Hi, my name is Tabitha, the head pole dancer at Bewitched Pole Fitness. I first started pole dancing June 2009 and fell in love with this fantastic mix of dance and fitness! Before starting I could barely lift a 4kg weight, now I can fling my body and hold my own weight no problem!
I loved pole fitness so much I trained as much as I could and progressed super-fast! I am always discovering new moves to try and want to push myself to be better at pole, and this is something I hope that I can share and motivate others with to get fit!
Pole dancing, aerial hoops and silks has made me feel more fit, confident and sexy; I hope to pass this confidence on to others.

I've been dancing since age 4, covering styles from ballroom, to Irish, to street dance. I first tried pole in 2014 and fell in love with it straight away! Since then I've also taken up aerial hoop and silks which have all helped me to develop and improve my strength and flexibility.
I am qualified as a level 2 Exercise to Music fitness instructor. This plus my extensive dance background means I feel confident in teaching technical moves and choreography - making it easy to follow with lots of progression options.
I have trained my ratchet floorwork skills with Kitty Velour and twerked with Odette Johnson. My favourite part of pole is the dance aspect. I love putting moves together and creating combinations that flow, and I especially love doing this in my 8" stripper heels. I embrace its sexiness and encourage everyone to let out their dirty side.
The same goes for twerk, I aim for my students to feel relaxed and unapologetic about shaking their booties. I find both styles help with body and mental confidence as well as being great fun.
The main reason I wanted to start teaching was because of how friendly and supportive the pole community is. It has become my second family and the pole studio my home away from home. I hope to make others feel just as welcome and encouraged in coming to class whatever their personal goal.
