Students at UV deserve to be recognized for their dedication, hard work and the amazing pole progress they make right here at UV. So we’ve decided to start a student spotlight! We are super excited to share an opportunity to get to know our lovely students.

Q: Where are you from?
Born and raised in Toronto
Q: Tell us a bit about yourself outside the studio.
I work for the Ontario Government regulating professional combative sports. I have 2 cats but really one is my baby. I crochet if anyone needs a hat.
Q: How long have you been pole dancing?
I've been pole dancing for just over 4 years
Q: How did you start pole dancing?
I went to a bachelorette party in Montreal and we did the typical bachelorette pole party which was super fun...and I was super sore after and was like damn that's a real workout. I was living in Ottawa at the time and needed a hobby so went to the local pole studio there for 2 months before moving back to Toronto and finding a home with UV.
Q: What is your favourite class and why?
I don't have a favourite class! I go to like 10 classes a week...they're all my favourites.
Q: What surprised you about pole fitness?
I was most surprised at the variety of people and styles. I thought to do pole you needed to be Jenyne Butterfly (aka my first pole video I ever saw 5 years before starting pole) when in fact you can be in any shape, any size, any place in your life and you can still learn.
Q: Why do you love pole?
I love pole because of the amazing community of people. There's a reason I have a pole at home and yet come to the studio everyday. Just awesome babes supporting awesome babes and adults making friends which seriously does not happen anywhere else.
Q: What is your proudest pole moment?
Competing on stage in 8" heels and not falling while walking off!
Q: What is your favourite song to dance to?
OHHHH LORDY THE HARDEST QUESTION EVER!!! I have no favourite song. Anything old school Weeknd. Roads by Portishead. Closer by Kings of Leon. Let's be honest - anything slow and sultry is my jam.
Q: What keeps you coming back to Ultra Violet?
The fact that its a 10 minute drive from my house? KIDDING! The amazing group of instructors that are all so unique and so amazing and once again the awesome community of people.
Q: Any advice to students new to pole?
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO TRY AND DO NOT GIVE UP!!! Yes you will suck and yes it will hurt and yes someone else can always do better BUT THIS IS YOUR AMAZING JOURNEY RIDE THE PAIN TRAIN BECAUSE ITS SO WORTH IT!
Does your pole journey start with a pole party? We got you covered, whatever you’re celebrating - marriage, divorce, birthday or just your own amazing self - a pole party is a great way to get introduced to pole in a comfortable environment with your friends.
