Pole Dance Tokyo was established in 2006 by Lu Nagata and is the largest pole dance and aerial dance studio in Tokyo, Japan. With 12 poles and lots of space in the studio, every student gets to know their own pole. (Except some weekend classes or workshops.)
Lu’s apprentice Mai Sato, who won the world pole dance championships in 2009 and 2010, was an instructor at the studio, currently working as the first Japanese aerialist for ‘Love’, one of the Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas. All the instructors at the studio are highly competent as current dancers, pole dance championship finalists or division champions and current circus artists.
Our instructors love dancing and create a fun, warm and relaxed environment for students of all abilities, beginner to advanced, everyone is welcome. We also cater for events and performances, Bachelorette parties (Hen parties), provide dancers, rent poles for events and rent out studio space.
One pole per student!
Our studio is the biggest in Japan. We are fortunate to have twelve poles and four aerial silk/hoops in a large open dance floor with a high ceiling – ideal for pole dancing! Every student can claim their own pole and get unlimited practice. (Except some of weekend classes and workshops)
