Pole dancing

Welcome to NTU Pole Dance!

Life is better upside down! At least that's what we think. Suitable for all shapes, sizes and abilities, pole is a fun and intense way to exercise. Building strength, improving flexibility and improving your mental health. With nationally titled coaches, regular classes and super supportive community you'll be climbing, spinning and inverting in no time. With weekly socials, termly showcases and the option to start competing you'll never be short of ways to get involved.


As one of the biggest sports clubs at NTU we have something for everyone. A membership involves access to as many training sessions as you would like. We cater from beginner to advanced. With our flexible approach to training, you are not obliged to come every single week like some other clubs, so if you can’t make it one week it is not an issue.
For those who wish to take their training to a more serious level, we offer the opportunity compete yearly at the inter-university pole dancing championships and local competitions as well as performing in our showcases. Last year we had our most successful competition season to date with a total of 10 awards being won by our competitors! One of our members also competed in the final of a national competition.

As well as our classes, Trent Pole offers a range of social activities, so you can get to meet many more people outside of classes and across NTU. Our socials range from skill swaps with other sports clubs, meals out, movie nights and (of course) a weekly trip to Ocean nightclub.

Training takes place at Lee Westwood Sports Centre, City Dance studio and PoleKat Aerial Arts Academy.

Our sessions are as follows:
Monday: 11:00-13:00 (PoleKat)
Tuesday: 14:00-17:00 (Lee Westwood Sports Centre)
Thursday: 19:00-22:00 (City dance studio)
Friday: 15:00-17:00 and 18:00-20:00 (City dance studio)
Saturday: 14:00-16:00 (City dance studio)

Our head coach is Kat Bailey
