FOUNDER & OWNER OF POLE & AERIAL DIVAS RICHMOND
|Kennetta Hutchens is the founder and franchisor of Pole Divas; one of
the most internationally recognised and respected names in the pole
dance industry. After the success of her first studio opening in 2004,
Kennetta channelled her drive and focus into creating a franchise model
which encompasses all aspects of commercial success and professionalism.
The result has been the creation of four successful franchises and one
company studio under the iconic brand that is Pole Divas.
In 2011, Kennetta once again pioneered a new fitness
revolution, with the launch of Aerial Divas; the world's first dedicated
aerial hoop studio. Today, two Pole Divas locations boast beautiful
Aerial Divas studios where each student has their very own apparatus;
which had not previously been offered in the aerial industry.
Kennetta is recognised as a successful event producer;
beginning with Pole Divas first amateur competition ‘Unleashed’ in 2005,
expanding to ‘Miss Pole Dance Victoria’ from 2005-2012 in which the
event evolved from being hosted in nightclubs to an 800 seat theatre.
Kennetta currently produces Aerial All Stars, a two night pole and
circus art competition spectacular which is the first of its kind in
Australia as well as Unleashed, Aerial Unleashed & FRISK - A Sexy
Pole Dance Competition!
Her commitment to the continual development of the industry
through support, passion and business knowledge is renowned and has
proven Kennetta a pioneer and leader in the Pole Dancing industry.
Kennetta is now turning her energies to the industry she
feels so passionately about, by speaking at industry events on topics
such as industry growth, branding & systems, and running
competitions, as well as offering business coaching to other studio
owners. In 2013 she spoke about business systems and marketing at the
International Pole Championships held in Singapore. Kennetta was also a
keynote speaker at the inaugural 2015 Pole Studio Owners Conference held
In 2016, Kennetta was announced as the #1 Most Influential Pole Business Owner by the Australian Pole Dancers Magazine, they said, "...the Top 10 have made a big impact on the Australian pole world in the past year!".

“I have continued to work towards the ongoing success of the
pole & aerial industry through my dedication to high standards of
studios, instructors, training and competitions.
I am extremely proud of the amazing event that Rising &
Aerial All Stars was, for both competitors, performers, sponsors and
public alike. Pole & Aerial Divas continued to grow in 2015 taking
on more instructors and staff and making pole more accessible to many
more students! We also introduced new training initiatives for both new
and existing instructors to ensure our ongoing consistent high standard.
I have enjoyed getting more involved with pole studio owners
across Australia, the highlight was being the keynote speaker at the
Pole Studio Owners Conference where I discussed the growth of the
industry so far, and strategies for establishing ourselves as a part of
the fitness industry in the future.”
"I started Pole Dancing at Pole Divas in 2005 and instantly fell in love. It was not just the dancing I loved, it was the whole concept of Pole Divas.
Working in the fitness industry and being an aerobics instructor at the time, I knew this was my next step in life so it did not take me long to contact Kennetta and open my own Franchise...by 2006 Pole Divas Mornington was born!
Being the first franchise owner it was a bit daunting, but the process was smooth and fast to say the least. Kennetta worked closely with me to help it get off the ground and her passion for the brand gives you confidence to know you will never be alone. It's always about Pole Divas as team and we succeed as a team. Each time a new Franchisee comes on board we all get excited to have a new business partner to bounce ideas off and make our brand even more successful.
Everyday I walk into work, I smile that I have my very own successful business within one of the biggest pole dancing brands. It can’t get much better than that!”
Davina Currie, Pole & Aerial Divas Mornington Owner & Franchisee since 2006
"I started pole dancing at the Prahran studio back in 2005 and was lucky enough to become an instructor there a few years later. After seeing the incredible effects pole dancing had on my students’ confidence and self-esteem I realised that Pole Divas didn’t just offer physical fitness, but also a mental challenge and an opportunity for women to express themselves in a supportive and welcoming environment.
I wanted to provide this experience for women in the western suburbs and there was no doubt that Pole Divas was the way to do it. I loved the style and vibe of the classes and wanted to stay part of what I believe is the leading brand of pole fitness in Australia. Seven years later I can confidently say it was the best decision I ever made!"
Tania Fletcher, Pole Divas Moonee Ponds Owner & Franchisee since 2009
"I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to purchase the existing Pole Divas Prahran studio as a franchise. For me, I didn’t want to just own a ‘pole studio’ but specifically I wanted to own a Pole Divas studio. Being a student at Pole Divas for years and later a receptionist, I was always very impressed by the professionalism of the brand, the quality of the class structures & syllabus and the friendly environment found in all studios.
Since becoming a franchisee, I have received and continue to receive a lot of support not only from Head Office, but from the other franchisees as well. I feel very blessed to be part of such a well-known and respected franchise and would encourage anyone who has a genuine love for Pole Divas to get involved and join us too!"
Eleanor Hadley, Pole Divas Prahran Owner & Franchisee since 2013
"From my very first beginners course, I knew I wanted to own a Pole Divas studio. I remember reading the teacher bios on the Pole Divas website and reading that my instructor, Tania Fletcher, was a studio owner. I was so inspired that such a young woman could own such a professional, beautiful and friendly studio. I was keen to do the same.
As time went on, my passion only developed further. I loved everything about Pole Divas; the people, the curriculum and the positive benefits it had on my physical and mental health.
In January 2016, Pole Divas Caroline Springs opened, and it is definitely my favourite place in the world! I feel so lucky to spend my days and nights helping women achieve their fitness goals, and feel confident and comfortable about themselves and their bodies in the process. I also get to work with the most amazing people, from my very own staff to all of the franchisees, the director of training and of course Kennetta Hutchens, the franchisor. All of whom have helped me whenever required, at every step along the way."
Kristy Janin, Pole Divas Caroline Springs Owner & Franchisee since September 2015
TRAINING DIRECTOR - Philippa Rasidi
|I am passionate about the pole industry, the quality of instructors and the health and fitness benefits for the minds and bodies of the men and women I teach. This passion led me to take on the Training Director role at Pole Divas looking to ensure the safest and most skilled instructors are available to the students. After 7 years in the pole industry from student to teacher and international competitor, I have been taught by some of the best teachers and pole dancers in the world and am excited to teach, coach and mentor others on their pole journey whether that be to compete, get fit or love their body.
As Pole Divas expands and evolves, and as leaders in the Australian pole community, the Director of Training role is pivotal in ensuring the Pole Divas instructors have the best possible training opportunities available to them. Our structured syllabus in both static pole, spin pole and hoop requires the need for regular training throughout the year taken by the level coordinator. Giving creative license and responsibility to our instructors not only benefits their professional growth but also ensures there is consistency of teaching and quality control across all of our franchises. Being able to adapt level content to keep up with the ever changing pole community while maintaining smooth progression for students as they climb the levels is how we have created a system that encourages individual dance style, promotes health and fitness and builds body confidence and self esteem.
The Pole Divas team attend development days to stay connected as we grow and are provided with specialized training sessions to teach new workshops, casual classes and syllabus levels. Instructors are therefore equipped to do the best job possible in a class environment and also inspired to take the stage and represent Pole Divas in the country’s most prestigious competitions!
