Pole Dance In Minneapolis

Knockout Bodies


The mission of Knockout Bodies is to provide quality and safe instruction by applying the latest dance science research, fostering a safe and inviting space for students to explore dance, fitness, and the pole and aerial arts, and to promote wellness, community, and connection through movement.


When anyone asks us why we do what we do, we say one thing:
“We are not in the business of changing what you see in the mirror. We are in the business of changing how you see yourself in the mirror!”

Dancing with the feet is one thing...

Dancing with in the air is quite another!
