There is a wave of professional pole talent that is sweeping through Texas, to share their skill and experience with us. With all of the upcoming competitions, this is the perfect way to get some additional (and specialized) practice in. I think that having an opportunity to work with the pros has a big impact on our growth and development.
One pro that I’m extra excited about is Aerial Amy. The Flight Club creator will be here early next month and has a robust lineup of workshops that offer something for every one of us.
Amy kicks off her workshop tour at The Girls Room Friday night.
Friday, September 7th 6:00pm – 7:30pm Instructor Class

Amy hung up her ballet shoes at the tender age of 4, after seeing her cousin come home in bloody pointe shoes. After that, it was a long dance drought until a few years after graduating from NYU, when she found pole dancing classes and quickly fell in love. She found pole dancing as a means of staying in shape and re-connecting to her sensual side and has found that it has given her enormous physical strength and conditioning– besides being ridiculously fun and continually challenging!
Amy’s goal is to build a healthy self confidence from within by helping you gain strength, sass, and skills on the pole. She truly believes that all women are beautiful, that all hips are inherently sexy no matter what size, shape, or color– and that anyone can pole dance.
Currently she lives and works in Manhattan, managing construction by day and flying weightless at night teaching pole classes at Shockra Studios.
