Seattle Pole Dance recognizes the pole community has not been inclusive of all dancers and lacks diversity especially at the instructor level. Seattle Pole Dance is committed to continuously working to change this disparity in representation.
In addition to a commitment to diversity in our hiring practices, Seattle Pole Dance commits to the following initiatives as a start: monthly pole jams open to all dancers free of charge; development of scholarship and internship programs aimed at increasing diversity in the pole community; and bi-annual community forums open to all community members to foster open communication and continuous change.
