Welcome to PoleSoc!
What is PoleSoc?
Welcome to one of the most inclusive, creative and friendly communities on campus! Building strength and flexibility, boosting confidence and having fun with friends is what we do.
Check out our tasters page (on the left) to check out our 2020 taster sessions w/c 28th September 2020.
Classes will still be held at Funky Money Studios. We have been working hard with the team at the studio to organise pole and aerial hoop lessons for you all. Check out the courses tab to sign up for lessons!
As there will be fewer places this year classes will be in blocks of four. This means that those who don’t manage to book onto a class will get another opportunity sooner rather than later!
Funky Monkey will also be offering online classes this year which will help you improve your flexibility and strength, or pole skills if you have access to a pole outside of classes and practice sessions.
The committee is also working on a YouTube channel to offer a variety of videos over the year.
Another way we are combatting the fewer class spaces is to adjust the way we run practices. We are working with the SU to increase the amount of space we have to practice, the amount of time we have to practice and the amount of equipment to practice with.
Practices -at the moment- will be taking place in the Art Studio at the Edge on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30. We will release a google sheets to book onto slots for practice sessions next week. We will also update you if any of our practice information changes.
We took part in some amazing events last year and hopefully this year will be the same!
Our March showcase is currently booked in but given the ever changing nature of the pandemic we are still unsure about whether this will go ahead.
We are keeping an eye out for updates from IUPDC about whether they are running the competition this year. If they are we will definitely be going!
The nearly naked calendar will also be happening this year – so be ready for more info on that soon!
We are so excited for another year of Polesoc and hope you are too! If you have any questions at all do not hesitate to ask us.
Lots of love,
