Intro Class


This class is taught by:

Megg Kupres

Hometown: Saugatuck, MI
Favorite Songs To Dance To: "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard, "6 Inch" by Beyonce, "River" by Bishop, "Down With The Sickness" by Disturbed and anything by In This Moment and Rihanna.
Favorite Quote: "What can we do, rejoicing and honoring, to show our respect? We can heal. We can cherish our bodies and honor them...For the body is not the dwelling place of the spirit--it is the spirit. It is not a tomb, it is life itself."~ Paula Gunn Allen
Why I Teach At Flirt: Flirt gave me the sense of community I have always wanted. I started as a student with little to no confidence in my body and in my beliefs. What a transformation it has been! I am grateful for everything Flirt has given me, and it just felt natural to become an instructor. These are my people.
What I Want For My Students: I want my students to feel welcome. I want to contribute to a safe space where women can be creative and express themselves without judgement. I want everyone I encounter to feel supported mentally, physically, emotionally and even spiritually.
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: I take sensuality and creative expression very seriously. I believe it is important for women to have environments conducive to both of these.

Marchella Walsh

Hometown: Detroit, MI
Favorite Songs To Dance To: I love dancing to slow songs at the studio because each movement is meaningful.
Favorite Quote: "Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try." ~ Mary Kay Ash
Why I Teach At Flirt: I teach at Flirt for the sisterhood and the friendships that I have made over the past year. I have met some amazing women who inspire me daily.
What I Want For My Students: I want my students to understand that this is a journey, and journeys take time. I want all of the women I work with to leave feeling confident and beautiful - each and every week!
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: When I started taking classes at Flirt in October 2013, I had no idea ho much that decision would impact my life. I love that this is my "job" and I feel blessed to be a part of this positive shift in the world of fitness.

Justine Helsen

Hometown: Ravenna, MI
Favorite Songs To Dance To: My song choice really varies on my mood. I typically like songs with heavy emotion/meaning; something I can really relate to and pour my heart out through my movement. While other times all I want to dance to is something slow and sexy! Here are some of my favorites: Say You Love Me – Jessie Ware, Self-Conclusion – The Spill Canvas, Castle - Halsey, Dance for You – Beyoncé, Wildfire - Tinashe
Favorite Quote: “It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments when you are truly yourself.”
Why I Teach At Flirt: Teaching pole and inspiring women gives me so much fulfillment and I believe with all of my heart that this is my calling in life. To have the opportunity to inspire and guide women through their pole journey as my instructors did for me is an honor. I believe in everything this studio stands for. As instructors, we are here to not only help you learn the art of Pole Fitness but, also, to learn the art of becoming a stronger, more confident you!
What I Want For My Students: I want my students to truly gain everything they hoped to gain from Flirt Fitness and MORE! I want my students to truly fall in love with themselves. I want to see them wear their bodies with great pride; loving every inch of their uniqueness. I want the wall size mirrors in the studio to no longer be a voice for their insecurities, but a FRIEND that gives them a clear reminder of their true beauty and strength. If my students walk out of the studio each week feeling confident, sexy, strong, and full of self-worth then I will know I am fulfilling my duties as an instructor.
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: Flirt Fitness is not just a “Pole Studio”, it’s also a safe haven built of a community of amazing women who are ready to welcome you into our lives as our sister. This studio has become my sanctuary where I can strip down all of my insecurities and express myself through my movement and I’m sure every woman at this studio would say the same for themselves. And, though taking the first step can be intimidating, I promise you, you will thank yourself for taking that courageous first step as you watch your life transform for the better... I can’t wait to meet you!!!

Amy Bitely

Hometown: Bailey, MI
Favorite Songs To Dance To: "Fever" by Michael Buble or "Dirty Diana" by Michael Jackson
Favorite Quote: "Half glass, full attitude."
Why I Teach At Flirt: To be a role model that anyone can do this, regardless of age, body type, personality, etc
What I Want For My Students: To experience the same level of comfort and joy as I do.
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: I make the best apple pie (or at least I think so..) - it's all about the homemade crust!

Deana Haines

Hometown: Grand Rapids, MI
Favorite Songs To Dance To: It depends on how I am feeling... Porn Star Dancing, Just A Fool, GirlCrush, Often, The Hills, songs with explicit lyrics (yes, I admit that), Young and Beautiful, Say You Love Me... anything that helps express a feeling or feed a need at a particular time.
Favorite Quote: "Always do what you are afraid to do." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Why I Teach At Flirt: I started taking classes at Flirt when it was at the original studio in EastTown. I have been an anxious person my entire life, and wanted to challenge my anxiety and push myself out of my comfort zone. I met Amy (founder of Flirt) and I asked her if she thought I really could learn pole. I honestly had no idea how much this would help my confidence and just make me feel good. I love the amazing connection I experience when I am at Flirt. It nurtures my soul. The bottom line is that I love people and I love helping people.
What I Want For My Students: I want to help create an environment for them to allow themselves to be vulnerable and try new things, without the worry of being judged. I want them to feel supported, loved, and encouraged.
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: If you think you are uncoordinated and clumsy... we are kindred spirits. It usually takes me longer to learn new things, but I think this helps me with my teaching, because I've experienced struggles and also really appreciate when something finally clicks in my brain. I have a tendency to say silly, goofy things(my family, students, and friends will agree with this), but I have a big heart and love people. I love animals, especially cats. (Shoot, I think that was more than one last thing.)

Alexis Furney

Hometown: Climax, MI
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!!
