Cindy Cooijmans is our latest PDC Approved 4 Star Pole Dancing Instructor.

Cindy Cooijmanns Pole Fitness instructor
Cindy Cooijmanns is known throughout the pole dance world as both a pole dance teacher, respected judge and creator of the Pole Move Box. Cindy received her references from PDC Pioneers KT Coates and Elena Gibson.


Elena Gibson said "Cindy is a great asset to our community, amongst other achievements, she has tirelessly worked to produce the Polemove box which I believe is a great product to be used as source of reference for studios, instructors and students.  She dedicates much of her time and effort to promote pole dancing both in her home country and internationally, Cindy is a very ambitious and positive person who I greatly admire."

KT Coates said "She is the nicest, kindest, selfless person in pole. She does pole because she loves it, she never gets involved in any unpleasantness and she is loved by everyone as an instructor, a business woman and a poler. She is a one off!"

Teaching History:

Cindy has been teaching group classes: Aerobics, Steps, Callanetics, BOSU, Street dance, Jazz dance and Gogo dance since her certifications in 1995. After the birth of her 3 sons, she wanted a new sport challenge, which she found in Pole Dance. After taking a Pole teacher trainer course  she started teaching Pole classes in 2006.

Student's pole dancing success:

“One of my students; Nicole Beerens has won the title Pole Fitness champion 2010. At that moment that was the highest competition you could enter in the Netherlands. I train/help a lot of national and international pole dancers now a days. Helped Yvonne Smink with her TV debut on ‘Everybody Dance Now’ were she made it to the final show. And I’m Hanka’s helpdesk if she needs advise.”

Continuing Professional Development:

Aside from Cindy's many master-classes she also avidly keeps on top of all that is happening within the pole dancing world.

"I read all there is about the Pole Sport, I think I saw almost every DVD and keep attending and organizing workshop and courses to do with Pole.  I like to work and talk with professionals from all around the world, there is still so much to learn!"

Sponsorship (gained or provided):
It is not my goal to gain money with the Pole Move Box. It’s a hobby, so everything I earn goes back into the Pole industry. First by updating the Box every year with more amazing models and the newest moves. And of course by sponsoring events and competitions.
You can find Pole Move Box all over the world. From a small regional or national championships up to the World championships.
From the North and South American, Australia, European to Asia.


Cindy cooijmans Star Fish Pole dancing picturePole Dancing Promotions Involvement:

In the city I live in I started promoting Pole Sport in 2006. I believe everyone in our town is convinced Pole is a Sport now.
I have written may articles for the Dutch press to promote the Pole Sport.
I encourage many of my pole friends to be in television program’s, Hanka showed up in several programs already and one of my friends Flora Gatina, ended in the top 3 of Holland got talent.

Funny story:

In October I was promoting the European Pole Championship, I helped organizing. I phoned the press and television, they said: “ohh but that not news, everyone knows Pole is a sport.” so it looks like we have accomplished that for the Netherland to LOL. (I realise that was only one reporter saying that, so we keep on promotion)

Charity involvement:

Charity involvement:
2007 Guinness World record attempt for Make a wish foundation.
2008-2009-2010 Pole Unity for several charities.
2010 Spring Pole Dance Party for the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
2014 Guinness World record attempt for KWF cancer foundation.
The Pole Move Box donates to charities too. For every Box sold, 5 dollars goes to ‘Timber’s kids’ www.timberbrown.org A great cause from created by a great Pole artist.

 

Pole Dancing Goals & Aspirations:

I would like to keep on enjoying and teaching Pole, as often as possible. I have 5 full enthusiastic group which I teach every week. And every workshop I give (in the Netherlands and Belgium) is filled to the max. I love to keep it that way by staying updated and innovative.

My personal goal would be to make the pole names universal!!! I think if we join hands we can make it happen!!

