Erin has been Pole Dancing at Defy Gravity since 2012 and is a PDC Level 4 graded and fully insured Pole Dance Instructor and also a qualified Fitness Instructor with Active IQ. You will see Erin in most of the classes Defy Gravity Offer as she is always keen to learn new moves, dances and keep expanding her knowledge of pole.
Erin teaches Beginner to Intermediate level Pole Dance. Erin focuses on teaching safe techniques in a way that is suitable for all abilities and ensures that every class is fun for all involved! Using her Fitness Instructor qualification she has also created a circuit training class called Chrome Core which focuses on Conditioning and Strength and is open to everyone which includes non- Pole Dancers.
Erin first began pole dancing to get stronger, toned and to gain confidence. After just four weeks of starting pole dancing she bought an X-pole, though Defy Gravity, so she could practice what she had learnt in class, as well as show off her new and unusual hobby to others. Now you will find Erin performing on stage showcasing the skills she has learnt and is one day looking to compete.
Here's what Erin says about her journey:
'I enjoy teaching Pole Dancing because I love to see the progression, even in the first few weeks of an intro class you can see a student develop and grow, they become more confident and you can see improvements in their technique and strength. I hope to share my passion for fitness and pole dancing and help others progress in the way I have. I hope to bring as much fun to my classes as I have had learning.'
'When I discuss Pole Dancing with people, most reply with 'I would love to try pole!' When I ask them why they haven't already they usually reply with 'I'm not strong enough' or 'I don't have the confidence'. When I was a beginner I didn't walk into pole class strong and full of confidence, I gained it from taking pole classes. I would encourage everyone to try pole dancing at least once, and trust me, you won't want to stop there!'
'My mission as a Pole Dance Instructor at Defy Gravity is to spread the word and my love for pole to everybody in Pembrokeshire! Age, size or fitness ability doesn't matter, everyone is welcome to my classes and I will try my best to make every last one of you feel happy, sexy and confident in your body and have fun whilst doing it. So if you are reading this I hope to see you in class in the near future!'
