Tiina is South Pole Studio’s owner and first instructor. Her roots are in Germany, where she attended professional ballet school and studied contemporary dance and theater. Having trained and taught pole, as well as competed, locally and internationally, what she brings to the classroom is a vast knowledge of teaching structures and training techniques.

At South Pole she teaches beginner to advanced levels as well as lyra, flexibility, floorwork, heels pole and many more pole orientated disciplines. When it comes to class her x-factor is a professional and disciplined approach, strongly underlined by her light and playful temperament.


Imke is South Pole’s first homegrown instructor. Having started aerial dance in 2019 at South Pole Studio, it quickly developed from hobby to passion to obsession. An unrivaled fascination for the upside down makes Imke the obvious choice for our aerial hoop instructor.
Always keen to try new things; Imke’s eagerness, knowledge of technique and attention to detail, will ensure that you get the most out of every class.
Why become an instructor?
“I am passionate about sharing my love for dance and exploration, so I love teaching and seeing students develop their own thing!”


Sara started training ballet, modern, contemporary.. and almost every other dance form under the sun, at a young age. This no doubt paved the way to her natural affinity for pole and aerial dance. Certified as a contortion, flexibility and acrobatics coach, her knowledge and practice is always raising the bar in her flexibility and pole classes.
Her passion is not only dance and movement, but also teaching. She loves bringing out the best in people, helping them find their strengths and achieve their goals… and most of all having fun while doing so.


Lia‘s pole journey began in 2019 as the culmination of her constant search for creative outlets. She is a fine art student who spent her formative years learning dance and attending circus training. So, finding this art-form with the perfect blend of strength, flexibility and performance, she naturally blossomed on the pole.
What motivated you to teach?
– ” I want to teach others, so they can experience the same joy I do while dancing, after all, what is art if you cant share it.”


Pole found Rowan in her early twenties and instantly re-awakened her inner acrobat. She was a gymnast in primary school, so challenging both mind and body to achieve amazing feats is her home turf. A passionate teacher who loves to explore expression through movement, her classes are bound to inspire and challenge you.


Ziyaan is a born dancer and movement enthusiast. A medical student by day and pole dancer by night, she is a creative force to be reckoned with. When you come to your first class at South Pole Studio, you will be learning your basics from this powerhouse.

What has pole brought to your life? “Pole has been medicine for me.”


Anja’s gift for making hard things easy and challenges fun, for explaining it just the right way.. is an invaluable talent. Focusing on you getting that next breakthrough or tackling your nemesis move is where she thrives.
Shaped from a young age by rhythmic gymnastics, modern dancing and water polo in high school and varsity, she is strong! Her training having progressed into pole in 2019, she quickly rose through the ranks and now her strong-suit is ‘big splitty moves’.
