Hi I’m Claire, the founder of Pole Sessions. I’ve been poling for a number of years. I’m fully qualified and have attended lessons around the country with some of the world’s best pole dancers and I’m also self-taught. I’d say my style is strong tricks and power holds!
Pole dancing is my passion. I first tried pole dancing after the birth of my baby. I wanted to try and regain my fitness and tone up my body, but hated going to the gym for long grueling workouts. Once I’d started the weight dropped off and I looked forward to each session. It was like a social night!
I started Pole Sessions in Manchester as a tribute to my grandmother. Whilst she was ill in hospital a pole dancer came on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, she knew how much I loved pole as I was always showing her my pictures and videos! She told me to always go for my dreams, believe in myself and share my passion for pole fitness. Sadly she passed away a week later and I opened Pole Sessions in her memory.
During this journey, I noticed that many of the women around me had lost themselves in day to day life. They gave so much to the world around them, but had forgot to give to themselves.
Our motto ‘Discover a new you…’ came from watching the people I taught changing their personalities with each lesson. Gone were the shy, quiet women and what emerged was confident and empowered ladies!
Our commitment and friendly classes gained us a great reputation with our students throughout the years, especially the nervous students wanting to take up pole dance classes.
I love my job!
