Owner, Lead Instructor
Ruth has been emerged 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 ladies 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."

There are no rules to pole; it’s open to individual uniqueness while giving many the opportunity to explore. Pole has helped me to develop confidence and body exploration that continuously builds. Having done ballet on-and-off in my childhood, I feel so grateful to have found an outlet that gives me a similar feeling of beauty and grace. My wishes in teaching is to help those seeking to get more comfortable with embracing their unknown...
