Cape Town’s elite pole dance studio, offering group and private pole fitness, pole dance and stretch classes.

Pole dance is a mind-blowing melange of gymnastics, dance and circus elements that delivers a rigorous workout. We are focussed on delivering first class training and our classes cover all elements of pole dance and fitness, including conditioning, spins, tricks, transitional moves, floor work and flexibility, covering every facet of your training needs and enabling us to nurture well-rounded pole dancers.


You will find students from first time beginners (no fitness level or prior experience needed) to advanced levels, ages 5 to 60+ years, men and women of all ethnicities, shapes, and sizes. We welcome you to join our tribe!


Founder and owner of The Pole Project, Kathy Lee, is also a pole athlete and certified pole instructor. She used to work as a corporate lawyer before The Pole Project was born from a desire to teach the passion and spirit of pole dancing. Her love for pole dance has taken her all over the world, where she has trained, taught and performed internationally. Since the studio started in February 2014, The Pole Project tribe has grown into an exceptional collective of strong, fierce and dynamic instructors, consisting of some of the top pole athletes in the country.

Kathy’s vision for the studio, housed in a stunning industrial space, is a magical playground where people from all walks of life can train in pole dance as an outlet for their strength, creativity and agility. There are two studios on the premises, a changing room, shower facilities, a comfortable lounge area and ample secured parking in Buchanan Square.

The studio offers the perfect space for bachelorettes and parties, and our experienced instructors are available for hire as performers.

In addition, Kathy is the brains behind The Pole Factor, a celebrated annual pole dance competition in Cape Town; as well as A Feast of Flight, an annual pole and aerial dance theatre extravaganza and the first of its kind in the country.
