Hey there!

At Devon Pole Dance by Issy Max, we’re all about providing excellent pole dance instruction in a supportive and fun environment. We believe that pole dance is a personal journey, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to teaching it.

Our classes offer a safe, inclusive, fun environment where you can learn at your own pace.

You will receive unprecedented support from your teacher and class-mates. Our classes are about so much more than pole dance. We have helped hundreds of students to increase their confidence, strength and flexibility.

You don’t need any prior level of fitness to start, most of our students come to us with no prior dance experience. We will teach you everything you need to be the best pole dancer you can be.

Unleash your potential in an inclusive and empowering environment. Secure your spot now!

“I feel very grateful to have an instructor who is both passionate and incredibly knowledgeable about pole dancing. Issy is constantly learning, and is always able to provide well-informed and thoughtful guidance on everything from flexibility training to performance tips. She treats each student like an individual, and works hard to learn about their specific goals and teaching needs. 

Her holistic approach to pole training and focus on performing moves and combinations with fluidity has been hugely inspirational in guiding my own practice.” ~ Rebecca

Client Testimonial

Group classes and 1-2-1 classes with Issy have definitely kept me sane through lock down. She is an excellent teacher, and always manages to keep things light and fun. She has a talent for breaking down moves , giving clear explanations and making them achievable (even when I am having a blergh off-day!). There’s a great variety from beginner to advance, dancing to tricks and strength to flexibility- and the fact it’s all backed up with online tutorials and recordings on Patreon is awesome.

I look forward to the days when we can pole and practice together in person again, but either way I would highly recommend you let Issy take you for a spin ~ Jeanne

Client Testimonial

Discovering Devon Pole Dance has been really life changing for me! Having relocated to the south west, as a busy working mum I found it tough to make any time for myself. I’d always wanted to dance, and found Issy’s classes, and they had timings that fit in with my work and family life. I was amazed at the inclusive and positive atmosphere; anybody and everybody is welcome and made to feel comfortable, regardless of ability. The emphasis is on a holistic and balanced approach, building strength, and safely learning to develop your pole skills, and having fun while you do it. It’s a safe space to be yourself whilst working on fitness, strength, flexibility and dance skills. But it’s not just about pole, I’ve also found a diverse, inspiring community that I’m so proud to be a part of. Definitely give this a go if you’ve been thinking about trying something new! ~ Becki A
