When you research portable dance poles online, you’ll notice that you’re absolutely spoiled for choice! You have a tonne of things to consider, such as the height of your ceiling, what finish you want on your pole (chrome, brass, etc), what thickness you need (50mm, 45mm, etc) and whether you want a static-only pole or one that can spin as well!

If using a portable dance pole is completely new to you, then we recommend reading our Portable Dance Pole Buyer’s Guide (opens in a new tab) to understand all of the different options available to you.

6 Portable Dance Poles for Under $200

Portable Dance Poles Under $200



$200 is a reasonable budget for a dance pole, however, you will not get a dance pole made the big name brands such as X Pole, Lupit Pole and Lil’ Mynx without resorting to getting a second-hand one. Being completely honest with you, as a real pole dancer myself – it is worth saving that bit extra to get an X Pole XPERT or Lupit Pole. But, I completely understand the fact that you want to pole right now and saving isn’t always an option. That’s why, with the help of some of my fellow pole fitness instructors, we’ve put together this list to help pole dancers on a budget!

These dance poles for under $200 are completely safe to use, the features, pros and cons are listed underneath each product and they’re all compared in a handy table below.

Guess what – you can get yourself an X Pole for under $200…

1. X Pole Sport

That’s right! The X Pole Sport comes in at under $200! You can own an X Pole and spend less than you probably thought. The main downside is that the X Pole Sport does not spin – it is a static-only pole.

Features of the X Pole Sport

X Pole Sport

  • Diameter: Choice of 40mm, 45mm or 50mm
  • Finish: Choice of Chrome, Titanium Gold (TG), or Pink or Black Powder-Coated

  • Maximum load: 250lbs
  • All tools included

  • Price: $120 – $160 (depending on which finish you choose)

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Extremely sturdy; suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced pole dancers
  • X-Joint technology holds the pole pieces together, instead of being screwed together like other poles on this list
  • Storage and carry case makes the pole easy to transport
  • Extensions can be bought separately if your ceiling height is higher than 9ft

Cons

  • Pole does not spin (but the XPERT Range of X Poles can be switched between static and spin)
  • Depending on your ceiling height, part of the height adjuster screw may be visible at the bottom of the pole, meaning that the pole won’t be smooth from floor-to-ceiling. Even with a small amount of the height adjuster screw showing, the bottom few inches of the pole are unusable. X Pole provides a foam adjuster cover to combat this (included), but it needs to be cut-to-size.
