Grab hold of the stainless steel and let yourself go

Irish Pole Dance Academy is a boutique pole dance studio in Dublin for those who want to put the fun back into fitness and find a new sense of strength and confidence.

An inclusive community of inspired individuals who lift each other up and hold each other accountable:

Our aim is to empower you to become the best possible version of yourself and to let go of the limiting beliefs that no longer serve you through our structured group fitness classes, non-judgmental environment and friendly world-class instructors.
Whether you're a first-timer or have taken some pole dancing classes elsewhere, we have a class suitable for you. Our 'Introduction to Pole Dance' course is the perfect place to start if you are new to pole, or you can join one of many ongoing weekly classes applicable to your level. You'll find all class info here!
Let's make training at home easier and more fun. Join our pre-recorded guided lessons in floorwork, chair dance, pole dance tricks, choreography, and conditioning exercises, for all levels of ability, to help you stay strong, flexible and more sane through the pandemic. No pole required: we have plenty of non-pole classes too!

    Everyone is so encouraging, everyone cheers each other on and shares in each others’ successes. I would always have issues before with insecurity and comparing myself to other women, and that’s completely come undone here. Everyone moves at their own pace, and it’s amazing to see everyone develop their own styles and unique flairs when it comes to their dancing. I feel like I have genuinely made some friends for life here, and I’m so grateful for that.

    To anyone who is thinking of joining, I could not recommend IPDA enough. It’s changed my perspective on my body, it has been good for my anxiety to get out and try something new, and I’m now part of a very special community that encourages women and men to be who they are and express themselves in their own style. IPDA gives you the stepping stones to be amazing at pole, even with no background in dance. I can say without hesitation I have never felt better or more confident in my own skin.

    At first I thought it wasn’t for me but I enjoyed that [first] lesson so much that I didn’t want to give up; I wanted to be good at it and I’m glad for the decision I made more than a year ago. I feel a lot stronger and I’m more confident, not only in my body but in my possibilities as well. The way I see my body is different, I don’t judge myself as hard as I was doing before and I’m really happy to see the improvement in the other awesome members of IPDA.
