|About Acro Polates|
Gone are the days where pole dancing was seen only in clubs.
Pole dance fitness is now a fast growing trend in Singapore as a legitimate ladies' fitness program. Since its introduction in Singapore about 6 years ago, several pole dance fitness studios have sprout out across the country offering pole dance courses as a healthy dance program for every day women, similar to Yoga and Pilates, and ACRO POLATES is one such fitness studio, the only one currently in Singapore with IPDFA certified instructors (International Pole dance fitness Association).
Why has pole dance fitness become popular and why is it effective? It is like working out in a gym , and a little like gymnastics on a pole. Participants use their own body as weights when they practice certain pole spins and gravity defying inversions. Coupled with the dance element, pole dance fitness offers a wide range of health and fitness benefits such as improving one's core strength, muscular strength endurance and toning, flexibility, motor skills and cardiovascular.
That explains why when many women come into contact with pole dance fitness, they fall in love with it instantly for its challenging acrobatic nature of the sport as well as the grace and fluidity of what comes with the dancing part. Today, ACRO POLATES' students boast an array of housewives, expatriates and corporate ladies including lawyers, doctors, accountants, account managers etc. It is the closest ladies can get to learning gymnastics or acrobat and at Acro Polates, it is never too late to start, as we have also have a handful of ladies in their 40s and 50s taking up the sport too.
When ACRO POLATES opened in 2008, we only had 1 beginner class. Today we have a full range of static pole courses from Level 1 to 8, and spinning pole courses and aerial arts courses, a testimony that Ming, the founder, and Eunice, the chief instructor are changing the lives of many women they tutored. Many of our students have been with us since 1st year, and some are now winners in pole competitions, certified instructors and avid pole-performers (pole-formers, in short).
