"Since popping along to a pole class over 7 yrs ago with my best friend, I have never looked back. Pole dance gave me the confidence to want to take it to the next level. I auditioned for a job as a podium dancer and have been performing around the country ever since! Pole taught me to love exercise and I became a fitness instructor, and personal trainer, I love helping people, loose weight, gain confidence and achieve their goals.
Teaching pole dance is so rewarding, watching my students grow in strength, confidence and fitness is the best gift."
From a young age dance was Laura's first passion.
After completeling a GSCE in Dance she knew this was the path she wanted to follow.

I started pole fitness classes in March 2012 and instantly fell in love with it. Excluding P.E at school; I had no real fitness experience prior to this. Today pole fitness has changed every aspect of my life and made me a confident healthy person, mentally and physically.
In March 2013 I went on the Spin City Beginner Instructor Training course which provided me with the foundations needed to start teaching my own classes. It now brings me great joy to watch my students improve week on week. More recently I started teaching hoop dance classes and set up my own blog - Spinning Love Story.
I am currently in the last year of a film and media degree. I hope in the future to do a personal training qualification and to continue help women to get fit and gain confidence!
I was a gymnast for 9 years and coaching assistant for three years. I started pole to help build my confidence while struggling with severe anxiety and since starting it's helped me to get my life back on track and keeps me motivated.
Thanks to being involved in pole I've learned aerial hoop skills and got the confidence to start teaching gymnastics again.
And Finally.... ME!
I started pole two years ago, wanting to loose weight and gain confidence. In the two years I have done just that, dropping a few dress sizes and had gained enough confidence to enrol in an instructors course. I have been teaching since March 2013 and you thoroughly enjoy helping others reach their personal goals.
Here at L.A Studios, I offer a specially designed class for mums with young children. You can bring your little ones along whilst learning fun new tricks at your own pace and making new friends.
After having a baby my body confidence and self esteem plummeted to a low level , i lost all my strength and turned to pole dancing as a way to bring it back up, with the help of amazing people and an incredible instructor my life has changed x
And I would recommend it to anyone!
And Finally.... ME!
