met so far. Special shout out to Georgie who somehow had everyone laughing and smiling at 8pm on a Monday night (a miracle).“

“Highly recommend!!! I absolutely love coming to class, all the instructors are all so amazing, so friendly and great at what they do! For anyone that’s keen to try out Pole, TPR is the place for you!“
“My ultimate happy place in the city, I’ve been training there for about a year and having trialed other studios while waiting for renos to be finished I can attest this is the most fun, welcoming & encouraging pole studio I’ve been to! I always feel right at home as everybody from the staff members to the other polers are always so friendly and helpful, and I’ve made many friends there. The instructors are amazing and dedicated to each student’s progress, and the classes are super varied (if you like super slinky dance classes this is 100% the place to be)! The new studio is already looking awesome and I can’t wait to see how it looks in a few months’ time. Would highly recommend if you’re looking to join a community that will have your back and cheer you on with whatever goals you are trying to achieve!“
“Best Dance Studio around. This is due to a number of reasons. One being that they are the one of a few Pole dancing studios that accept men. Second is the receptionist Jake, He makes you feel Welcome and is well verse in knowledge in what’s going on. and third being the teachers. Georgie is highly…. unique and full of energy.“
“The absolute best studio. If you’ve been thinking of joining, please do! The environment here would have to be the most welcoming, diverse and inclusive that I’ve ever experienced ( and I have social anxiety, so I can rarely say that!) Pole is for everyone, you just need to start. You’ll see changes in your mindset, fitness levels, and body that you can’t get from just a regular gym. This studio offers the best class types because there’s literally a style for everyone. Highly recommended!“

“I’ve really enjoyed the classes I have attended so far at The Pole Room CBD and am looking forward to continuing. The classes are fun, inclusive, and structured to help see growth and learn new tricks. The teachers are highly skilled and accomodating and put effort into explaining tricks in different ways to cater for different learning styles. And awesome choreography and routines of course! The reception staff are amazing, friendly and welcoming! Always being greeted in such a friendly way as soon as the elevator door opens is just the beginning of the awesome experience here. Highly skilled and super helpful whenever I’ve missed a class or had to book make up classes. Thank you thank you! 👯👯“

After your free trial...
While Spots Last
Absolutely! Sometimes it’s even more fun when you bring a plus-one. If you do intend to bring a friend make sure they also apply for a free trial class as spots are limited.
Apart from a smile and ‘can-do’ attitude, hydration is important so bring a water bottle. We have taps in the studios to refill. There’s also a high chance you’ll get hot and sweaty in your first class so bring a towel and a light change of clothes if needed.
Absolutely! Many of our students have little to no experience when getting started. Our program is levels based, meaning if you accept the challenge you can progress quickly but otherwise, you can go at your own pace.
Your free trial class will run for an hour. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to ensure you’re signed in and ready to go!
Heels are typically worn only in our more advanced pole dance or floorwork classes. We do not encourage beginners wearing heels in their free trial class.
For our Pole program, you must be at least 16 years old and have parental consent if you are under the age of 18.
For our Lyra or Aerials program we do not have an age restriction, however if you are 14 or younger you will require a guardian to be present during the class.
At The Pole Room we create a fun, safe and welcoming environment for everyone. In return we ask that you keep the safety of yourself and others in mind. Above everything we want you to give everything your best shot!
Depending on the injury and how long you have sustained the injury, we may require approval from your doctor to confirm you are fit to participate in our classes.
Across all of our studios, multiples of each class are run at different times and days throughout the week. If you can’t make class on a particular night, check the timetable and you will find the same class at a different day or time giving you a second opportunity to book in that week.
Having trouble making your preferred classes each week? Speak directly to our staff about what’s best to do. We are open to taking requests as our timetable is dynamic and can change based on our members requests.
Not everyone has the same fitness ambitions. Thankfully the variety of classes offered give you the opportunity to focus on one or more types of outcome.
For Strength & Stamina: Try our Trick classes that will get your muscles working in overdrive!
For Flexibility: Try our Flexibility classes that will get your body primed for movement!
For Body Conditioning: Try our Dance classes that will get your heart rate up and body dripping in sweat!
Absolutely! When joining you are not expected to have any prior fitness or dance background. Our job is to teach you and help you improve over the journey.
A good rule of thumb for Pole is the more skin you show, the more grip you’ll have on the pole.
Even as a beginner you will be using your thighs, knees, calves and ankles to hug the pole, so short shorts are a must for the best possible grip. For your upper body a short sleeved shirt or singlet is best. As you become more of an advanced poler and move through the levels, a sports bra or crop top will help to expose the skin on your elbows, underarms, back and midriff. To get the most from each session avoid using moisturiser / oils and remove all jewellery.
Lyra (also known as aerial hoop or ring) is a steel ring suspended from the ceiling by secure rigging. It’s usually wrapped in grip tape and you can perform amazing acrobatics on it! Lyra and silks are quite the opposite of pole in the sense that it’s easier fully clothed. A tight pair of leggings and a tight fitting shirt.
TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Whilst no equipment is required for your first class; we’ve gotchu for when it’s time to build your pole wardrobe with heels, kneepads, merchandise, and so much more.
Colourful cushion to protect the knees
Lace up your boots in preparation for class
