Reference from Kerrey Warr "Lucille Marshall is an excellent teacher who provides a safe environment to train in. Her classes are well structured with a wide range of techniques covered. Coming from a dance background and understanding how the body works gives her a great advantage when it comes to teaching pole. Students feel confident when working with Lucille as they are warmed up correctly, well prepared with clear instructions given and spotted when applicable. Lucille is also a great ambassador for the pole world."
