About

Studio Spin

We are not just a pole dance studio. We are so much more than that. The apparatus is merely a catalyst for a transformative experience. Our vision is to gently guide you towards discovering your true confidence through movement and encourage unapologetic, authentic expression without judgment of yourself or others in a creative and brave space. Start your journey of self-discovery and growth with us.

Our studio is grounded in three core values: Stronger, Confident and Daring.

Stronger

We value feeling stronger because it indicates that you have more strength today than yesterday. Building strength—physical, emotional, mental and spiritual strength, is a life long journey and lends itself to a healthy and happy life. 

Our classes not only help you build body strength, but your mental strength will increase with each new accomplishment you achieve. A strong, positive mindset is key to persevering through life’s obstacles.

Confident

We value feeling confident because it means having trust in your own ability beyond uncertainty. Feeling confident leads to embracing your authenticity, respecting your own boundaries, and loving yourself first before anyone else.

Dancing builds confidence, creativity and  connection with your body. Dancing is also an outlet for self-expression. Find your true self through dance movement.

Daring

We value feeling daring because this mindset will lead you to reaching outside of your comfort zone without fear. And everything you want and need is outside of your comfort zone. This is the key to self-growth.

Our team of passionate instructors will always encourage you to boldly be yourself, embrace your individuality, and try something new. This is good practice for the real world.

Meet the Tribe

Our passionate team of instructors and facilitators bring their unique personalities, warmth, and expertise to each class experience. All instructors also hold CPR certifications. Our unique, boutique studio is designed to inspire you to live life to the fullest.
