Our Story

Whilst teaching pole workshops in studios all over the world, Sarah found the same challenges being raised by students and instructors alike:

  • Wanting to improve but not enough access to a pole
  • Injuries
  • Hitting a rut in training
  • Wanting pole-specific exercises to work towards their goals
  • Not enough time

Off The Pole

After years of research and learning for her own training, Sarah wanted to create a place where pole dancers find answers specific to their needs. Off The Pole was born as a community to offer advice, support and to bring together like-minded pole dancers.

Through the OTP website, Pole Dancers can now find online training programs designed to improve their training, high quality clothing and informative blog articles.

About Sarah

“I am a professional pole instructor and have been poling for 9 years. Pole is an incredibly positive and empowering form of fitness, dance and art to the 1000’s of polers I’ve worked with.

I encourage anyone who hasn’t tried to get booked into a class to try! I have a huge passion for teaching and use the struggles I have gone through when I was learning to help others find their way a lot quicker than I did!”

My goal is to get stronger to push through to a higher level. Some moves are impossible for me, such as Shoulder Mountain and Iron X. I’m impatient and frustrated I can’t progress that fast, so I push too hard. Keeping injuries at bay is my biggest challenge. I need core & upper body conditioning. Am I strong enough? If you’re asking, you need this program!

More than any other person in pole, Sarah is very caring about keeping people safe in their bodies. To all the polers I know, Sarah is leading the way, the head of that movement.

My biggest challenge is injuries, preventing me from competing and teaching. So frustrating! I spend more on treatment than on my mortgage. I’ve spent a lot of time researching back strength – I see dangers for students and I wish I had known more. Off The Pole is in all my classes now. I trust Sarah more than doctors! More than any other poler, she looks beyond pole to make it clear not just HOW to do, it but WHY the body behaves.
