Chair Dance & Pole Instructor
Hannah is here for all things tits, hips and bootylicious in the world of pole dance, chairography and floorwork!
Coming from a dance background as a child, and trying out a few different pole fitness studios in her uni days, Hannah finally found her love for pole dance back in 2018 after slipping on her first pair of heels and then following her first in-house performance at her local pole studio she was hooked!
Along her pole journey, Hannah was also introduced to dance and movement within chair and floorwork choreography, a few more performances later this soon became a passion that she knew she wanted to develop and share with others! She specifically loves dancing in heels and the confidence/empowerment they give when dancing is just on another level!
In 2022 she finally bit the bullet, completed her qualification with XPERT in Essential Science of Heels and began teaching chair choreo classes as well as hosting several workshops across different studios
Mara has dancing for over 20 years, as well as many years of figure skating and musical theatre. Put me on a stage and I will do the thing. Because I love it.
Mara has been performing burlesque for 3 years now and she is loving being able to pass on her love for performing and help others develop their confidence and skills to reflect their uniqueness.
"I’ve loved breaking into burlesque, and feel lucky to have found such diverse classes. I’m more confident than ever and would invite (literally) anyone to have a go."
