SOUTH BEND'S PREMIER POLE STUDIO
At Soma, we teach pole with technical precision while aiming to facilitate reflective practice. We are committed to fostering a supportive community built on strength, empowerment, and resilience.
WHO WE ARE
We are a minority-owned studio that is seeking to build individual and community power through pole dance. We provide quality pole instruction and a welcoming atmosphere for all of our students. We believe that pole dance is a "practice of knowing" - a transformative process of liberation through which we can know and access ourselves and the world more deeply.
The curriculum at Soma was developed with two objectives in mind: to teach the technical aspects of pole and to encourage a reflective practice in the process. Students will learn the athletic elements of pole in such a way that facilitates self-exploration and self-expression. Through this curriculum, we aim to foster a unique combination of strength and vulnerability that contributes to personal growth and development.
Trust yourself. Invest in yourself. Transform yourself. Discover your strength and gain a community.
Pole dance is historically linked to sex work. We stand in solidarity with the sex worker community and actively work against its stigmatization.
