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!

Another studio value post! This one is special and dear to me because it’s about having grace with yourself. Every new student I teach, every student that returns after a long break, I tell them to have grace for themselves. It’s so easy to get down on ourselves when we dont learn quickly enough or a certain move is a struggle. Having grace for yourself is giving yourself permission to fail, to be bad at something, to not succeed the first time and still keep trying. The very fact that you are here trying is so powerful and courageous. Give yourself the credit of trying something hard and a little scary and be patient with everything else.
