your questions

Do your courses take place in the studio or only online?

Yes, we are BACK!

Our pole courses take place in the studio, with limited participants and only one person per pole. At the same time, we offer the courses online – if you have a pole at home or the class is not on the pole – you are welcome to take part from the comfort of your home! Click here to book.

We take high security measurements to maintain the health of our students and our team. All poles are at least 2 m apart and are disinfected after each class. We also ask all of our visitors to read our hygiene rules carefully before visiting the studio. Don’t forget to bring your own personal towel!

How do I book your classes?

Use our online booking system: scroll through to find the class you wish to join, select your product and check out. Your place is reserved and you may still cancel it  24 hours previous to a studio or online class date. If you are not sure which level or style you need, feel free to ask us!

How early in advance should I book a class?

We recommend booking spots for high-demand classes (particular evening classes), up to 3 weeks in advance. Too soon? Don’t worry! You can always cancel your booking online as long as it’s 24 hours before the class. By booking early you have your spot reserved + have the flexible option to cancel your booking in case of change of plans. Otherwise, you can always try to book later or reserve a spot for the waiting list.

Please note all bookings must be cancelled online according to the T&C within the cancellation period (24 hours in advance). Cancellations done only per email are not taken into account.

I am on the waiting list for a class. What does that mean?

If you book a spot in the waiting list, you will get notified once someone canceled their spot and you the spot will be reserved for you automatically. If you get a spot in the class you will be notified per email with a title ‘You have been moved up from the waiting list <class details>‘. That means there is now a spot reserved for you in the class. Make sure to allow email notifications from us so you don’t miss the update! If you don’t get the spot in the class the purchased credit of course will still be kept on your profile and you may use it to book another class.

In which language do your classes take place?

Our classes take place primarily in English, however if all members in the class speak/ understand German it may take place in German. In any case our team is happy to translate any instructions when requested to.

Still not sure? Ask us. We are happy to help and support you with the beginning of your pole journey 🙂

I've NEVER done Pole before. Do you have any classes I can join?

Absolutely! For your first Pole class(es) we recommend joining our Intro to Pole (level 0-1) classes, which take place every Monday-Saturday
In these classes we will teach you the basics of Pole Dance – starting from pole walks, transitions, turns and spins. You will build up muscle memory, strength and stamina which will allow you to later on progress to higher level of Pole classes. To book your first class go to our online booking system, choose one of our Intro to Pole classes and complete your booking. If it’s your first visit to Pole Flow you may check out using a single trial credit (15€/13€), or a trial package (4 classes in 4 weeks; 49€). 

How do I find your pole dance studio?

Our studio is located in Ziegrastr. 11, 12057 Berlin. If you come by S-Bahn, take the exit towards Sun Bridge, go over the bridge and then turn left into Ziegrastraße. You walk straight on to Ziegrastraße 11 (NOT 13!). There you should see a small sign on the wall that says “Pole Flow Berlin”. Turn right and keep walking until you reach our building after about 150m on the left side (there is also a sign on the front door). Our studio is on the first floor on the left.

What should I bring to the pole dance class?

Comfortable sports pants to warm up, shorts to practice on the pole, a small towel and water. Avoid using body lotions, oils, or hand creams on the day you do pole dance. Pole dance high heels are recommended for Sensual pole courses (ask us where you can get professional heels!). If you don’t have shoes, you can still join all of our classes. For every pole flow course we recommend long pants, socks and knee pads.

How often should I practice pole dance?

We recommend a combination of pole, strength and flexibility training at least 2-3 times a week at the beginning. Later on if you have the time and capacity you can increase the frequency of your visits, but always make sure to get enough rest in between 🙂

I keep slipping off the pole! Am I doing something wrong?

Good grip on the pole requires both strength and technique. The more you come to classes and train, the more your grip strength develops and the better you can support yourself on the pole. That being said, there are different materials for the grip aid that we recommend under special conditions (sweaty palms, overly dry skin etc). You can see the full list here.

I am not that flexible. Can I still pole dance?

YES! only babies are born flexible;) We will build it up step by step. While bendy pole tricks look beautiful and impressive, most of them can be tried without exceptional flexibility skills. Nevertheless, we recommend taking flexibility courses to improve freedom of movement, joint health and mobility.

I am not that strong. Can I still pole dance?

Of course! Strength is built up gradually. The more you practice pole the more you will find your body is getting stronger and fitter. For your first steps on the pole we focus on technique, building muscle memory and coordination. There are no strength ​pre-requirements, but you will notice that over time you will naturally develop more strength than you ever thought was possible!

I am not that thin. Can I still pole dance?

YES! Pole dance is for ANY size and shape. Try it for yourself!

I'm not 16. Can I still try pole dancing?

YES! Pole dance is for ANY size and shape. Try it for yourself!

I'm a man. Can I still pole dance?

Of course! We are very happy to see men (and any gender what-so-ever) in our classes. You could concentrate more on acrobatic moves or find your inner goddess in our sensual dance classes. Same goes for humans of all genders 🙂

I'm non-binary/trans/genderqueer. Can I still pole dance?

Not a single doubt! Pole Flow is a home for humans of ALL genders. We can’t meet you and discover your unique personality and queerness.

Your satisfaction and well-being is at our highest priority, and we are always open to receive feedback and special requests from you.

Huong (she/her)

Huong has been dancing since she was a child.

At the age of 8 she joined a Vietnamese dance group based in Berlin and performed at various events (e.g. Karneval der Kulturen). She then moved on to dance Hip Hop for a year and paused to focus on school and college after. During her studies in 2015 she randomly stumbled upon a pole dancing video and immediately looked up pole classes not knowing how much this step will change her life. From then on she fell in love and took all the pole classes she could afford in Berlin until she started teaching others in 2018. She now focuses more on how to improve as an instructor in order to provide a safe space for everyone who joins her classes.

