These pole dancers are redefining their fitness regime by pole dancing and they are breaking down the social norms of what ‘fitness’ is at the same time. They are mums, dads and outright ninjas!

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love this! I’m now 60, started pole dancing at 54, having been a couch potato for the previous 20 years or so. Hated sports at school, but loved pole dance from my very first spin. I started pole after seeing a demonstration of pole dancing and thinking it looked like fun. It never occurred to me that I wouldn’t be able to do it. Now, I can’t imagine ever giving it up!

    • I took an intro class at 59 and thought I could learn at home. I fractured my collarbone in 2 places trying a Superman last month. When this heels I think I’ll go back to class. I’ll be 60 this summer.

  2. TY so much for featuring me in this article, I am so humbled to be a part of a community of passionate dancers who respect and encourage each other!

  3. This is a great representation of beauty and grit! I wish there had been more people of color. I’m an African American woman from the US, 45, and took up pole dancing last year. There is such amazing diversity in the pole dance community. We really do come in 31 Flavors…and then some! It would’ve been lovely to see that represented more in this article!

  4. I am so heartened with the knowledge that we are many , senior polers. I am Filipina by ethnic origin and started poling in Deçember 2015 at age 59. I had no athletic experiençe, can’t even bike, swim poorly, no dançe background too, aside from occasional gym workouts, but here I am past 60, and enjoying my pole journey. I go to once a week class and practiçe at home twiçe a week. I just added flexibility training to my pole regimen and bought a DVD on lyrical dançe. Can’t wait to do and show off a beginner-intermediate pole routine.

  5. I hope to join this list in 4 short more years, but I can think of several others that should be on this list now. Patty Zikmund and Susan Ohlenkamp

  6. Well done everyone. I too is a mature age pole dancer . I’m 50, started poling at 42. No dance, gymnastics, sports or fitness background. Since I started I have competed 7 times. I haven’t won anything yet but the transformation in all affects has been amazing. More power to us mature aged polers. ❤️
