Favorite Songs To Dance To: "Colorblind" by Counting Crows
Favorite Quote: "The magic happens outside your comfort zone."
Why I Teach At Flirt: My favorite part about being a Flirt Instructor is my students, hands down. I love teaching. Teaching is a talent that not a lot of people are capable of doing as it requires a lot of humility, self analyzing, patience, and an ability to teach many different ways. My students are the reason I teach, they are the reason I complete continually education, they are the reason study, and they are the reason I love my job. Each one is so very special in my heart in their own ways, and I wouldn't change that for anything in this world.
What I Want For My Students: To develop a level of strength and understanding to where they can achieve their own goals. Also to challenge them through educating them in different kinds of dance, movement, choreography, combos, and strength. And to help them realize that utilizing these things will make the unique and original to themselves!
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: Love yourself, because you are perfectly imperfect, and that's what makes you unique!!

Favorite Songs To Dance To: It depends on the mood that I am in. If I’m feeling really sappy or sad, I love to dance to anything by Sam Smith or Let Me Hold You by Josh Krajcik. If I’m feeling like a badass and want to feel alive, I like to dance to anything by Skrillex or Bad by David Guetta. The days that I’m feeling super sexy, I’ll play Lioness, Hours by FKA Twigs, or anything by The Weeknd. If I just plain need to dance it out, I’ll throw on songs like Beneath your Beautiful or Bless the Broken Road or Girl Crush.
Favorite Quote: "She believed she could, so she did." ~ R.S. Grey
Why I Teach At Flirt: It’s my passion…..not just pole, but to inspire women. Being able to share my story and my life with a beautiful community and being able to introduce a safe haven for women to feel secure in themselves is the most humbling, honoring peach I could ever wish for.
What I Want For My Students: I want each of my students to feel sexy, strong and confident. I want them to be able to free the inner goddess within them and be thankful for each curve of uniqueness they have. I want them to feel empowered by the physical strength pole gives them. I want them to be able to honestly look at their reflection in the mirror and say “you are beautiful”.
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: You are an amazing creature of this earth and you are capable of so much more that you think you are. Life is about living and as a woman we tend to always live for others instead of ourselves. Take time for you, no matter what it is, to connect your mind, your body and your spirit. Student or not, I see the beauty in you. I believe in you. Oh – and – free laughs, smiles, hugs and more 24/7! Come in and share your story with me!!!
Pole Poise is offered as an add-on class to students currently in Level 1, and available as a primary or add-on class to students who have completed one or more levels. This is a mixed-level class celebrating the sensual side of pole dancing with an emphasis on flow and individuality. As in other Flirt signature pole classes, you will enjoy a light, total body workout and spend time learning and refining a variety of pole moves; all while building your endurance and grace with extended dance time and extra instruction on accents. Students are encouraged to work individually or in teams to choreograph their Week 8 graduation performances. Because of the structure and emphasis of Pole Poise, inverts and advanced holds are not permitted in this class. Students are welcome to dance in bare feet or heels!
This class is perfect for anyone who has limited physical ability for any reason or would like to concentrate more on combinations and celebrate the beauty of the dance rather than the focusing on advanced tricks!
