The Pole Project is one of South Africa's largest and most successful pole dance studios. Based in Cape Town, we teach group and private lessons in pole fitness, pole dance and stretch classes. The idea was born from a desire to teach the passion and spirit of pole dancing as an exciting way to explore the art of the dance, and as a form of exercise to improve fitness, tone, strength and endurance.
Founded by Kathy Lee in 2014, the vision for the studio was to create not only an "aerial arts playground" but also a space for empowerment. The Pole Project tribe has grown into a collective of strong, fierce and dynamic instructors, consisting of some of the top pole athletes in the country.
Because The Pole Project believes in a holistic approach to training, classes offered include pole fitness, power (strength conditioning), flexibility, exotic pole, pole flow and yoga classes.
In addition, Kathy is the brains behind The Pole Factor, a celebrated annual pole dance competition in Cape Town; as well as A Feast of Flight, an annual pole and aerial dance theatre extravaganza and the first of its kind in the country.
