ONLINE GRADING CERTIFICATION
Our innovative grading system gives instructors and students the opportunity to demonstrate their ability at the different levels of our syllabus and receive recognition and award for their efforts. Working towards a grading will not only help with your continuing professional development but will really build your confidence around the pole too. If you are not used to linking moves or putting routines together, the grading is a great way to start to develop these skills in a structured way.
The grading is a unique concept to pole fitness. Developed by Pole Passion Ltd in 2009 with the objective to support students and instructors in their development and first steps towards performing and competing. We are proud to announce the Pole Passion Grading system is now open to all students (and instructors alike), incorporating the system through our online learning portal which will enable you to gain a certification of your performance achievements in a structured manner.

The grading certification is a pole dance fitness certification where students and instructors alike can build confidence in choreographing their own routines without the fear of being judged in a professional fitness environment. For many students and instructors level 1 is their first opportunity to showcase their practised skills of tricks, spins, transitions, poses and floor work combining them into a routine set to music of their choice.
Gradings are taken for many different reasons for some its a personal achievement, a platform to stand up and perform for the very first time showing off their own choreography, a chance to express themselves through music and dance. For others it’s the first steps to a career in performing, a build up to the competition they’ve always wanted to enter but never thought they could, a chance to gain confidence, build flow, increase stamina and performance endurance.
A chance to get feedback to assist in improving their art every step of the way, eventually moving onto competitions.
Grading performances are certified and students can achieve either a Pass or a Pass+ at each level.
