Alice Milner achieves PDC Approved 4 star instructor status.
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"
