Meet your Instructors



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 fifteen 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 students 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."

Bio coming soon.



Hoop Dance

My name is Lindsay and I've been hula hooping for 10 years. 

Hooping has made such a positive impact on my life -- both mentally and physically. I want to create a safe space for everyone to enjoy... to express themselves and teach others how to dance at every skill level and connect to their own body. Community and supporting individuals in their growth means so much to me. I hope everyone who takes my class finds a new and exciting way to express themselves. Lets create art through movement, come flow with me!



Pole 2

Poling for Introverts

Hi, polers! My name is Tess or Sunnii (sunny). Either way I'm here to brighten your day! I've been poling for 4 years going on 5 and I love it! It is everything fitness and finesse for me -- empowering and *so* much fun. I love teaching and I'm excited to be back at the home studio where I started my journey. Let's dance!!!



Pole 3

Basework & Fluidity

Claire started pole dancing in 2015, coming from a background of gymnastics and pole vaulting. High-flying flippy tricks are her favorite things about pole, but she has dabbled in many aspects of pole, from the heels and sultry side to flowy barefoot dance. She loves to help students on the path to nailing that next big move and is here to spot, physically and/or emotionally.


Claire is Elevated Levels 1 & 2 certified.

Inversion Training

After encountering pole dance at a bachelorette party and an LGBT+ benefit event, Eric was captivated by strength, skill, and grace of the dancers.  Determined to add this to his fitness regimen, he began taking classes in 2017 with Delaware Pole Fitness.  Since then he has found a deep love for the sport, and aspires to both push himself and others who share his esteem for poling.  Inversion can be one of the more difficult facets of poling; so the focus is on core conditioning as well as challenging oneself (but not comparing progress to others') in a judgment free and light-hearted environment. Control of motion results in a stronger body, and a more liquid performance!



Turn Up Dance Fitness

My name is Khyanne, like the pepper! I have been a member and instructor of Turn up Dance Fitness since February 2022. While attending Turn Up classes a year prior at the YMCA, I fell in love with the positive vibes, fun choreography, and results of Turn Up. It has made such a significant change within myself... life in general. It’s given me so much confidence and has enhanced my own self-love. I absolutely love dancing, tapping into my alter ego, and  letting loose in choreography while getting a full workout. Can’t wait for everyone to experience this empowering dance fitness class!



It's Tricky!
