I was going through old photos again and found some fun ones that prompted this post!
If you’re looking for a fun, unique activity in Vegas (or an interesting way to work off those extra gourmet calories from the casinos), look no further!
You’ve probably seen random articles about pole dancing as a sport or work out. While it’s definitely starting to build up around the country, here in Vegas, it’s been around for a while. In fact, I met one of my closest friends in a class about 8 years ago when she was teaching at one of the studios. I loved it so much, I used to go every week.
There are a bunch of places in town that do the classes both on and off the Strip. It’s a fun activity for bachelorette parties or girl groups just looking for an interesting work out. I’ve brought a bunch of friends with me and it’s always been a good time.
A few things to know:
No experience or skill level is required. It’s mostly for fun but it is a full body workout too.
Don’t wear pants or leggings. A lot of pole tricks involve sticking your skin to the pole and it doesn’t work if you’re skin isn’t touching the pole (yes they clean those poles).
On that note, don’t wear lingerie to the class. I’ve seen people do it and it’s kind of gross. The pole is clean but when you’re sharing a pole with strangers, don’t do gross things.
Don’t be shy. It’s just girls and besides, it’s just Vegas.
