Train With Arloa
I've been poling off and on for the past 10 years. In that time I've tried many different studios and met tons of different teachers. For me, poling is a very personal experience where I open myself up to grow and to learn, but at the same time open myself up to feeling vulnerable and facing my fears. In this delicate state, it's been important to surround myself with talented teachers who have the unique ability to gently push me to my limit, while also making me feel completely safe at all times. Arloa offered me the perfect balance of everything I need in a teacher. Her bright personality and energy lifted me up every time I walked into a class. She took challenging moves and broke them down clearly step by step so that everyone completely understood and felt comfortable trying them. She paid close attention to my attempts and was able to quickly and clearly pinpoint areas to adjust. She's a skilled, seasoned professional, but she's also patient and understanding. She made me feel positive about any progress I made, no matter how small. And she never made me feel bad about wanting to use a crash mat, and even encouraged it! I feel very fortunate that I got to soak up everything I could from her in my time as her student - she took my pole game up a level and I couldn't be more thankful for that. Anyone that has the opportunity to work with her in the future is very lucky and I'm sure will feel the same way as I do.

Arloa was one of my first pole teachers when I started pole 5 years ago and is still one of the best teachers I've ever had. I took her classes beginner, intermediate and advanced class for first three years of pole and only stopped because I moved away. She develops really good relationships with all of her students so that, in classes or in private lessons, the experience is tailored to fit the individual's goals and abilities. Her performance workshops are amazing resources for anyone who wants to get into competing, performing or pole choreography. I took her performance workshop before my first big show and I've placed or won every competition I've taken part in after that. 100% would recommend Arloa to anyone, regardless of level or style, you'll see definite improvement and have a lot of fun!!!!!

Arloa is THE BEST!!!! I've taken pole classes with her for a number of years and I can honestly say she is an incredible teacher and her classes are an absolute blast! Teaching pole isn't something that every great pole dancer can do well, but Arloa, has a special talent at noticing exactly what you're doing wrong, and then explaining it clearly - which leads to very quick improvement for us students!!! As a pole dancer and performer, she is uniquely creative and does all of the coolest tricks and her students get to reap the benefits of this because she then comes and teaches us all of the coolest stuff I've never learned elsewhere!! I'm such a fan. :) Thank you for everything Arloa!!!!

Arloa is amazing! She is so talented, sweet, encouraging and knowledgeable. During my regular weekly training with her I have seen enormous gains in my strength, form and pole vocabulary. Her classes are the perfect mix of technique and fun! From the most basic spin to advanced moves, she pays incredible attention to detail to make sure you are doing it correctly and avoiding possible injury. We’ve worked on consistent conditioning, drops & tumbles, spins, tricks... and she always breaks things down in a way that makes sense and then builds on when she sees that I’m getting it. She’s truly helped take me to the next level and her classes always make my day!

Arloa is the best instructor and coach! She was my coach when I competed. During our private training sessions, I was able to learn so much more than I ever expected. Her explanations were always very clear and she noticed what adjustments and corrections were needed right away so I was able to improve my skills dramatically. She also praised me when I was successful which really helped to motivate me. She has a good sense of creating combos and pieces. In fact, many people told me my how unique and beautiful my competition piece was. She was also always supportive and caring and kept cheering me up whenever I felt disappointed and frustrated. She helped me both mentally and physically. I’m so glad she was my coach!!

Arloa is the best teacher in the world. Yes I’m biased but I was a flabby mom in my thirties and she pushed me to do more than I ever thought I was capable of. When I was taking classes with her, I was more proud of my accomplishments physically than I ever have been in my life. If you are luckily enough to be in an area to take a class from her, do yourself a favor and take it. You won’t regret it.

Arloa has been my pole dance trainer for over 2 years now and I’ve seen tremendous improvement in my technique and strength. Arloa is very familiar with all the competition rules and regulations and tailored my training accordingly. Arloa puts great emphasis in making sure you are learning all the moves with the correct technique. She is also great at breaking down complicated tricks and making them seem easy and doable. Arloa is also great with choreography for competition pieces. She helped me choose music and tailored my dance piece to the song. I highly recommend her for improving your pole technique, competition training or just learning pole for fun!

Working with Arloa has been a great experience. Her emphasis on technique and eye for detail have allowed me to master moves I struggled with for years. With her encouragement and guidance I have reached my pole goals and beyond. Best of all, her kindness and patience help keep my spirits up even when I'm struggling.

Arloa is the BEST! When I first started poling, I thought there was no way I could pull off these moves. But after a few weeks, I got better, I was surprised at what my body was capable of doing and it's was all thanks to Arloa. She pushes you when she knows you can do better, but makes sure you're doing everything safely. Also, she's just a delight to be around :) I've taken everything from beginner to intermediate classes with her and I couldn't recommend her more!!
