Our newest addition to the schedule, Twerk classes with Christina, starts soon! This centuries-old dance form is fun, sexy, and a fabulous workout for legs and core. Come give it a try Sundays at 3:00pm and Thursdays at 7:30pm; you can use your punchcard or just drop in for $15 per class.
Hey all you current and prospective Polemic students, we are transitioning from the old monthly tuition to a new punchcard system. This should make it much easier for you to avoid the hassle of missed classes and make-ups. We will offer a 5-class pole punchcard for $65 and a 10-class pole punchcard for $110. Yoga classes will be able to use the punchcards also, but the rates will be lower and will be announced soon. For those of you who try to pack as many classes as humanly possible into one month, we will continue to have a monthly unlimited option, which must be paid at the beginning of each month. You can still make your payment online through our registration page, just make sure to fill in your name and email address so that we can put it on your punchcard.
Polemic is so pleased to welcome our newest instructor, Emily, who has been teaching yoga all over the world since 2013. Her yoga classes are a wonderful complement for your pole fitness regime, or you can focus solely on yoga. Classes are offered several times during the week and we look forward to adding more. Click here to register!
Our talented Polemic students and instructors are now performing live at Old Nicks Pub (211 Washington St, Eugene) on the 1st Tuesday of every month, 9pm-midnight. This is your chance to come see what pole is all about, to support your friends and family who are pole artists, or to strut your stuff on the stage! The venue is 21+ and tickets are $5 at the door. We will be donating profits to local charities.
We’re taking strength training to the pole! This class is for anyone interested in both increasing strength AND reducing body fat. Anyone can join, regardless of level or previous experience. This is not a pole dance class; however, it will compliment any pole dancers training regimen and serve as a fun way for everyone to achieve their fitness goals! It is high intensity and mainly focuses on body-weight exercises with use of the pole. If you have ankle weights feel free to bring them along.
Best of all, your first class is totally FREE!
We are so pleased to be hosting the amazing Anya Shevelyuk on Friday, July 21st, from 6-8pm. To see Anya in action, check out her 2015 performance reel -- AMAZING!

The workshop is only $50, but space is limited so you must pre-register below.
We are sponsoring a benefit car wash to help fight against child abuse. All proceeds will be donated to the Relief Nursery. Please, please, bring your favorite ride down to Off Kilter Koffee (770 South A Street, Springfield) from 10am-4pm on Saturday, June 24th, and we will wash it for you! If you donate $10 or more, we will give you a coupon to one of these local businesses: Off Kilter Koffee, Polemic Dance & Fitness Studio, The Graphics Shop, or Angkor Cambodian Cafe.

Come check out our new classes for 2017! We have Intro Pole & Choreography for those of you that might be tired of “trick”-focused classes and want to do a little more dance and transition work, also a great choice for newbies to pole. Our other new class is Vertical Barre, a fusion between the more familiar horizontal barre workout and pole. This one will stretch the limits of both your strength and flexibility!
Do you love to dance and learn choreography? Do you want a strength and cardio workout that is energizing and unique? Are you intrigued by the idea of adding a pole to the mix? Then join us for some cheeky fun pole-ography in the Fit & Flirty class!
Over the course of a 6 week session you will learn a 2 minute pole dance routine. Each weekly 60 minute class will break down the choreography bit by bit until you’ve mastered it by our last class. Class size is limited to 5 students, so you will get the individual attention you need to learn and grow as a pole artist.
This class is open to polerinas of all ages and skill levels! Previous pole fitness experience is not required, as the routines will mainly incorporate introductory and beginner spins, pole skills, and floorwork, all of which will be taught in class. But, don’t let that fool you! This will be a fun and challenging workout for even our most Advanced students 🙂
And no need to feel skittish or shy. This class is more flirt and sass than grind and….well, you get the picture 😉 Appropriate attire includes sports bras, tank tops, and shorts. You’ll need some skin to stick to the pole 🙂 Come join us for some high energy strength and cardio choreo on Tuesdays from 9-10am!
The first 6 week session is $90 and will run every Tuesday from September 13-October 18. If this limited-size class fills up, a 2nd class may be opened on Thursdays from 9-10am. Please let us know if you are interested in attending 2 days/week to get double the workout and choreo practice so we can plan accordingly!
