PDC Approved Pole Dancing Instructor Virginia Zdesar.
Virginia Zdesar joined the Pole Dance Community in 2018. Virginia has many years of pole dancing experience and has completed several PDC Approved Teacher Training Courses. Virginia currently teaches in the UK but has also taught in the Middle East.
"I began using Pole many, many years ago as an alternative sport, alternative to the confines of my traditional gym workout. I learnt my Pole fitness skills in London in 2008, where I completed the advanced levels with the wonderful Pole Dancing Champion and PDC Pioneer, Elena Gibson at her school in London.
I then trained with the universally endorsed group operated by the world renowned KT Coates, PDC Approved Teacher Training Vertical Dance. With KT, I gained the qualifications and certifications that are internationally recognised and endorsed by REPS, Skills Active, ACE, PDC & IPSF which has given me the ability to do what I love and enable others to as well.
I first started teaching in 2009 in the Middle East where I lived for a few years and in 2011 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Teaching pole in Bahrain was quite unique but incredibly rewarding being able to bring something so new to the island.
In 2015, whist working on the committee for the IPSF for press and sponsorship, I brought The Sunday Telegraph magazine, Stella, to the London World Pole Sports Championships. They did a 5 page spread on the event and really celebrated pole for the middle classes and as a sport.
Now two daughters in and 42 years old, I'm in the best shape of my life. I feel better, stronger, more confident than at any other time in my life. For me, teaching pole it is the perfect escape from balancing a busy property career and raising a family.
But my biggest reward comes from transforming and revitalising the lives of my students. I teach 121 or small groups in my purpose built studio and clinic along side hoop and aerial silks enables my clients to find their own aerial niche. I am a qualified and published nutritionist so I am able to help my clients balance exercise with nutrition so they can perform and look their optimum best.
