I took up pole dancing after returning from holiday having seen poles in all the local bars, and wanted to give it a try. Hooked by the challenge, I purchased my own pole to use at home. Soon after I started to pole dance, I found myself entering for an amateur pole competition called UKAPP, UK Amateur Pole Performer, where I came runner up in the final! I had no idea I was capable of performing in front of an audience, and can't tell you how nervous I was! However, the feeling I got from performing was incredible. The audience are so supportive and I knew then that pole would be a huge part of my life from there on. I have now been Pole Dancing for 4 years, and my passion for pole is as strong as ever. I was honoured to be invited to perform as a guest at UKAPP in 2011, and also as a judge for Pole Pin Up 2012. 
In March 2014 I was placed second in the Authentic Style Pole Dancing Competition in Wigan, where I was honoured to come runner up to Lauren Red.
I have received training from some of the best pole dancers in the world, including Sally-Ann Giles, Annie Norris, Suzie-Q and Toby J, Jessalyn Medairy, Cleo the Hurricane and Bendy Kate! I have also recently hosted Masterclasses with Miss Pole Dance Uk Title Winner Sarah Scott, and NZ based Karry Summers who was runner up in the Pole World Cup 2012, and Queen of sexy flexy Lauren Red! The Incredible Bendy Kate has also been to our studio to teach Masterclasses.

I have been teaching for over 3 year's now, and still love every minute of it, and am keen to inspire others and pass on my passion for pole.
