PolePedia’s mission is to promote the art of pole dancing by providing a consolidated, community-based resource.


You’re considering taking up pole dancing – or maybe you’ve been pole dancing for years. Whoever you are, it can be tough to find straightforward, simple answers to many common questions.

We understand it can be confusing to know where to start, or even what you’re looking for – you just want to progress. Maybe you have the question, but don’t know where to go to find the answers.

In our Roadmap to Pole, we’ve taken questions from pole dancers across the globe, crafted bite-sized answers for each, and added optional further reading articles from across our website to help you reach your pole-destination with as little confusion as possible.
