Meet Our Instructors


April Miller

Pole Instructor

April's introduction to pole came when she decided that she was not enjoying her day to day workouts anymore.  On the hunt for something new and exciting, she quickly found her love for pole.  While she dabbles in much of the aparti that the aerial arts has, nothing has given her the confidence nor the fun workout and strength that pole has.  Teaching is also one of her passions as she loves to watch the growth of each person's journey.  She sees the same capacity and more in each of her students.  It is not just a workout for her...It is a way for emotional healing in so many areas and she is more than grateful to share that with anyone she can.

Julia Jibson

Pole, Chair Dance, and Aerial Hammock Instructor

Julia began training in ballet, contemporary and hip hop at the age of 13. She was on her high school dance team and danced competitively with a studio for 2-3 years. Dancing has always been a form of therapeutic movement and expression for her. It has helped her through some extremely difficult points in her life and she encourages everyone to put a little motion into their day-to-day lives. She is working towards her dream of becoming a professional choreographer and would love to take pole dancing to a competitive or professional level. Julia has always enjoyed teaching and watching those around her grow and progress. She is all about positivity and emotional release through movement. She is very excited to share the love of dance and hopes that you can utilize the skill in your daily life.

She has competed in several local and national competitions in both pole and Lyra. Michelle enjoys teaching and being a part of students successes and the ever supportive aerial community! 


Billie Jean 

Pole and Flexibility Instructor

Billie Jean fell in love with pole after the first spin. Her journey started in 2018, attending as many classes as she could. Her passion for pole has grown even more now that she gets to teach and share it with others. Pole has sculpted her into a stronger, confident, and more passionate person. She loves witnessing the growth and joy that pole brings to an individual. Expect a lot of encouragement and laughter and come ready to have a great time!



Harmony Founder/Instructor

Alexis has always had a passion for dance and experiencing life through movement. Living in in her van for three years while traveling the country provided the opportunity to take classes from many talented people. The pandemic halted her travels and she knew that providing a safe space for people to experience dance in a way they may never have before was a purpose she wanted to chase. Harmony Fitness Studio opened it's doors on February 8, 2021 and it has been an honor to serve the community while creating meaningful friendships. The members and instructors make Harmony a wonderful place to dance, exercise, and fly!
