"U.S. Pole Dance Federation (USPDF) was founded in the beginning of 2008 as the interest of pole dancing grew significantly in the United States. Today's pole dancing is a sensual athletic art form, where creativity meets physical strength. This modern form of pole dancing started internationally in the 90's. In the beginning of 2000, an inspired U.S. introduced pole dancing in dance studios and fitness facilities. It's significant to understand that pole dancing is not stripping. This misconception prevents pole dancing from becoming something every woman should be able to enjoy. Pole dancing is a sensual athletic dance form that demands coordination, flexibility and physical strength.
As a pole dance federation, our vision is to create a network for pole dancers and studio owners in the U.S. This network will provide a structured standard in the industry and serve as a source to exchange ideas, and to give feedback among pole dance instructors. As a result, USPDF and their members will further develop a safe and efficient environment for women to take class in.
USPDF will also be hosting competitions along with workshops and panel discussions, including topics such as safety, teaching techniques, fitness and dance, and style. We understand that pole dancing is a highly physically demanding exercise, which is why we wish to bring awareness of how to benefit from this activity."
