Karrie Kuhn

Pole, Lyra, and Burlesque Instructor

Karrie first started her pole journey many years ago as a way to reconnect with herself after a bad break up and do something that she always wanted to do but was too scared to try. She attended her first class and instantly fell in love. Shortly after she started to add aerial into her already established love for pole and found even more to love with lyra. Soon after, she decided that she wanted to spread her love for this amazing world and attended SLCC where she received an associates degree in personal training and became an aerial instructor. Outside of teaching, she also regularly performs at various venues in and around Salt Lake. She also enjoys crafting and spending quality time with her family,  friends and two fur babies. She love sharing her passion with her students and hopes that this world can bring as much joy to your life as it has to hers.

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.
