Meet Your Instructors 

One of the best things about pole dancing is that it is never ending! There is no limit!  There are always new tricks and combinations, new dancers and new styles appearing. We try to continually develop as people, dancers and as instructors. We compete, perform, attend workshops, tour with our workshops and in return like to host dancers that we admire. We hope to inspire and in return love to take inspiration from others.
