Now that it's no longer taboo to want to learn to pole dance, many women (and men!) are discovering just how fun and challenging this sport can be. If you'd like to try pole dancing but aren't sure where or how to start, this page is for you.
Online lessons are convenient, private, affordable, and you can work at your own pace, reviewing as often as you like without having to pay extra.
But be careful...you don't want to watch just any old videos if your goal is to learn safely and correctly.
Video clips are great fun to watch, but they're usually just for show. They rarely offer complete or proper instruction.
Your Pole Pal recommends these high-quality, safe and effective online pole dancing lessons.
Group classes are one of the most popular ways to learn to pole dance, for a whole lot of reasons. For starters, these lessons are much less expensive than private training sessions.
And being in a class with other students can be super inspiring. Plus, the group bonding can't be beat!
You can find studios offering group classes in more and more cities, so there's probably one near you.
Here's where you can learn more about group pole dancing classes, including pros and cons, questions to ask, and how to find studios or teachers near you.
Manuals, books and e-books have many of the same advantages as learning from DVDs and videos (see below), but they also have a couple of unique benefits.
Though it may sound odd to learn to pole dance from a book, it can actually work quite well.
If you often find that classes, or even DVDs, move too fast for you, or if you just prefer to study pictures and read descriptions, learning from a book might be just the ticket for you!

Private lessons are ideal if you're shy about learning in a group, or if you work shifts and can't get to class at the same time every week.
They're also perfect if you want to progress more quickly, or if you need extra help to master an advanced move or special trick that's giving you trouble.
Private lessons are more expensive than group classes, but since you're the only student you'll be able to learn a lot more in an hour than you would in a group class.
Learn more about private lessons, including where to find an instructor near you.
Using a DVD or two (or three!) is another way to go, either as your primary learning method or as a supplement to group or private classes.
You'll need to have your own dance pole of course, but if there are no studios near you, this can be a great way to learn to pole dance at home.
Although you'll just get a taste of what pole dancing all about, a pole dancing party can make for a really fun introduction to this sport.
That's especially true if you're celebrating a special event like a birthday or a stagette party and the main goal is to have a good time.
Many studios offer parties both on-site and on location in your home or hotel. There are also a few companies that specialize only in doing parties.
