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.
Katie O'Neill instructs the following:
- Beginner Pole
- Advanced 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
Students should now be comfortable with Extended Butterfly and will begin learning even more advanced variations on this beautiful move. Aerial Inversions, Shoulder Mount, Helicopter, Superman and Hip Holds, Cupid, Figurehead, Genevieve, Dove, Shooting Star and Half Jade are just a few of the moves you will learn in this level.
