PDC Approved 4 star pole dancing instructor Jai Simeone.
Jai Simeone is a master trainer for PolePeople and she has an extensive dance background. Jai received her 2 references from fellow PDC approved instructors Stefania Roberto and Chantal Wood.
Chantal said "Jai is a very experienced pole instructor as well as being a qualified personal trainer and dance instructor. She teaches in a methodical and structured fashion and keeps the safety of her students at the heart of everything she does. Her teaching style is engaging and fun and her students are fiercely loyal to her. She demonstrates a level of professionalism that I wish was more prevalent in the pole industry."
Stefania said "From the private sessions given to myself and my boyfriend I found Jai to be professional, friendly, energetic and highly knowledgeable within the field of pole. She had the ability to mold her teaching to different requirements as both myself and my partner (Male) who was having the class also, had different needs. She was encouraging and even as a 4star instructor myself, with over 15 years experience, was able to take something new from her tuition.
I also follow her social media feeds and see she keeps working to improve herself and is a much loved member of the pole community giving positivity from afar."
An additonal reference was provided by the creator of the Pole People training course Alison Hudd who said "Jai is an outstanding Instructor with 12 years experience teaching pole to all levels from Absolute Beginner to Super Advanced/Expert/Professional.

She successfully teaches a full range of class types – Polepeople Structured 6 week Courses, One-to-Ones, group DropIn classes, Party classes, Pole Choreography classes, the Polepeople SkillsActive/ REPs accredited Instructor Courses, inhouse teacher training, Press classes etc etc.
