Ruth

Owner, Lead Instructor

Ruth has been immersed in the world of arts from the age of 4, beginning with ballet, tap, and jazz. She brings thirteen years of instruction and competition to her teaching with concurrent yoga, ballroom dance, and fitness pursuits. She believes in movement as both a healing art and as a form of personal expression. There is a strong focus on correct alignment and form. Variations for poses and sequences allow for all levels to find an appropriate balance of challenge and comfort while developing inner awareness.

 

"No matter what shape, size, age, or skill level... everyone supports each other and becomes a family. It is important that the womxn taking a pole class feel comfortable with their bodies and external interpretation of who they are inside. If there is any way to help improve your self-awareness and confidence, I will strive to get you there."

Shera

AfroBeat Fusion

Body Language

Twerk

I have been dancing since 2006, participating in multiple showcases, performances, and dance teams. Most of my dancing focused in a fusion of African, to Afrobeat, to Hip hop. During that time I taught different audiences how to move into Afrobeat and help them realize that it truly is a class for everyone. Teaching now at Floorplay is great experience; I enjoy it and look forward to teaching you all.

Shera is available for privates, parties, and online lessons.

Lexi

Burlesque

Lexi started her pole and aerial fitness journey at Awakenings Pole Fitness in 2015. There she fell in love with the empowering strength and expression she was able to create through aerial dance. She spent many years training there and began exploring more forms of sensual expression, finding a passion for burlesque. She soon joined the Dark Angels Burlesque troupe, which she now co-produces and hosts their shows under the name Anakis. Lexi has also enjoyed learning and performing hula hoop dance since 2012 and has previously taught classes for hoop at the Siegel JCC. Lexi has grown very passionate about fitness throughout her life and believes movement is vital to mental and physical health and believes bodies of all shapes and sizes deserve to enjoy self expression through movement.
