7 Must-Haves For Your Pole Dance Bag (and a few nice-to-haves)


How many times have you arrived at the pole studio for class and dug frantically through your bag only to realize that you left your kneepads (or shorts, or shoes, or cheetos) at home?  

The ideal solution to this dilemma is to keep your pole bag stocked with the essentials.


Remember to re-stock your bag every week (on Laundry Day) and you will always be prepared to be at the top of your game every class.

Necessities to bring to every pole class

  1. Shorts (brazil cut is best when practicing pole tricks).

  2. Leggings (great for floorwork and best to keep legs warm for stretch classes).

  3. Knee pads (save yourself the pain and heartache of bruised/battered knees during a floorwork class).

  4. Socks and/or leg warmers (for sliding during splits stretching and other moves in class).

  5. Heels (don’t keep them in the car during the summer months as the heat will melt the shoe's glue).

  6. Grip aid (some days are sweatier and more slippery than others)

  7. Snack (trail mix, whole grain crackers, protein bar) and water.

And some nice-to-haves…
