Best Pole Dancing Songs for Dance Studio
WHITE STRIPES – I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF
This version of this infamous song is indeed great for pole dancers especially since it features a pole dancer in the video! Well, she’s not really a pole dancer. That is Kate Moss, who is a supermodel, and the routine in the video is pretty but indeed you can do better than this!
SKUNK ANANSIE – WEAK
This is a great choice, mostly due to its lyrics and the change of pace between the verses and the chorus. Skin’s powerful voice screaming ‘WEAK AS I AM’ as you’re punching the air from a superman would be pretty awesome!
HOZIER – TAKE ME TO CHURCH
This 2014 hit is full of emotion, making it ideal for storytellers who like to tell stories through their dance routines. The first verse is slow and disjointed, while the choruses are an intensely melodic tune for a dancer to lose themselves in.
FUGEES – READY OR NOT
This classic song has a wonderful and melodic sample playing alongside the beat. It is ideal for flowing pole dance routines, especially those routines which are choreographed to tell a story.
MARILYN MANSON – SWEET DREAMS
This slow and intense song has haunting vocals and a dark beat, allowing you to unleash your inner gothic badassery! However, ensure you build up momentum with this song, as its first half is super slow and it crescendos, so keep your biggest tricks and combos until the end!
MELANIE MARTINEZ – CAROUSEL
Round and round like a horse on a carousel… Have it in mind that this tune has a haunted fairground feel to it, and it was used in American Horror Story: Freak Show. Note that tunes like this give pole dancers endless creativity to create beautiful routines.
NINE INCH NAILS – CLOSER
No list of pole dancing songs would be complete without this classic from Nine Inch Nails! Perhaps slightly overused at strip clubs and pole studios alike, this crowd-pleasing song is a perfect choice to rock out to and get sensual at the same time.
AIR – SEXY BOY
Also note that this song by the French band, Air, is instantly recognizable as a very sensual song. It was from the soundtrack of the 90s movie ’10 Things I Hate About You’. Owing to its seductive tune and floaty vocals, it also makes for a great pole dancing song.
GRACE – YOU DON’T OWN ME
This song, originally recorded by Lesley Gore in 1964 is about women being in control of their own actions, bodies, and lives. Therefore, using it as part of a pole dance routine is very apt. Note that the chorus of this song is indeed one huge crescendo, giving you the chance to build up to a big finale. You could climb higher and higher up the pole, before!
URGE OVERKILL – GIRL, YOU’LL BE A WOMAN SOON
This is so ideal for pole dance routines! This is such a cool song, from the infamous Pulp Fiction Soundtrack, it is got the perfect rhythm for flow and floor work – it is just dying for someone to create a beautiful routine to this song.
Having music for pole dance is no different from having different playlists for running, weight lifting, or any other kind of exercise. Make sure the music fits your mood!
