This class is taught by:

Melissa G

Melissa first started pole dancing 8 years ago when pole dancing first came to Toronto and has been hooked ever since. Her love of teaching women to be confident in themselves and their abilities has sparked a love for teaching that inspired her to obtain her Bachelor of Education.Not only is Melissa certified to teach all levels of pole at Brass Vixens, but she is also a certified FlyGym instructor. Melissa’s love for aerial arts has driven her to take classes from world class pole dancers and also sparked an interest in circus arts which she infuses into her daily classes. Melissa has a true passion when it comes to teaching and hopes that this shines through in all of her classes and inspires others to reach their goals and follow their dreams.

Chona R

Discovered pole dancing in 2006 - quickly fell in love with the pole and hasn’t looked backed. Chona immediately started instructing in 2007 and her love of pole has led her to many other avenues of aerial fitness. She is constantly on the go, enhancing her skills by attending Pole Camp in St. Maarten to workshops at the Pole Convention (West Palm Beach, FL) and Pole Expo (Las Vegas). Along with her certification at Brass Vixens, she also received her Pole Dance Instructor Certificate (PDIC) through Pole Fitness Studio Las Vegas which is aligned with the Pole Fitness Association, Hoop Certificate with Hoopnotica (2010), FlyGym Certification (2013) and recently completed ElevATED Pole Fitness Level 1 certification in NYC (2014).

Shani H

Shani took her first pole dance class four years ago at Brass Vixens and has never looked back! Now teaching pole dance classes and Twerk classes, Shani offers her unique mix of hip hop, dancehall and afro style dance to pole dance. She encourages us to embrace our curves and femininity while we tone and build the booty of our dreams in Twerk class!

Lady Kori

Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Kori received a multidisciplinary education in the arts including formal training in theatre, Classical and Jazz Ballet, West African, Modern and Contemporary dance.
