I first started ballet when I was three years old. As I got older, I learned more new dance styles including jazz, tap, and lyrical/contemporary. Once I completed all my dance exams, I started teaching. While I was teaching (and studying) I dabbled into a few other styles such as ballroom/latin and rock'n'roll, just to keep me busy and continue some kind of dance training (what can I say - I'm addicted to dance!). I taught for 6 years before a new job as a molecular biologist took me down to Wellington. That is where I first fell in love with pole.
From my first class I was hooked. I have being pole dancing for just over a year now and I'm loving it! It keeps me active, I'm building my strength every day, and I love how pole dancing is constantly challenging me and helping me become a more confident person.
