Taking a pole dancing class at VAMPS in Austin is a fun idea for your bachelorette party or girls weekend. Disclosure: VAMPS provided a complimentary pole dancing party for us. All opinions are my own.
Looking for a bold and sassy activity for a bachelorette party in Austin or unique workout with your girlfriends? Try pole dancing! Before you knock it, read on to see what the experience is like.
I hosted a party at VAMPS in Austin, and my blogger gals and I were so excited to try pole dancing!
VAMPS, which stands for Vertical Aerial Movement and Pole Studio, has all the ingredients for a fun afternoon. No experience is necessary, though it definitely helps to have strong legs and core. The ideal size of a party is six people, and they can accommodate groups up to 14.
VAMPS is located in East Austin on 5th Street. I love that the studio is intimate yet spacious enough for a group. There’s metered street parking around the studio. The studio is also a block away from bars on East 6th Street.
Preparing for Class
Wear workout clothes, preferably shorts. Do not put on any moisturizer before class! This will give you a better grip on the pole. You may also want to bring a water bottle.
Pole Dancing Class
The owner Amber instructed our class, and I love how personalized and encouraging she was. Parties are 75 minutes long and the time flew by! We first started out with light stretching, then we learned a couple of moves to put into a routine. We learned techniques for walking, connecting moves, moving our bodies, and doing spins. We went through the dance routine as we learned each new move, and then we put it all together at the end!
I had done one pole dancing class before and was nervous that this class would be awkward (mostly because me trying to be sexy is awkward, haha), but my sassy gals rocking it and Amber’s encouraging instruction helped the experience become absolutely fun.
What’s not pictured here is when the lights are off and the spotlights are spinning. So fun!
Since you’ll be using muscles you might not usually use, you may be sore the next day, but it’s nothing strenuous. A pole dancing class is a great idea for a bachelorette party or girls’ get-together!
