About Pole Athletica

Pole Athletica is committed to helping men and women who are passionate about health, fitness and self-expression discover and achieve their health and fitness goals.

In 2004 Pole Athletica (formerly Studio Verve) was the first studio to bring Pole Dancing lessons to the mainstream fitness industry. From our humble beginnings starting out in a small hired space with 2 poles, to our time providing Pole Classes at Fitness First, we grew from a 10 pole studio to two stunning pole studios and a Stretch studio in a beautiful heritage building in Surry Hills. Our team has helped thousands of men and women achieve skills they never thought possible, which has had a profound impact on their health, fitness, confidence and daily lives as a whole.

We are recognized as the industry leader in our field being featured in multiple mainstream media outlets such as the Seven Network, What’s Good For You and The Sun Herald just to name a few, as well as winning the 2015 Business of the Year at the Pole Sports Industry Awards in London.   

Despite the many successes along the way, what our students cherish the most is the accepting, encouraging, supportive and friendly environment and culture within Pole Athletica. Our teachers encourage students to embrace challenge and grow beyond any perceived limitations. Students are inspired to create goals and realize their dreams. Teachers and students unite as a family to support one another… and hey we’re big on team spirit.

Students come to us wanting to improve their health and fitness and end up gaining so much more.
