I first started dancing at 5 years old doing Jazz, and have been dancing in some form or another ever since. My main form of dance training was years of Classical Ballet.
I began competing at a National level in Rock'n'Roll in 2006, and have been an NZ champion and also have won an Australian competition. I began Pole as I had some time between competitions and in order to keep dancing (otherwise I get dance withdrawals) I thought I would try something new! Ive been hooked ever since!
I love how I can incorporate all of my dance background into Pole, and how it uses muscles you didn’t know you had. Pole dancing, to me is great because you overcome so many personal battles (like entering a pole dancing competition!) to master new moves while gaining so much strength and flexibility along the way.
When I'm not at Pole, I'm either training hard for Rock'n'Roll competitions or at University studying for my Masters in Applied Psychology.
