Bryony started acrobatics and modern dance from a young age, performing and doing competitions and exams. She has also done 3 half marathons keen to keep fit and healthy!
Having had a break from dance she found pole dancing at University in 2009 and loved it! She went onto being a strength & stretch teacher at a pole fitness school in Derby, whilst training herself in pole dance & choreography, the enthusiasm carried on.
Bryony ventured off travelling the world for 6 months but took the opportunity to train pole dance in New Zealand and Australia which helped her explore other forms of dance.
She moved to London in 2012 and has continued her passion by training in contortion, aerial stretch, sexy pole choreography, acrobatics and of course pole dance! She has been teaching in London for 2 years and enjoys exploring every single persons background and journey they are about to take.
