Shelley

Shelley is a true Pole Diva! She was the first instructor employed at Pole Divas Prahran and was lucky enough to be a part of its journey from the very beginning. She has taught beginner pole to many of today's champions and has watched with pride as they turned their hobbies into exciting careers. Shelley is returning to pole after taking a long break to raise her two young boys. As a resident of Brighton she is thrilled to be able to teach in her local community. She is a bubbly, fun and energetic teacher with an ability to make each and every student feel confident and strong.

Shelley placed 3rd in Miss Pole Victoria 2006. Shelley was also a finalist at the very first two MPDA ever - Miss Pole Dance Australia 2005 where Jamilla Deville won the first MPDA and Miss Pole Dance Australia 2006 where Felix won for the first Miss Pole Australia title!

          



Sarah

"I love teaching as I love to be part of the process of helping women find freedom and fluidity in their bodies and confidence and sass in their attitudes towards themselves and others."

Sarah WON the title of Miss Pole Dance Victoria in 2007. She also judged Miss Pole Dance Victoria in 2012. Sarah has been active in the pole industry for over 10 years. She was one of the first students to ever attend a Pole Divas class - being one of the first Advanced students at Pole Divas. She then went on to teach and contribute to our syllabus 'back in the day'.
Today, she is a trained stretch therapist, Yoga & Pilates instructor and has over 20 years experience as a remedial massage therapist.

Sarah is known for her slow flowing movement and as an instructor she is known for the ability to break down technical movements!

Maddy

Maddy was born a performer! With over 18 years of experience in dance with styles such as jazz, tap, hip-hop, contemporary, ballet and cheerleading she wanted to try something new and exciting, when she took her first class at Pole Divas with the fabulous Davina and swears she will never look back! Maddy has always loved exercising and lives a busy lifestyle presently working as a qualified personal trainer/gym instructor, kids swim teacher and in childcare, and is now very proud and excited to be part of Pole Divas!
She wants to pass on her enthusiasm and love of dance to her students so they can feel sexy and confident with themselves. In her words 'I'm Addicted to Pole dancing because it's the only sport where you can wear short shorts and stripper heels and still get an amazing workout while feeling sexy and having fun!'
   

Emma

Emma has been dancing since the age of 3, covering a vast range of dance styles over the years including; ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary and aerobics. Most recently adding pole dancing to the list. Emma joined Pole Divas Mornington in 2011 and has loved it ever since. It wasn’t long until a pole found home in Emma’s art studio amongst her paints and textiles. Emma is currently in her third year of a Bachelor Arts in Textile Design. Her love for costumes and all things magical ties in well with dance culture. Emma thinks Pole dancing is a great way to stay fit amongst like-minded girls, it gives you a chance to have a boogie and exercise at the same time. Emma wants to share the fun, enjoyment and feeling of mastering new tricks and routines with others.
