Empowering all people through the Art, Strength, and Community of Pole Dance

Nothing Gold Can Stay...



After much soul-searching and many emotional conversations, the Empower team has made the difficult decision to officially close our doors on August 24, 2024. This isn't a choice that we have made lightly, however we have found ourselves in a position where the studio itself struggles to remain profitable in the current economy - and as much as we love pole dance, we know that groceries come first! This is coupled with the fact that we as individuals have reached crossroads when it comes to opening new chapters in our personal lives. After many discussions with each other and with our partners and families, we have decided it is time to take off the Pleasers and walk down new paths.


Still, don't waste your tears while we are still around! Just because the end is in sight doesn't mean we aren't going to go out with a BANG. We will continue to run our standard classes right up until the day we close our doors, and we are adding some SPECIAL classes into the mix because heck - why not?

Whether you've been with us for the whole journey, have taken a break to pursue other passions, or haven't been to see us before... we still want to see you before we put down the grip aid! We've changed our punch pass system to a flat August 24th expiry, so go ahead and just grab the number of punches you think you might need (and you can always top up again if you burn through it faster than expected). We've also dropped the overall cost-per-class for ALL of our classes (Unlimited and Pole 101 included!) because we really just want to see you guys more, okay?

If you have unused passes or Gift Certificates sitting in your account, please please PLEASE come in and use them up by the end of August! If you aren't sure you'll be able to get through them all, give us an email and we can work with you to figure something out <3

Thanks for joining us on this incredible adventure, everyone. We wouldn't change it for the world and we value you folks more than words can express!

Love Always,

The Empower Team

Our Vision

At Empower, our name is our aim. Our mission is to empower our students by offering a variety of classes including pole art and fitness, floorwork, conditioning, and stretching.  We strive to build a strong and resilient community that includes all people, supporting each other through dance. We encourage creativity and growth, and aim to inspire our students to challenge their limitations, push their own boundaries, and discover the amazing feats of which they are capable.

As part of our commitment to fostering a safe, inclusive, and respectful environment for all people, Empower Pole Fitness acknowledges that our home rests on Treaty 7 territory. We recognize that this is the traditional and ancestral territory of the Siksikaitsitapi - the Blackfoot Confederacy - and the peoples of the Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, and Tsuu T'ina First Nations; and is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.

We at Empower understand that reconciliation is an ongoing journey and we strive to educate ourselves to better show our gratitude to the peoples on whose territory we work, play, and grow.
