Pole Dancing For MEN

More men these days are jumping up on the pole dancing wagon. Our friends over at Stripper Pole Rental.com recently put out a list of the male pole dancers on youtube. Check that out HERE.

Knowing the business of pole dancing and the amount of upper body strength that is needed to be a fluid pole dancer makes it really interesting when looking at men doing the dancing and not the watching 🙂

For a primarily female driven sport and exercise demographic, many pole dance studios don’t have a co-ed or men’s class available. For some, it’s that there isn’t for such a market of men wanting to take pole dancing lessons; for others: well, it’s called discrimination.

I know of men that have even called a pole dance studio in their local area and they were either hung up on, or in their opinion, not treated nicely on the phone.

Either way, if men get into pole dancing in large numbers; ladies look out, cause genetically they may own that sport as well.

As so many have pondered taking up that ad that they saw in the back of the community newspaper that reads: “Pole Dance Classes Now Available”. Where some aspiring entrepeneur has taken on a new career teaching the art of the pole dance for an intermediate price of FREE (for your first class of course)–then to the $25 sessions or the bundle packages to get your abs and behind, back on track (thanx Oprah).

Where on any givin’ day in any givin’ pole dance studio you’ll see 40 somethings trying to develop that tremendous amount of upper body strength needed to hang weightlessly against the pole. But what if your a little intimidated? What if you don’t want to “expose” yourself making an attempt of what everyone, including Martha Stewart, is calling the next big thing in exercise. Don’t worry, everyone feels the same way when they first start.

But you can do a little research on pole dancing before taking the plunge to a pole dancing studio–

Before investing $400+ into the hottest new pole for the pros–or dumping your hard earned cash (or husbands) into the next piece of garbage that ANY Ex-Playboy Model may be promoting–maybe you should consider checking out the free-est place to catch up on your pole dancing chops. YouTube!

YouTube has tons of videos related to pole dancing. Even pole dancing mishaps. Some are good, some, not so good. But a few pole dancing youtube vids have really good info that your instructor may have forgot about.

Bonus Note: If you aren’t ready to invest into new pole dance equipment, you should consider a rental. You can rent a dance pole/stage from All Star Stages, complete with delivery and setup + the return pickup in Los Angeles, Miami, New York–even Cleveland!


Now this is where we insert the DISCLAIMER: The people on youtube may or may not be professionals. You should seek out your own physical trainer first to get educated on what muscles should be stretched BEFORE and AFTER your pole dancing home lesson attempts. We (as in All Star Stages) make portable pole dance equipment and house professionals that dance, but do not make any claim, promoting, or advertising anyone’s youtube vid in particular. Taking a class in pole dancing is always the best–but this is just for YOUR INFORMATION ONLY. And don’t feel dumb your first time into a pole dancing studio–everyone does.

Now with that out of the way–here’s a quick list of 31 pole dance videos that hang out on youtube. They are in no particular order.

If you see something that doesn’t make sense–or you as the pro consider it mis-info, comment below. And the same goes for if you see something you like: comment below for god’s sake–your reading the blog, you should know to comment by now–ENJOY!!!!!
