Bec

Bec's pole journey began at the first Levitate' open day years ago when she watched a group pole performance.  Bec was captivated by the strength, grace and elegance of the sport and signed up then and there!
Ever since, Bec has used pole dancing as a way to restore her self-confidence, build strength and escape the stress of daily life. Along the way Bec has also branched into aerial hoop and loves the strength that comes with it!
Bec is also a qualified osteopath. She is fascinated by how the body works, moves and heals itself and can't wait to use this knowledge to help her students learn and progress along their own pole journeys!

    Kate

    Kate’s obsession with aerial started in 2019 when she joined a trial class for silks. She’d always been fascinated by what the human body is capable of and decided then and there this was the sport she’d been searching for. She’s since found her true love in aerial hoop and a beautiful supportive community to help her along the way.
    Aerial has provided Kate a space to be creative beyond her dreams and to dive out of her comfort zone into competing and performing, both of which she loves the challenge of.
    She also has a training and facilitation background and strives to create a fun and safe learning environment for all students.

      Liz

      Liz found pole dancing back in 2011 and has never looked back.  With 10 years of jazz and tap under her belt and a dedication to training at the gym, pole dancing was the perfect combination of creativity, expression and strength.

      When Liz dances, there is a sense of joy and accomplishment that nothing else can bring.  She loves to impart this same passion to students and see their own personal dance styles flourish and evolve.  

      Liz started competing in 2018 at the Regional Pole artistry championships in Shepparton.  Since then, she has competed at every RPAC since with the achievement of 1st place in the advanced category in 2022.  She has also competed in Floorplay and performed at The Rockit Galas and Eternity: the pole edition.  Liz loves being on the stage and loves to help students see their performance ideas come to life!
