PDC Approved 4 Star Pole Dancing Instructor Andi Ariseanu.
Andi Ariseanu is the principal instructor at Active Cherry in Eastbourne, UK. Andi ActiveCherry has been doing pole and aerial since 2007. She judged her first competition in 2011 and has since been lucky enough to be invited to judge many more, including being head judge at Miss Pole Dance UK Semi Pro's, Doubles and Amateurs, and on the judges table at IPAAT,(formerly known as EPDC) and the Intercontinental Championships.
In 2015 Andi won the Kent Pole Championships in the professional category.
Andi has a collection of weird and wonderful aerial equipment which she is happy to use for performances including her crescent moon, spiral, aerial pole and prism.
Andi's passion comes from making pole and aerial accessible to everyone. She loves to push people to achieve their full potential and help people on their way to being a better version of themselves. She believes that anyone can achieve their dreams if they try hard enough and she's happy to help people along that journey.
Andi is known for her fluidity as a performer and her talent of being able to bring emotion and soul to any performance. She loves to choreograph for any level of performer and her experience as a judge makes her an invaluable resource for any performer wishing to compete.
Andi received her two 4 star references from Julie Burns from Solent Aerial Arts School and Nicola Ghalmi from Dance Inspires.
Julie's reference - "Andi is a well know name in the pole industry and has contributed to the community in a positive light, supporting other instructors, competitions and showcases to name a few.
Andi has supported the Solent Pole and Aerial Hoop competition in the past and is this year (2015) coming back to judge for us. Andi is very supportive of all PDC registered/approved instructors and schools, we have had many chats supporting each other with the trials of running your own studio. I have the up-most respect for Andi and wish her all the best for the future.Andi has also introduced me to the world of spiral arts."
Nicola's reference - "Andi is a super star – on many occasions she has provided me with support, and I personally feel that she is a shining example of what people within the pole industry should be like – she is a good friend and a person in my support network that I am grateful to have.
Personal attributes and friendship aside, Andi’s teaching methods and style are exemplary and I have absorbed many of these techniques within my own teaching. She has a gentle approach style and it is evident to see that when she is teaching, that she has the student’s needs and wants at the forefront of her mind.
Andi is always friendly and approachable, and as a friend or teacher, I believe that these attributes are what her students find attractive in going to her studio to learn."
