So, you’ve been learning how to pole dance for a while now, and the time has come for you to invest in your own dance pole to use at home. Getting your own dance pole is a great idea, it will really enhance your progress, and new technology means that dance poles are very quick and easy to install at home! If you’re currently wondering which pole to buy, then you’re in the right place! This article contains information on the best dance poles for sale at the moment, so if you’re looking for the best dance pole for home use, then look no further!

In the last 12 years, I’ve used all of these different types of dance poles, so have got plenty of experience in choosing poles. I currently have two poles up at home, one in the bedroom and one in the garage. I’ve used poles in clubs, on stages in large concert venues, in gyms, studios, at home and outdoors. I’ve helped countless friends and pole students put up their poles in their homes so I have so much information to share with you all!

In a hurry?

After years of using different portable dance poles, I’ve concluded that the X Pole XPERT Pro (2018 Model) is by far the most superior pole available and is the best dance pole for home use for sale at the moment.

Types of Dance Poles

When it comes to buying a dance pole to use at home, there are generally 3 main options:

  • A pole that’s held in place by tension and pressure (the most popular option)
  • A pole that’s held in place with a permanent ceiling mount
  • A freestanding dance pole with a solid base

Let’s go into a little bit more detail about these different types of dance poles:

Portable Poles Held In Place By Pressure

This is the best idea for your first dance pole due to their safety and ease of use. This type of portable dance pole is held in place by pressure between the ceiling and the floor. Usually positioned directly beneath a joist (beam), they require no ladders, drills or screws and cause minimal damage. You can also take it down very easily and move it to a different location without any hassle.

Once it’s been installed correctly, it’s an incredibly safe piece of equipment and perfectly suitable for practicing pole dancing at home. Most portable dance poles will be suitable for a ceiling height of 7’4″ – 9’4″ out of the box without the need for buying extra pieces.

A Dance Pole With A Permanent Ceiling Mount

If you know you’re going to keep your pole in place for a longer period of time, then getting a ceiling mount is a good idea. A permanent ceiling mount requires drilling, so it will cause some damage to your ceiling, unlike a pressure-fit pole.

Freestanding Dance Poles

A freestanding pole is a good option if you want to use your pole outdoors. We’ve written an entirely separate guide to freestanding dance poles, and you can read it here! (Links open in a new tab)

We have even used pieces of scaffolding cemented into the concrete before, but specialist pole stages are available. These freestanding dance poles use a large and heavy round base and the top of the pole is completely detached. In our experience, these poles are extremely stable but you can definitely feel the motion of the pole ‘swaying slightly’ – this is perfectly safe.

Options: Width, Material, Static/Spin

Besides these 3 main types of dance poles, you have a lot of other things to think about:

  • Static or spin?
  • Which size? (40mm, 45mm, 50mm, 53mm)
  • Which pole finish? (Chrome, Stainless Steel, Powder-Coated, Brass, etc)

There are a few articles on this site that will help you decide what’s best for you! So, in order to avoid repeating myself, check out these guides (all open in a new tab) if you need more information about different pole types:
