Title: CRITICAL Tips To Use A Dance Pole On Popcorn Ceilings

CRITICAL Tips To Use A Dance Pole On Popcorn
  • I think the all-time 1 question I get asked
    regarding the topic of installing portable or
    removable pole dancing pole kits is Is it ok to
    install the dance pole on a popcorn ceiling?
    Most people wonder if, is it safe to install a
    dance pole on popcorn ceilings? Will the pole
    ruin the popcorn texture? And if they are
    renting, they are usually worried that they might
    not get their deposit back if the popcorn texture
    on the ceiling gets damaged.  All valid concerns.
  • I personally understand this worry because I once
    lived in an apartment that had popcorn ceilings
    when I first started learning to pole dance at
    home AND when I started teaching, the first
    building I rented to open the pole studio and
    teach pole dancing classes had a popcorn ceiling
    as well!  There is popcorn everywhere!!!!!! Ok,
    so I just had to say that, I had a vision of
    confetti falling from the sky, only it was
    popcorn instead of confetti in that moment ok,
    thats a little weird, back to my popcorn ceiling
    article writing.
So here is the scoop on what to expect when you
use a dance pole in your home (or apartment) on a
popcorn ceiling.
  • Yes, you can safely install a portable and
    removable dance pole with a dome on a ceiling
    with popcorn texture, HOWEVER, here are some
    important things you will want to know before you
    decide to go ahead and do it
  • 1. There is a good chance that when you install
    and/or uninstall the dance pole that you will
    accidentally knock some of the popcorn texture
    off the ceiling. The more frequently you do this,
    the more texture you will knock off. In my first
    pole studio, I had to remove the dance poles
    every day because I had other instructors
    teaching different fitness classes in the same
    room. The repeated activity caused visible rings
    in the popcorn texture where the domes were
    placed day in and day out. This is easily
    repairable and I will go into that in tip 4.
  • 2. If you plan to safely install the pole and
    leave it up, there is a good chance you may not
    even notice there was a pole there when you take
    it down. When I first started learning to pole
    dance, I had popcorn ceilings in my little 2
    bedroom apartment and a VERY picky Christian
    landlord. I did everything I could to hide that
    pole from him for fear of being judged and
    worried he would take my deposit. I had put the
    pole up in my living room and left it there until
    I moved out. When I took the dance pole down, you
    couldnt even tell it was ever there and no
    patching was needed. I did get my deposit back.
    It was a white ceiling.  It all depends on how
    careful you are when you install it.
  • 3. Does popcorn affect the safety of the
    pole? Yes and No.  Popcorn ceilings will never be
    as safe as a regular ceiling with not texture
    because it is harder for the rubber to grip onto
    popcorn texture.   Think about it, popcorn is a
    loose material.  I used to worry that the popcorn
    texture wouldnt allow the rubber on the dome to
    grip good enough and that the pole might slip.
    It never did, not even once.  If you have a GOOD
    QUALITY dance pole with good dome rubber and its
    installed correctly, it is very safe to use on a
    popcorn textured ceiling. I have personally only
    used my Pro Quality Affordable No Brand Dance
    pole on popcorn ceilings however, I am certain
    the X Poles would be just fine as well.
  • Critical point to know  the popcorn texture can
    reduce the stickiness between the ceilings and
    the rubber on the dome and therefore, it can
    slip.   You will need to make your pole tighter
    than normal on a popcorn ceiling for this
    reason.    Another way you can avoid the dome
    slipping is the add 4 pieces of wood around the
    edges of the dome to help hold it in place.   
    You can also use a dance pole ceiling mount to
    permanently attach the top of the dance pole
    class to the popcorn ceiling via a ceiling
    joist.   Keep in mind that if you use a ceiling
    mount, it WILL flatten the popcorn texture
    underneath the ceiling mount. Round pole dance
    crash mats are also great for safety if you are
  • 4. PATCHING the popcorn texture damage If you
    accidentally know off too much of the popcorn
    texture, patching is pretty easy. They make spray
    cans, bottles, and dry mixes of popcorn texture
    that you can buy at Home Depot or Lowes for
    about 10 or less. I have used it to repair
    ceilings and it worked like a charm  Instructions
    are in the container and no special tools are
    required in most cases.   The canned popcorn
    texture is white and MOST popcorn ceilings are
    also white.   No painting required, thank
  • As I always say, safety is the most important
  • You cant have fun pole dancing if you have fears
    about the safety of your dance pole.  Take the
    time to get a good quality portable pole dancing
    pole for your home and popcorn will be the last
    worry on your mind.  Be sure that you have set up
    your pole dancing workout space in your
    home safely as well and have a ton of fun!!
  • Oh, one last thought, since you are obviously
    researching about safe ceiling types to install
    your new dance pole on, you might be interested

    dance pole as well.
