About Us

Pure Pole

A Brief History

Pure Pole evolved from Girlfriend Fun & Fitness, which was Queensland’s first pole dancing school, formally established in 2004 by the visionary Natalie TeKanawa, who had been teaching pole since 1999. As the company continued, over the following decade, to grow bigger and better it became evident that the name Girlfriend Fun & Fitness no longer encapsulated everything we had to offer – and thus Pure Pole was born!

We are proud to offer world class training to all levels of students, from beginners to advanced. You can read more about our journey from humble beginnings to a burgeoning network of successful studios, by clicking the link below! Read more
