Arabelle aka @arabelledancer

Arabelle is a pharmacy nerd by day and pole dancer by night. She took her first pole dancing class at PDA in 2018, wanting to try something different after having been a competitive cheerleader for 6 years.

Pole quickly became Arabelle’s passion, spending as much time as possible in the studio to improve her skills. Arabelle has a love of all aspects of pole dancing, especially flexy tricks up the pole and sensual floorwork. She also loves the pole community and the many friendships she has made along the way.

Arabelle believes teaching is the perfect way to share this with others who are new to pole dancing.

Lenka aka @lenka_lon

Lenka discovered pole dancing in London, when an antigravity yoga Groupon voucher led her to a pole studio, which has quickly become her daily retreat from the stresses of a big city corporate life.

Since moving to Sydney in 2017, she has found love for skinny brass spinning poles, sexy style and heels!

She finds flexibility training to be the most exciting part of her pole journey, understanding how our bodies can transform through correct training and perseverance. Having started teaching in January 2018, she finds nothing more satisfying than seeing her students grow from baby polers to confident, strong, mesmerising pole goddesses.

Naty aka @natita_uh

Naty started pole dancing in Peru in 2011, one year later, it became more than a passion, but a way of life. By 2014 Naty had visited Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, and New York pole studios to build her knowledge and expertise.  In 2016 she decided to travel to Sydney to take classes at PDA to improve her style and discover more things around “dancing in heels”.
Following her dream, she was one of the first promoters of the sexy style in heels (Classique) in Peru and also diffused chair dance, lap dance and strip dance. Thanks to this, she has now become one of the most renowned exponents of this style in Peru.

Chloe aka @chloepoledancer

As a qualified personal trainer, she has a very focused approach to training, always working on balancing strength and flexibility.

Chloe also loves to see her students succeed and smile through each class, helping students achieve goals and breakthroughs with challenging moves is why she loves to teach.
