List of Life is a small, young and vibrant company that offers and develops activities and classes aimed at the stag and hen market. Stag events are offered under the brand name List of Life and Hen events under the brand Polestars. In addition, we also run a small dance school (under the Polestars brand) aimed at offering fitness through dance. Our fitness products focus on staying active and learning new dancing styles, while our party products are aimed at everyone primarily having fun while learning something new.
The company was started in 2003 when Katja wanted to learn to pole dance, but found that most of the “dancing schools” that offered these courses were in fact just strip clubs where the training was geared towards teaching how to make money from pole dancing and used by the clubs as a recruiting tool. Soon after Katja become an expert, Polestars popped up and become one of the first schools in the UK to teach pole dancing for fun and fitness, with none of the sleeze that is often associated with it. Soon after, we began offering other classes, such as burlesque and can-can. More than eight years later, and we now teach 20 different dancing styles, and offer a raft of other activities to more than 2000 hen, stag, birthday and corporate groups every year.
In the past, we’ve offered our dance classes throughout the UK and Ireland. For 2012 however, we’re only planning to regularly run these walk-in style classes in London (private classes and tutorials are available on request).

Expert Content & Articles
In our blog, we often write expert articles and advice about the things we know best – these are not short articles written in a day by an intern or member of the marketing department, but accurate true stories and how-to’s by our dance tutors, chocolatiers, art teachers, survival experts, and other expert members of staff. These contain a lot of anecdotal stories, and everywhere that figures are stated, we have taken the time to find research that backs up our claims.
