Megan began gymnastics at the ripe old age of 4 at the Geelong Gymnastics Centre where she flipped her way for 11yrs to level 8 National. It was there she discovered her love for dance when she joined ‘Gym danze’ a group which combined gymnastics with a bit of hip hop. Regular performances at the Supercats basketball games and in the annual ‘Wish on a star’ concert helped her develop the passion for performing.
It wasn’t until her teen years that she started dancing and teaching hip hop for a local dance school.

She was a dedicated calisthenics girl for over ten years, competing and performing, she has also been involved in many other dance styles from Ballet to Latin American.
Having lived in Geelong her whole life Alex wanted a change from the usual dance classes and gym workouts and was looking for something totally different, then she walked past a sign for Kylie J Pole Studio on Ryrie Street!

Stephanie began her pole journey back in 2011 when she, her sister & their friend signed up for classes after attending a hens party at the studio and has never looked back!!
To Stephanie, pole was the perfect way to have fun, get fit and to condition and strengthen her core after having several abdominal surgeries.
Though she had no prior dance or gymnastics training, Stephanie found she was a natural with dance and flexibility and started forming her love for all things Pole!
Pru began pole on 2012 in Shepparton and instantly fell in love with the idea of exercising in heels!

Michelle grew up in Melbourne where she developed her love for dance and performance from a young age. After a year of Calisthenics, she made the change to Gymnastics at the age of 6 and competed for 7 years around Victoria.
Not long after, Michelle become addicted to dance and attended every class available at her local dance studio, including Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Tap and Acrobatics. Unfortunately during her teens she severely damaged her back, which in turn stopped any form of dance. It took over 6 years for Michelle’s back to recover and by the time it did, she felt all dance opportunities were over. Until she discovered Pole!

Maddison “Ophelia Flower” is a performer like no other. Her love and passion for the art of Burlesque is visible in every creative, sexy, funny, and vivacious routine she performs.
Although Ophelia is a newcomer to the glamorous Burlesque world, she is not one to shy away from the spotlight. She began just over 12 months ago after being inspired and mentored by the beautiful, naughty and hilariously talented Elena Gabrielle. Elena took Ophelia under her wing and taught her to push the boundaries, in all ways possible. It was from then on that she was hooked.
Cupcake is our resident Studio fur baby.
This little old girl has been part of the studio since the beginning in 2011 and if she has the energy, will be there to greet you at the door when you come in. If not, you will be sure to hear her snoring from behind the desk.
The green beanbag is her favourite and she often likes to steal the reception chair. Our very sweet natured mascot we call the 100 year old teddy bear, she also answers to Cuppy, Cupstar, Cakey and The Cup.
Oooh AND she really loves a pat or a hug, so don’t be shy.
