The Pole Dance Community (PDC) is an advisory body for the UK and international pole dancing industry. We offer advice to pole dance schools and individuals who choose to pole dance for fitness and recreation. Pole dancing is a modern day phenomenon undertaken by both men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes.

The Pole Dance Community consists of a group of independent pole dance schools, pole dancing instructors, pole dance competition promoters and pole dancing photographers who democratically follow a code of conduct and who work together to provide best practice.

The Pole Dance Community site is administered by Sid and Sam Remmer.

The Pole Dance Community (PDC) provides a series of codes of conduct promoting good practice within the pole dancing industry.

Compliance with these codes allows industry professionals to proudly display the PDC Approved logo.

How can the PDC benefit me?

If you are a school / teacher then the PDC can provide help and support as well as guiding you towards cheaper insurances, free promotion and marketing, acces to the Advancment and Accreditation Programme, free on-line syllabus, the latest news and updates and so much more.

If you are a promoter then the PDC can promote your event on the newsflash sections of the site and can link directly to your website.

If you are a student then you can get advice on choosing a school, and you can report any bad experiences you have had as a student. You can check out the fabulous PDC approved videos rather than spending hours trawling through YouTube. You can also view our free on-line pole dancing syllabus and use our Pole Dance Shop to buy tried and tested pole dancing products.

How do I become a PDC approved school?

To become a PDC approved school you simply click the 'Register Your School' link and follow the onscreen instructions.  You may apply online or by post.  There is a one-off £10 application fee which covers the PDC's time taken to review your application.  Please note that this is a non-refundable fee, regardless of the outcome of your application.

Once your application has been approved, you will be able to use the PDC logos and will have access to the Approved Schools only forum.  You will also qualify for the PDC instructors insurance.  As an Approved school, you may integrate the AAP syllabus and conduct gradings if you wish.
