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!

My favorite part of being a part of our studio is our community. Different souls, different life experiences, different interests, and we can all come together and find support with each other. We truly lift each other up and have fun with each other. I’ve witnessed true, genuine joy when a fellow student gets a move they’ve been working on for months, I’ve witnessed sadness and pain being held and comforted, and I’ve witness the realization that we are all profound creatures in search of sovereignty of our own bodies and our own movement. All of that within our own studio. All because of our community. In our studio we can be fierce and we can be vulnerable, we can be sexual and we can strong. ...

Workshop Alert!
Did you know about 80% of our communication is NON-VERBAL? This course is designed to break patterns of thought and habitual movement when we dance. We will study slow and sensual movements known in the pole dance world, what it is to BE in our body, and redefine how we move with the use of body language.

You can expect to further connect with your own desires and see how it shows up in your dance. This course is not an aerial experience and zooms in on the micro details of expression. Compatible with all levels of experience. Intro to pole completion required.

** Bring knee pads and/or leg warmers. Bring a notebook and something to write with. Heel friendly! Dress for what you wish to feel when we move, but no nudity or pasties.

90 minute in person workshop - $40

This workshop has a virtual option as well for this wishing to participate at home.
