I started recreational pole dancing about six years ago, armed with a closet rod and Fawnia's original instructional VHS tape. Years later, I had the opportunity, through pole dance instruction, to share my passion with others and secure a bit of economic freedom for myself. I wanted credibility for my business and I knew that a certification from Fawnia, the pole fitness pioneer, would be immediately recognized and respected in the developing industry.

Fawnia's teaching style is positive and engaging. Her classes are upbeat and unintimidating, regardless of the experience level of her students. She fosters an open dialogue, eliciting questions and insight and encouraging us to personalize the experience for what will best serve our respective clientele. She is dedicated to helping her students succeed in their entrepreneurial adventures, and even provided private instruction to accommodate my very tight schedule.

As the availability of certifications grows with the industry, Fawnia's courses should still be considered the gold-standard in pole dance instruction. Her grace and fluidity retain the sensual connection to the dance, and her attention to fitness and safety advance the evolution from pole dancing to pole fitness. Her expertise in both arenas provides instructors with unmatched balance and professionalism in their business undertakings.
