Mateva

Born in 2000, Mateva is a rising Pole Dancer and Pole Dance instructor originating from Italy/Germany. Pole Dance has become her big love since 2017 and she has been sharing her passion through teaching in Vienna, Bavaria and now finally in Berlin, where she is rocking her best pole dance life.

“Teaching gives me so much joy and inspiration. Since I started with no background in dance or sport, I know that pole dancing is for everyone and anyone. I am here to show you how much fun the learning process can be!”

Maria

Maria has recently joined the PFB team as a pole dance instructor and is happy to share her passion with her students.

“I fell in love with movement when I experienced firsthand the mental and physical benefits of working out. In 2017 my passion drove me to start a Fitness and Health Youtube channel, which allowed me to broaden my knowledge through content creation and research. Curiosity kept me learning about new forms of movement until I finally tried Pole Dance in 2018, and I was hooked immediately. Imagine coming from a very repressive, conservative, chauvinistic country and suddenly stepping into a place where nobody is shamed, where sensuality is celebrated, diversity is honored, and also… people are STRONG AF!!! I was in awe!

Since that day, pole dancing has been helping me connect with my body, reject old belief systems and reframe my own ideas of sensuality, sexuality, and freedom.

I got the opportunity to become a teacher in 2021, and I feel blessed to provide that same safe and encouraging space for others to get stronger, shine bright, and enjoy movement.”

Trisha

Trisha is a professional pole dancer and teacher, originating from Bavaria and since 2022 based in Berlin.

‘’I started my dance journey as a kid taking ballet lessons. My ballet journey lasted roughly 10 years and built the base of my movement as of today. After all those years I got sick of the rigid rules of ballet and wished to explore more. After finding Daria Che on Instagram in 2018 I started taking pole lessons in Munich, where I was based. It started as a hobby but quickly with the love for pole turned into a profession.

Since then I have developed my skills in heels, spinning pole and static flow/ static rotation. I have taken classes with highly skilled trainers such as Estefania Jimenez, Marion Crampe, Lorenza Perrone and of course Daria Che as well. Now I am excited to share my knowledge with my students. I love to focus on details, instead of wild tricks and complicated shapes. I love to keep it playful yet clean and accurate, even with the most basic climbs. Let’s explore and play with the details. I can’t wait to dance with you!’’

Sabrina

Sabrina is a professional dancer, dance teacher and stretching and flexibility instructor. During her dance career she found a personal interest in working on flexibility and body posture. She began teaching stretching classes for dancers and non dancers in 2017 in Argentina and currently continues teaching and dancing in the city of Berlin.

‘’I believe that flexibility is something important for those who do sports, dance or for those who don’t do physical activity as well. Flexibility improves the quality of movement, prevents injuries and contractures. I believe that it is important to work on flexibility in an organic and unforced way. For pole dancers, the elasticity of the body can be a great tool to be able to perform figures and tricks in a fluid and tension-free way.’’

Movement education:

  • Professional dancer and classical dance teacher (School of Classical Dance from La Plata Argentina)
  • Stretching course by biomechanics method in Gurquel Alfred Institute (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
  • Stretching Instructor (AMAIP/ Asociación Mutual Argentina de Instructores y Profesores)

Rosa

Rosa Lisa Groll is a dancer and circus artist from Stuttgart based in Berlin. Already at a young age she started to take dance lessons and joined a youth circus to train various disciplines.

After one year abroad in America where she worked as a circus artist on the trapeze and the handstand art she came to Berlin to make an education as a dancer. Ever since she also has been going to the circus school „International Varieté of Arts“ in Kreuzberg. Besides she has been booked and working in the circus feld as a contortionist and trapeze artist in various shows and events.

I came to poleflow a year ago and am happy to be part of the team to work on flexibility and other cool tricks with you!

Amissa

Amissa is a mover, performer and monkey at heart. They lived their early human-years always dancing and playing in youth theater groups.

Amissa’s love for pole dancing started when they just arrived in Berlin. After just the first class they were immediately in love. Now, they realize it has meant a lot more than just finding an amazing hobby. It also made them find their way back to dancing, performing, creating. It opened doors to a new world, such as the world of aerial arts and circus arts in general. Amissa is very driven to live their life exploring movement in its broadest sense. They are always eager to learn more and more!

As a teacher, Amissa is passionate to pass on what has brought them so much joy. Every class, the students should feel good about themselves. Creating a safe(r) and wholesome space is much more important than pushing students to do difficult tricks!
