Pole Dancing Apps - Pole Dancing at your fingertips!

Ever wonder how to become a better pole dancer? Or, maybe you want to learn some new moves but not sure where to start?

Well, if you are not inside a classroom with one of our amazing instructors, try some of these smart phone apps!
iphone pole app
Pocket Pole Studio is one of the highest rated Pole apps you can get! The full version is $6.99 (iTunes & Android), and a “streaming” online version for $1.99 but there is also a lite version so you can get a glimpse of how it works! This app is based out of the UK, and my-oh-my do they love pole dancing! So you know this app is good!

Pocket Pole Studio has lots of great features! You can find every move and watch them on videos that show you how! They also have an online store for some great pole wear!
iphone pole dance
Pole Dancer Pro is another great app available on iTunes. The full version is FREE (my favorite word)! Every move is shown by playing a video with step-by-step instructions. It's great for those who tend to miss a step or somehow mess up since it shows the moves so clearly!
Diva fit iphone dance
One more that I have found very helpful is the DivaFit (iTunes). It is $4.99 and they also offer a “lite” version. This app offers a lot of great videos for spins, combos, tricks, transitions, and even stretches. You can even chose your level and check off moves you've learned so you can master them all!
Flirty fit iphone dance
Maybe you need a little help with your sexy chair dancing skills? Well, there is an app for that! Try out FlirtyFit. It is only $1.99! They also have a “lite” version, but don't be cheap! Just buy the full version because you only get two exercises and two moves in the “lite” version!

This app is great if you can't make it to Urban Studios chair dancing classes! It shows you a bunch of different moves and even shows you exercises to be all loosey goosey for all those great moves!

No matter what you use to find new moves, make sure you still come to our classes to make sure you have a certified instructor making sure your moves are correct so you won't have an injury!
Happy Pole Dancing!

Aerial Silks... almost, but not quite

I want to give everyone a quick update on our aerial silks classes…

I have analyzed the different types of rigging that would work for our silks classes and have some options we could pursue, but I also uncovered some issues with the structure of the building we are in. Even though our ceilings are the hardest concrete my contractors have ever witnessed, I still don't feel 100% comfortable anchoring our silks through it knowing the roof above it needs work. I absolutely will not compromise on safety.

So...while the silks are here and ready play with, we have decided to hold off on these classes until we find a facility that is more structurally appropriate for this type of activity. I will keep you all posted on where we decide to offer our silks classes. For now, keep rockin our poles and flirty fitness classes!

Coming soon to Urban Studio

Resolution Reality-Check

It's 17 days into the New Year....Are you one of the over 50% of American's who resolved to slim down, tone up, or just feel better about your body? If so...how's that resolution coming along?

Well, here's some motivating news that might get you going.   *Drum Roll*

Women who participate in group classes have a better chance of achieving their body goals! (Especially Pole-fitness classes!)

Not only do women in group classes get a better body, but they also gain friends, confidence, and some new tricks along the way! What's better than losing weight, gaining self esteem, and gaining great gal-friends? How about Ryan Reynolds naked in your bed? Well, duh! But seriously though, get Ryan Reynolds naked in my bed ;)

Anywho, when participating in a group exercise class, you tend to push yourself harder. Why? Doing things as a group gives you a psychological bond because the group is going through and doing the same thing and likely have similar goals. Not only do you push yourself more, you have a stronger commitment to do it more often and not give up. Working out alone often gives you opportunities to cut it short or just give it up all together. You have a greater sense of accountability and therefore come to classes more often.

Still not motivated? How about paying for classes? Women who pay for a class or membership are much more likely to shed some pounds. Memberships make you feel like you'd be wasting money if you didn't go and participate.

So get out there and join a group fitness class. Become that lean, mean, hot-girl machine you always dreamed of being and feel sexy doing it!
These are just a few of the group classes that Urban Studio has to offer: Beginner Pole Dance, Exotic Chair Dance, Booty Pop & Clap, Sexy Flexy Stretch, Intermediate/Advanced Pole Dance, Booty Pop & Pole, Zumba, Video Vixen and more!

Pole dancing parties are super fun and the perfect way to celebrate with the girls before you say I DO! What is a pole party? Visit our website for complete package descriptions, pricing and scheduling info.

Step 1: Pick a theme for your party:

A few theme Ideas for the Nashville Bride...
  • Sexy in the city - a girls weekend of wining, dining and exploring
  • Lingerie/Sin City - naughty attire (corsets, satin and lace)
  • Bright and Beautiful 80's - neon wigs and fishnets
  • Classy and Sassy - black cocktail dresses and martinis
  • Nash Trash - gettin' shitty in music city! Matching shirts and shot glasses
  • Yeeee Haw! Cowgirl's last ride before she's a bride - Honky tonks and bull riding

Step 2: Find a sexy invitation:

 ~ Evite offers a decent selection of e-card bachelorette party invitations. Not only are the designs sleek, but you can also track attendance and easily update information.

Step 3: Attire Preparations:

Decide on the theme attire and fill everyone else in on the details. Remember to wear something you can move around in.
