Common Myths about Pole Dancing Debunked

At Aerial Fifty Two, we value empowerment and strength which is exactly why we’re not just a studio; we’re a community that dismantles stereotypes and embraces the transformative power of pole dance and fitness.  Let’s shed some light on some common myths that you’ve probably heard once or twice about this art form. By the end of this post, you’ll uncover the real, true, empowering power that pole dancing possesses. 

Here are three of the top common myths about pole dancing that we can shut down right now with the truth:

Myth #1: You Need To Be Fit Before Getting Started With Pole Dancing

Truth : You will become more fit as you continue to pole dance – you’ve just got to get started! Like many other studios, Aerial Fifty Two follows a specifically curated class syllabus so that each spin and trick you learn, sets a foundation for newer, more complex tricks and spins later on. This allows you to learn and progress through each pole level safely and at your own pace. The A52 Instructors are extremely supportive and will encourage you to continue to believe in your own ability and grow confidence in achieving your poles goals!

Myth #2: Pole Dancing is Only For Younger People

Truth:. Many are surprised by the age diversity here at Aerial Fifty Two. Regardless of your age, you will be welcomed with open arms! Some classes have participants aged anywhere between 18 years old to 60 years old and up! Everyone is always so supportive of each other no matter their age. Another word for aging is Living – and what better way to live than to parade around freely in your favorite flirty outfit and dancing heels!

Myth #3: Pole Dancing is Exclusively for Women  

Truth: Another HUGE misconception is that pole dancing is a female-only activity. 

In reality, the pole dance and aerial community is diverse and inclusive, welcoming individuals of all genders and walks of life. Aerial Fifty Two has built an environment that celebrates diversity, providing a space where everyone can explore their strength, flexibility, and creativity without limitations. Pole dancing is a form of self-expression and fitness that goes past gender boundaries and social norms, encouraging anyone with an interest to take part in this empowering practice.

As we continue to unravel the myths surrounding pole dancing, it becomes very clear that this art form extends far beyond stereotypes and misconceptions. 

Aerial Fifty Two stands as a testament to the inclusive, empowering nature of pole dance and fitness, proving that it is a journey accessible to all, regardless of gender or background. Let the aerial spins and gravity-defying tricks serve as a reminder that pole dancing is a celebration of strength, self-expression, and community. 

Happy Dancing!
