The Pole Dance Community (PDC) was set up in 2009 to create a membership system allowing professional pole instructors to self regulate the new and growing industry.
The PDC Code of Conduct was designed by the members and agreed upon as well as minimum training requirements and fair pricing policies. By these measures PDC membership became the way to recognise legitimate, professionally run pole schools.
PDC also works as an advocacy group, talking directly with underwriters, politicians and the media helping them to better understand our industry.
Rather than following the usual format of having a President head the organisation, with committees and sub committees deciding policy, the PDC is refreshingly different. In essence, the PDC was created from bottom up by the actual pole instructors, from the industry’s need rather than from top down for the benefit of the organisation itself.
