Tease Students Offer Advice for Handling Pole Dancing Queries

Jessica“You’re taking WHAT kind of class?”

“Pole Dancing? Like Stripper Class?”

If you’ve taken a pole dancing class or are considering a class but aren’t sure how people will react, we’ve got a few pointers.

We recently asked the students at Tease Dance and Fitness how they’ve responded to friends or family’s queries into their workout.

Here are a few responses:

People are always really shocked when I tell them and say it doesn’t seem like something I’d do. I tell them “well, I guess you don’t know me as well as you thought you did”

It builds so much confidence and body positivity which is helpful for my job working in mental health. Especially with coworkers I build on how powerful it could be for some of our sexual assault survivors to connect to their sexuality as something they can have control of and be proud of.

I always say that Pole Dancing is the most giving sport for women. It does not discriminate in the least bit. Women of all color, shapes, size are welcome and loved. It’s about building confidence and strength and coming to terms with your own sexuality. You are your biggest critic. And there’s so many variations of pole work.

I stopped worrying what others thought a long time ago, I think that is one of the steps of pole dancing. You share info, but you can’t change a persons perception, and if my honest testimonial isn’t enough for them,well so be it.

I call it pole dance fitness which seems to work well. Really most people find it interesting and if they don’t I show them a video…that usually does the trick.

Where to Buy Cool Stuff for Your First Pole Fitness Class

What to wear to Pole Class at TeaseWe’re starting a series on the Tease Blog: The Beginners Guide to Tease Dance and Fitness

Whether you’re considering joining a class or have recently started, the Beginners Guide will help you transition into a fun-loving Pole Princess before you know it.

One of the first things you find out when starting a class at Tease is that the clothes are part of the fun. Whether you’re taking a pole fitness class, Burlesque, Aerial hoops, silks or Booty Boot Camp, finding clothes that are both comfortable and fun can be a challenge if you don’t know where to look.

We recently asked our Tease Ambassadors what their favorite pole clothes were and where to find them.

Sexy bras for the curvy girl: Several women agreed Lane Bryant had a great selection of sexy yet well-made bras. Amazon also scored well too.

For the Burlesque girls, Lovers Lane is a great place to get fishnets, fringe skirts, gloves, bustiers and wigs.

If you’ve taken at least one pole fitness class, you’ll know the importance of really good shorts. Our girls had a lot of recommendations:

At lease one instructor swears by Under Armour Studio Lux Shorty. According to her, “They are the best pole shorts EVER and offer a higher waist for either tummy control or just for not mooning friends”



Zweet Sport received rave reviews from pole instructors as did, Artista Activewear,  Onzie,  3wishes,  Lululemon,  and Mika Yoga Wear.

Check out Kup My Kakez shorts on Easy. According to one instructor “Size down; they run big. They have nice coverage and a nice waistband.”

If you’re in the market for sport bras that cover the more sizable ta-ta’s, Mika offers a great selection as does Road Runner Sports
