I was never a fan of the gym and so started pole dancing and after my first lesson at Vertical Vixen way back in 2006 I was hooked. I have been Poling for many years and now manage the Northriding studio. I love to see new students come in and blossom with confidence as they grow to love their own bodies and realise their unique strength. Vertical Vixen has become like a second family to me where everyone feels safe and confident enough to just be themselves. The Best thing about pole is learning to trust yourself and then realising that you CAN do anything! And the friends you meet along the way are only there to support and encourage you even more.
