    Maroussia Molimard started ballet when she was 3 years old. When she turned 18, she saw a documentary about pole dancing and she loved it. Sadly, there weren’t any pole studios in France in 2008. Faith works in mysterious ways: years later she moved to Amsterdam and in 2015 she found PDF! She loves Power Pole and all kinds of strength moves, but what she loves most is the confidence and strength in being a woman which she gained through pole dancing. Pole dancing makes her happy and teaching others how to pole dance even more. It is simply her biggest passion in life.

    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!