Cindy's 2017 Activities:

  • In January I officially become UPA’s Pro Poler of the Year 2017
  • Updated all my IPSF certificates (Code of Points, judge and Head judge)
  • Finally finished the IPDFA Master training
  • Organised the World Pole Sports Championship Weekend in July for the IPSF
  • Created a refreshment course for Pole instructors in the Netherlands to keep try and motivate them to take a real instructor course (in Holland people think they know it all and don’t bother to pay for a teacher training. Which bothers me extremely! So I try to make them aware of that you have to keep learning and that they are responsible for a safe and healthy class environment)
  • Workshops I took this year:  Michelle Shimmy, Sarah Scott, Marlo Fisken
  • Workshops still to come this year: Saulo Samiento (he will be in our studio 29th of December to teach workshops)

Sarah Brown from The Pole Studio UK gains 4 star instructor status.


Sarah Brown Approved Pole Dancing Instructor
The Pole Dance Community would like to congratulate Sarah Brown from the Pole Studio UK on her new 4 star status. Sarah Brown received glowing references from fellow PDC Approved Instructors Holly Gibbons (Pole Performance) and Stacey Snedden (Stacey Pole).

 


Holly Gibbons reference - Sarah is a fantastic instructor; she is very approachable and pushes me with my abilities on the pole. Sarah and the Pole Studio offer a great variation of classes; specifically Sarah focuses on the needs of her students and would not hesitant to promote another instructor if she feels they can offer different tricks or combos. Sarah is very supportive towards my own pole school and has even taught my students in her instructor courses. I hope to continue with my own training with Sarah and her instructors at the Pole Studio for years to come.

Stacey Snedden reference - Sarah Brown has developed one of the most respected Pole Studios in the UK, Her management skills and pole skills are amazing and she is a pleasure to work with. I have worked with Sarah on many events and it has always been not only successful but always a pleasure. Sarah is an asset to the pole industry and so are her Pole Studio instructors. Always friendly and welcoming. Sarah has also given me lessons previously and I have found that she is very precise in her instruction and encouraging during each of her lesson.

Holly Gibbons achieves PDC Approved 4 star pole dancing instructor status.


Holly Gibbons Pole Dancing portrait
Holly Gibbons is the principal instructor and proprietor of Pole Performance in East Sussex, she has been a PDC member since 2010 and is active within the pole dance fitness industry. Holly is passionate about changing people's views about pole dancing and dispelling the negative stereotypes that surround fitness pole dancing. We spoke to Holly to find out more about her and her upgrade to PDC Approved 4 star pole dancing instructor;

 

"I am a hard working, well presented, adaptable graduate who is pro-active and motivated in continuously developing professionally. I have solid qualifications and work experience in environments that require self-motivation and a focused approach. I am a dedicated team player who has leadership capabilities, and uses high standards of communication ability.

I started dancing when I was about 2 years old, specifically in ballet. When I was 4 I took up gymnastics, and over the years I attended classes in modern dance, jazz, and hip hop. For my GCSE and A-levels I chose dance as a module. When I started university I was too shy to sign up to any sports teams but felt I needed something to keep my fitness up. I saw pole dancing classes that were taught in a local pub. I learned there for 2 years, when I wanted to take it further, that’s when I found Pole Passion. I received my level 1 pole dancing instructor qualification in November, 2008 and level 2 pole dancing instructor qualification in June, 2009. I have taken part in many master classes run by Pole Passion including training with Felix, Alesia, Maxine Betts, and Amy Richardson.

For 4 years now I have run my own pole fitness classes under Pole Performance at leisure centres in Eastbourne, Hailsham and Falmer. I also run the pole fitness society at Brighton University. It is important to me to get community involvement, and change views towards pole dancing.

This year I organised a master class with Triple XBex, she travelled down to Hailsham, where I invited my students and others from South Pole Akademy and Vertipole to attend. Holly Gibbons Pole Dancing Bomb

I regularly organise pole jams throughout the year, most recently we had one at a nearby studio (Klass) who I teamed up with, so our students could jam together. Pole Performance also hosts an Xmas jam and dinner disco, and yearly garden parties where we put r-poles up and have a BBQ in the garden.

