Build Your Skills with Online
Pole Dancing Lessons

Online pole dancing lessons...wow! With technology now, it is possible to get a degree from home, talk to friends on the other side of the world and...or learn how to pole dance!


Benefits of Taking Online Pole Dancing Lessons

Taking online pole dancing lessons is a good option for many reasons.

  • Another reason some like the idea of taking online pole dancing lessons is that there is privacy; learning some thing new can be intimidating (to some) and it helps if you are alone to try it out without the fear of others seeing your mistakes.
  • Also, you can learn right from the comfort of your home; no travel (especially for me since I have to drive a ways to get to the nearest studios) and if you have little ones, no sitter needed! So there are some outstanding benefits to taking lessons from your desktop or laptop.

How Online Pole Dancing Lessons Work

  • Learning from online lessons usually works with a monthly, quarterly or yearly subscription that allows you access to the library of lessons that are available.
  • All you need is your pole, a computer and an internet connection; I also suggest mirrors or a video camera where you can either see yourself or record yourself for feedback.

What to Look for in a Good Online Program

Check out each site carefully; look for the following:

  • Access to the instructor(s). Do they allow email, chat or video contact to get help with your progress or questions
  • Can you post or send in videos of yourself performing the instructed moves for feedback? I would want this feature to make sure I am 'getting it'!
  • Are the lessons designed in a progressive format - from beginner moves to the more advanced tricks?
  • Is safety emphasized? It's good when the instructor reinforces starting out with the simple, strength building moves before mastering other tricks?
  • Do you have optional access to contact other students? This is a good option for sharing your progress, creating community, getting help and feedback. We can all learn from each other!

Online Pole Dance Lesson Sites

There are quite a few sites that offer the online pole dancing lessons option of learning from home. Here are a few of them:

Studio Veena

One of the sites that I have used is Studio Veena's website where there is a whole curriculum to learn from and you can go back again and again and review and pause and start all over. Another reason why I like Veena is because of the clarity and simplicity with which she teaches and illustrates; no detail is left out and I find that using her classes on her site are almost as good as being with an instructor!

You can get feedback from her and other dancers directly by posting your videos for feedback and every Friday night there is a chat where you can chime in with a webcam or just chatting. There are several on-going forums where you can post your questions, too.

Pole and Aerial

Pole and Aerial, one of the newer online pole dancing lessons hub, offers over 800 lessons, including very advanced for those of you who have built up your skill repertoire! Lessons are also by big names in pole such as Felix Cane, Natasha Wang, Jenyne Butterfly, Oona Kivela and MArlo Fisken, just to name a few. The cost is aorund $30 per month or $250 a year, but when you think of what you're getting, the value exceeds the cost. 

Vertical Dance

Over the last three years that Vertical Dance has been running their online pole dancing lessons, hundreds of instructors and thousands of students have logged in to learn pole dance moves and tricks from KT Coates.

Its actually a great and inexpensive way to learn from one of the best pole instructors in the world! Many students have told let them know that with out the technical advice given in the lessons they would have continued struggling on the moves there were working on.

Are Taking Pole Lessons Online Right for Me?

Learning online is not right for everyone. Live learning at your local pole studio may be your best option.

  • Do you have a hard time keeping motivated? Having to go to a class you paid for is enough motivation for me!
  • Do you not learn visually well? Everyone has a different learning style, and if yours is "hands on" learning style, then live instruction would work better for you and maybe use online lessons to practice.
  • Are you trying to learn a more advanced trick and scared of falling? Going to live instruction at a pole dance class will get you a spotter.
