    When I started doing pole I wouldn’t have even considered the fact I would love a form of exercise, now its become a big part of my life! Traditional gyms and classes scare me and the feeling of being judged pushed me away from any sort of sport/fitness. At Altitude I’m not nervous or scared to be doing something wrong or to learn something new

    I wouldn't have believed if I had been told when I started Altitude in 2017 that I would still be here dancing in 2023.

Altitude has been an avenue for me to find so much joy, strength and confidence.

    Sole was initially drawn to pole with the idea of staying fit and trying something new. But the journey of self-discovery and newfound sense of confidence she found blew my mind. When she's not pole dancing, in her free time, you can find me dancing reggaeton. During summer days, you'll catch her sliding across the water on a paddleboard.