Each year I organise a show case so students can plan then perform routines to their friends, families and fellow students, the last one was on 15th October at Brighton University on their Falmer open day so potential university students could see the type of activities that were available. I also attend Brighton Universities Freshers fairs at the Eastbourne and Brighton campus to do demonstrations and get students involved. Charities are also very important to me, for the Herstmonceux school charity fundraiser I performed at their due and donated a pole dancing class for their raffle.

For the past 6 months I have been training with the Pole Studio at Taylors Retreat with Keem and Sarah Brown, and they have been lovely enough to join me onto their ‘Hire a Dancer’ team.

Future plans are to take level 3 instructor training with the Pole Studio in March 2012, and train some of my students up to become instructors for Pole Performance in the year 2012.

Additional Sporting Achievements:

Volunteering:

Sport Relief Mile, 2008
Team Leader for a group of students volunteering

Ball Girling at the Ladies Tennis Championships at the Devonshire Park, Eastbourne
I learned discipline and leadership, for the last few years I trained other girls to be ball girls and I became team leader for many matches at the tournament. I gained confidence as I took part in two finals.

R-POLE Girl at Taylors Retreat Launch
Kay at Pole Passion gave me the opportunity to be an R-pole girl at the opening of Taylors retreat.

Angel at Miss Pole Dance 2011
Pole Performance LogoHolly received her two 4 star references from PDC Approved instructors Sarah Brown and Helen Knox from the Pole Studio in Surrey.

Helen - I support Holly's application for 4 star instructor status as I believe she has a great love for the sport and throughout my time with her and watching her on the pole I admire her determination and passion for each move she does on the pole. Holly never quits when it comes to learning something new and each lesson I have with her she will always know a new move to show and teach us. Her knowledge of the sport is great and I believe she is a brilliant instructor who can pass on her love of pole dancing to her pupils and others around her.


Sarah Brown from the Pole Studio said "I support Holly’s Level 4 instructor status because Holly is a very experienced and enthusiastic teacher. Her pupils adore her and she shows them constant support. Holly is at an advanced level of pole herself and is continually striving to become even better."

Alice Milner achieves PDC Approved 4 star instructor status.

 

Alice Milner pole fitness picture
Alice Milner is the proprietor and principal instructor at Pole Dancing Bath. Alice is an accomplished fitness professional, pole dance teacher and pole dance performer. Alice received her 2 references from fellow PDC Approved 4 star Pole Dancing Instructors Kate Johnstone and Stacey Snedden:

Reference - Kate Johnstone Spin City- "Having competed against Alice at the Inter Universities Pole Championship we have subsequently worked closely together – especially in setting up Spin City Bath. Alice has a great background in a range of fitness based activities including Yoga and Hula Hooping and brings elements of these to her pole work. Her qualifications including her ETM help her bring a balance approach to her classes teaching an athletic form of pole – focusing on developing both sides of the body and practising safe pole with spotters. I believe she meets all the PDC criteria and would also help work closely with the community to continue developing pole".

Reference - Stacey Snedden Stacey Pole - "Alice has always conducted herself with great professionalism when dealing with us (X-pole), She works hard to make her school the best it can possibly be by attending workshops and teacher jams and passing on her knowledge to her students. I have found Alice to be a great advocate of the Pole industry and she deserves her 4 star status"

CELEBRATING 4 YEARS OF POLE DANCING THIS JANUARY 2012 I’VE TAUGHT NEARLY 1000 STUDENTS WITH WELL OVER 1,000 TEACHING HOURS UNDER MY BELT

X-Pole PoleAway - the latest solution for removable studio poles.


For many years the installation and removal of x-poles has been time-consuming for studio owners, whilst one pole is easy to remove and install much more time is needed for pole dancing instructors with multiple poles and this can in turn result in higher rental charges, loss of income and an unintended extra workout!

X-Pole have designed the PoleAway system to solve the issues experienced by some and provide a quick and easy solution for pole dance teachers with satellite venues or studio owners who have multiple activities happening within their studios.

Check out this amazing new system and contact us to arrange to purchase a PoleAway System for your venue.
