Social Distancing during COVID-19
For group classes, we'll wear masks until we get to our "pole bubble," and we'll mask every time we leave our bubble during class. No hugging or spotting without masks.

Hi! I’m Diane Martin, owner of South Springs Pole, and I’d like to tell you about my journey with pole fitness. I took my first pole lesson in 2008. Pole was brand-new in Colorado Springs back then, and I had never known anyone who had done it; I just went out on a limb and signed up for an intro lesson. I was not in shape—in fact, I had never really been in shape—and I was a bit older than most of the other students in my class. In spite of all that, I fell in love with pole on my first spin. I smiled from ear to ear, and for the next few days, I felt like a kid with a secret: I was so excited about my new hobby!
I stuck with it, and a couple of years later, I started teaching lessons on my pole in my living room. It didn’t take long to realize that I needed more space, so I found a location to open a "real" studio. I named that studio Pole Revolution, and it's been a success. In 2017, I sold that business and "came home" again. A while back, my husband renovated half of the lower level of our current home into a cozy studio with five poles, and in November 2019 we reopened our home studio, to provide basic and intermediate pole instruction. And I am excited to have added Kathy Prichard to my instructor staff!
Our first love in pole is teaching the basics. We love teaching the basics of dance, counting music, and routines for each level in our curriculum. And we fully expect some students who are more advanced than we are to find their pole home here too. We have five beautiful brass spin/static poles, so even when this time of social distancing ends, our class sizes will still be small and personal: a maximum of four students except for pole parties.
We at South Springs Pole welcome anyone, regardless of age, race, gender or gender expression, religion, sexual orientation, or ability. We are here to help you move forward in your pole life, so please check out what we have to offer. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Our new schedule is customizable to your needs, so please check that out and then text, message, or email us with questions. (We prefer not to answer the phone when we don't know the number, so the other modes are better.
We look forward to journeying in pole with you!
At South Springs Pole, you'll get not just the "what," but also the "how" and the "why" of every pole move. You'll get suggestions like "shift your weight to the other foot" and "put your outside hand on top" and "watch what my feet do here," to make pole accessible. One of our mottos is "Can't isn't a word here unless it's followed by yet." Diane is trained and certified to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students; Kathy is trained and certified to teach beginning students. Both are certified through the Pole Fitness Alliance (formerly PoleMoves), and the most trusted source for pole fitness professionals. PFA training focuses on the basics: techniques and safety; so our students gain a solid understanding of the finer points of any pole move. Because of our training and our commitment to helping you succeed, we provide patient, attentive instruction that ensures you'll leave every class with at least one "I did it!" moment. You can do it! Come and see!
Short shorts and a tank top or crop top are best. No lotion, please, except O'Keefe's Working Hands (it's oil-free) or Corn Huskers Lotion (if you can find it) or a commercial grip aid. No rings or other jewelry on hands or wrists please, except Fit Bit type watches. When you arrive, pull right in, up on the gravel (onto
When you arrive, please pull right up onto the gravel on the front or side of the house (in what would be our front or side yard if it wasn't parking spaces). Please don't park on the street unless all of our off-street parking spaces are full. (You'll block others from being able to park off-street.) When you've parked, just come right in and downstairs; no need to knock or ring the doorbell. We're expecting you!
Group classes are $15 per person, per 80-minute session. We have a maximum class size of four students, and we strictly adhere to the CDC's social distancing guidelines.
In our private lessons, it will be just you and your instructor, or you and your guests who are in your social bubble and your instructor. Private lessons are 80 minutes long. Right now, one private lesson costs $20. And you can bring one, two, or three guests for just $10 each. If you see a group class on the schedule at a time when you would like to take a private lesson, and if no one has already signed up for that session, just text Diane and she will convert the session to a private for you (and your friends, if you wish).
Because of Covid restrictions and the size of our studio, we are limited to a max of four guests to help you celebrate a birthday or other special occasion. For your 90-minute event, we'll provide an instructor who will teach you basic pole skills and a flirty routine, and table space in case you want to bring food and/or beverages (adult beverages are okay). We'll give you extra time to decorate too, if you want, up to two hours for setup, party, and cleanup. You get all this for $60.
