Dance and fitness spaces often alienate marginalized and underrepresented people, and Alyssa Taubin knows that pole fitness communities are often no different. With the vision of a radically inclusive fitness environment, she opened Positive Spin Pole Dance Fitness, a space where queer, trans, non-monogamous, and plus size people (and allies) can connect with their bodies. Positive Spin also hosts community education events about pole fitness and diversity.

Bonus: Positive Spin is adding a work study program for students seeking leadership roles and financial assistance.
