What We Do
Welcome to the University of Bath PoleSoc page!
Building strength and flexibility, toning every muscle, boosting confidence and having fun with friends is what we do. We offer several classes a week at a pole studio close to the centre of Bath and you won't find cheaper classes anywhere else!
No matter what gender or your fitness level we have classes that will suit you. You can choose whether you want to learn routines and perform in a variety of showcases or if you just want to learn gymnastic-like moves, both are completely fine!
Most importantly if you want to practice and learn amazing pole moves with like minded people who support and learn from each other, then this is the society for you!
"Give it a Go" Sessions
Give it a go sessions are a great way to try pole if you aren't sure if you want to commit to classes without trying it out first. Each session lasts 30 minutes and will cover a few basic moves so you can get a feel of what pole's really like. Don't worry if you've never danced/been to a gym before, the main aim of the sessions is just to have fun!

Reasons to Join Us
Pole dancing is no doubt a topic that is still controversial, but more people are beginning to recognize it as a highly beneficial form of exercise, and a beautiful and impressive art form, much like it's true origins in the circus. Whether you are interested in gymnastics, ballet or modern dance or just want to try a new type of fitness, pole is definitely something for you!
Combining dance, ballet, gymnastics, aerial acrobatics and even some contortion, it works every muscle and improves your full body flexibility. Reaching your goals and learning new moves can be a long and challenging journey, but the feeling of achievement will boost your confidence and have you hooked! Inspiration is always easy to find when watching some of the best performers in pole, both male and female. Take a look at the video below to see one of our favourite examples of this.
