We want to welcome Christina to our team as a new coach. She will be teaching Pole on Mondays.
Christina started pole during university as a creative way to build strength and flexibility. It only took one class to know she was hooked forever!
Christina is known for her strength based moves and creative combinations, but she also loves to flow it out to lyrical or contemporary songs (although she is beginning to dabble in heels too!).
She is known as an energizer bunny to her students, and you better believe she'll make you work hard in class! She loves watching progression in her students and seeing their confidence grow, and she will be just as excited for her students as they are when they nail a pole move!
We decided to ask her a few questions so you can get to know her better!

Do you play an instrument?
I can tap dance, which is like an instrument played with your feet, right??
If you could live anywhere in the world, where?
What's your favourite thing about teaching?
I love inspiring and helping students to find their own style, and to achieve their pole goals. There is nothing more fulfilling as an instructor than a student's excitement from nailing a simple static spin or handspringing for the first time.
Who do you look up to?
All the strong & independent women in my life
If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?
3 wishes in any context is so broad and overwhelming!
Instead, these are my 3 pole wishes:
(1) To never be injured.
(2) To travel the world and train with all the pole superstarzzz.
(3) To be flexible enough to do a rainbow marchenko.
What is your favourite season?
Besides Pole, what do you love doing?
Travelling, playing soccer & Ultimate Frisbee, spending time with family & friends, and dancing around in my kitchen to disco music.
