Quick Bio on yourself…..
I grew up competing in gymnastics and always loved the dance and artistry side of the sport. Finding pole gave me a chance to express that side of myself more than I ever could as a gymnast and yet still throw myself upside down and around. I started pole in UK and when I moved back to New Zealand I opened up my own dance studio, Altitude Pole. Over the past years I have been getting into bigger and bigger competitions, until last year I placed 2nd at the Pole World Cup in Rio and 4th at World Champs in Zurich. I have loved all the experiences I have gotten to have because of pole and love the passion people all over the world have for it.

Over 4 years now.
