Looking for how to disguise your dance pole? Interested in concealing that part of your life for privacy reasons? We got you!
Dance poles are a great way to exercise and keep fit. They can also be used for more sensual purposes, so it’s understandable if you’re a bit shy about that part of your life.
Having your own dance pole at home is great, especially as it allows you to practice and do pole fitness any time of the day or night. However, what happens when you’re playing host to guests?
We recommend purchasing a removable dance pole if you’re keen on keeping that part of your life private. However, if you already have a permanent pole in place, there are still plenty of ways to hide or conceal your dance pole.
Below are some practical ways to disguise your dance pole.
Use a Folding Screen
A folding screen is ideally a great choice to hide your permanent dance pole, especially if you have a lot of time to plan ahead. The folding screen can create a partition in your room to hide the dance pole.
You can spice things up by choosing a screen that matches the existing décor in your room. You can also experiment with your creative side by painting the folding screen to achieve a unique look.
Hang a Tapestry or Wall Hanging
Looking for a cheap, easy, and fast way to hide your permanent dance pole? This is perhaps the best advice you’ll see on the internet. Grab a tapestry or wall hanging and put it in front of your pole to cover it up.
Pro Tip: Choose a decorative design that matches your room color. The decorative touch can brighten up your room and add unspoken aesthetics to it.
Hang String Lights or Fairy Lights
Expecting guests over for the holidays? Use your stripper pole as a prop for holiday lights. Grab some decorations from the local gift shops and drape lights across the pole. The lights can give your room a whole new definition and can also take attention away from your dance pole.
Use a Decorative Pillar or Column
Decorative pillars or columns are also a great way to disguise dance poles. They not only hide the pole but can add to your room’s appeal. Ensure to choose the right patterns and colors to complement your existing décor.
Pro Tip: It’s best to choose a neutral or cool color that blends into the background. This makes the pole less conspicuous and adds to your room’s aesthetics.
Install a Tension Rod
Tension rods are a great way to disguise your dance pole. When done right, they can blend in with your curtains, keeping the dance pole effectively out of sight. This is especially a great recommendation for pole dancers with removable dance poles.
Use a Removable Cover
You can buy and use a removable cover to disguise your dance pole. Most removable stripper pole covers are made from fabric or vinyl and do an excellent job of covering up dance poles when not in use. In fact, you can use this for when you’re going on holiday or during colder months to keep your dance pole from becoming too cold to touch.
Dance pole removable covers are available in various colors and designs and can be easily removed when you want to use the pole.

Install a Bookshelf or a Wardrobe
Bookshelves and wardrobes are a great way to hide things in the room. This practical suggestion works best when you have a large bedroom. The bookshelf or wardrobe will disguise your dance pole and also provide extra storage space for your clothes and pole dancing accessories.
Note: This may not be the best option if you’ve installed your dance pole right in the center of the room.
Install a False Ceiling
False ceilings are a great way to disguise your dance pole, especially if budget isn’t an issue. You’ll need enough time to plan this project as you need a professional to work on it to ensure you get a sturdy and reliable finish.
False ceilings will not only disguise the pole but also make the room look more stylish.

Use a Room Divider
Room dividers can be used to hide your dance pole from sight. Again, this option works best when you have a large room. Smaller rooms may feel cramped up, especially as there’s a higher chance that you may have installed the dance pole beside your bed to get more room to pole dance.

If all else fails, own up to your pole dancing side and embrace it with pride. You shouldn’t have to hide who you are for acceptance; instead, the world should accept you for the amazing pole dancer that you are!
