Angela has attended pole workshops and master-classes with some of the world’s best pole dancers and is very passionate about her chosen hobby. She also teaches Lyra.
She loves meeting new people and finds it rewarding to teach others and help them achieve their goals.
Pole fitness has helped Angela to build strength, coordination, flexibility and it is a fun way to get fit and stay in shape!
Jess started poling six years ago with her sister.
She enjoys the strength and flexibility that pole has given as well as building new friendships and interests.
She is passionate about creating fun and challenging routines and testing her flexibility in new tricks!

Claire has been pole dancing on and off for many years.
Fitness is a big part of Claire’s life and in addition to pole dancing she loves rock climbing (indoor and outdoor), going to the gym and has recently started dabbling in silks.
Claire understands what it is like to try a new activity and has a very gentle and nurturing approach to to teaching pole.
Rhiannon (Renny) fell in love with pole back in 2016 at VertiGal and has been addicted ever since.
From climbing trees and hanging around upside down a lot as a kid, the transition to climbing and pole tricks came naturally to her, though the dancing side did not come as easily. Still, she enjoys all aspects of pole.
Renny loves all things tricks, flips and bendy things and loves to dabble in some doubles with her pole bestie, Rachel.
Renny loves the strength and confidence that comes with doing pole and is excited to take this new step, which is as an instructor at VertiGal.
Linda is currently taking a break from teaching pole dancing. She has been part of the VertiGal family since VertiGal opened in 2011.
She is a keen rock climber, but her interest in aerial arts has quickly taken over her spare time.
She loves that it is super fun and feels more like playing, rather than working out.
The social aspect is also a highlight for her. Linda has two daughters that are often with her at the studio, both love to have a spin and be mum’s little doubles partner.
