Very excited to have the opportunity to teach pole dance and burlesque here in my hometown of Whangarei! Burlesque has always been a passion of mine. I performed in my very first show in 2010 down in Christchurch and have since performed around NZ, taught workshops and helped to establish a burlesque troupe in Northland. Anyone can give it a go; there is no age/size/fitness requirement. Burlesque is not about looking a certain way or fitting a certain mould – it is about empowerment, body positivity and creative freedom.
While taking a break from performing in 2017, I discovered pole dance and have been training at the Studio ever since. I love the challenge of working towards a new move and seeing my strength and flexibility improve. As a teacher it is awesome seeing my students develop their confidence and achieve things they didn’t think possible!
