Manifesto

COMMUNITY, TRUTH, PROGRESSION, PLAY, INDIVIDUALISM

Welcome to Oakland Pole & Dance! By stepping through these doors, you aren't just taking a fitness class, you are joining a community. As students we grow together, uplifting each another with encouragement and unconditional support. We move against the grain of how society demands we behave, and practice our art according to five essential values.

Community. We learn from one another, sharing abundantly with the knowledge that we grow with each other.

Truth. We speak of ourselves with respect, celebrating the grace and power that our bodies and minds give us.

Progression. By working with where our bodies are at right now, we build the foundations that will allow us to perform even more gracefully and precisely tomorrow.

Play. We delight in a curious exploration of movement, embracing the pure enjoyment of dance.

Individualism. We observe and learn from one another, trusting that our differences and diversity create strength and beauty.
