Formed in 2009, Polecats Manila is now considered to be the premiere pole dancing school in the country. Located at the heart of Ortigas, their studio boasts of professional grade equipment of the highest standards for safety and quality.
I can attest to their quality standards when it comes to pole fitness because I have been their student for more than a year now. They push you the right way, they harness your strengths and at the same time develop your weaknesses as well. For a year, I never had any injuries apart from minor bruises so I can really say their teaching methods are safe and a whole lot of fun! And the benefits I get out of pole dancing are tremendous: flexibility, strength, confidence, creativity, weight loss, muscle tone and achieving the impossible! Most of the students advance safely into different levels and every time, we pole kittens (their students), surprise ourselves with the many things we can actually do! Every trick we conquer is a cause of celebration!
International Pole Championship titles
Grabbing some details from their website:
Polecats are taking pole dancing to new heights. We believe that every trick, climb and spin can become strength, grace and art. As a performance group, Polecats deliver fluidity in motion, with performances that fuse ballet, jazz and gymnastics. Every performance is a reminder that the extraordinary is our specialty.
As teachers, we aim to show every student that no matter their size, height or history, they are still capable of defying gravity. Equipped with the most professional equipment, Polecats are the only group in the country with internationally certified instructors. We do not only offer classes, we offer a community of encouraging and engaging students who bloom into their own brand of beauty.

Spaholics Nail and Blow Dry Bar
It’s the metro’s first urban glam bar.
Spaholics is designed wit Hollywood’s old school glamour in mind,the entire space is designed in art deco wallpaper of black and white intricate patterns that is as minimalist as it is charming.
Your usual Nail Spa and Blow Dry Bar is given a fun twist! Its feminine twist separates it from your typical spa or salon. This is the Nail Bar where customers can perch on leather stools and have their nails done next to one another. The Nail Bar carries an extensive range of the latest polishes that can be painted on plain or in various designs, making one’s nails look like a tiny gallery of artworks.
They have Shellac series which is a gel and paint polish painted on just once and “dried” with a UV lamp for mere 3 minutes”!
Blow Dry Bar
Unlike most, if not all salons, The Blow Dry Bar doesn’t offer any cuts or color. Instead, they focus on just fabulous blowouts for all types of hair. The concept is simple: Wash, Blow, Style and GO!
Thank goodness heaven just landed beside our pole studio!
I’ve been waiting for this healthy restaurant to launch and they have officially opened last June 30 at 22nd floor Strata 100! It completes the Alliance Wellness Center! Now we have healthier options and we don’t have to go far from where we work out!
What’s interesting is that they also have a Nutritionist present at the restaurant every Friday and Saturdays for consultation at 12nn – 2pm.
They offer guilt-free but delicious food!
