Pole has been around for many years, although it is still classed as a fairly new activity, it is thanks to our OG polers in the 80's and those in the strip clubs who brought it into the mainstream. Pole can be many different things, and you can enjoy this activity in multiple of ways including fitness, art, sexy, sport. Pole can be anything you want it to be. We are lucky here at HD&F we have a group of well-rounded instructors who teach all styles. Herts Dance & Fitness have been teaching pole for over 13 years in the community. Pole fitness and dance has expanded across the world and HD&F was one of the very first pole studios in Hertfordshire, after all this time we are still going strong.

With a big mix of classes, you can choose from beginners to advanced and from conditioning to sexy style pole. Choose a style and instructor that suits you.
Aerial Arts has always been seen in the circus tents, or big shows such as cirque du soleil.

All our Aerial Instructors have been training for many years. Our equipment is all fully rated and mats are used in every session.
