Brittany 

POLE fitness & Low Flow + Floor werk

A lifelong performer from Orlando, Brittany fell in love with pole dance in 2014 when she started taking classes as a creative outlet after graduating from college. This love turned into a craving for all things upside down and suspended, adding on a love for lyra, chair dance, aerial silks, aerial hammock, and Bungee Workout.

Under Sarah Jade’s training, Brittany found her calling: body waves, glitter, and high heels. Upon moving to Baton Rouge, Brittany discovered TWRL and has been smitten since day one! Brittany enjoys breaking down movement, teaching safe techniques, and seeing the excitement on students’ faces when they nail a move. She also takes any opportunity to get on the stage, having performed at showcases such as Bad to the Chrome, Pole Love: A Benefit for Pulse, and the International Pole Convention. Outside the studio, she is a university librarian with a master’s degree in Library and Information Studies. Inside the studio, she is excited to share her passion for pole dance with the TWRL community! Brittany’s favorite styles of pole are classique and exotic and she loves to live life on the lower third of the pole. Some of her favorite pole moves include Dangerous Bird, Ballerina, and Rockstar.
