Pole and Aerial Small Group Fitness Studio

Intermediate Pole


This class is taught by:

Megan Pollock

Pole, Chair Dancing, Fitness Class Instructor

Megan started taking pole dancing lessons in March 2014. Previously, she had tried a few classes at Ottawa Pole Fitness, and couldn't wait to try it again when a friend told her about our studio. Back then, she couldn't lift her body weight, and was terrified at the thought of going upside down! Now, 2 years later, she has performed in 2 troupe routines and had one solo performance in studio showcases. She also competed with a group in the Great White North Pole Competition in June 2015.

In summer 2014, Megan started taking the Burlesque Chair Fit Cabaret class, and instantly loved it! She loves learning new choreography to all different types of music, and also enjoys the fact that the class doesn't feel like exercise, but you still get a great workout. She took over the class in September 2015, and has recently discovered her passion for creating new and interesting chair choreography of her own. She even got to try her hand at pole choreography with the beginner/ intermediate troupe at the 2015 Halloween Showcase!

Megan can't wait to share her enthusiasm and sense of humour with her current and future classes!

Katie O'Neill

Pole Dancing Instructor
 
Katie was inspired to take her first pole dancing lesson in 2012, after watching a performance by Jenyne Butterfly. She is constantly pushed to improve her grace and strength by everyone in the pole community. As an instructor she enjoys having fun in class, and helping students reach their goals. One of her favourite spins is called the pretzel, however, she does not share the same love for the food pretzel. Katie hopes to help her students achieve the same confidence and strength that pole dancing provides her.
Taking it to the next level, students will evolve their inverted repertoire to include leg hangs, and our namesake move, the Butterfly.  You'll learn spins that will make you feel like you're flying around the pole (Spiral, Twister, Cobra to name a few) and you'll even learn to lay back from a sitting position and hold on with just your thighs.  WOW!
