Audrey

What do you love most about being an instructor? 
I love watching students conquer moves that they once thought were impossible for them to do.
What is your favorite song to dance to?
Ocean eyes-Billie Eilish
Why Pole/Aerial? What made you start your journey? 
I started with hoop dance and then hammocks and then to lyra a few years later.  I started going to the studio because I was tired of the traditional workouts and wanted something that was fun and motivating. Once I started I was hooked!
What is your favorite trick?
Wrapped Witches Broom
What motivates you?
I am motivated by seeing myself progress throughout the year and helping others progress, overcome hurdles,and feel good about themselves. I see so much confidence come out of new students after a few weeks of classes. That is very motivational for me.

What do you love most about being an instructor? 
I love being able to help someone nail a difficult trick, feel competent in their freestyle, or just have a fun experience in an otherwise stressful day! I want everyone to be able to leave class on a brighter note than when they arrived.. I love our students!
What is your favorite song to dance to?
I can’t pick just one! I’ll narrow it down to two…
“Dirt” by Depeche Mode and “Polar Bear” by Puscifer
Why Pole/Aerial? What made you start your journey? 
I signed up for an 8-week pole session in 2011 on a whim with a couple of friends, just to try it out. I had a rough start, but the progressive trick challenges kept me going! I was way outside my comfort zone, but I locked myself into a year of classes so that I couldn’t quit. After that, it became addictive!
What is your favorite trick?
Kneehold 🙂
What motivates you?
I love the creativity found in pole dancing and the emotional connection to music! It’s also such a great form of exercise, without feeling like I’m “working out.”

Vee

What do you love most about being an instructor? 
I love being able to connect with so many wonderful people passionate about taking the time to re-energize and be the best versions of themselves they can be!
What is your favorite song to dance to?
I have so many….and if anyone is ever in class with me my go to song requests fall into the dirty/flirty/sensual category…something you can definitely feel.
Why Pole/Aerial? What made you start your journey? 
I’ve always been a fan of movement…dancing, grooving, feeling…it was only natural to combine it with aerial as a form of an extension of my passion.  Like many, I started out with some friends as a means to find something random to do together…and haven’t looked back…unless of course I’m looking in the mirror to serve up some major face!!!
What is your favorite trick?
My favorite and probably the hardest “trick” to do consistently is…EYE CONTACT…very physical, mental, deliberate…it crosses all apparatuses…all flow based movements…life in general..there is something so powerful yet so vulnerable that makes this combination the difference between making a flow sequence blah or wow.
What motivates you?
#iheartrandomness
A simple statement that has enveloped me to do and pursue so many things I never imagined or dreamed of doing. These 3 simple words motivate me to do better, be better, and make sure all those I come into contact with feel the most positive vibes they can.
