About this pro

I think my service stands out because I remember and relate to the struggle of learning and progressing my body at an older age. I didnt grow up an athlete. I didnt become great overnight. It was a process and some of what I teach is complicated and potentially dangerous. I take pride in my ability to communicate and demonstrate so that my students can continue to grow and improve without injury.

I love teaching! I love swiming, dancing and working out with my students. It just gives me life! I always feel accomplished when my students excel.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I think assessing where a student is physically first is priority and understanding where they want to go with the lesson.

Then we can base the lesson around their current ability. Since I am providing one on one training customizing the plan per individual is required.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been a trained athlete for over 13 years and an instructor for 12 years. I coach, choreograph and train individuals and groups. I am certified in the following:

Pole dance, lyra, silk, pole flight, liquid motion, cardio barr, personal and group trainer, CPR, life guard and swim instruction. 

You are in great hands!

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Private Lessons can range between $35 and $100/ per hour depending on the service. Discounts are negotiated based on number of lessons required. Please ask me.

How did you get started teaching?

I was getting married and I wanted to do something sexy for my honeymoon so I took a burlesque class which lead to me practicing pole for fitness and fun, which then lead to me teaching, competing professionaly and opening up my own studio. Who knew? LOL!

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with the majority of women however I have taught both men and children. All shapes and sizes and every ability and lack of ability. No experience required! :)

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I raise money for the American Cancer Society where I promote Dancing for the cause so we can donate for the cure! I love giving back!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Some instructors are like a video. They say watch me and see how I do it. Now its your turn. I think that is irresponsible. Your instructor should be able to explain to you what to expect, how you should feel and what body parts to focus on.

Some instructors do not warm a student up before teaching. Also not a good sign.

Some instructors think you should be able to climb a pole before you even know how to walk around it. Also, not a good sign.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

If you have a need to dance that is all you really need. That said, if you have any learning disabilities or physical or health restrictions you will want to make sure the instructor understands and is knowledgeable to help you pass or avoid those hurdles.

You also want to think about the investment and be realistic about your expectations. Some students think they can get the hang of it quick because dancers make it look easy. But for 98% of student, even if they are super fit and strong it takes time for the ease to kick in.

So this means consider how many lessons and the amount of time/hours you want to spend. I recommend 3 sessions if you just want to experience it and see if you really like it.
