Canberra Pole Dancing
The Brass Room is Canberra’s premier pole dancing studio. It’s owned by Katy Eve, professional pole dancer and instructor and winner of many state, national and international titles. We specialise in the sexy or classic style of pole, and we believe that everybody should be able to be and feel sexy in their own skin. We offer an encouraging and supportive environment for everyone to dance.
Katy Eve is the owner and head instructor of The Brass Room.
“I wanted to create a sexy style pole dancing studio in Canberra, where all genders could come and dance, but more than that I wanted to create a community! A welcoming, encouraging and positive community of people of all shapes and sizes and backgrounds.
I love the sexy style of pole dancing and being able to openly express your sexiness which is truly empowering and I wanted to share that with others! To give them that empowerment and self confidence but also a fun fitness alternative and sense of belonging. We achieve this at The Brass Room through small class sizes with an emphasis on encouraging and individually tailored instruction. We offer classes in all levels from absolute beginners to advanced as well as exotic choreography, floor work and flexibility classes.”

She continued training in the UK before moving to Canberra and joining The Brass Room as a beginner after a 2 year break from pole dancing.
