The son of a prominent dance teacher and studio owner, Mark Francis started training in ballet, tap, and jazz at a young age. However, after taking his first pole dancing class, Mark discovered a new passion; it was love at first spin. Since this first class, Mark has dedicated his life to pole and other aerial arts, hoping to turn his new love into a career. He is now certified in Xpole Xpert and is in the process of receiving his Personal Training/Pilates certifications. He also recently completed the work study program at Body and Pole Aerial Arts Studio in NYC, where he trained with some of the top athletes from around the world. Mark currently freelances as a pole and aerial instructor and performer.
