USC instructors

Melina Knol dances a lot of different styles. Hiphop, classic ballet, latin, you name it! Five year ago, she tried pole dancing for the first time and immediately fell in love with it. For Melina, it is a great combination between artristry and sports. Besides her passion for pole dancing, she graduated at the AUAS as a Nutritionist.

Daisy van Dort danced since an early age, but once she discovered that Dance Academy just wasn’t her thing, she let go of this passion. Soon after this decision she was asked to teach jazz, ballet and contemporary dance and just like that, dancing was back in her life. A couple of years later she left The Netherlands to travel, work and study abroad and once again she left dancing behind. Finally in New Zealand she bumped into pole dancing and half a year later she started teaching. Four years later she moved back to Amsterdam where she started her journey into aerial hoop. Besides hoop she loves pole and Daisy is determined to never leave her passion behind again!

Wear and gear

Wear comfortable clothing in which you can move easily. You will dance barefoot. In order to have enough grip on the pole we advise to wear shorts.
