UK Pole Dance Day 2012 - The latest news and pole dancing events.
It's nearly time for UK Pole Dance Day and this year, we hope more pole schools than ever will take part, holding showcases, open days, taster sessions and workshops to show the wider public that pole dance is a beautiful, graceful, powerful art that deserves respect.
Unfortunately, due to lack of sponsorship, we have decided not to run a London showcase, but we are hoping to make this a bi-annual event, and we are already discussing funding options for 2013.
Since founding UKPDD in 2009, the Equity Pole Dancers' Working Party has been delighted with the level of support the pole dancing community has given the event and this year, we are offering a limited number of exclusive UKPDD vests to those hosting events. All you have to do to get your hands on one of these beauties is email us with details of your UKPDD event and a posting address.
In return, we'd like a picture of you wearing it on UKPDD!

These moves are great for people who haven’t been poling for a long time but are also great for the super advanced students who have never done any doubles work before. This class will teach you the basics of doubles before moving onto the hardcore doubles tricks in the second half. Don’t panic if you don’t have a doubles partner, we will find you one, or if you like Dan and Stevie will be more than happy to join in.
