Seliquere, Latin for “to be fluid”, lives up to her name by oozing across the floor, up and down the pole, and into your heart. She combines flowy and drippy movement with high-energy bursts of fun and dynamics. 

With a movement background in dance, gymnastics, and acrobatics, and a theoretical background in physiology, anatomy, and kinesiology, Seliquere places great importance on understanding the interaction between our body (muscle, bone, tendon, ligaments) and the movement we create. She emphasizes safety and longevity when it comes to dancing, and hopes all her students can continue to create beautiful art for decades to come. 

You’ll find lots of enthusiasm, texture enunciation, and fluidity in her class, as well as a safe place to explore new movements, make mistakes, and ask questions. A proud member of the queer community, Seliquere asserts that pole, sensual movement, and dancing is for everybody, every gender identity, and every sexual orientation. There is no greater joy than authentic self-expression, and she hopes you can find that joy with her during class.

Francesca grew up in Rome, Italy. She is a pole dance teacher, performer and artist.

Francesca first began practicing aerial dance at 23, and soon after started pole dancing as well. She made her first pole dance teaching experience back in Rome, and upon moving to Berlin continued teaching and performing here.​

She loves to share her passion to pole with other people. She believes the challenge of pole dancing sparks something amazing and unique inside of our bodies and minds. The excitement of learning the next pole move, gives her an incredible drive in life.

Francesca is also certified ashtanga vinyasa yoga teacher (2019). She loves to incorporate yoga technique and approach in her warm up and teaching – yoga and pole to her are complementary activities for the body & mind.

Francesca performs around Europe and in Berlin with different circus companies and crew, as a clown and as a pole dancer.

“I was never a confident woman. But after I had discovered my passion for pole dancing, everything changed. The confidence and strength it has given me was surprising to say the least. It’s a place where you can leave your thoughts and worries behind and express yourself freely. I hope to share the same passion and motivation with my students.’’

Andrea started gymnastics at 8 years-old and as she turned 11, changed to Trampoline – where she competed in national and international championships. When she started her studies she had to quit sports, which was very difficult. One day she was watching a video from a Pole dancer and was so intrigued she knew she had to try it right away! After her first class, she only regretted not starting earlier. She began additionally taking Ballet and Modern Jazz courses to improve her dancing skills and meanwhile took part, during four consecutive summers, of an aerial show with my circus school.

Since then she has taken workshops with many famous Pole Stars and many classes. Moreover, her gymnastics background allowed her to learn very fast and already in 2015 she started teaching in her Pole Studio “Pole Dance Mallorca” (her hometown). In 2017, she decided to move to Germany to continue her professional career. When she first learnt heels flow in Germany she fell in love until at some point she was even more focused on flowing on those super high heels, than nailing tricks like the fonji, the phoenix. In 2018, she started teaching heels/sensual flow in Unique Pole Darmstadt, and after one year I joined “The Basement” Team in Offenbach to teach the spinning Pole courses.  

In 2021 she moved to Berlin and now is a part of our Pole Flow teams as heels and pole technique instructor. ‘’My biggest passion right now is just to put on music and improvise (with or without heels). I feel very inspired with the pole flow vibes and very excited to share my love to pole with PFB students!’’

Coming from a background of gymnastics, jazz dance and parkour, pole dance is quite honestly the fulfillment of Robyin’s dreams in movement and self-expression.

Robyn teaches pole technique for all levels. @polerobyn

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!

Chrisitina comes from a smalltown in southern Indiana and since a few years has been based in Berlin as a pole, movement & flexibility trainer.

“My first connection to movement was through gymnastics. I fell in love with acrobatics, but after moving away my movement journey soon changed to sports and later on, to dance. I started with Latin dance and later, pole dance.

I got into pole because I wanted to feel more in touch with myself and my body. I wanted the confidence pole dancers have and the idgaf-what-you-think-about-me attitude. Plus the combination of body + mind +sensuality + strength captivated me.

I love teaching poles because it’s empowering. It allows for our bodies to be this creative work of art that we’re free to move and mold as we please. It lifts physically and mentally and I love seeing students leave my class glowing.”

@christinaaojeda

She 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.’’

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.

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!’’

During her studies in 2015 she randomly stumbled upon a pole dancing video and immediately looked up pole classes not knowing how much this step will change her life. From then on she fell in love and took all the pole classes she could afford in Berlin until she started teaching others in 2018. She now focuses more on how to improve as an instructor in order to provide a safe space for everyone who joins her classes.

As a teacher, I like to enable my students to overcome their limits, discover new skills and polish flowing moves, without ever forgetting that it is a way to express ourselves.”

Pole dance gives me the freedom to really be myself, by helping me to find the strength to cope with my fears. As a teacher, I like to enable my students to overcome their limits, discover new skills and polish flowing moves, without ever forgetting that it is a way to express ourselves.”

Valeriia Melnyk

Valeriia is a professional Pole Dancer from Kyiv, Ukraine who has relocated to Berlin. She has over 8 years of experience as a pole dancer and is a certified instructor by the Ukrainian Pole Sport Federation. She has also participated and made it to finals in numerous Ukrainian championships and festivals.

‘’Dance is an expression that comes from inside. I am convinced that everyone can learn to live their feelings, explore their emotions and reach heightened states through dance. I am ready to share with you my knowledge, energy and, of course, my sensual choreography.’’

The focus of classes will be about sensual embodiment and the feeling of the dance. Valeriia will show you how to create lightness, airiness and beautiful aesthetic lines while dancing. We will focus on turning our attention inward, listen to our bodies and feel how the body wants to manifest itself through dance. It will be sensual, lyrical and feminine“.

Huong (she/her)

Huong has been dancing since she was a child.

At the age of 8 she joined a Vietnamese dance group based in Berlin and performed at various events (e.g. Karneval der Kulturen). She then moved on to dance Hip Hop for a year and paused to focus on school and college after. During her studies in 2015 she randomly stumbled upon a pole dancing video and immediately looked up pole classes not knowing how much this step will change her life. From then on she fell in love and took all the pole classes she could afford in Berlin until she started teaching others in 2018. She now focuses more on how to improve as an instructor in order to provide a safe space for everyone who joins her classes.
