A stripper pole rental is an eye-catching prop that will definitely draw attention to your event! Do have a big party, expo, convention or media production coming up? Rent a dance pole!
A stripper pole is basically a dance pole usually made out of steel or brass and can be finished or coated with chrome, titanium gold, powder, paint or even silicon. It’s called a “stripper” pole because pole dance came from what we know as ‘strip clubs’ where men and women entertain patrons as “strippers” or exotic dancers and dance on a pole (or without) while seductively removing their clothing. Pole dancing with all of the flips, tricks, climbs and spins as we know it today in the fitness world, originated here and thus the “stripper pole”.
You don’t have to be an exotic dancer or a “stripper” to be able to use a dance pole. You don’t even have to know how to pole dance! But there are some important safety precautions anyone should take when attempting any moves on a dance pole.
The types of stripper pole rentals you will find will be free standing stages and poles. A freestanding dance pole is basically a stage that is assembled with a dance pole that does not need to be attached at the ceiling. The stage is normally designed to hold the pole in place in the center and different companies/manufacturers will have different load/weight capacities so check with your rental place to see what these are.
Quality stages like All Star Stages, Platinum Stages and X-Stages are designed to be able to have a pole dancer be able to climb, spin and do horizontal tricks without his or her safety being compromised.
