If you can't find it, can you create it?
by: Susan from PDFF

Thanks for your question! I'm sure lots of other plus size women are wondering where they can find suitable classes near them too.

A good place to start is by doing a quick search in my worldwide pole dancing directory.

The challenge, of course, is that while you're likely to find at least one nearby pole fitness studio, the concept of pole dancing classes just for plus size women is only just starting to catch on.

This means that finding a plus size pole dance class is probably going to be more difficult than finding a pole dancing studio. Unfortunately, many studios don't yet recognize the size of the market they're overlooking by not offering these specialty classes.

As I pointed out in this post about whether height, weight or size really matters, it's a new concept in many places, and larger women who'd like to take a pole dancing class with their plus size peers may need to be proactive in approaching their local pole studio and getting a class going.

One of the best ways to do this is to get a small group of your plus size friends together and then approach your local studio to ask if they'll do a class just for you.

The biggest concern any business owner will have about putting a specialty class on her schedule is whether or not people will sign up. From a business perspective, she doesn't want to commit studio space and then not have enough students to be able to run the class.

So if you can demonstrate that there's enough support for it, the studio would be crazy (IMHO!) not to offer a plus size pole dancing class.

Please don't give up your search, and if you have a couple of friends who would take a class with you I really encourage you to approach your local studio. Unless they know there's a demand, plus size pole dancing classes will continue to be few and far between.

Thanks again for your question, and do let me know how it goes!

by: PLatinum Dance Studio of Philadelphia

Platinum Dance Studio welcomes Plus Size Pole dance lessons every second Saturday of the Month. This class includes pole dance, strip tease & consultation. Though we encourage women all sizes & shapes to come out any day of the week to one of our lessons, we wanted our girls to feel comfortable. So we decided to dedicate a night for them to feel special. Check it out every second Saturday evening from 8:00pm to 10:00pm. Join the fun!
