The Results - Britain's First Pole Dancing Survey

Posted: May 01 2011


Britain’s first ever pole dancing survey was launched in February 2011 by X Pole International, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of dance poles and new pole fitness company Pole Motion. 

Running from February to 31st March 2011, the survey aimed to find out the main reasons people pole dance, the fitness benefits people have experienced, how many people have lessons or own a pole at home and people’s changing attitudes towards pole dancing.  The survey received over 700 responses and was conducted online and direct at exhibitions such as Clothes Show Live.

Highlights of the survey results:

  • 92% had tried pole dancing before
