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."

Pole 2

Low Flow (lvl 2)

Ashley's pole journey began in 2016 while exploring different dance styles in an effort to explore movement and gain flexibility. She fell in love with the versatility that pole dance offered and loved how it helped her to build strength, grace, and confidence. Her personal teaching philosophy focuses on "safety, style, and smiles" as she aims to help her students discover and develop their own personal dance style while remaining safe and having fun.

Ashley is XPERT 1 & 2 certified.



Pole Tricks (lvl 3)

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!
