Katie is a fitness freak and we love her. As well as working full time in Sports & Fitness, Katie spends her evenings at Leeds Pole Dance Studio teaching regular pole tricks as well as strength moves. A tomboy as a child, Katie has wowed everyone to become the perfect mix of femininity and strength. Katie is a true cheerleader for her students and loves nothing more than seeing members pick up new tricks and smashing their goals!
Sarah has been in love with pole & aerial for years and we can confidently say that LPDS is her second home (we're sure her husband would argue it's the other way around!). She is one of the most passionate and patient people we've ever met, which you can instantly notice in her classes, all of her students absolutely adore her! Sarah teaches brand new fundamentals and improvers pole courses making more and more people fall in love with this beautiful discipline daily! She's also qualified to teach aerial yoga and passionate about all things off the floor.
June is a bendy superstar! After just a few years and a lot of hard work stretching, June is arguably the most flexible member of the LPDS team. June's passion is bringing flexibility to the pole and helping you guys get bendier! She's also a wonderful and patient instructor, with a wealth of knowledge on how to execute beautiful moves. June is looking at competing much more in the coming years as a result of her recent success as a finalist in Pole Theatre Japan.
Gina is our resident sparkly mermaid. After starting pole dance at university, she quickly fell in love with the exotic and dance side of the art. Gina spends as much time as possible dancing and training and now competes at national level as often as she can. Gina is a passionate and patient instructor and excited to introduce the power of pole dance to the world, which means she gives her all in every class. Teaching flexibility, pole tricks and exotic routines, Gina has something for everyone!
We have moved units to just next door! We are directly opposite the ramp from the carpark and through the door under the "Premier Martial Arts" sign.
