What attracted me to IPDA was other dancers telling me that the classes placed a lot of emphasis on choreography and flow as well as tricks, didn’t shy away from the art forms roots in strip clubs, and were generally really sex worker positive. I’ve been dancing here almost a year now and these are still some of the aspects I best about this place. The instructors challenge you and are genuinely interested in your journey, the dancers support one another and it’s the perfect environment to celebrate being unashamedly sexy.
