Upside Bar - Bar à pole dance Paris
Help us fund the 1st pole dance bar in Paris : innovative project combining the concept of a classic bar with pole dancing (acrobatic dance)
Upside Bar - Bar à pole dance Paris
I discovered pole dancing two and a half years ago and it became a passion very quickly. Since then I am addicted to evrything regarding this artistic sport which for sure changed my life. Pole dance is a discipline combining dance and acrobatics, a playful alternative to fitness.
Unlike what you may think, pole dance is easily reachable to most people and thanks to it's level classes everyone can progress at their own pace. Due to it's fun, enthusiastic and motivating side, pole dance is a very much appreciated hobby which can quickly turn into an addiction.
During a journey in Florida I discovered a bar which concept involves (among other things) pole dance. Since thenI only have one thing in my mind, to open a pole dance bar in Paris. The idea has grown and evolved in my head for over a year.
Today the project can be presented as follows :
Opening of the first pole dance theme bar in Paris (also first in Europe) which unique and innovative concept is based on pole dance and it's practice. The project combines the services and activities of a bar with the practice of all levels and styles of pole dance in an entertaining and fun setting.
These two activities are totally compatible and the purpose is to enable :
- the "free" practice of pole dance for initiated enthusiasts (pole dancers)
- the discovery of this discipline to a wider crowd through a range of initiation and beginner classes
- to appreciate the welcoming and fun atmosphere over a drink with friends
- to attend and participate to theme evenings and specific parties as for example performances accomplished by pole dance professionnals and stars
The objective is to create "the" place where all pole dance enthusiasts can meet up (no matter what level, style or school they attend) but also to change the ancient and outdated view that people can still have of pole dance.
From the start I had the great chance to be blessed with the help and unconditionnal support of my family and friends. I take this opportunity to thank them all. Thank you all so much !!!
I also care very much about introducing my very own "Charlie's angels" to you. A team of friends sharing the same passion : pole dance, and united like the fingers of a hand : Amandine, Morgane, Julie, Aurélie, Eléonore and I (yes our hand has six fingers LOL :-) They are the most essential and important support to me and the project. I find it rather difficult to find the words to explain how much their help is important and irreplaceable. This project has become as much their baby as it is mine.
So now that the introductions have been made I hope you would like to know more about this adventure and support it too?
