Chelsy - Pole, Hoop, Silks, Trapeze, Stretch, Flexibility and Fitness instructor

She enjoys the strength moves as well as the flexy tricks and particularly loves interesting and unique following transitions. Since studying Photography & Art at University, Chelsy decided to leave her paintbrush at the door and venture into the pole and aerial world of instructing, competing and performing. She is now a regular on the competition scene and performs regularly at corporate events, cabaret clubs and circuses.

Eva - Pole, Hoop, Silks and Stretch instructor
Eva has always enjoyed dancing, from Lindy hop to Tango, Salsa to Icelandic folk dance. She has always enjoyed exercise, such as football, running and weight lifting. In 2012 Eva wanted to build up her upper body strength, so she decided to give Pole Fitness a try and there was no turning back!
“What I like most about pole is that the focus in solely on your own journey. We are all differently built and have different strengths and weaknesses. In a pole class you can let your strong side shine and also build you up in a supportive environment.”
Eva enjoys making routines and doubles pole. She has competed twice in Innanhúsmót Pole Sport, Iceland and once at the European Pole Sport Championship. However, she prefers doing showcases and has performed both as a part of a pair or in groups on various occasions. When Eva is not hanging upside down on a pole in a studio she might be seen on a lamp post or a traffic sign, as she collects pictures of her “flagging” around the world.
Jen - Pole, Hoop and Stretch instructor
Not your typical pole dancer (in Jen's words), Jen started pole fitness as an opportunity to build confidence and to get active, having only dabbled in a handful of dance classes over the years. Interested in yoga, athletics, football and horse riding, Jen practiced gymnastics as a young girl and, for a small period, ballet before realising conventional sports and dance just weren't quite right! She has a love of drama, theatre and art, having studied physical theatre and fine art and is always up for anything creative, unique and quirky! Since starting pole, Jen has also taken to aerial hoop in an attempt to live out her childhood dream of joining the circus. Jen loves challenging herself with new moves and combos and brings this to her teaching; believing that anyone is capable of anything with the right steps and encouragement. "The tallest mountain will look impossible when you are at the base of it. Start taking steps forward and then you can look back at how much you achieve along the way."
Melody - Pole instructor
Melody has always loved dance and from a young age attended various classes from Ballet to Street. She is a keen horse rider and actress, as well as Pole she teaches Drama. She was also a keen gymnast."I love to keep fit, however get bored with merely running or attending the Gym. I always try and go for fun innovative ways to get fit, dance is always a great way to enjoy exercise! Over the years I have tried Groove FX classes, Zumba, Aqua-Aerobics and then pole and have never looked back! Pole offers new challenges both physically and mentally, develops upper-body strength and is a chance to meet new friends and of course a fun way to tone up and get fit!"

She first came to a pole class with her daughter (Chelsy). Ange was hooked and has continued to learn pole even after Chlesy returned to Uni! Ange loves to travel and enjoys hot sunny climates; she is also a keen skier and horse rider, although these days cheerfully admits that she prefers to ski in ‘sunny’ weather. Ange is a true inspiration, with her daughters in their twenties, Ange can show them a move or two! "Pole has fast become my passion, I am totally hooked, it has increased my fitness, flexibility and stamina and I love the challenge of mastering and teaching new moves. Pole is suitable for a wide age range, I’m proof of that!"
Lou - Pole and Hoop instructor

"I've done pole on and off since 2009 and got the bug again when I started hoop in 2014. I can't take my children to the park without hanging upside down off of something!
I'm constantly furthering my training and qualifications,and I love seeing the satisfaction when someone learns a new move."

Sarah - Pole, Aerial Hammock and Stretch instructor
Sarah came to pole later than some, not starting until she was in her forties. Although a keen gymnast and swimmer at school, the intervening years only involved a bit of cycling to get about. Since starting pole she has been inspired to be back in the gym and take up yoga in order keep improving.
“I love the challenge of new moves and the buzz of finally getting the one that you have been working towards for ages. Pole has changed the way I look at the world, particularly lampposts!”
