Even when your city is flush with fitness options for spin, yoga, and even stretching, boutique pole dancing classes are usually more difficult to pin down.
But it’s worth putting in the extra work to find one because a pole dancing class can be a transformative form of exercise in more ways than one. Physically, it’ll help strengthen your total body—especially your core, arms, and back. Plus, many fitness studios and pole dancing devotees also champion the modality for its confidence-boosting side effects.
And as the boutique fitness bubble expands to more places than New York City and Los Angeles, it’s becoming easier to find pole dancing classes in other places, like Houston, Texas for example. Below are five studios in H-Town to take pole dancing classes—just don’t forget your sports bra and bike shorts.

They also cover a diverse range of pole and pole-related workouts from beginner spin pole classes to Pollet (a combo of pole dancing and ballet).
