Valerie

Valerie, a Columbus native, was dancing and involved in the arts from the time she was kid up through adulthood training in lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, belly dance, salsa, ballroom. In 1999 she began dancing in an exotic dance club and eventually quit to devote time to her new born daughter. After a few years of working in various gyms and teaching dance and fitness classes she decided she really missed the pole, way she felt dancing, and the shape she’d been in from it. She began working for a brand new pole studio that opened in 2005, fulfilling her dream of teaching pole dance, and quickly became manager of the studio. In 2007, after deciding it was time to do things her way she opened her own studio. Valerie started out renting space by the hour, doing private lessons in home, etc and eventually grew into opening her own studio. She has performed pole and aerial all over Columbus and the Midwest and was honored in early 2013 introduced pole to the Arnold Sports Festival for the first time ever. Valerie is CPR certified, group fitness certified and has a personal training certification through NCCPT.

Jessica

My love for the aerial and circus arts started in a similar way to many other folk: I  was mesmerized by a Cirque du Soleil show. It wasn’t until I saw a friend from rock climbing posting performance videos that I realized it was an attainable and  amazing goal. I immediately sought out lessons and never stopped. I am certified  through Aerial Physique to teach beginner classes and have done a few studio and  product launch performances on silk.
