Anna ...

In 2007 Anna re-discovered her lifelong love for dance and expression through movement when she took a pole dance class. Intrigued by this new art form, Anna decided to see where pole dancing could take her.

From a young age, Anna learned to express herself through dance and music. She began taking piano lessons at the age of nine, and shortly thereafter started voice and dance lessons. A few years later, she was accepted to a performing arts high school.

Anna appreciates life through stories. Stories told in spoken words, expressed in writing, through rhythms, or simply observed in the interactions of people around her. Pole dancing opened up a new kind of story telling for her. After focusing on technique as a certified instructor in Climb & Spin, she started to explore the ways she’d naturally execute basic moves in order to find her individual way of expression. Anna, describes her pole style as, “poetic, fluid, and connected, with a sense of surrender.”

Students who are well versed in fundamentals such as combo spins, various climbs and descends, cast offs, etc., are now ready to learn fundamentals of inverting. More advanced choreography is taught in this class. Free style dance is also part of the Beginner/Intermediate Poletry Curriculum.
