Intro. to Pole Dancing

This class is taught by:

Amie A.

Amie Archut is a trained and seasoned dance professional whose passion for dance is evident in everything she does, from teaching to performing. Amie has been a student of dance since she was just 10 years old, training in Ballet, Gymnastics, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop and Salsa. She attended the Philadelphia Creative and Performing Arts High School as a dance major and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education from Florida International University. While living in Miami, Amie discovered the art of Pole Dancing. She began training in pole in 2011 and brings her technical dance background into everything she does. It was also while in Miami that Amie took her first yoga class in 2007 and instantly fell in love. After moving back to Bucks County, PA Amie decided to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a certified yoga instructor. Amie completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training program in the summer of 2014. Along with her yoga certification she is also a Reiki level II practitioner and incorporates this beautiful healing technique into all of her classes. Amie hasn't wasted any time in putting her degree in Education to use, as she has taught a variety of classes including Salsa, Zumba, Yoga and Pole fitness. In 2014 Amie achieved her greatest accomplishment yet, becoming the owner of Elite Pole Fitness. Amie has put her heart and soul into becoming the best teacher and leader she can possibly be, and is constantly striving to learn more about Pole, Yoga, and business. Her drive, ambition, and passion is evident in everything she does.

Rachel P.

Rachel Paul began training circus arts in 2008 and has since traveled the US and Mexico to perform as an aerialist. She began her pole adventure in 2014 at Elite Pole & Fitness and immediately fell in love. After only a year, Rachel was invited to join the Elite Pole Teacher Training Program, an extensive pole teaching and assisting program offered to qualified students here at Elite. Since completing her training Rachel has become one of our head instructors at Elite, with the ability to teach all levels and styles! She continues her pole education by traveling the world to train with as many instructors as possible. 

Jessica Paris

Jessica has been pole dancing for 4 years. Though she's had no previous formal dance training she fell in love with the art and the strength that comes along with this unique and fun workout. Being a working musician has helped with dancing to the rhythm of the music, while being an Army Veteran has given her the determination and strength to keep advancing in her pole fitness journey. Jessica has performed in multiple Pole Showcases and most recently Jessica completed the 2017 Elite Pole Teacher Training program. Jessica brings a fun and lighthearted atmosphere to all of her pole classes.

Heather Chow

Heather (also known lovingly as 'Chow') started her love of dance when she was just 9 years old. She studied as many styles as she could up until she went to college. After graduating, she wanted to rekindle her love of dance through trying something new. In 2015 a coworker told her about Elite Pole & Fitness, where she took her first class and has never looked back. Heathers dance background helped her advance quickly and in 2017 Heather was invited to join the Elite Teacher Training Program, an extensive teaching and assisting program offered here at Elite. Shortly after finishing the training program, Chow was brought on as a regular instructor on our weekly schedule. She pulls on her knowledge of dance to bring her own unique style and technique to the classroom and performance stage. 

Akayla Butler

Akayla began pole fitness in 2015 and fell in love with it immediately. She was a cheerleader for 9 years and naturally gravitated towards pole after graduating high school. Akayla's cheerleading background has helped her achieve impressive pole strength and in 2017 Akayla completed the Elite Pole Teacher Training Program. She is currently a student at Rowan University where she studies Health and Exercise science and is working towards her personal training certification. She is also a group fitness instructor, helping others to accomplish their weight loss goals. When she's not working or studying she loves to train, eat, read and try new things. In the November of 2017 she participated in her first pole competition. It lit a fire in her and she is excited to keep performing for others in the future. She hopes to continue a lifetime of fitness and fun.
This is our first level at Elite! If you are new to pole you must take Intro as your very first class. We will learn how to spin, climb, and sit on the pole, along with strength training techniques to help you advance to Pole Level 1. No prior experience necessary for this class.
