Make MMU Pole Dance A Sport

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


MMU Pole Dance has supported the MMU Athletics Union since forming the sports society in 2012. We have been rallying to further this bond in becoming an official sport since then. Many universities around the UK currently recognise Pole Dance as an official sport, we want Manchester Metropolitan to be the next to do so, just like our neighbouring friends in Salford. We've worked hard to remove the negative stigma that was once associated with Pole Dancing, and instead, promote the health benefits and body positive ideologies Pole represents. Members build on core strength and fluent transitioning similarly to Sports clubs like Dance, and Cheer. We have and will continue to compete in competitions within the UK. One of our very own girls won 3rd place in the intermediate category, it being her first time competing, look at how far we can go! As you've likely seen us around campus, contributing by supporting our fellow sports clubs, either in attending AU Union events, or running our own, and our rapidly increasing membership (which currently stands at 93 members), makes us a valuable asset to the AU in general. Our team mates across the AU support us in this case to become a sport, and we hope you do too! 

It's now or never....

Pole Love xoxo
