Pole Dancing, Fitness Class Instructor
I began my pole dancing journey in January 2014 as the Studio Assistant. I don't come from a dance background. I grew up playing competitive ringette and lacrosse as well as recreational hockey. So, needless to say, pole dancing hasn't come naturally for me. It certainly has its challenges but has been the most rewarding thing I've ever done. In March 2014 I performed along side the owner, Heather, to a very sexy chair routine at our grand opening showcase. It brought me completely out of my comfort zone and was such a rush that since then I've performed in all of our studio showcases as well as competed in The Great White North Pole Competition in June 2015. In April 2015 my role in the studio changed from the Studio Assistant to Aradia Instructor. It's such an honour to watch all of our students grow and find themselves in this sport and knowing that I've been apart of that process as well.
Kyla Howey instructs the following:
- Beginner Pole
- Advanced/Masters Pole
In Beginner Pole we introduce progressively more intricate and strength intensive spins and holds on the poles. As you build your strength we will prepare you to do basic inversions and climbing the pole along with even more dance, transition and floor moves to round out your pole repertoire. Just a few of the featured moves in this class will be Chair Spin, Diamond Spin, Push-pull Holds, Windmill, Climb and Sit, Basic Inversion, Snake Dismount
This class is ideal for those who have already taken Advanced Pole at least once, but students do not feel ready to move into Masters. Both levels of curriculum are welcome and will be taught in this class and students will be encouraged to work at their own level.
