About Swansea pole and aerial academy


Our story
 Our Mission

Alan and Rosie founded Swansea Pole and Aerial because they loved pole dancing so much, they wanted to make a business where others could learn to enjoy themselves as much as they did.

We are Swansea’s only academy dedicated to providing Pole dance and Aerial tuition. Our aims are for others to enjoy this sport as much as we do.

It’s important everyone understands that you don’t have to be a special shape, super fit, or super-strong even to do pole. There is something for every level

The Studio


The Mond Building in Swansea has been redeveloped and the latest equipment installed to give you great facilities to train in.

For many years, the Mond building has been a dance hall. It has now been specially adapted for pole and aerial training with new equipment in readiness for our launch.

Our pole fitness studio is set in the beautiful Mond Buildings in Swansea city centre. The building dates back to 1911 as you can see from it’s beautiful architectural features. The building has a stunning marble staircase leading up to our stunning studio space, complete with wide bay windows letting in plenty of natural light. This is especially pleasant in summer when we often get to dance in a multitude of sunset colours!

We currently have six chrome stage poles in the studio, one of them is slightly skinnier than the others- which can suit different dancers.

The aim with the studio is to eventually equip it with a rig which will allow aerial hoop and aerial silks classes to take place. Once the rig is installed we will also be able to offer floor to ceiling poles, which mean we can teach you even more amazing tricks and spins!
