About Fawnia Mondey and Pole Fitness Studio


Pole Fitness Studio is owned by Fawnia Mondey. Fawnia started teaching in 1994 and is known around the world as being the world’s first pole dancing instructor. Fawnia’s goal has always been simple, to teach pole dancing in a safe, supportive, and extremely fun environment. Together with her certified staff, Pole Fitness Studio offers the most variety in classes and since day one, has always offered a private party experience. Quality matters so when you celebrate your birthday or bachelorette party with us, your party will always be private and every lady gets her own pole.

We have two beautiful locations in Las Vegas, with a total of four rooms. Our studio on Arville has three exciting rooms, complete with 17 poles, 11 poles and 3 poles. In our studio on west Sahara we have 10 poles, all 15’ tall! Chill in our lobby with our flat screen TVs, or relax on our patio. Feel like a star with our sexy red lights, spinning disco ball, laser lights, and stereo surround sound. We are looking forward to dancing with you. 


Fawnia was born in the small town of Kamloops, BC Canada. In 1983 she made the move by camper trailer to the beautiful city of Victoria, BC. Fawnia’s interests growing up included running, art (drawing), theatre, and dancing. Fawnia always had a passion for dance however she never took formal training.

“Being part of an elite group that has trained directly with Fawnia has truly set me apart from the rest. By learning from her one-on-one, I have become the only instructor in Pennsylvania certified with Pole Dancing Level 6, which has helped give me and my business an amazing credibility. Her techniques are absolutely amazing and its been an incredible experience working with her.”
