About the association
G.S.P.V. De NoordPole: the only student poledance association in the North Netherlands! All of our members get classes at ACLO once a week, and the opportunity to reserve the room for training whenever they want.
Currently, we have about 150 awesome members. There’s more in it for our members than just training: we also offer multiple social events per month, and monthly workshops! We make sure that the association feels like one big family.
The association was founded in 2013 by Eveline Broers, Anneke Kastelein, Laura ten Hove and Mei-Jhi Wu. They had a clear goal: to introduce the students of Groningen to the art of pole dancing at an affordable price, and in a free-minded and accepting environment. Therefore, any student – both Dutch and international! – with an interest in pole dancing, who wants to get to know more people, is welcome in our association.
De NoordPole is located at the ACLO, which is the students sports centre of Groningen, very close to Zernike. We offer classes for students that are completely new to pole dancing, as well as the ones that are more advanced already! Our trainings start with a proper warming-up, and a few yoga exercises, before the trainers teach new moves and choreography.
Our classes are divided into four levels: Beginners, Intermediate I, Intermediate II, and Advanced. If you’re looking for more information about the times and dates of these classes, go check out our schedule.
The trainers in our classes are experienced pole dancers, who make sure to pay attention to the members’ safety during training! You can get to know them on our trainers page.
Besides training, our members can also join a monthly workshop associated to pole dancing for just a small price, to brush up their (pole) dancing skills!
Every spring, we organize club championships. This is where our members can shine and demonstrate a pole dance choreography to us! Apart from that, we organize the Dutch Student Championships (NSK) for pole dancing in collaboration with our sister pole dance associations in the Netherlands.
On top of that, there are also monthly social drinks together with some of ACLO’s other sports associations, non-pole dance related social activities, and parties! If you want to get an idea of what we do, check out our events calendar.