Dance style:
– Heels flow
– Sensual flow
– Freestyle improvisation

Valeriia Melnyk

Valeriia is a professional Pole Dancer from Kyiv, Ukraine who has relocated to Berlin. She has over 8 years of experience as a pole dancer and is a certified instructor by the Ukrainian Pole Sport Federation. She has also participated and made it to finals in numerous Ukrainian championships and festivals.

‘’Dance is an expression that comes from inside. I am convinced that everyone can learn to live their feelings, explore their emotions and reach heightened states through dance. I am ready to share with you my knowledge, energy and, of course, my sensual choreography.’’

The focus of classes will be about sensual embodiment and the feeling of the dance. Valeriia will show you how to create lightness, airiness and beautiful aesthetic lines while dancing. We will focus on turning our attention inward, listen to our bodies and feel how the body wants to manifest itself through dance. It will be sensual, lyrical and feminine“.


Luigi is an Italian pole dance coach, teacher and performer. As a child he studied classical ballet in Bergamo and ever since he has been interested in mastering body expression techniques.

He has been practicing Ashtanga yoga for years, working on both flexibility and acrobatic movements. Additionally he studied contortion techniques with Sofia Venanzetti as well as acrobatics in the Gymnastics school of Treviolo in Northern Italy.

Luigi discovered pole dance in 2016 and it was love at first sight. Soon after this, he became a pole instructor and, after winning multiple national and international competitions, he became one of the members of the Italian Pole Sport National team.He also mastered the flying pole (a Chinese pole suspended on the ceiling) and performed with it in the aerialist circus company “Acrovertical.”

Luigi teaches pole sport techniques, contemporary pole movements and dynamic/acrobatic transitions on the pole.

“Art is a powerful form of expression. In my life, I often couldn’t find the right words to express my deepest emotions. Pole dance gives me the freedom to really be myself, by helping me to find the strength to cope with my fears. As a teacher, I like to enable my students to overcome their limits, discover new skills and polish flowing moves, without ever forgetting that it is a way to express ourselves.”

Maria has recently joined the PFB team as a pole dance instructor and is happy to share her passion with her students.

“I fell in love with movement when I experienced firsthand the mental and physical benefits of working out. In 2017 my passion drove me to start a Fitness and Health Youtube channel, which allowed me to broaden my knowledge through content creation and research. Curiosity kept me learning about new forms of movement until I finally tried Pole Dance in 2018, and I was hooked immediately. Imagine coming from a very repressive, conservative, chauvinistic country and suddenly stepping into a place where nobody is shamed, where sensuality is celebrated, diversity is honored, and also… people are STRONG AF!!! I was in awe!

Since that day, pole dancing has been helping me connect with my body, reject old belief systems and reframe my own ideas of sensuality, sexuality, and freedom.

I got the opportunity to become a teacher in 2021, and I feel blessed to provide that same safe and encouraging space for others to get stronger, shine bright, and enjoy movement.”

Trisha is a professional pole dancer and teacher, originating from Bavaria and since 2022 based in Berlin.

‘’I started my dance journey as a kid taking ballet lessons. My ballet journey lasted roughly 10 years and built the base of my movement as of today. After all those years I got sick of the rigid rules of ballet and wished to explore more. After finding Daria Che on Instagram in 2018 I started taking pole lessons in Munich, where I was based. It started as a hobby but quickly with the love for pole turned into a profession.

Since then I have developed my skills in heels, spinning pole and static flow/ static rotation. I have taken classes with highly skilled trainers such as Estefania Jimenez, Marion Crampe, Lorenza Perrone and of course Daria Che as well. Now I am excited to share my knowledge with my students. I love to focus on details, instead of wild tricks and complicated shapes. I love to keep it playful yet clean and accurate, even with the most basic climbs. Let’s explore and play with the details. I can’t wait to dance with you!’’

Seliquere, Latin for “to be fluid”, lives up to her name by oozing across the floor, up and down the pole, and into your heart. She combines flowy and drippy movement with high-energy bursts of fun and dynamics. 

With a movement background in dance, gymnastics, and acrobatics, and a theoretical background in physiology, anatomy, and kinesiology, Seliquere places great importance on understanding the interaction between our body (muscle, bone, tendon, ligaments) and the movement we create. She emphasizes safety and longevity when it comes to dancing, and hopes all her students can continue to create beautiful art for decades to come. 

You’ll find lots of enthusiasm, texture enunciation, and fluidity in her class, as well as a safe place to explore new movements, make mistakes, and ask questions. A proud member of the queer community, Seliquere asserts that pole, sensual movement, and dancing is for everybody, every gender identity, and every sexual orientation. There is no greater joy than authentic self-expression, and she hopes you can find that joy with her during class.

Amissa is a mover, performer and monkey at heart. They lived their early human-years always dancing and playing in youth theater groups.

Amissa’s love for pole dancing started when they just arrived in Berlin. After just the first class they were immediately in love. Now, they realize it has meant a lot more than just finding an amazing hobby. It also made them find their way back to dancing, performing, creating. It opened doors to a new world, such as the world of aerial arts and circus arts in general. Amissa is very driven to live their life exploring movement in its broadest sense. They are always eager to learn more and more!

As a teacher, Amissa is passionate to pass on what has brought them so much joy. Every class, the students should feel good about themselves. Creating a safe(r) and wholesome space is much more important than pushing students to do difficult tricks!
