PDC Approved 4 Star Pole Dancing Instructor Nicola Burke
Nicola Burke started teaching in 2011 having initially started her pole dance journey in 2007. Nicola runs her own pole dance school in Stockport called Zero Gravity Pole Studio.
Nicola teaches from brand new beginner up to advanced pole. Nicola is well known within the UK pole industry as a accomplished pole performer, judge and teacher. Nicola received her references, to support her 4 star instructor application from fellow PDC pole instructors Annie Norris, Naomi Burkitt and Tiffany Green.
Annie Norris said "Nicola is a very happy and beautiful person. When you meet her you can be sure to smile and have a great time. She is extremely hard working with her teaching but has created a
wonderful work life balance knowing when to put a cap on how many private lessons she teaches to make sure her students get the best quality teaching. With her pole dancing doubles she is extremely creative and trains hard."
Naomi Burkitt said "Nicola was the first instructor I ever had when i first began Pole Dancing. After leaving my first class I felt inspired. Her classes are fun and energetic and she always challenges you to the be the best you can be. Nicola pays great care and attention to people safety insuring that everyone uses crash mats and that everyone is spotting correctly."
Tiffany Green said "Over the past seven years I have seen Nicola grow into the most incredible teacher. She is supportive and also constantly thrives off other students success. She is professional in every aspect of what she does, yet she brings such a friendly and fun vibe to the classes she teaches. Nicola is extremely patient and understand that each student leads at a different pace.
Nicola has helped me to become the pole dancer and instructor that I am today and I think i speak for everyone at Zero Gravity when I say we don’t know where we would be without her.
