Pole Dance Academy was established in 2009 by sisters Maddie Sparkle and Michelle Shimmy. With four studio locations in Sydney, Australia, the PDA team has taught thousands of students how to fly. We are passionate about the transformative effect of pole dance - whether it be through improved self-confidence, body positivity, improved strength and flexibility, or of course - general badassery. We are excited to welcome you to our online studio so that you can train with us no matter where you are in the world!
