So Denise, tell us a little bit about yourself and your pole journey?
My name is Denise Kremer, originally I´m from Germany but for the last 20 years I have lived in Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, Spain).
in 2010 ago I found my passion for Pole Dance so I started searching for a Pole Dance Studio on the Island but unfortunately there were none. At first I decided to order some DVD's online and try some self-training at home. After a few weeks I really wanted to learn more about correct techniques and safe training.
"From week to week my strength, flexibility and confidence was getting so much better. I just love the new challenge every day with pole."
Searching online I found Polercise Tenerife which is located on our neighbouring Island. After contacting Stefania Roberto (owner of Polercise Tenerife and PDC Approved 3 star pole dancing instructor) I started travelling once a week to Tenerife just to get some lessons. From week to week my strength, flexibility and confidence was getting so much better. I just love the new challenge every day with pole.
Some time later I completed my Basic Instructor Certification and decided to open a sister studio from Tenerife in Gran Canaria. With the support from Stefania I open the first studio in Gran Canaria – Polercise, GC, something completely new on the Island. Before long we had students from all over the world attending our pole classes. I had to start teaching classes in 2 or 3 languages at the same time, which was challenging but fulfillng.
I feel very happy to be able to share my experiences with my students. We've had successful 2 Workshops with Saulo Saramiento (World Pole Champion Pole Art 2012, Saulo has been a good friend and great support for me and we hope to attract more, experienced, Pole Idols in the future.
I have travelled a few Times to the USA to expand my training. I've had lessons with Fawnia Dietrich (PDC Pioneer) owner of Pole-fitness Las Vegas and Pole Expo Las Vegas, Leigh Ann Reilly owner of BeSpun Los Angeles, Stacy Hamilton from Boston Polefitness and and Alison Snipes from Orlando. I enjoyed every single class and made some new pole friends from all over the World. For the future I wish to continue learning, teaching and experimenting with new things. I am thankful for how my life has changed in the last few years and hope that, with pole, yours can too.
