COMMUNITY, TRUTH, PROGRESSION, PLAY, INDIVIDUALISM
Our studio manifesto outlines our mission statement for how and why we operate. We all teach a little bit differently, which is what makes our course selection unique and amazing, but work to promote the same goals to create a consistency across classes and leave you with the confidence that you are getting the Pole & Dance experience.
By stepping through the doors at a Pole & Dance studio you aren’t just taking a fitness class, you are joining a community. As students, we grow together – uplifting each other with encouragement and unconditional support. We practice our art according to five essential values.
We learn from one another, sharing abundantly with the knowledge that we grow with each other.
We observe and learn from one another, trusting that our differences and diversity create strength and beauty.
We speak of ourselves with respect, celebrating the grace and power that our bodies and minds give us.
We delight in a curious exploration of movement, embracing the pure enjoyment of dance.
By working with where our bodies are at right now, we build the foundations that will allow us to perform even more gracefully and precisely tomorrow.
Our studio is 1600 sq ft with a main pole space for pole classes, a retail space, and a curtained-off changing area.
Our poles are 10.5′ tall, 45mm, and stainless steel.
We are located street level at 1636 University Ave in Berkeley, CA. Please knock on the door upon arrival to be let in.
There is metered street parking on University Ave, 2 hour residential parking on Jefferson Ave, and unlimited street parking on California Street.
