Hello, my name is India. I began pole dancing in 2011 and it’s truly gotten into my blood. Now, when I’m not dancing… I’m thinking about dancing!  I have been hooked from the very start.  Before I started pole dancing I used to go to the gym once or twice a week, but each session felt like a tedious chore. I decided I needed a change, I wanted to find a different, more exciting way to keep fit, something that I could look forwards to....that's when I discovered pole dancing.  For me pole dancing is the perfect blend of dance and sport, two of my great passions in life!  I love all aspects of pole, but most of all I love how each individual can make it their own and express themselves freely.

As a PDC Approved (3 star) Instructor I represent the highest level of professionalism and teaching quality within the pole fitness industry. I am also qualified as a grading assessor. Click here to see article on India written by PDC.

  

I am proud to be trained by XPERT Pole & Aerial Fitness. It is an award winning program and is one of the largest Pole & Aerial teacher training programs worldwide.
