In the fall of 2012, the opportunity presented itself to purchase her own studio in Kitchener and she took the leap into entrepreneurship, moving her family to the Waterloo region the following year. The years since then have been an incredible journey. She loves all the amazing people she meets every single day in this business, be they students, instructors, suppliers or fellow entrepreneurs. She loves introducing new students to Pole Dancing, Aerial Arts, and general fitness, and nurturing the incredible community that has developed in our studio.
Heather is a certified Fitness Instructor Specialist with CanFit Pro, certified Pole Instructor through the Canadian Pole Fitness Association, and has completed instructor specific training with the Aradia Fitness Canada, YogaFit Canada, and the US Pole Sport Federation, just to name a few. She also holds as Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and a Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) from McMaster University.

What to Expect:
In the Intro to Pole level of our Pole Dancing curriculum, you will begin each lesson with a warm up and some fun and sexy floor work designed to make for great dance and transition elements in your pole routines but also to build your strength for the pole work. You'll then spend the rest of each class learning the foundations of movement on and around the pole starting from walking around the pole to some basic strength and spin moves. You'll finish off each class by "dancing it out" where your instructor will lead you through a mini routine on the pole.
By registering for this session you are committing to attending all sessions and practices, learning the choreography and performing in the showcase. It is very important for the experience of everyone in the troupe that you commit to attending all sessions. If you miss more than one of the weekly sessions (due to illness or emergency), you may be asked to drop out of the troupe, without refund, or practice on your own time to catch up, on a case-by-case basis. There will be a dress rehearsal the week before the showcase and there may also be additional supplemental rehearsals or practice sessions scheduled at the instructor's discretion. These are included in the session fee. No refunds for withdrawing after the first meeting.
PLEASE NOTE: Troupe participants will be expected to purchase a costume for the performance. While every effort will be made to keep costume costs affordable, it could cost upwards of $50-100. This cost is NOT included in the troupe fee and should be budgeted for when deciding to join the troupe.
The cost of the troupe is
$199 + HST for students not also enrolled in one or more other curriculum classes during the September/October session, or
$149 + HST for 8-week session students who are enrolled in one or more curriculum class during the September/October session, or
$99 + HST for Chrysalis and Monarch members. Monarch members may pay once and attend as many troupes as they like.
Your enrolment also gains you free access to special posted "Showcase Performers Only" practice times throughout the the 8 week period leading up to the showcase.
