Dance is Maria’s life and passion.

An artistic gymnastic from the age of 5, champion rhythmic gymnastic at 12, Maria’s love of movement inspired her to audition for a prestigious contemporary dance school at just 16 years old. She was the youngest dancer to be accepted. After three years at this school, she received the call to dance for the Teatro San Martin Contemporary Dance Company, which she danced for several years before travelling to Australia with her young family in 2005.

It was not long until Maria found a new passion, for pole dance. The shapes and movements she creates, especially with her dance background, are nothing short of stunning. Maria drew on all of her skill and artistry, entering many competitions over the past few years.

Maria’s accolades to date include:
2014 – All Stars (Finalist)
2014 – Queensland Pole Championships (Winner)
2014 – Miss Pole Dance QLD (Winner)
2014 – Aerial All Stars (Finalist)

Liz Roberts

Pole Instructor

Liz began dancing in 2011 as part of her recovery from chronic illness. Despite having no background in dance or gymnastics, she quickly fell in love with both pole and the community.

 

Liz has a strong focus on giving her students the proper techniques they need to train and dance without injury. One of her greatest joys is sharing her love of all things aerial and celebrating success with friends and students in the studio. 

 

In 2013 Liz placed runner up in the amateur division of the ACT Pole Championships and competed as an amateur in the national final of the Australian Pole Championships. https://youtu.be/ZLZ9e1KHDDM

Recently returning to pole after having children, Lis is determined to continue pushing the boundaries of her strength and flexibility. Working hard to reenter the competitive pole arena, she is a finalist in Pole Expressions 2019.
